Joining the Liberal Democrats in 2003 at the height of the Iraq war protests amid the feeling that something wasn’t right and legal about what as happening, these days having been proved right!
Dave is wanting to make things more equal within the UK, too often where you are born dictates what you might be able to achieve and that needs to be addressed urgently. Aspiration should never be influenced by where you live, all children deserve an equal chance, a level playing field.
The environment is another huge concern, with yearly corrections to forecasts on melting ice, temperatures and danger to wildlife across the globe its time we took a universal approach to dealing with how we treat the Earth, our home.
Lastly Brexit, Dave is pro-European but recognises that the EU wasn’t perfect but is still the best deal on the table. He would rather be in the EU fighting to change it for the better than be on the outside looking in without any influence.
