What 'they' say about Dom Raab ...

On Surrey issues:

“Dominic campaigned tirelessly and effectively on the doorstep during the 2009 County and European elections in Surrey. He related to the problems created by the poor deal Surrey gets from central government for local services and was a formidable advocate of Conservative policies. He would be credible champion for local interests and has the conviction, commitment and communications skills to be a highly effective MP.”

Councillor Ben Carasco, Surrey County Council.

“Dominic has made great efforts to understand local needs and the impressive work being carried out by voluntary organisations in the Esher and Walton area. We have visited a number of grass roots community groups together to experience at first hand the enormous value delivered by local people, often volunteers, who care about their communities.”

Dr Helen Bowcock, author of 'Hidden Surrey: Why local giving is needed to strengthen our communities.'

As a potential MP:

“An important member of the class of 2010. Dominic Raab … will be a formidable addition to the Tory benches … a significant player in the debate that the party will have to have once it is in power about where the balance should be struck between civil liberties and anti-terrorist measures.”

James Forsyth, The Spectator

“Dominic has the professional experience, political flair and work ethic to make an outstanding MP for Esher and Walton.”

Dominic Grieve QC MP, Shadow Justice Secretary

“I worked in the House of Commons with Dominic for two years. I can’t think of anyone better placed to fight Esher and Walton’s corner in Westminster – and get things done. He has the experience and tenacity to deliver.”

Rt Hon David Davis MP

“I worked with Dominic for several years when he was Chief of Staff to David Davis and Dominic Grieve and he proved cool and reliable in a crisis, thoughtful in policy development and a good friend as well as an excellent colleague.”

Damian Green MP, Shadow Immigration Minister

On Dominic’s new book The Assault on Liberty – What Went Wrong With Rights:

“One of the most brilliant young political minds of our time … This book will reframe the analysis and discussion in this vital area.”

Peter Oborne, Daily Mail

"Resistance to new Labour’s systematic attack on our civil liberties found voice in several books illuminating what we have lost ­because of the most repressive government in recent times. Dominic Raab’s The Assault on Liberty was the most succinct and intelligent."

Stephen Robinson, The Sunday Times

"A passionate work laments the loss of our precious civil liberties."

John Kampfner, The Observer

“A feisty and refreshing attack on human-rights orthodoxy.”

Jonathan Gray, The Independent
