Having been elected the Conservative MP for Hammersmith and Fulham in 2005, and for Chelsea and Fulham in 2010, Greg Hands MP recently resigned from the government to honour a commitment to his constituents to oppose the plans for a third runway at Heathrow airport. The Prime Minister had whipped the party to vote in favour of the controversial Heathrow expansion plans, which will see a number of small villages demolished to make way for a third runaway. The magnitude of this resignation should be considered in the context of Greg's former role as the Minister responsible for trade policy, as the UK gets ready to leave the EU. Gareth speaks to him about his recent career decision, coupled with his views of the world today.
