Keith is fighting to ensure the voices of the 48% aren't sidelined while the voices of the 100% have the final say on any Brexit deal.

There is only one planet; it cannot sustain ever more growth. Neither is a growth a useful measure of the health of a society; inequality is an essential function of a neoliberal economic paradigm. Tinkering around the edges will not solve the inexorable economic, social and environmental challenges we face.
Keith is a vocal campaigner against giant agribusiness and the cruelty of the intensive and factory farming processes it necessitates.
