Mr Tugendhat also hit out at claims he lacks experience for the role, having never held a Cabinet position in Government.

He also said: "You're telling me I don't have a souvenir red box, you're absolutely right.

"What I do have are souvenirs from Iraq and Afghanistan.

"I've got a dodgy shoulder and dodgy knees from soldiering in some of the hardest parts of the world.

"I've got photographs sadly of some people who aren't with us anymore alongside whom i served and built a government in Helmand, built the national security council of Afghanistan.

"I've got souvenirs, memories and experiences of the real world."

The MP for Tonbridge and Malling also hit out at people "playing politics", something he vowed to not to do.

He added: "I don't believe in underhanded politics, what I believe in is speaking out for our country in defence of our community and our values.
