New columnist: marlborough.news welcomes Molly Scott Cato - Green Party MEP

Molly Scott Cato, marlborough.news new columnistMolly Scott Cato, marlborough.news new columnistWe are delighted to welcome Molly Scott Cato MEP as a new columnist for marlborough.news  Some readers may have heard her speak at a pre-Euro Election forum held in St Peter's Church or at a recent meeting about Brexit in Devizes.

She was elected to the European Parliament in May 2014 as one of the six MEPs for the South West constituency - which includes Gibraltar.  

The region returned six MEPs: two Conservative, two UKIP, one Labour and one Green.  (Both the UKIP MEPs resigned from their party late last year and now sit as Independents.)

She is the first Green Party MEP to represent the region.  She joined the Green Party in 1988 and speaks for the Green Party on financial matters.

She stood several times as a Green Party candidate in Parliamentary elections.  As leader of the Greens on Stroud Council she worked with Labour and LIbDem councillors to take control of the council.  For three years she was a director of Transition Stroud.  

Brought up in Bath, Molly Scott Cato became an academic - teaching and researching at universities in Wales and more recently at Roehampton University where she was Professor of Strategy and Sustainability.  

Her academic work has covered the green economy, the economics of co-operatives and social enterprises, and critical analysis of the current monetary system and alternatives to it.  She has published several books including Environment and  Economy (2011).

In October last year she signed the call for action supporting the climate change activists of the Extinction Rebellion movement.

She will not be writing exclusively about Brexit - and we very much hope she will continue after 29 March 2019 (or whenever the leave date will be) on green and climate change matters.
