Born in 1942, Lord Malcolm Pearson founded an insurance brokerage firm called Pearson Webb Springbett in 1964, which he took public twenty years later. In 1975 he was involved in the Savonita Affair at Lloyd’s of London. His refusal to accept a false claim for cars supposedly lost at sea but later found for sale on the Italian black market, led to reform and a new Act of Parliament. Pearson says his hardened attitude toward the European Union stemmed largely from his membership and participation in the Lords EU Select Committee from 1992 to 1996.
Pearson defected from the Tories to the UK Independence Party in 2007. The Eton-educated insurance broker loves a good battle and is well-qualified to expose the corruption of the Oxford-educated politicians and their neutral-carbon-footprint saboteurs in Brussels, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
Jonathan Aitken, the former Tory cabinet minister, told the Daily Telegraph that, “In my eyes, he has more moral and physical courage – and the remarkable tenacity that goes with those qualities – than anyone I have ever met, short of an SAS commander.”
