I’m delighted to be able to write to you today as the new chair of Best for Britain.
Four decades as a diplomat has taken me across the world, representing our country in Washington as the U.K. ambassador to the United States, and as the UK Permanent Representative to the EU - working for both Labour and Conservative Prime Ministers. So it feels natural to have ended up at the helm of a proudly non-partisan, internationalist campaign group like Best for Britain.
I am looking forward to using my experience to help Best for Britain guide the UK towards a more open and internationalist future.

This is an exciting time. Best for Britain has completed its transition from temporary pressure group to a permanent organisation campaigning for internationalist values in British politics.
However, I know that these times can often seem more daunting than exciting, especially for those of us who want to see the UK working with the world not pulling up the drawbridge. I want us to return to being an open, confident nation with allies around the world, which sets an example for others to follow.
Proposing forward-thinking solutions to global problems and ensuring the UK leads by example in the world is work that means a great deal to me - and I know that it means a lot to you too. As we take on these challenges, I must say a huge thank you. Your support and belief in Best for Britain is what has allowed us to flourish and cement our place in British politics. Best for Britain’s work building stronger relationships abroad and strengthening democracy at home, will continue apace.
I have real faith that civil society can guide the future for good - and I’m so pleased to be a part of your movement for progress, inclusion, openness and political integrity.
Lord Kim Darroch
Chair, Best for Britain
