What we can achieve together
Increased promotion to opinion formers
Naturally, there are many issues that the Bruges Group would like to
bring to the attention of the media and put on the political agenda.
With additional funding we can do this. We shall be using our extensive
contacts, our massive corporate identity and excellent reputation to
establish a new association, which will formally bring together those with
influence, from Britain and across the Continent. It will consist of those
who wish to see Margaret Thatcher's alternative vision for Europe forged
into a political reality. This network will be known as: The Bruges Group
The Bruges Group Nexus
Bringing together opponents of the EU
The Bruges Group are the 'honest brokers' of the Eurosceptic movement.
Participants in this network will be opinion formers drawn from politics
(both sides of the right/left divide), academia, business, journalism,
Bruges Group Patrons, the movers and shakers of Euroscepticism and the
EU's critics from across Europe and America.
