I am 39 years old, and am married with 4 children. My family moved to Wales in the early eighties, after falling in love with the country, and I could think of no where better to raise my children, who are benefiting from a bi-lingual education.
After finishing my GCSE’s at Ysgol David Hughes, I attended Coleg Pencraig before doing 2 years voluntary work in London.
On returning home, I attended Coleg Menai before starting at the family business – employing 180 people providing Domiciliary and Home Care for the Elderly for 2 local authorities.
After selling that business, I moved back to Wales with my family.
From an early age, I have been interested in politics, and the history of our Great Nation. I was a member of the Conservative Party, but was dismayed at their attitude to the EU, the one issue that rules them all. I resigned my membership and joined UKIP in February of 2005 deciding then and there, that this was a fight worth fighting. I was not being asked to stand in the trenches, or storm the beaches of Normandy for my country. This was to be a long and mainly thankless battle to inform the public, and raise UKIP’s profile as a professional mainstream party.
I am not a career politician. I have worked in the real world, employed many people and created real wealth for the country. I have experienced the burden of endless red tape and government meddling, and believe that Britain is better United as the UK, then as separated Regions of a United States of Europe.
