Stuart Wheeler's new book -"What we need"
The Bruges Group is pleased to announce the publication of A Crisis of Trust by Stuart Wheeler.
Wheeler, who made a fortune in business, gallantly tried to defend the British people's right to a referendum on the EU by taking the government to court.
In his new book "he examines, in detail, the political culture that has grown up in Britain since our accession to the EU". He shows "how the expenses crisis is thoroughly the consequence of our suffering from a 'Europeanised' political class – with lavish expenses, PR and centralised party machines all playing their part".
We need to redefine what it means to be an MP.
We need MPs who do not see being in parliament as a career, who do not see life in the Commons as merely an extension of life in civil service with added television appearances, and who see virtue in being independent of their parties, in being able to exercise their own judgement, and in not being beholden for their livelihoods to their party leaders. These are the MPs whom we can trust to give their first allegiance to their constituents."
Copies are free for members of the Bruges Group, and otherwise, £7.50.
