Brian Gordon to be withdrawn as Mayor

We the undersigned petition the council to block the appointment of Brian Gordon as Mayor of Barnet.

Brian Gordon was elected by councillors to serve as Barnet Mayor for the term of 2020/21. He must be withdrawn as his values and behaviour are not fitting of a leadership position. In 2007 he attended a party dressed as Nelson Mandela, using blackface to complete his costume. He has a controversial track record on a number of topics including, LGBTQ+ education in schools, the role of women and immigration. He is not representative of the views and values of Barnet residents and therefore should not represent us. Barnet is a proud multicultural borough and there is no place for intolerance especially from those who represent us as a community. Respect for others is a value within the Barnet Constitution and this is not a value that Brian Gordon is shown to hold in high regard.
