I became a member of the Labour Party in 2007, after 30 years of thinking about it.

I will tell you more about why I did this in my blogs in due course!

Now that I am here, and an active member of Stafford Labour Party my own particular interest is in opening up the process of democracy and making sure that more people can contribute to informed decision making on some of the many difficult questions we face.

As part of the work that I do on this I edit David Kidney’s website, and try always to give a well rounded and balanced background to all the issues that we raise in this.
