Biography

Inside most people you will find a liberal. Ask a stranger for directions and they will help - caring. In an overcrowded tube each person allows space for their neighbour - considerate. Parents want to give their children the best start - opportunity. But if any nation can claim an intimate relationship with liberal norms, it is the British.

It was these liberal values that allowed George to settle so easily in this country. And it is for these liberal values George is now standing in South Holland and Deepings.

George was born in communist Czechoslovakia. In opposition to the Russian invasion (1968) he organised an occupational strike. When personal protest was no longer possible he left in 1981, gaining British Citizenship in 1987.

George is a Structural Engineer, he has worked in public and private sector (Bristol City Council, Shell). He gained his MBA in Scotland and subsequently worked in international business, now running his consultancy firm. George describes his career as "a bit of a rollercoaster. I lived in different cultures, different countries; I have been variously a stateless refugee, a manager of a multinational corporation, a night-shift dishwasher, university lecturer…"

George's entrance into politics was through local campaigning. He stood for election as a District Councillor and was an MEP candidate last year. His political views reflect his experience: "I have faced everyday issues: job, family, finding a home, children's schooling. The needs of my disabled daughter have exposed me to the benefits of and problems with the NHS and social issues."

George says: "There is a liberal in all of us, whether or not we admit it. My challenge must be to convince people to express that and vote Liberal Democrats. Only then we can fight for EU, deliver equal opportunities, secure shared prosperity and protect the environment."
