Alan Golding for Cardiff South & Penarth

Raised in Tonyrefail, Rhondda Cynon Taff, I have since lived in Brighton and Glasgow, moving to Cardiff in 1995.

Since my early twenties I’ve been interested in the workings of society and how we treat each other, animals and our planet… and in the process I’ve come to completely mistrust virtually all career politicians.

I believe a new way of doing politics is needed in Wales with a new set of values across the whole system.

I don’t believe the current political structure and its controllers have the interest of the people at its heart with regard to their mental and physical health, their quality of life and spiritual and economic well-being.
