Alistair Burt is a British politician and former Foreign Office Minister who served as a Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) for North East Bedfordshire from 2001 until 2019 having previously served as MP for his native Bury North in Greater Manchester from 1983 until 1997. Alistair was one of the 20 people to have the Conservative whip removed in the Autumn of 2019 because of his views on Europe and a no deal Brexit. Despite having the whip restored a month later he decided he wouldn’t stand in the December 2019 election. This is a fascinating interview and we hope you enjoy it.
