Preface from the Chairman

Rt. Hon. Sir John Hayes CBE MP

The Common Sense Group stands for authentic conservatism.
With opportunities provided by Brexit, the time for a refreshed
national conversation on the defining issues of our time –
nationhood, community, migration, the rule of law and public
order – is now.
The battle of ideas has been drawn into sharp focus with the
emergence of extreme cultural and political groups, Black
Lives Matter, Extinction Rebellion, Kill the Bill et al. –
subversives fuelled by ignorance and an arrogant
determination to erase the past and dictate the future.
Our group, which has grown to around 50 Parliamentarians,
meets regularly and, over the last year, has campaigned on
issues as wide-ranging as the means by which charities have
been misused for left-wing political ends, to championing
British heroes.
With Conservatives capturing seats across Britain in areas
which had backed Labour for decades, the expectation of our
voters is for a government that, at last, might reflect the will of
the people, rather than pandering to the peculiar
preoccupations of the liberal elite and the distorted priorities
of left-wing activists.
This publication draws together the thoughts of some of the
Group’s members on issues of profound concern to the people
we represent.
The business of politics is values – it’s about place, purpose
and pride. The Battle for Britain has begun, it must be won by
those who, inspired by the people’s will, stand for the
common good in the national interest.

The group has already made headlines with its successful campaign to have the Union Jack flying from public buildings and taking on attempts by “woke” executives at charities like the National Trust to “denigrate British history” including Winston Churchill.
