The Traditional Britain Group is delighted to announce that its annual black tie Traditional Britain Dinner will be held on the 14th June in a prestigious venue in central London.
Please join us, and our guest of honour Philip Claeys MEP, from 7pm for a drinks reception (cash bar) followed by a three course meal, including tea and coffee, from 7:30pm.
Philip Claeys, MEP, has graciously accepted our invitation to be our guest of honour, and speaker, at the dinner. Philip was born in Ghent in 1965 and has been a Member of the European Parliament for Flanders with the Flemish conservative & nationalist party, Vlaams Belang (formerly the Vlaams Blok until 2004) for the past decade. He sits on the EU Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, and is a substitute for the Committee on Culture and Education and a member of the Delegation for relations with Australia and New Zealand. Since late 2010, he has been a board member of the pan-European euro-sceptic party European Alliance for Freedom.
Since 1995 he has been a member of the Vlaams Blok Party Executive; of its Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde District Executive and Group secretary in the Flemish parliament (both till 2003). Since 1999 he has been Chief Editor of the Vlaams Blok magazine and from 1995-1999 he was Chairman of the Vlaams Blok youth wing. The party is very active in Flanders and Brussels and advocates the independence of Flanders. It wants strict limits on immigration and rejects multiculturalism: all existing immigrants would be obliged to fully adopt Flemish culture and language. In 2007 the Party won 17 seats in the House of representatives in Belgium’s Federal Parliament and 5 in the senate.
