Escape from Brussels

With no thanks, and no reward having been given to those who fought so long and hard to extricate the UK from the European Union, former UKIP National Executive Committee member Hugh Williams has written this personal tribute as a gesture of thanks to those with whom he had the privilege of working between 2005 and 2015.

In this illustrated, (and to quote) “interesting, informative and enjoyable” read, which is subtitled "Memoirs of a Freedom Fighter and the Friends He Made on the Way", one follows the life of a man who was born into the Conservative Party (his father and both his grandfathers had been MPs) but decides that he has to sever that connection and, in 1997, switch his political loyalty to a small party that many people had never heard of. 

Against all odds, those thousands of volunteers who worked in and for this then-unknown party, pulled off one of the most significant changes of course in the whole of British history, and, with nobody else seeming willing to thank them, Hugh Williams tries to redress that injustice in Escape from Brussels.

Paperback. 98pp.
