The heart of the matter
In "the heart of the matter", Professor Minogue argues that there is a "curious form of idealism that disdains pride in Britain and British culture, preferring to give allegiance to a far more vaguely defined ideology of internationalism. This rejection of national sovereignty, and the subsequent embracing of unaccountable transnational institutions, as advocated by our political establishment, has led to the British people submitting to more and more authority which comes dressed as virtue".
It is an authority which undermines democracy and virtue.
Looking at the energetic men, women and children I see all around me in Britain, I have a growing feeling of confidence that we will move with strength to rebuild our country on creative, accountable and democratic lines.
