Daniel Hannan is a British writer, journalist and politician. He has been a Conservative Member of the European Parliament for South East England since 1999.
He writes regular columns for The Sunday Telegraph, the International Business Times, Conservative Home and the Washington Examiner as well as occasional columns in the Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Sun, The Spectator and the Wall Street Journal.
He is also the editor-in-chief of The Conservative, a quarterly journal of centre-right political thought.
The irrepressible, Shakespeare-quoting MEP campaigned up and down the length of the country, and knitted together the various factions within Vote Leave.
Daniel gave Prime Minister Cameron a hard time when he tweeted “A prime minister who must plead with foreigners for the right to tweak his own benefits rules cannot be said to lead an independent country”.
A prolific writer and speaker, Hannan was relentless in making the case for the UK to leave the EU. His public profile is high for an MEP; he has a column in the Telegraph and has made regular TV appearances.
