I am a married man living for the past twenty years in Croesyceiliog Cwmbran. I was born and brought up in the Sirhowy Valley where I was educated at Pontllanfraith Grammar School obtaining ‘A’ levels in Economics and Geography. I then did an HND course in Business Studies at Newport College of Technology.

Apart from a few years immediately after college I have been a self-employed businessman, being the Director of several concerns, based mainly in the Gwent Area.

I was Chairman of the UK Independence Party in Wales between 2000 - 2005 having joined the Party in 1998.

I stood in 3 General elections, two Assembly elections and was the First List Candidate in the 2004 European Elections, where we secured over 98,000 votes and beat the Lib Dems into fourth place.

I only became involved in politics because politicians of all parties were refusing to tell the truth about the European Union.

I believe passionately in retaining the Sovereignty of the United Kingdom, and returning to what was voted for in 1973, a trading relationship with our friends in Europe, not an undemocratic European Super State.

I believe the huge volumes of immigration into this country must stop immediately, and those people who are here illegally should be repatriated.
