Brian Coleman's response on being found on Monday to have breached the councillors' code of conduct is to defy the penalty, which was to apologise to those residents to whom he had sent rude emails. He is considering appealing the decision.
His lawyer didn't mind invoking the Human Rights Act during the hearing, I read. (I wasn't there - Mrs Angry, the Barnet Eye and the local papers, the Barnet Press and Times series, have the full story.)
Just thought I'd remind people of the last time Coleman expressed himself publicly on the subject of human rights.
