All roads lead to Britannia Unchained, the short tract written by a group of young, right-wing Tory MPs that is considered a route map to political renewal.
-Guardian

Synopsis

At a time of profound economic uncertainty, five rising stars of the Conservative party provide a powerful vision for a resurgent Britain

Britannia Unchained argues that Britain needs to abandon pride to learn from other countries to achieve success. It puts Britain firmly within the context of international competition, particularly with emerging economies.

Britain is often cited as a classic example of a declining power and yet Britain in the 21st century still possesses immense advantages: the English language, an excellent higher education, the most excellent financial sector in the world, and a convenient time zone.

While many commentators forecast the decline of the West, while the Asian Tigers are the future, Britannia Unchained provides a persuasive and compelling route-map to an alternative future where through the right approach to education, the economy and a just and fair society, Britain can lead the world once more.

...Britannia Unchained has a brevity, pace and scope that elevates it a little above the usual pre-party-conference polemics.
