The Bruges Group is an independent all-party think tank. Set up in February 1989, its aim was to promote the idea of a less centralised European structure than that emerging in Brussels. Its inspiration was Margaret Thatcher's Bruges speech in September 1988, in which she remarked that 'We have not successfully rolled back the frontiers of the state in Britain, only to see them re-imposed at a European level'.
