My colleague on the London Assembly, Brian Coleman, has been getting himself in hot water again.
In an era when many politicians refuse to have an opinion on anything for fear of a bad headline, Brian's candour can be refreshing. The by-product of that candour is the occasional gaff.
And his recent comments about expenses, transparency, bloggers and the work rate of fellow Assembly Members sits squarely in the gaff side of the equation.
I have no doubt that Brian will see the light over expenses and with both Roger Evans (group leader) and I (dept group leader) being regular bloggers you might even find Brian taking that up too.
Only don't hold your breath on blogging front.
