The New Statesman have, no doubt, done their research before asking Councillor Coleman to write this piece. One can only assume they regard him something of an expert in this
Councillor Coleman seems to have stirred up a huge row amongst Conservative activists on the very popular Conservativehome.com blog. See here. Oh well, we'll sure the Councillor Coleman AM will

Are we so old and stuffy that we are offended by the your end to the article, "Oh, and before you ask, yes I am and I am open to offers.".

Surely there are other places to seek companionship than the New Statesman?
