In the lead up to The People’s Book Prize 2016 we caught up with author Michael Horseman to talk about his non-fiction book

The State of Freedom and Justice

Where did the idea of “The State of Freedom and Justice” come from ?

Well, the answer to that is rather long, in fact I turned it into the last chapter of the book: 5 pages long!

My one word answer would be: Heaven.

A slightly longer one is: I was born for this task. 10 years before my birth my family was forced to leave India after three generations, by a national socialist government.  The emotional trauma of this event came down my family, when I picked it up I responded by writing.  36  years of writing.  The book is the result.  I am only grateful to be alive to see it published.

What is it like to be in the company of talented writers?

I had not thought of it that way; perhaps when my book sells as many as theirs, then I will feel that I have the company of talented writers, and can include myself with them.

Do I have a message for my readers?

Do fish drink!!! Absolutely!  The message is that government is a much simpler and more logical operation than we have ever been allowed to think.  With good government in which “…people matter most”, individuals will be able to live their dreams.  Prosperity will be normal. Justice for all is possible.  Europe and the USA are clearly going through the deepest of questions about what government should be.  The UK’s earthshattering decision to break from the EU is only one example but it gives UK citizens a real chance to start again and rethink the state.  If the UK will enact the proposals of my book, she will once again become Great Britain but much, much better.  I believe that my book is “for such a time as this.”

What can you expect from me in the future?

Chief advisor to the government of Thresa May, the Irish government, and the next USA government.  Amongst others!
