Phil is a computer programmer and internet entrepreneur who has lived in Meadows/Morningside ward since 2003.
Phil made the decision to become politically active during the expenses scandal in 2009, when he came to the conclusion that he was significantly more ethical and more competent than the people running the country. Others were thinking the same, and together they founded the Pirate Party.
Phil’s political interests include:
- preventing governments from taking freedom away from the internet
- the provision of more affordable housing
- better and more integrated public transport
Outside of politics, Phil is involved with the Beltane Fire Society.
