Joined the Army at fifteen, became a marine engineer working on Landing Craft and Tugs. Served in Aden, Bahrain, Malta and Germany. Left the Army after eleven years and joined the Merchant Navy working on Suction Dredgers sailing on the North Sea and the English Channel.After eleven years of this I bought a house in the Highlands of Scotland and together with my wife we have run this for the past twenty-eight years. Enjoy talking to guests from around the world. We have pins in a world map where all our guests have come from. Great now when we get a new pin.
Environment. This this does not mean I want windmills all over the country. I want serious scientific research to see what really helps the environment not just knee jerk reactions by governments
Big shock riots in Britain not. We have had successive governments increase the benefits of the underclass instead of dealing with the problems directly. What are the problems? Whole areas of Fatherless kids where no one goes out to work. People in these area have put up with antisocial behaviour for years. Ignored by the police and allowed to run riot. Well now they have broken out. Nothing new Frank Field MP has been telling the last two governments for years.
