Brian Coleman and the red button

Here's a frightening thought. What if Brian Coleman were not to lose his Barnet and Camden seat on the Greater London Authority next May? What if his political career were not stopped in its tracks? What if he were to go higher? It doesn't bear thinking about, does it?

Why, one day he might be put in charge of something seriously important, strategic, something where his mistakes might put people's lives in danger. Er, hang on a minute, he already is: the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority!

P.S. Film quiz points for the name of the film and the character depicted here.

I'll shut up now and let Mrs Angry have a go next time.

Appropriately, Brain - I mean Peter - was also in the "Lavender Hill Mob", subtitle "The Men who Broke the Bank".
