i.
what do you think is the most important issue in this election?

Climate change

ii.
why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for this party (as an independent)?

To broaden people's democratic opportunities

iii.
what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?

Low

iv.
aside from the vote what are you hoping to get out of this campaign?

Spread the message; more party members

v.
in your view what is the greatest threat to our civil liberties at the moment?

Social and economic inequality

vi.
Blair has taken us to war three times since coming to power (not including the occasional ad hoc bombing raid) in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Can war ever be justified?

Yes

vii.
There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had your way what would be brought into public hands?

Transport - especially railways

viii.
Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear power as a way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of this?

Crazy: just yet another way of passing our problems off onto the weakest and most vulnerable - in this case, future generations

ix.
Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election. What action on this issue would you like to see the next government push through?

We are the 4th wealthiest country in the world.  It's not a question of whether we can afford to welcome foreigners into the country,  it's a question of whether we want to.  The next govt should campaign for 'hospitality' as a central civic virtue.

x.
What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear?

Do you think our electoral system should by some form of PR?
