Nick Bagnal Ex Ecology & Green Party UK

Nick who worked along side Jonathan Porritt, noted his leadership qualities as leader of the Ecology Party, before it changed to the Green Party. (Porritt is the son of New Zealander Sir Arthur Porritt).

Nick also managed a very switched on electoral organizing team to obtain 24.5% of the vote, almost 50,000 votes, in the English election for the European Parliament, heading off Labour and the Social Democrats, but as England did not have proportional representation, missed out! Noting that Britain is not really a democracy, but an oligarchy!

He was also involved in working towards keeping water boards in local communities hands when privatization was buying up water boards throughout Britain and that we need to be aware that water privatization could come to NZ very soon.

A Quaker who meditates and is a vegetarian, and sees the Quaker values of Equality, Peace, Simplicity, Truth and Integrity as being of vital importance in the near future, for humanity's survival.
