About me

Gender MALE
Industry Government
Occupation Former Local Councillor
Location Chatham, Kent, United Kingdom
Introduction I am not your typical politician, and indeed wasn't even a member of the Conservative Party until a few months before standing for election. Along with two other Councillors, I represented the largest and most complex urban ward in Medway, called Rochester South & Horsted until I resigned from the Council on 25th March 2008. They will soon be joined by a replacement for me. I am pictured here at Rochester Airport, which I helped to save from closure by the then Lib/Lab pact on Medway Council. My sense of humour revolves largely around word-play and imitation. I'm no Rory Bremner but I'll always give it a shot! One of my current specials is Michael Martin, the House of Commons Speaker a.k.a. Gorbals Mick. I believe this might be a world first(!)
