John says: “I walk along the Pilgrim’s way on the North Downs. We’re so fortunate to live in this green and pleasant County. It’s by walking I see a what’s going on. I’m an engineer. Working in the most international of businesses; aviation. So, I’ve travelled, places where aircraft are certified, designed or manufactured. Over a decade, I lived in Cologne, Germany. My student life in Coventry was at a time depression. That said, I couldn’t have been in a better city given the impact of Two-Tone. A Liberal, it wasn’t until I met a newly elected young MP called Paddy Ashdown that I started being politically active. An unusual fact? When I was 16, I kept Saddleback pigs so my career could have gone in a different direction, had I stuck to it. But motorcycles and machinery took over my interests. I’m experienced as a local councillor and parliamentary candidate. This time we can get the job done and change the direction of the Country”.
