I'm a war baby, born 1944. Married to Hilary with 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
I suffer from a number of minor disabilities, including dyslexia and colour-blindness, mainly related (I believe) to the interpretation sector of the brain.
I was a Conservative councillor in the London Borough of Ealing for 36 years, including being Mayor for 2004/5, and was made a freeman of the Borough after standing down.
I am a qualified management accountant and was president (our posh name for chairman!) of the West London branch of the Chartered Institute of Management Accounts back in the 1990's!
I am currently chairman (having been the treasurer for many years) of the West London Equality Centre. My late Director (one of the first casualties of Covid19) used to utilise all my qualifications saying that it impressed the funders thus I'm FCMA, CGMA, MBA, MA, BA, Dip.Ed. but if using them I normally put just MBA, FCMA.
