Who is Adam Thompson?

Adam Thompson

I have worked for several years in the scientific and manufacturing communities and have worked with key players in the manufacturing industry, from Rolls Royce to the High-Value Manufacturing Catapult.

I hold a strong advocacy for increasing the number of expert voices in parliament and the general science-literacy of British politics.

I care very much about restoring our NHS, stopping climate change and ensuring that the jobs and lives of working people are protected after Britain’s exit from the European Union.

I believe in implementing well-reasoned, scientifically-sound policy and am known locally for my ability to provide reason and measured debate; I am often able to facilitate consensus between people with differing opinions.

Prior to my current career, I trained as a secondary science teacher and feel very strongly about improving the quality of the education system.
