Burrowes (pictured) was the Conservative MP for Enfield Borough Council for 12 years before he lost his seat in 2012 to Labour who won with a 9.7 per cent swing.
Speaking at the Later Life Lending seminar at the Financial Services Expo on 11 September, he said people had been “crying out” for collaborative work on socio-economical challenges, inter-generational fairness, ageing population and social care for years.
Burrowes said he would stand again for the Conservative party and that there needed to be “cross-party collaboration” working together in the national interest.
“That’s what I sought to do then, and it’s needed now. We need people of character who are generally going to work in national interest for the issues that matter and for Brexit,” he added.
