Iain Brodie Brown has the story on his Birkdale Focus Bog Site – see link above.

This is a subject close to my heart as I spent many years as a trade union officer and activist for IRSF, PTC & PCS trying to resist regional pay which would make public sector workers outside of London and the South East second class employees.

John has served as the Town’s MP for quite a number of years and it is interesting to hear that many people who may hold differing political beliefs hold him in great regard.

In my view this is what an MP is meant to be i.e. someone respected by many across the political spectrum, but sadly there are not many of them about these days. Good luck John.
