David was born in 1970 and educated at Bassaleg Comprehensive School in Newport, South Wales. After leaving he spent several years abroad, mainly in Australia where he had various jobs, including as a nightclub promoter, tobacco picker and ‘rickshaw driver’.

Returning to the UK, he gained an HGV licence and spent several years as a continental lorry driver before stepping in to manage the family haulage business.

In 1999 he helped to set up and run the anti-Welsh Assembly campaign. When the Assembly was established he stood for Monmouthshire on a platform of being against the whole principle of devolution and promising to oppose further powers and stand for the Union. He was the only Conservative elected to any constituency and in the 2001 election he gained the biggest majority of any Assembly Member from any party. In 2005 he was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Monmouth and was re-elected in 2010 with an increased majority of 10,425 from 4,527.

David is a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee and also serves as a Special Constable with the British Transport Police. He is an advocate of tough measures to deal with criminality. A keen sportsman, he recently defeated Britain’s only openly gay boxer at a match in London where he fought as ‘The Tory Tornado’. A one time fanatical surfer, he can still be found at Rest Bay in Porthcawl or Llantwit Major although he admits that family commitments have restricted the opportunities to get into the water!

David married his long term Hungarian girlfriend Aliz in October 2003. They live in Monmouth with their three children.
