Early life[edit] Upbringing[edit] Hannan was born on 1 September 1971 in Lima, Peru.[9] His mother was Scottish[10] and had been working in the British Embassy to Lima. His father was born in Peru to British parents, had been educated in the UK and had served in Italy during the Second World War
Second World War
with the North Irish Horse of the British Army.[11] Hannan grew up on his parents’ farm outside Lima, going to school and university in Britain.[9] Hannan was educated at Winchester House School, Marlborough College
Marlborough College
and Oriel College, Oxford, where he studied Modern History.[9] He speaks English, French and Spanish.[12] He was active in university politics, being elected President of the Oxford University Conservative Association
Oxford University Conservative Association
in 1992 - when Nicky Morgan, (then known as Nicky Griffith) was his opponent. The two have remained friends.[13] As an undergraduate, he established the Oxford Campaign for an Independent Britain,[14] a group which campaigned against closer EU integration - a theme that was to shape his later career. On 12 September 1992, he organised a protest at the EU finance ministers’ summit in Bath against membership of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. Three days later, the pound left the system as a result of George Soros' actions.[15] Early political career[edit] After graduating in 1993, Hannan became the first director of the European Research Group, an organisation for Eurosceptic Conservative MPs chaired by Michael Spicer. From 1994 to 1995, he served as Chairman of the National Association of Conservative Graduates.[16] In 1996 he became a leader-writer at the Daily Telegraph under Charles Moore. He wrote leaders for the paper until 2004, and has written blogs and columns for it ever since. Hannan has since contributed to The Spectator
The Spectator
and many other newspapers and magazines around the world. In 1997, he became an adviser and speechwriter to Michael Howard, then Shadow Foreign Secretary.[17] In 2001, during the general election campaign, while already serving as an MEP, he wrote speeches for William Hague,[9] the Conservative leader. In 1999 he stood down from his posts at the European Research Group and Conservative Graduates.[16] Member of the European Parliament[edit] Hannan was elected to the European Parliament
European Parliament
in 1999.[18] His first act on being elected was to write an article in the Daily Telegraph about the expenses and allowances available to MEPs, which caused great controversy.[citation needed] In 2000, he launched a public appeal to support the underfunded "No" campaign in Denmark's referendum on joining the euro. The Guardian newspaper accused him of running the appeal from his parliamentary office, but withdrew the accusation when it was shown that he had, in fact, operated out of his own flat.[19] Denmark defied expectations by voting against the euro.[citation needed] He was re-elected at the top of his party's list for the South East England constituency in 2004. Hannan was re-elected in 2009 and 2014, each time at the head of the Conservative list[20] – a ranking determined by party members in a postal ballot. Campaign against the Lisbon Treaty[edit] One of Hannan’s longest-running campaigns as an MEP was for a referendum – first on the European Constitution and then, when that text was revised and renamed, on the Lisbon Treaty. He would end every speech, whatever its subject, with a call, in Latin, for the Lisbon treaty to be put to the vote: "Pactio Olisipiensis censenda est". The words were a deliberate echo of Cato the Elder, the Roman Senator who ended every speech with a call for Carthage
to be destroyed: "Carthago delenda est".[21][22] When no referendum was forthcoming, Hannan began to use parliamentary procedure to draw attention to his campaign. Under the rules as they then stood, all MEPs were allowed to speak for up to 60 seconds following the vote on each matter on which they had voted, a procedure known as "Explanations of Vote".[23] In 2008, he organised a multi-national rota of Eurosceptic MEPs to speak on every permissible vote, always ending their speeches by calling for a referendum on Lisbon.[23] The campaign served slightly to delay proceedings, and enraged the Parliamentary authorities. After only a few days, the President of the European Parliament, Hans-Gert Pöttering, declared that he should have a discretionary right to disallow any such interventions when he was "convinced that these are manifestly intended to cause, and will result in, a prolonged and serious obstruction of the procedures of the House or the rights of other Members" (Rule 20, para 1).[citation needed] He continued speaking after his allocated time had ended by quoting Edmund Burke, but was interrupted mid-quote and had his microphone cut off by Luigi Cocilovo, one of the 14 Vice-Presidents.[24] Hannan reacted angrily to what he saw as a flagrant violation of the Parliament’s own rules. In a point of order, he declared:[25][26]

An absolute majority is not the same as the rule of law. I accept that there is a minority in this house in favour of a referendum. That there is a minority in this house against the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty. But this house must nonetheless follow its own rulebooks. And by popular acclamation to discard the rules under which we operate is indeed an act of arbitrary and despotic rule. It is only my regard for you Mr. Chairman and my personal affection for you that prevents me from likening it to the Ermächtigungsgesetz of 1933 which was also voted through by a parliamentary majority." — Daniel Hannan

