“British Official wants Pegasus Airlines North Cyprus adverts banned in London
Tuesday, February 14, 2012 by Name & Address Supplied

It would seem that Brian Coleman has his ‘Y’ fronts in a twist over an advertisement on the London Underground for flights to North Cyprus. One has to wonder why Mr Coleman is getting into such a lather over something that has been happening for years, i.e. people flying to and from North Cyprus.

Now if you consider that the borders between the North and South are open and that the authorities on both sides of the border are well aware that people do fly into RoC airports and then cross the border to spend their holiday/return home to North Cyprus on a daily basis, why if the RoC authorities are bothered do they allow this. Simple, money money money.

Mr Coleman if the authorities in the RoC are perfectly happy to accept this way of travelling to North Cyprus, what is your problem?

“The advert should be removed from the London Underground immediately. Flights to Turkish-occupied North Cyprus have been banned for 37 years – which means that advertising flights to North Cyprus, implying it is just another region in Turkey, is clearly misleading”.

“Pegasus has fallen foul of Advertising Standard Authority before and withdrew a very similar advert after a complaint in 2009.’

Can I make a suggestion Mr. Coleman, concentrate on your own job, let the Advertising Standards do their job or are you looking for a nice cheap holiday in the RoC? The GLA pay your salary, not the RoC.

Perhaps when you talk to Boris Johnson, he will give you the same advice.

I have no love for Pegasus Airline, not would I ever travel with them, not because I do not think they should fly the UK to TRNC route, no my reason is very personal, they employ or employed Yuksel Yilmaz, the landowner and the author of all Kulaksiz 5′s problems.”

Those who read the above will be pleased to see the final outcome for Mr. Coleman. Extreme, but when you do things so publicly do not be surprised if your actions has consequences. With that in mind, it would be nice to see some consequences for the action of wrong doers in north Cyprus. We can but hope and dream. When is Mr Yilmaz going to get his?

“The process to expel disgraced Barnet councillor Brian Coleman from the Conservative party is set to begin this evening, the Times Series understands. Officials at the party’s Chipping Garnet branch headquarters, where the former mayor registers, are due to meet this evening to outline plans to revoke his membership.

The Totteridge representative has been suspended from the national party since he was charged with assaulting mother-of-two Helen Michael in Finchley High Road in September Earlier this month, the once head of the London Fire Authority pleaded guilty to the charge and was made to pay almost £1,400 in fines and costs.
