The contents of this blog are mainly political. I confess I have been a bit of a 'political traveller' over the years, but I have remained passionate on issues concerning the environment, animal welfare, peace, social justice and workers rights. Although I am now very much politically settled, I admit to having trodden many paths on which to tackle the issues that concern me, but always my principles have remained unchanged. I am also supportive of self determination, decentralisation and regionalism. This includes recognising the national status of Cornwall..
Away from politics I enjoy gardening and I'm lucky enough to work as a gardener in addition to writing my column for the Torbay Times. I enjoy the great outdoors, music, art, the theatre, social history, my motorcycles and watching a number of sports. I am also a Trustee and occasional Service Leader at Torquay Unitarian Church.
