I have tried to live as close to anarchist principles as I possible can in the midst of this capitalist exploitive system, since shortly after I started work in the Clydeside shipbuilding industry. So you could say I have been trying for 61 years and still trying, though it is difficult to keep your feet clean when standing in a pail of shit. I now see myself more as a propagandist rather than an activist. I have a love of Glasgow’s working class history and have written quite a wee bit about it HERE. I also like poetry, read some of mine HERE and have a love of various types of music, some of my favourite books include, The Struggle to be Human, Against the New Authoritatianism, The Coming Insurrection, Rules for Radicals. I am a keen “fair weather” cyclist and still manage around 3,000 miles a summer season. I also produce a small monthly free newspaper called The Anarchist Critic, have a wee look at it HERE.
