An Activist living in North Berwick, East Lothian
Introduction
I live in North Berwick, East Lothian overlooking Milsey Bay, the Bass Rock and Isle of May. I support FairTrade and fairer trade. I'd like an economy based on sustainability not economic growth as measured by GDP. I want all elections at any level to be conducted fairly, with voter choice not political party and prefer the STV PR system. I no longer work as was made redundant by Centrica plc and offered the company pension which I took. I'm involved in number of local organisations including North Berwick Highland Games and East Lothian Health Network. I am a Democrat.
