Bio:

I'm a probation Officer in the UK this means I try to help people who have committed a crime for whatever reason. I say this whilst acknowledging that the probation service is now " part of the problem". I'm active in my union trying to undo the last 30 years of neoliberal madness in the public sector. Prior to this I taught History and Sociology in a Birmingham F.E. college. Marx has influenced my thinking for the last 30 years and I think that with the current crisis of Capitalism and the relentless attack on the conditions of ordinary people it's time to fight back. I'm ready to rumble.

Social Network Links: Facebook and twitter
Other Political Affiliations: Union member and in the 1980s I canvassed for the local Labour MP. However, I have never been a member of a political party , my thinking has been Left and light Green.
