I have just learned that Dr Helen Szamuely, erstwhile Head of Research for the Bruges Group, organiser of the Rally for Freedom, a founding member of UKIP, and longtime star of the Eurosceptic movement has passed away. On behalf of the Libertarian Alliance, I should like to express my condolences to her family and friends at this difficult time. Requiescat in pace.
She was also the first kicked out of Ukip by Alan Sked. A silly decision since Sked hates anyone who isn’t a “tolerant” liberal like himself.
A loss to the wider movement
Very glad she lived to see the starting gun of Brexit but what a shame she will not see the real thing.
Not sure she’d have been happy at its direction. She was closely allied to Dr Richard North, co-author of Flexcit, who believes we are headed for a “trainwreck Brexit” that will destroy us economically thanks to the incompetence of the Government.
So sad, a life full of scepticism, a seemingly brilliant mind wasted with inward lookers and Little Englanders – what a waste
