Cllr Freer the Leader of Barnet Council has won Private Eye’s “Banker of the Year Award”, “One man who raised cluelessness to an art form was the Tory leader of the London borough of Barnet, Mike Freer. He told councillors that he couldn’t be blamed for the council losing £27.4m in dodgy Icelandic banks because he had never bothered to review the council’s investments. Ever. And in a former life he used to be, er, a banker. Quite.”

      I don’t agree with Mae West that all publicity is good publicity but if it makes him happy……….
      I do disagree with Nick Clegg on Israel. The Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel are seeing him Tuesday to strongly put our point of view. I am heartened however by Chris Huhne’s stand on antisemitism.

      How do you feel about the Welfare Rights Unit being abolished at a time of hardship?
