Daniel Hannan MEP

Daniel's Experience

Daniel Hannan has been Conservative MEP for the South East of England since 1999. Local Conservatives voted him to the top of the regional list for the 2004 and 2009 European elections.

He is Secretary-General of the Alliance of European Conservatives and Reformists - the only bloc in Brussels that campaigns against closer integration.

In March 2009, Daniel’s speech in the European Parliament attacking Gordon Brown attracted one-and-a-half million views within 72 hours, and went on to become the most watched political clip in British history.

This year, Daniel has been awarded the prize for International Legislator of the Year by the American Legislative Exchange Council, and Speech of the Year by the Spectator magazine.

Daniel is the author of seven books about the EU and, more recently, of The Plan: Twelve Months to Renew Britain, which has become the best selling political tract in Britain, and which sets out a comprehensive platform for the decentralisation of power. He writes for The Daily Telegraph, The Mail on Sunday and The Spectator, and blogs every day at www.hannan.co.uk. His blog attracts 200,000 hits a week from 80,000 unique users.  In 2009, his blog won the Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism.

Daniel speaks French and Spanish and loves Europe, but believes that the EU is making us poorer, less democratic and less free. He wants to take powers back from Brussels, and then to pass them down to local councils or, better yet, individual citizens.
