Jonathan Djanogly
Jonathan Djanogly

Date of birth

3 June 1965

Political profile

Jonathan Djanogly became the envy of Conservatives everywhere in June 2000 when he won the battle to succeed John Major in the safest Conservative seat in the country.

He can now expect his parliamentary career to run as long as he wishes.

The fresh-faced Mr Djanogly was something of a surprise choice to follow the moderate Mr Major.

He is a member of the Conservative Way Forward group, right-wing keepers of the Thatcherite flame, and fiercely Eurosceptic.

He has otherwise a fairly standard political CV - time served as a local councillor (Westminster, from where he supported Steve Norris' bid to become London Mayor) and a dutiful fight in a hopeless seat (Oxford East in 1997).

He is the son of Sir Harry Djanogly, a successful businessman knighted in 1992, and prior to his election worked as a solicitor, having studied at Guildford College of Law and Oxford Polytechnic.

He did not join the frontbench until May 2004, when he was appointed shadow minister for home, legal and constitutional affairs.
