Our ChairmanCoordinator - Ken Petersen

"I had been involved in politics whilst a Midlander, but had become more and more disillusioned with the petty point scoring nature at all levels of, what we are encouraged to call the “main parties”. In particular, I recognised that Climate Change would have serious consequences for all mankind but that, even those politicians who paid lip service to these dangers, would readily jettison their concerns for short term political gain."
