Statement to voters

My political life includes service as a Stafford Borough Councillor for 24 years, serving as the Chair of its Environmental Services, its Deputy Leader and its Mayor when I was a member of the Labour Party. I joined the much more not only environmentally aware but socially aware Green Party in 2008.

Over the years I influenced a number of environmental issues including successfully lobbying for balancing reservoirs to prevent local flooding, , enforcing limits to a local industrial polluter and setting up the town’s first kerbside recycling scheme. I have campaigned against unemployment, reductions to local services and the ‘bedroom tax etc.

Having grown up on a small farm, I am keenly aware of the preciousness and precariousness of our environment. Beyond the destructions wrought by climate change, I am deeply concerned about the erosion of soil fertility, of biodiversity and of essential raw materials. Equally, however, I am outraged at the threats to our social fabric, as evidenced by the increasing victimisation of the most vulnerable in our society and the shameless protection of the most privileged..

I took up a post as a sociology lecturer in Further Education in Stafford in 1971 ; I continue to live there, happily married to my wife Robin. I was the Green Party Parliamentary Candidate for Stafford in 2010 and 2015 and am proud to have now been chosen by the Staffordshire Moorlands -- an area I have grown to be fond of whilst working and visiting—for 2017 .
