Tim Congdon's political website

Tim Congdon joined the UK Independence Party in January 2007, out of despair at the political elite's betrayal of Britain's independence to the European Union. This website began as the campaign website in Tim's 2010 bid for the UKIP leadership. (Tim was runner-up to Nigel Farage, the current party leader.) The website covers both UKIP themes, and wider political and economic issues arising from the UK's membership of the European Union.

Tim Congdon - a short biography

Tim Congdon is one of the UK's most prominent advocates of sound money and free markets. Although most of his career was as an economist in the City of London, he has been a visiting professor at Cardiff Business School and the City University Business School (now Cass Business School). In 2015 he set up the Institute of International Monetary Research (www.mv-pt.org) at the University of Buckingham. His most influential public role was as member of the Treasury Panel of Independent Forecasters (the so-called "wise persons") between 1992 and 1997.
