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.[1] 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.[2] The Conservatives secured four seats, but Twinn served briefly as an MEP from 21 October 2003 until the 2004 elections after the ill-health resignation of Lord Bethell.[3] 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.[4]

Twinn is a former lecturer.[5]
