I have been involved In green issues since the late 1970s when I was stationed in Germany and watched the rise of the German Greens with fascination. I nearly joined the Ecology Party back in 1981 but went into Labour instead. My politics have always been on the Green Left and I see social justice as an essential part of the Green project.
Why I am standing
I have taken early retirement due to the fact that I have MS and, in addition to social justice and Ecological matters, I also see disability issues as of great importance. I have a lot of time on my hands and I would like to make a contribution to Green initiatives in Oxford.
