Keith Rowe – Spokesman for UKIP In Birmingham
Keen followers of the media in Birmingham will by now be familiar with name of Keith Rowe, following a number of appearances on TV, radio and in the press. This site is designed to give members of the public and in particular those in Birmingham some more detailed knowledge on who Keith Rowe is and why he feels so motivated to stand up and be counted and why UKIP is now the only way forward in British politics.
I believe that politics in Britain has suffered increasingly in recent years by the main political jobs in both of the major traditional political parties being occupied by well educated but entirely inexperienced leaders. We have all suffered as a result. So many of our politicians have gone straight from education to helping a politician, to becoming one, but where is there experience of life?
I believe that in order to be truly effective our political leaders should be both passionate believers in the case they are arguing (not cynical “yes men”) and also be experienced in the wider world so that they have an idea as to the effects their actions will have on others.
I am 52 years old and have worked in small business for practically all of my working life. I was brought up working in my family manufacturing firm in Birmingham (based where the Cube now stands) and set up my current business (TBGC) in 1991.
I first stood as a candidate for UKIP in the 2012 local elections and have become increasingly involved and committed to the cause. Reading the pages on this website will show you the reasons why I believe we are being let down by our politicians and why I am so incensed by much of what is going on that I feel I must get fully involved and help to put matters right.
I have experience in business and charity work and I am a keen advocate of preserving and building on the good relations between the many different faith communities in Birmingham.
I am a keen choral singer leading the choir at Singers Hill and having sung previously with a number of local choirs.
I am married with two children and live in Harborne.
