He served as the Councillor for Knightsbridge on the Westminster City Council from 1974 to 1978.
In the 1992 UK General Election, Browne decided to stand as an Independent Conservative candidate in Winchester after he refused to submit his name for what he termed "a disgraceful socialist style" re-selection by the Conservative Party after being suspended briefly from the House of Commons for not declaring two of his numerous business interests, as he was instructed not to do by the Registrar of Members' Interests, as being "unnecessary". He lost his seat and later joined the UK Independence Party, becoming a Vice-President.
