Pride of Lionesses

Sadly, I think there can be only one reason why men decry women's football, and it's not really the quality or entertainment on show. It's simply a belief that football is not for women. It's a misogynistic attitude that belongs in the past and should be consigned to the dustbin of history alongside the FA's ban.

Desert Island Discs

I’m attempting to get back to posting content regularly. However, as you may have noticed, politics and current affairs is a bit of a mess at the moment. With that in mind, I’ve decided instead to put together my Desert Island Discs as the BBC continue to snub me. People love to reveal a bit of themselves through their musical...

Not Another One

I think a lot of people - even those of us involved in politics - were with Brenda from Bristol on 18th April when Theresa May announced a snap General Election. I was campaigning around West Garioch that day and for the remainder of that campaign, I found little enthusiasm for the prospect of this election.

Thank You

As you’ll know, I wasn’t successful in my attempt to be elected to represent the people and communities of West Garioch. I’m immensely proud of my campaign, which focused on the local issues that those elected today will now be taking decisions on.

That’s it. The polls are closed and the votes are in.

Whatever happens tomorrow, I know that I have done everything I possibly could with the time and resources available to me. That is thanks to the many people who have helped and supported me over recent months; you know who you are and you will receive fuller thanks in the coming days.

The polls open at 7.00 in the morning folks. I have spoken to very few people during this campaign who have told me they’re not intending to vote but history tells us that something like 65% of people won’t.

In this election, possibly more than any other, your vote will count, will make a difference and will go towards deciding who will be your representative to make decisions about schools, roads, waste and all the other services we all rely on.

Please vote, and if you’re in West Garioch and would like a councillor who will work hard for you and always prioritise key services, please give me your number 1 preference.
