Recent events in my life

I stood in the Brighton and Hove council elections in May 2011 as a Green party candidate for Withdene ward,where I live. I did not win but we managed for the first time ever in this ward to gain a Councillor for a party which was not Tory.I came fifth just behind the lowest Tory.I am in 2014 active in Green politics.I am in the campaign team for Davy Jones our Kemptown candidate for next years elections.I stood again again this time in East Brighton ward in the May 2015 elections.We gained the highest votes of any previous Green candidates in that ward(circa 1000)
Green politics give hope to the world and to me.

I have since then in 2014 published another book on Amazon Kindle .It is called A Proper Poly It is a novel but very loosely based on my experience of teaching in a University.I think it is amusing but also my anger about what has happened in Higher education since 79 is evident.It's plot concerns a strike in a New University.
It has received favorable reviews so far.The picture shows me on a picket line on the still ongoing dispute over pay in HE.Click here to download this file
