Back in December 2016 I wrote THIS Good Bye to the local Lib Dems. Well since then I did what I said I was going to to do, and joined The Liberal Party.
All of a sudden the June 2017 snap general election was called, and to cust a long story short, I am now a parlimentary candidate for The Liberal Party. This is also going to add asa spring board for the 2018 local elections where I am looking forward to standing and campaigning back in my old Timperley Ward.

24th March 2017 you could never ever make up what happened.
From the SAM but search Neil Taylor Twitter abuse the story went viral across the UK and global
Here is a radio interview I did for BBC Radio Manchester on the story.
In March 2017 I was very lucky to be one of the 100 people chosen by BBC Radio Manchester to take part in Over To You, a week where local people would be given a chance to do tasks such as reporting, presenting, editing and more.
We had a number of training sessions, and the whole experience was really amazing. Well done to the BBC for doing this, and thank you for being one of those that took part.
Here is a "reporting" bit done with Art with a Heart , a charity in Altrincham .
Our 2001 Ford Galaxy Zetec TD 1896cc (1.9) Diesel is up for sale.
This will be up on Ebay with a BIN £2.5k
This has just 88.5k miles on the clock and the MOT is die in May 2017
Only had four keepers since new and is very, very low millage and we have owned it since 2012.
This has been very much a family car/people carrier and has/is in used on a daily basis, and it starts first time every time, and runs like a dream.
It’s a seven seater and the rear seats can all be removed.
It has a after-market CD/MP3 player complete with remote control.
Since 2004 I have been involved with the Liberal Democrats on a local, and a national level, and over this time have met and become friends with a lot of people.
I stood for a first time in what was a fairly safe Conservative seat in 2006, this was in the Timperley Ward (Trafford) and I managed to win this seat.
I stood again in 2010 and held the seat.
in 2014 I stood once again, and this was on the same time as the European elections, the Lib Dems had been in coalition since 2010 and nationally were at an all-time low.
I lost the seat by just 56 votes.
During my time with Trafford Lib Dems, I have been a very active member, have been vice chair to the local party, and also served as chair for three years.
I have also been a campaign manager, and at the 2010 General Elections got the Lib Dems into second place for Altrincham and Sale West.
During my three years as local party chair, we also had a full slate of candidates in the local elections, this was a very challenging task!
