A former Conservative Member of Parliament, John Browne was a Vice President of the UK Independence Party that triggered and won Brexit. He retired as a Major in the Grenadier Guards, having served as a pilot and a parachutist. On public duties, he had responsibility for the pallbearers at the State Funeral of Sir Winston Churchill. He has a Master of Science from Cranfield Institute of Technology and an MBA from Harvard. He is interviewed regularly on TV about political, economic and financial matters.
After graduation from Harvard, John spent time as a somewhat unskilled cowboy on a working ranch in Wyoming. Subsequently, he joined Morgan Stanley as an investment banker in New York. In London, with European Banking Company, he became Director of Middle East Operations.
In Parliament, he was made the Personal Liaison to Mr. Gorbachev on his first official visit to the West. He predicted Gorbachev would become Soviet Leader. Briefed by John, Margaret Thatcher made her seminal statement: ?I think I can do business with this man.?
John has lectured in many parts of the world, including: at the Kremlin, in Hong Kong, South Korea and in Switzerland. He predicted both the Brexit vote and, in July 2015, the Trump Presidency.
John currently is a Partner of Frazier, Browne and Mayer LLC (an independent economic and financial research company), a Realtor at Illustrated Properties (specializing in luxury properties) and author of "Hidden Account of the Romanovs."
As far as Royal knowledge is concerned, he attended the Constitutional Committee and played polo in the Windsor Park team with Prince Philip and Prince Charles.
I understand he danced on occasion, with The Queen.
