A lifelong Labour Party supporter and campaigner for the UK to vote to Leave the EU, I am a former Labour Councillor in Camden and was the Deputy Chairman of the London Docklands Development Corporation from 1985 to 1987. I’ve been a Parliamentary candidate twice in 1974 and for the European Parliament in 1979.

Since 1975 I’ve been Secretary of the Labour Euro-Safeguards Campaign and the Labour Economic Policy Group since 1985. I'm currently Chairman of Labour Leave, the EU Referendum campaign that represented Labour voters who do not agree that the future of the UK lies within the European Union. The campaign put forward the progressive left-leaning case for Brexit and successfully fought to get the UK out of the EU. I'm also Vice Chairman of the Economic Research Council and Chairman of the Pound Campaign, campaigning to reverse the decline of British industry and rebalance the UK economy.

On my own or with co-authors, I have written a total of nine books on economics covering the UK, Europe the USA and the world economy. One of my books A Critical History of Economics was translated into mandarin by the Beijing commercial Press and has been used as a text book in Chinese universities.

Why Trump Won

Why Trump Won  by John Mills

Over the past few decades the world has changed. International trade has increased exponentially and we are now more integrated than ever before. Poor people in third-world countries have benefited as a result and so have the rich in the West. But large swathes of the population of the western world have not.

In his hard-hitting pamphlet John Mills explores the reasons and explains why these developments were not inevitable but the result of policy mistakes which we must now urgently address.
