I am delighted to support the John Adams Society. I have had the privilege of speaking to the Society twice, and meeting many of its members. So I have seen at first-hand their passion, energy and enthusiasm for the Special Relationship.They radiate ideas and committment; we are lucky to have them; and I am proud to consider myself a friend of the Society.
In my position as British Ambassador to the United States, I see every day the value of bodies like the Society. Both of our nations need the free thinkers, the cultural exchanges, the better understanding of each others’ histories and the challenges we face. The John Adams Society exemplifies the historic alliance between the UK and the US, and the ties that bind us. In this turbulent world its work and values are more important now than ever.
