I was born in 1943 before the NHS was started. When children were seen but not heard. My mother was born in 1914, my father in 1909, I think. I am a political and economic systems thinker but I can no longer be arsed to be an activist. I have over the years been a member of the Labour party in the 60's; the Ecology party in the 70's and the Liberal party in the 80's and the LibDems in the 2000's, which I have resigned from since the Referendum result and Vince Cable started his campaign to reverse the result.
