This is my personal blog. I am a UNISON Branch Secretary and also a member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of UNISON, the public service union (www.unison.org.uk). UNISON is not responsible for the contents of this blog. (Nor is my employer!) I am a socialist and a Labour Party member. I am a member of the Labour Representation Committee (www.l-r-c.org.uk). I blog to report on what I get up to as a labour movement activist and to share my views.
