Peter Bradley was the Labour MP for The Wrekin between 1997 and 2005 and has been involved in British politics for over 40 years. As a Councillor in Westminster in the 1980/90s, he was a leader of the campaign which exposed the 'Homes for Votes' scandal and, as an MP, gained a reputation as a resolute and resourceful campaigner on a wide range of issues, from affordable housing to constitutional reform.
More recently, he was the founding director of Speakers’ Corner Trust, a charity which promotes freedom of expression, open debate and active citizenship in the UK and developing democracies.
He has written for a wide range of publications, including the Times, the Guardian, the Independent, the New Statesman and the New European.
Peter lives with his wife Annie in Shropshire. They have two children, twins. He is a cricket enthusiast, a (fretful) Aston Villa supporter and enjoys walking and cycling (though not uphill).
Peter’s first book, The Last Train, was published this year by Harper North.
