A lovely man indeed but I wouldn't be voting for them.

Same goes for the new Green candidates on block, Oliver Moran and Lorna Bogue. Lovely people but they won't be getting my vote. No way hose.

If by proper degree you mean one obtained in the old universities then I'm all for it. Anything obtained from the techs is akin to an apprenticeship.
