Roger Mark Casale (born 22 May 1960) was the Labour member of Parliament for Wimbledon in London from 1997 to 2005.

Early life[edit]

He was educated at King's College School, Hurstpierpoint College, Brasenose College, Oxford and Johns Hopkins University.

Political career[edit]

He won the seat of Wimbledon at the 1997 election, one of the surprise results of the Labour landslide as Wimbledon had only ever previously been won by the Labour Party in the 1945 election. Casale successfully defended the seat with a slightly increased majority in the 2001 election but lost it to the Conservatives at the 2005 election.[1]

After Parliament[edit]

Since losing his seat Casale has run his own parliamentary advisors company, Roger Casale Associates Ltd and in June 2013 he founded New Europeans.[2]
