An Interview with Mike Storey

We went along to interview Mike Storey this morning. For those of you who don't know Mike he was Liberal Democrat leader of Liverpool City Council 1998-2005. He is also a former graduate of S. Katherines College, one of Liverpool Hope's former colleges.

It was interesting to hear how Mike became involved in politics, beginning with becoming Student Union Secretary when he was here back in and around the late 1960's early 70's. We've recorded the interview and with Mikes permission we will maybe include extracts in the next Newsletter and/or some online audio for you to listen to.

One shocking fact that came out of the discussion was that Mike was once Headmaster of a school that I myself attended as a child, St Gabriels in Huyton Quarry! Now that was a shock!

You can read a bit more about Mikes life and work on wikipedia (just click the link attached to the title above)
