Format: Paperback
This superbly written book shows the Euro project as it really is; the desire to abolish European nation states; to exert control over all aspects of human & economic behaviour; to create a protectionist trading bloc. Detailed research shows the contempt shown (particularly by the French) of genuine free trade, and the political motives of the so-called European Court. Anybody interested in freedom & democracy must read this book.

John Laughland has created a masterful political and historic study that uniquely champions the cause and nobility of the sovereignty of individual nation states and their right to enjoy those liberal political values and democratic social freedoms that the Anglo-Saxon peoples have always enjoyed and globally championed.
The Tainted Source graphically demonstrates that the political, social and even intellectual freedom of all citizens of the EU are today in dire peril because of the dark and secret political agenda of a German-inspired, EU ambition to break the commercial power and world influence of, principally, the United States; but also any other liberal, freedom-loving nation-state, especially those current and former peoples of the British Commonwealth.
This well kept secret ambition towards a German-orchestrated EU Superstate has been fully supported every step of the way by France, who hopes to share power at any ultimate, world decision-making table. We are shown, that in order to realise this, the EU has, and will continue, to absorb most European nations into its sinister orbit; even having firm plans (already in motion) to closely affiliate itself with Russia, as it attempts to dominate international politics and commerce for all time. Simultaneously, the EU is actively attempting to suppress freedom of intellectual thought and choice within its expanded 'new imperial' frontiers, by spinning a powerful and consistent web of lies and deceit designed to mask the EU's true ambition and also to allay most suspicions until it is too late for any individual nation to offer a legitimate democratic resistance to this age-old Teutonic ambition!

I read this book just after publication in 1997, although I recently bought another copy as mine had become heavily annotated with penciled comments. I have read it again and I would advise all to do likewise. I remember briefly meeting the author some time before publication and he was kind enough to share with me a few of his thoughts on Europe - some to appear later within The Tainted Source. John Laughland's conversation was intelligent, perceptive and very well informed, and I regarded him as a most sincere man.
As Britain now nears a very critical 2015 British general election Laughland's book, if widely read, would be extremely beneficial to UKIP and all who appreciate the honest and long-standing democratic and social freedoms from which the British people have extracted much strength and encouragement. History has shown that we have thrived as a creative, exploratory and embracing race within a wider world largely because of these freedoms of thought and deed and the confidence that will ever be freedom's child. The Tainted Source encapsulates and defends this forgotten truism.
If you truly love the free will that God gave you use to think, speak, act and live out your lives, without fear of tangible interference from the malevolent thoughts, wants and needs of the corrupt and fraudulent EU beast power that has now most definitely risen in Europe, then you must digest this brilliant and highly readable account.
John Laughland makes clear in his exhaustively researched volume the dark, warped, bitter and envious origins of today's European Union, even despite its rather ineffectual and muddled look today. He also hints at its future political and social intentions, which, by definition, simply cannot be as honourable as EU apologists maintain.
