Having supported the campaign for the UK to leave the European Union, I believe the British people made the right call on 23rd June. Indeed none of us wish to see division in our society, nor do we want prosperity to be undermined by politicking on either sides of the negotiating table.
In 2016, I was appointed by the Prime Minister to the role of UK Trade Envoy to Morocco and Tunisia. As Deputy Chairman, and former Chair, of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Morocco, I have been a long-standing supporter of North Africa.
Having served in the armed forces myself, I understand the need for a strong defence. Today's geopolitical climate is one of instability and we cannot take any chances when it comes to keeping the British people safe.
