Personal Overview - Politician focused on the importance of gaining public involvement into the political process. He is the founder of 'Mind the Gap', a campaign to promote civic action, and authored a political publication called 'Change Starts Small' arguing for political reform to engender greater grass roots involvement in politics. His Localis organisation is a local government research and policy making organisation. His constituency has always been on the Labour side of the political divide since its inception in 1997, but in actuality it is far more competitive than that suggests. So long as the Conservatives remain competitive on the national stage Morris has a chance at retaining his constituency base.
