London Assemblyman Brian Coleman - the self-proclaimed King of Bling - has spoken to the Ham&High about the benefits of being a gay councillor (he doesn't have to worry about a nagging wife who wants to be taken on a night out) his admiration for Margaret Thatcher, and his amazing attack on election opponent Nicky Gavron.
