This is my personal blog. I was Branch Secretary of Lambeth UNISON from 1992 to 2017 and a member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of UNISON, the public service union (www.unison.org.uk) from 2003 to 2017. I am Chair of Brighton Pavilion Constituency Labour Party and of the Sussex Labour Representation Committee (LRC). Neither the Labour Party nor UNISON is responsible for the contents of this personal blog. (Nor is my employer!)
