I believe in socialism.
Equality of opportunity, protection of the vulnerable, a nationalised welfare state and a more equal distribution of wealth.
I am a member of and former Official of the Fire Brigades Union and support the principles of the Trade Union and Labour movement to secure better pay and conditions for working people.
I believe that we must fight for a fairer future for the many and not the few. I believe I am "not the same" as many other politicians only interested in their own career.
