What's monotonous, loud and irritating, and, inexplicably, can't be banned? No, not Brian Coleman but the vuvuzela, of course. At last, however, someone has found a good use for them - and it's such a good use that they are completely redeemed in my eyes!
The Fire Brigades Union (FBU) turned up at London Fire Brigade HQ with a vuvuzela orchestra to serenade the chair of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, yes, Brian Coleman. I'll bet he hated it!
Coleman has practically declared war on the FBU, so there is no risk of the trade unionists alienating him. About the only thing one can hope to do in order to stop the unstoppable Coleman is get on his nerves. It is useless trying to reason with him, or to appeal to his better side...
Here's a clip which conveys how inane and therefore how effective against the enemy the FBU protest was.
Thanks to Joe Rob of the Brian Coleman (aka Mr Toad) has got to go! blog for alerting us to this.
