Fire Brigade Union: Brian Coleman was wrong

A footnote to yesterday’s post about Brian Coleman, who seems to think he knows better than the Fire Brigade about when people should call them – here is an extract from an email sent by the Fire Brigade Union to their London branches:

The FBU’s regional secretary for London, Joe MacVeigh, said, “Councillor Coleman needs to decide whether he wants to be a serious political figure or whether he wants to continue playing the role of complete buffoon. He holds a position of enormous responsibility, and he should be dignified and statesmanlike in everything he does. Instead, he blunders around, whipping up controversy, and trying to draw attention to himself at every opportunity. Such an attitude does not befit the office of head of the world’s third largest fire and rescue service. His remarks about [Lynne Featherstone] were disgraceful. If an ordinary firefighter had said such a thing to a female colleague, he would almost certainly have been facing disciplinary action.”
