Oh god not again? He’s such a pompous oaf. This is Coleman’s second crack at Chair – he introduced the badge of office last time. I respected Sally Hamwee’s decision not to use it when she took over from Coleman’s first stint – the badge is an anachronism, and it’s all about trying to raise the chairman of the GLA above other GLA members and, more importantly, above the public. Utterly pointless.
Presumably you mean “shore up” the Muslim vote rather than “sure up”!
