About Me


I am a long-time local resident - I work for a not for profit community agency in North London.

I joined the site as I am committed to improving my community through volunteering, campaigning and helping out where I can.

I am a former Labour Party activist and lapsed Labour party member now a non-aligned socialist and active member of my Trade Union happily pricking the bubble of pomposity whenever I come across it.
