Loving Social Media and Nick De Bois:
LSM had the opportunity to interview Nick de Bois and ask him some burning questions.
I will never forget Nick being so supportive about protecting Enfield during such a difficult time.
On Sunday evening, 7 August 2011, violent disturbances erupted in Enfield, to the north of Tottenham, among a heavy presence of riot police. Disorder ensued around 5:30 when a police car in Church Street was pelted with bricks. Shops were attacked, including HMV’s branch in Church Street.
De Bois discussed personally witnessing the violence in Enfield in a House of Commons speech. He paid tribute to the actions of the local police force in Enfield but called for a rethink of police tactics to allow the use of water cannons, and suggested that schools should help to identify the rioters based on video footage.
Nick de Bois was John Major’s Constituency Conservative Association Vice-Chairman in Huntingdon between 1992 and 1997 and later MP for Enfield North between 2010 and 2015. Between July and November 2018 he served as Chief of Staff to Dominic Raab in his role as Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
