About Dr Richard North

After a brief career in the Royal Air Force, Richard North became a local government officer and then ran his own consultancy business for two decades.  He then moved into trade politics and thence to the European Parliament as research director for the group of European Democracies and Diversities.   Through this professional work, Richard obtained first hand experience of the damaging effects of Brussels directives and their interpretation by UK officials on British businesses, and has gained an unrivalled insight into the workings of the European Union. Along with Christopher Booker the Sunday Telegraph columnist, he is the co-author of The Great Deception, the seminal history of the European Union. Dr North has also written two books on bureaucracy and the EU, with Christopher Booker, and one on the death of British agriculture.
