Ian David Twinn (born 26 April 1950) is a British Conservative politician. He was educated at Cambridge Grammar School, the University of Wales and Reading University. He then worked as a lecturer. He was MP for Edmonton from 1983 until he lost his seat to Labour's Andy Love in 1997. Twinn was Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party from 1986 to 1988.
In 1999 he was placed fifth on the Conservative Party list for London in the European Parliament elections. The Conservatives secured four seats, but Twinn served briefly as an MEP from October 21, 2003 until the 2004 elections after the ill-health resignation of Lord Bethell. He was sixth on the Conservative list in those elections and lost his seat because the Conservatives won only three. He was listed eighth in 2008.
