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

 Democracy. MPs should represent their communities and not follow the party line dictated to by vested interests.

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

Because I believe 'enough is enough' of the doublespeak and spin from our country. I am ashamed of the decision to slaughter Iraqui people in our name simply for profit for the vested interests driving the USA.

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

 The constituency is a marginal one that could go four or five ways and I consider that I have as good a chance as any of the other candidates. It
will be close.

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

 By highlighting the issues of social and environmental justice and getting public support for them the other parties will have to 'green' up their
actions.

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

 Corporate power vested in some very wealthy hands that have been successful in taking control of our institutions. Too many of our citizens are prepared to allow them to do this by accepting a culture of fear and greed.

 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?

 NO. But I don't blame Blair or even Bush as they are both greedy spineless selfish puppets. Our nation has got itself in this position by allowing
wealthy capitalists to take control.

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

 Land should be not be owned by anyone and should be for community usage. Public utilities, transport, schools, hospitals and police should be
publicly owned.

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

Absolute rubbish. There has been a barrage of manoeuvring by the atomic energy industry to try and make a phoney environmental case. What would future generations say about the pile of waste we would be leaving them ?

 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?

Asylum seekers should be housed within communities that can offer appropriate support with access to legal, translational, and medical facilities. They should have the same rights as Scots to work, housing, social services, and freedom.

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

As we begin the new millennium, one of the most important issues for mankind is the production and consumption of food. We are now at a watershed where our food is rapidly being taken control of by multinational agribusiness and the biotech industry. I believe that our food and farming industry is the primary health service and in order to preserve the future health of our people we need to preserve the health of our land and our environment. Everything is connected in the fragile web of life on the planet and when one part is damaged the rest is affected. Therefore GM crops that are designed to create profits for their patent holders
