About

Keith Melton was born and brought up in Lincolnshire, England, currently living in Nottinghamshire, having spent about six years in Brazil, after marrying `uma Braziliera` in 2011 (each of us was widowed in 2008). Keith is retired from the post of Director of the Institute for Sustainable Development in Business which was based at Nottingham Trent University. Before that he was a Senior Lecturer in International Business in Nottingham Trent Business School.

Having retired from Party Politics in 1998 to create the Institute, Keith is politically active again in the Liberal Democrats (and the party`s pressure group GLD – the Green Liberal Democrats) having stood as a parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Party and the Liberal Democrats in Lincoln, 1979, Broxtowe, 1983 and 1987 and Cleethorpes in 1997. he also stood as European Candidate in each of  Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire in the 1980s and 1990s. He was Chair of the Liberal Ecology Group before the parties merged in 1988 when he became Founding Chair of the  Green Liberal Democrats. He also chaired the Lib Dem Peace Group for a while.

Keith has written an historical novel about the Lincolnshire uprising of 1536 which was started in Louth by a shoemaker called Nicholas Melton. He has not yet proved a family link but has ‘adopted’ Nicholas as an ancestor. Nicholas became widely known around the country as Captain Cobbler. The novel is entitled “Captain Cobbler: the Lincolnshire Uprising 1536 and is available as an electronic book from Amazon for either 99 pence or 99 cents, depending whether you are in the UK or the USA

My posts could be about anything and everything!

Cheers

Keith
