Stuart Agnew MEP - European Parliament Member


Stuart Agnew

Stuart Agnew is the UK Independence Party MEP representing the East of England. He is a farmer and lives in Norfolk. Stuart is a member of the European Parliament's Agriculture & Rural Development Committee, where he is often a lone voice in speaking up for British farmers and trying to make the Committee understand the practical effects of their proposals on farmers, in the real world. He is also UKIP’s Agriculture Spokesman.

He was a UKIP candidate in the 2001 General Election for Mid-Norfolk, the 2004 European Parliamentary Election (Eastern Counties), the 2005 General Election again for North Norfolk and also stood for the North Norfolk District Council in 2007. Stuart was elected to the European Parliament in June 2009 and was re-elected in 2014. Stuart was UKIP's Parliamentary candidate for Broadland in 2010 and 2015.

Outside of UKIP, Stuart Agnew is a member of the National Farmers Union and served as their Norfolk County Chairman in 1998. He was also the Norfolk Delegate to the NFU HQ Council from 2000 to 2009, when he relinquished the position on being elected to the European Parliament. He is a keen campaigner against the man-made global warming myth and on coastal erosion.

His career has included farm management, serving as a Soil & Water Conservation Officer in Rhodesia and in the Rhodesian Army. He currently farms near Fakenham, Norfolk, where he has 35,000 free range layers, 500 ewes and 400 acres of arable land. Since being elected to the European Parliament, he has handed over much of the management of his farm to family members and outside consultants.
