About Daniel Hannan
Daniel Hannan is Member of the European Parliament for the South East of England. First elected in 1999, he is one of the longest-serving UK MEPs. He is the Founder and President of the Initiative for Free Trade, a not-for-profit, research foundation based in London which aims to make the intellectual and moral case for free trade, particularly exploiting the potential benefits of Brexit.
After having campaigned for over twenty years for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, Daniel was a co-founder of the ‘Vote Leave’ campaign which was successful in the 2016 Referendum on the UK’s Membership of the EU.
Daniel is also a journalist and author, writing weekly columns for The Washington Examiner, The Telegraph and Conservative Home. He also publishes occasional articles for the Daily Mail, The Sun, The Guardian and The Spectator. He has published several books, including ‘Why Vote Leave’ and ‘What Next: How to Get the Best from Brexit’. He was awarded the Spectator’s Speech of the Year Award in 2009 for his speech in the European Parliament in which he criticised the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.
