 i.

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

The total abandonment of war as foreign policy

 

 ii.

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

No other party took the pacifist stance.

 

 iii.

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

Unsure - I shall be pleased to retain my deposit.

 

 iv.

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

(i) A challenge to the major parties to reconsider their warlike stands and (ii) more pacifist contacts.

 

 v.

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

Increasing powers of the police.

 

 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.

 

 vii.

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

The 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?

I would never support more nuclear power.

 

 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 and immigration are both the results of poverty and oppression in the home countries of asylum seekers and immigrants - we must join urgently with other countries to abolish poverty and oppression everywhere.  Until then we will only be dealing with symptoms.

 

 x.

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

None, thank you for asking.
