Sam Fowles – Glasgow Aye Write!

An insider’s view into how our government has undermined our democratic principles from a barrister who took the Prime Minister to court.
British democracy is on trial. We can no longer hold our leaders to account; the state has too much power; and the truth doesn’t matter at all. Those we voted into government have nothing but contempt for the democratic system that got them there. From exposing the unlawful prorogation of Parliament to helping the smallest city in England against predatory developers, public law barrister Sam Fowles puts our society under cross-examination. Our media happily lies to us. Our politicians brazenly break the rules. And we seem to think there’s nothing we can do about it. If living in a liberal society means anything at all, we need to fight for what’s ours.
