Location: Brighouse, West Yorks, United Kingdom

Devon born, Yorkshire based, analyst. Most of my writing now appears on my personal journal but on occasions I've been known to write at Liberal Conspiracy and Lib Dem Voice.

I'm engaged to Jennie and do some work with her for local parties and businesses. I'm Chair of Brighouse Lib Dems, and a candidate in the Calderdale MBC local elections.
