Alex has lived in London for 16 years and is a barrister by profession, formerly practising as a solicitor in private practice and in industry. Born in Belgium to British parents, he calls himself both British and European and lives in Ickenham with his Lebanese American wife and two children.
Alex was, for many years, a school governor and active in residents’ associations. He stood in the council elections in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018 as well as the general elections of 2010, 2015 and 2017. Outside of politics, he spends as much time as he can with his young family, keeping healthy by training in kickboxing and coaching rugby.
Neither the Tories and Corbyn's Labour care that Hard Brexit will damage local services and destroy the NHS. Alex is driven by a belief that individuals should have equal opportunity to achieve their potential and that more must be done for London’s youth. He has been a vocal critic of the Heathrow expansion and is concerned about the impact on the local community of the construction of HS2.
Alex feels that Brexit threatens the economic prospects of all of us, but particularly our children and grandchildren. In standing up for the Liberal Democrat values of freedom, fairness and equality he is championing the local community where these principles are so evident.
Alex is proud to be the Parliamentary spokesperson for Hayes & Harlington and to fight to keep our country united, community-spirited and open for business.