The EPP leader, Joseph Daul, responded by initiating proceedings to expel Hannan from the group. At the relevant meeting, Hannan told members that the ideological differences between him and the majority of EPP members on the question of European integration made his expulsion their only logical choice. He duly left the group on 20 February 2008, and sat as a non-attached (non-inscrit) member until the rest of the British Conservatives followed to form the European Conservatives and Reformists following the 2009 election.[27] Hannan, who had campaigned against EPP membership since before his election, enthusiastically rejoined his colleagues in the new ECR Group in 2009, and became the first Secretary-General of its attached Euro-party, AECR, subsequently ACRE.[20] "The Devalued Prime Minister"[edit]

Hannan came to prominence after making a speech in the European Parliament criticising Gordon Brown.[28] On 24 March 2009, after Gordon Brown
Gordon Brown
had given a short speech to the European Parliament
European Parliament
in Strasbourg
in advance of the G20 London
summit, Hannan followed up by delivering a 3-minute speech strongly criticising the response by Gordon Brown
Gordon Brown
to the global financial crisis.[29] He finished the speech with the phrase, "the devalued Prime Minister of a devalued government".[30] A video clip of the speech went viral on YouTube
that evening,[31][32] attracting more than 630,000 views in 24 hours.[29][33] It became the 'most viewed today' YouTube
video worldwide two consecutive days.[33] As of November 2016, there had been over three million views of the clip.[30] Political positions[edit] Localism[edit] Hannan is an advocate of localism.[9] He believes that local government independence is impossible without giving fiscal autonomy.[34] To that end, he supports replacing Value Added Tax with a local sales tax, set by local councils.[9] He cofounded a direct democracy group ("Direct Democracy") and was co-author, along with 27 Conservative MPs elected in 2005, of Direct Democracy: An Agenda for a New Model Party, which proposes the wholesale devolution of power and the direct election of decision-makers.[35] These ideas were developed further in a series of six pamphlets, The Localist Papers, serialised in The Daily Telegraph in 2007.[36] Electoral reform[edit] Hannan argues in his writings and in the media (for example, during an appearance on Question Time on BBC
television on 28 May 2009) for ballot initiatives (whereby electors can directly enact legislation as happens in Switzerland), a power of recall (whereby a sitting Member of Parliament can be forced to submit to re-election if enough of the local electorate support this), fixed term parliaments, local and national referendums, open primaries and the abolition of party lists. He is also an advocate of Single Transferable Vote
Single Transferable Vote
as a replacement for the UK's First Past The Post system of voting.[citation needed] Economic policy[edit] Hannan wrote in March 2011, criticizing anti-austerity protesters, stating they "have decided to indulge their penchant for empty, futile, self-righteous indignation". He remarked, "After "No Cuts!" the marchers' favourite slogan was "Fairness!" All right, then... How about being fair to our children, whom we have freighted with a debt unprecedented in peacetime?"[37] Hannan writes regularly about the United Kingdom's future international trade relationship once it leaves the EU.[38] Operating though his platform at the European Parliament
European Parliament
and through the IFT, Hannan advocates a globally free-trading policy for the UK,[39] and has even suggested joining the trans-pacific partnership as the global economic weight shifts from west to east.[40] Hannan is on the International Board[41] of Students for Liberty, a non-profit group operating globally to encourage classical liberalism and liberal economics.[citation needed] Foreign policy[edit] Hannan has a 'deep admiration' of the United States,[42] and describes himself as an Atlanticist
with inherently positive views of the United States as well as other nations of the Anglosphere. Hannan is extremely supportive of free trade, believing that the European Union blocks trade with countries such as China, India
and Ethiopia.[39]

at the Conservative Political Action Conference, 2012.

He opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq
2003 invasion of Iraq
undertaken during the premiership of Tony Blair.[43] He opposed British intervention in Libya.[42] Hannan would like Britain to forge a "distinctive foreign policy, allied to Europe, but giving due weight to the US, India
and other common-law, Anglophone democracies".[44] He endorsed then-Democratic candidate Barack Obama
Barack Obama
for President on 18 October 2008 against John McCain. He stated that a McCain presidency would mean an "imperial overstretch", particularly arguing that the U.S. should have been preparing to leave Iraq immediately.[45] Hannan regretted his endorsement, which he called in his blog his "single most unpopular post" in his blogging career, and backed Mitt Romney in 2012. He argued, "Any American reader who wants to know where Obamification will lead should spend a week with me in the European Parliament. I'm working in your future and, believe me, you won't like it."[46] In the US Presidential elections of 2016, he argued that both main parties had put forward unfit candidates, and urged Americans to vote for the Libertarian, Gary Johnson.[47] Social policy[edit] Hannan is opposed to the concept of "victimless crimes", and he favours drug decriminalisation: "I'd start with cannabis, and if that worked I wouldn't in principle be against decriminalising heroin."[9] Health care[edit] In April 2009, he criticised claims that the National Health Service was the greatest British invention, saying that it is clearly eclipsed by the inventions of parliamentary democracy, penicillin, and common law, the discovery of DNA, or the abolition of slavery.[48] Hannan claimed the NHS has left Britain with low survival rates for cancers and strokes, a high risk of becoming more ill in hospital, and with constant waiting lists. He remarked on American television at a time when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act
was being debated that he "wouldn't wish it [the NHS] on anyone". David Cameron, who had said that his priorities were "three letters: NHS", distanced himself from Hannan's remarks as "some rather eccentric points of view".[49][50] Writing in The Telegraph, Hannan said of the media storm provoked by his comments:

On a visit to the US, I was asked by an interviewer whether I would recommend a British-style health-care model, paid for out of general taxation. I replied that all three parties were devoted to the NHS, and that it had public support (although I added that this was at least partly the result of the inaccurate belief that free health care for the poor is a unique attribute of the British system). But I didn't want to dissemble: I have for years argued that Britain would be better off with a Singapore-style system of personal health-care accounts. So I cautioned against nationalisation, citing international league tables on survival rates and waiting times.[51][52]

At the same time, he made the wider point that: "we seem to have lost the notion that a backbencher speaks for himself. I like David Cameron, and want him to be Prime Minister, not least so that Britain stops racking up debt. But the idea that I therefore agree with him on every issue is, when you think about it, silly."[51] In 2015, writing for The Washington Examiner, Hannan claimed the popular support for the NHS in the UK was a consequence of the wider public being "passively conscripted" by a "knot of hardline leftists" like those who had harassed his mother after he criticised the NHS. He told readers "This is your last chance to strangle Obamacare at birth; flunk it, and you won't get another."[53] Enoch Powell[edit] It was reported in August 2009 that Hannan had praised the Conservative politician Enoch Powell
Enoch Powell
as "somebody who understood the importance of national democracy, who understood why you need to live in an independent country and what that meant, as well as being a free marketeer and a small-government Conservative."[54][55] However, he is also on record as saying, "For what it's worth, I think Enoch Powell
Enoch Powell
was wrong on immigration. The civil unrest that he forecast, and that many feared in 1968, didn't materialise. Britain assimilated a large population with an ease that few countries have matched. Being an immigrant myself, I have particular cause to be grateful for Britain's understated cosmopolitanism."[56] Writing on The Telegraph website, Mr Hannan said: "I'm surprised that no one has picked up on the thing that I most admire about Enoch Powell, namely his tendency to ignore conventional wisdom and think things through from first principles. Like Rowan Williams, he always did his hearers the courtesy of addressing them as intelligent adults. Both men regularly got into trouble in consequence, either because they were genuinely misunderstood or because their detractors affected to misunderstand them. Neither responded by dumbing down. That, in politics, takes a special kind of integrity."[57] UKIP[edit] In spring 2012, Hannan suggested in a Daily Telegraph article that an accommodation be made between the Conservative Party and the UK Independence Party (UKIP),[58] and would be preferable to one with the Liberal Democrats.[59][60][61] However, following the 2016 referendum, he argued that UKIP members should "award themselves a medal and retire". Conservatism[edit] In September 2016, Hannan launched The Conservative,[62] a periodical publication in print volume and in an online version published quarterly. In an editorial, he defined its philosophy as follows: "Conservatism is an instinct rather than an ideology. It is ironic, quizzical, cool-tempered, distrustful of grand theories. Conservatives understand that the things they cherish – property rights, parliamentary government, personal freedom, norms of courtesy – take a long time to build up, but can be quickly destroyed."[63] Hannan also releases regular "Ici, Londres" videos across social media. The name is a reference to the beginning of every transmission from the Radio Londres
Radio Londres
station in London, from which the Free French broadcast over occupied France during World War II.[citation needed] Awards and distinctions[edit] In 2009, Hannan was awarded the Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism for his Telegraph blog.[64] He was shortlisted for the Orwell Prize in blogging in 2011.[65] In 2014, Hannan won the Political Books Awards polemic of the year award, for his book How We Invented Freedom and Why it Matters.[66] He won Speech of the Year at the 2009 Spectator Awards, for his Gordon Brown speech in the European Parliament.[67][68] Bibliography[edit] This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.
