NOTE: This page is for reference only from the time when David worked as an MEP
Determined that British voters must have a Referendum on the EU, David’s Eurosceptic record cannot be matched by anyone else. As now, he will fight for your and Britain’s interests in Brussels as he seeks to reduce the burden of that remote and bloated bureaucracy.
What I believe in :: What have I done for you :: What will I do for you?
“It is a pleasure to have David come back to the Conservative fold, he has given us a great deal of help in fighting UKIP.”
David Finch, Leader of Essex County Council
What I believe in:
- Britain must withdraw from the EU political union & have a trade-only relationship. Only the Conservative Party can achieve this – not UKIP
- Being tough on immigration – it’s about space not race
- Strong defence and larger armed forces
- Scrapping the perverse Human Rights Act so we can deport evil terrorists & criminals
- Benefits for the needy not the workshy
- Prioritising the East of England for support
- Promoting East Anglia’s smaller businesses as well as larger companies
- Lowering taxes and cutting energy bills to promote growth
- Decent pensions & elderly care
- Upholding traditional Conservative policies such as grammar schools, not Metropolitan policies such as gay marriage.
“I am very pleased that we can welcome David Campbell Bannerman back to the Conservative Party. The Conservative Party is bringing in people who want to work in the national interest to sort out Britain’s problems. I am sure David Campbell Bannerman will be a valuable member of our team in the European Parliament.”
Rt Hon William Hague MP, Foreign Secretary

Charles Walker MP, Member of Parliament for Broxbourne
