2007 - 2021


John Mitchell

I served an apprenticeship in engineering after which I went hitch-hiking abroad for under a year and a half.
I came back and embarked upon further education graduating in social science from Glasgow Tech (Caledonian Uni). I went back into engineering working abroad (one of life’s regrets ie not going into journalism as I had planned to do). I came back home and worked in engineering in between driving a taxi!  Now retired. I was a member of the Labour Party many years ago and now a member of the SNP.
I have been active in Palestinian advocacy.  A member of Jewish Voice for Peace (US).  I discovered a few years ago that I’m part Jewish.
