The Book

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. Today's anti-democrats claim to represent the ‘will of the people' against ‘activist lawyers', immigrants and the metropolitan elite. Activist lawyer Sam Fowles expertly exposes why that's nonsense!

From taking Boris Johnson to court for his unlawful prorogation of Parliament to helping the smallest city in England fight back against predatory developers, Fowles puts our society under cross examination. Our media happily lies to us. Our politicians brazenly break the rules. And worst of all, 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.
