I am a socialist. Granted I've not stood on a stall on a high street recently and given out newspapers, so it might be hard for you to see. I did spend the last five years of my life creating services for victims of domestic violence, vulnerable abused kids, workers trafficked for labour, sex and servitude. I'll give you the fact that my nuclear war petition signature hit rate is woeful. But I did help to save, protect and empower thousands and thousands of lives, in this country and elsewhere.
