John Barrett Biography

John Barrett is one of the most popular and richest Politician who was born on February 11, 1954 in Hobart, Hobart, United Kingdom. John Andrew Barrett (born 11 February 1954) is a Scottish Liberal Democrat politician and the former Member of Parliament (MP) for Edinburgh West.

On 25 July 2009, Barrett announced that he would be standing down from Parliament at the 2010 general election. In only two seats in the UK, Edinburgh West and Cambridge, were retiring Liberal Democrats able to successfully see their own party hold on to their seats. He was succeeded as MP for Edinburgh West by fellow Liberal Democrat Mike Crockart.

In August 2014, he announced his intention to support Scottish independence in the Scottish Independence Referendum.

In an article in January 2014, Barrett condemned the policies of the Liberal Democrats in coalition with the Tories at Westminster, saying “No wonder the public in Scotland drifted away in large numbers from the party at both the last set of Holyrood and council elections.”

Following the boundary changes in 2005, Edinburgh West now included the areas of Stenhouse and Murrayfield. He was re-elected in the 2005 United Kingdom general election, with a majority of 13,600 over the nearest (Conservative) candidate, making Edinburgh West the second safest Lib-Dem seat in the UK, a seat which the Lib Dems had won for the first time only eight years before.
