For democracy & freedom
The European Foundation originated at the headquarters of the Maastricht Rebellion in 17 Great College Street in 1993 and at the same time as the Maastricht Referendum Campaign. Both were founded by Bill Cash who has remained the Chairman since. The Foundation has been at the heart of Eurosceptic campaigns, supplying amendments and briefings to Parliamentarians on all the Parliamentary Bills to implement in British domestic law the successive EU Treaties up to and including the Lisbon Treaty. The Foundation’s Patron was Lady Thatcher, and it remains pre-eminent for legal and political analysis of the UK’s relationship with the EU.
