I am an economic migrant from Birmingham. I moved to London in 1979 in search of work.  Since 1991 I have lived in Lewisham. As an economist I see the way issues of unemployment, housing and poverty are linked. This is especially so in areas like Evelyn. As an active campaigner I can see these problems won't be solved without political action at both the local and national levels. More recently, I have been fighting to save local health services and our NHS from private profiteers. I was the chief steward of the two big Save Lewisham hospital demonstrations.


I am an ex serviceman who firmly believes that the pen is far mightier than the sword. Over the years I have been interviewed by the BBC, the VOICE newspaper, the local Mercury and the Times educational supplement. In 1995 following an interview with a senior NASA astronaut, I was constructive in the setting up of the first public access to the internet in the borough of Lewisham. I am also a present member of TRIDENT  IAG (a civilian group monitoring the MET's response to gun related crime) Social Exclusion is also a crime, let's fight it together.
