He served on the Budget and Budgetary Control Committees, as well as being a substitute on the Constitutional Affairs Committee. He took part in the first ever televised Education Debate on the BBC during the 2015 General Election. At the age of just 15 he became the youngest person ever to go to Sheffield University, and is a mathematician by trade. In May 2019, Jonathan decided not to run for re-election.

Jonathan is a strong believer in democracy and free enterprise. He has supported campaigns for Britain to leave the European Union since 2001, and is fully committed to the fundamental freedoms which should be enjoyed on both sides of the Atlantic: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
He is the author of three books, and currently runs a publishing company in his home city of Sheffield as well as offering political consultancy services to a newly-elected MEP.
