Cometh the hour, cometh the man

There is a fascinating post on the Tory blogsite Conservative Home urging Tories to get behind Brian Coleman in his dispute with the London Region of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU). The post is titled "A time to support Brian Coleman" and it starts
The Bible tells us:

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven...
This tells you a lot about the low regard in which Coleman is held by even his own party members. The post is interesting; some of the comments are fascinating.
The problem is that Coleman has made so many other blunders that I cannot trust him. He simply should not be in charge of anything.
...
It might be easier to support Brian Coleman if he wasn't such a parasite himself.

Coming out with statements like "We can sack them all like Ronald Reagan did the Air Traffic Controllers" isn't exactly sensible.

Boris should sack him and get someone in who can do the job competently.
...
I sat and cringed as he was interviewed on last night's ITV "London Tonight"! In that loud pin-striped suit he comes across as an appalling caricature of a Tory!
With friends like these...

I've just updated my blog after reading the gutwrenchingly awful story about the dispute in the Mail on Sunday, quoting Mr Toad, and lambasting the firefighters for rejecting the new shifts in case they interfere with their other jobs, such as being models for Versace. Er: really!

There are some good jokes on the Facebook page!

When I next get to meet Ron [Dobson - LFB commissioner] and Coleman I'm gonna ask them the same question....What aisle has the frozen pizzas?

P.S. Not that I wouldn't be proud to have a job in a supermarket. I just doubt that Coleman or his sidekick would feel that way.
