The British nation, its institutions, peoples, traditions, and history has been undermined and attacked repeatedly over the last fifty years by those who teach in our schools and universities, cynical politicians in our Parliament and the self-interested officials in our communities and institutions.
Today the Traditional Britain Group has been reinvigorated by a new, dynamic generation of young, intelligent and passionate people, determined to make a difference and show that there is, will be, and has always been an alternative – real conservatism.

Professor John Kersey
Talk - ‘Music and Culture’
Professor John Kersey was well received at our 2013 conference and soon after we asked him to become a Traditional Britain Group Vice President. He accepted! We are pleased to say John will be speaking again for our 2014 conference. John is an interdisciplinary historian whose work spans the three principal areas of music, education and traditionalist Catholicism, in particular those movements that developed as a result of the First Vatican Council of 1870. The author of several books, he has also recorded over 100 CDs as a concert pianist, including the first recordings of several unfinished works by Beethoven. He is currently President of European-American University, which operates in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia and specializes in bespoke educational solutions for high achievers.

Talk - ‘Family and Culture: Family Structures’
Our youngest speaker to date, Keir is a former editor at the magazine The Libertarian and now blogs for the Libertarian Alliance. He joined the Conservative party at a very young age and was a Secretary in Conservative Future for some time, eventually terminating his membership over immigration, gay marriage, Europe, and other issues. His main influences are the Austrian School economists, of whom Hans-Hermann Hoppe is one, English libertarians such as Sean Gabb, and to a lesser extent English conservatives such as Peter Hitchens, Theodore Dalrymple, and Roger Scruton. Particular areas of interest for Keir at the moment include 16th and 17th century English history and the works of Plato, Nietzsche and Kant.
Paul Weston, Chairman of Liberty GB
Talk - TBC
“I started writing articles about the left-wing destruction of traditional Britain in 2007, which led to my joining UKIP in 2010. I stood in the last General Election but resigned when it became apparent that UKIP would not confront the Islamic issue, which I consider to be the greatest threat to Britain since Nazism and communism. I joined the British Freedom Party in late 2011, but became disillusioned with the direction it was taking, over which I had little control. In 2013 I established Liberty GB with a small group of ex-British Freedom activists who shared my own political ideology – which is that for a political party to seriously compete in a general election it must appeal to Middle Britain, rather than just the core nationalist vote which the leftist mainstream media find so easy to vilify and smear. If we are to discuss taboo subjects such as mass immigration and Islam, it is imperative we do so from an elevated moral and ethical position impervious to leftist character assassination.”
