Freer receives richly deserved accolade from Private Eye

The local Times reports that Private Eye has given Barnet Council leader Mike Freer their 'Banker of the Year' award for his role - knowing nothing about it - in the £27.4 million loss of Barnet money in failed Icelandic banks. It doesn't look like the story is reported on the Private Eye website yet, but soon perhaps.

In the meantime, enjoy the joke. And then let's get down to the serious business of opposing Freer's disastrous budget cut proposals. In the first place, we need to save Barnet Welfare Rights Unit!
