Quotes by This Author

“What these papers revealed more starkly than ever before, was just how deliberately the Heath Government and the Foreign Office set out to conceal from the British people the Common Market’s true purpose. They were fully aware that it was intended to be merely the first step towards creating a politically united Europe, but they were determined to hide this away from view…For 40 years, British politicians have consistently tried to portray it [the Common Market and EU] to their fellow-citizens as little more than an economic arrangement: a kind of free-trading area primarily concerned with creating jobs and prosperity.” (British Journalist Christopher Booker, commenting on records unsealed in the year 2000 from the Edward Heath government)
