The story of Britain’s relationship with the EU and its precursors over the last 75 years is to a large extent the story of the Conservative Party’s internal debate on the matter. The Tories have at various times been aloof, dismissive, enthusiastic, half‑hearted, complaining and finally overtly hostile to the plans and dreams of the UK’s neighbours. A new book by Conservative peer Lord Tugendhat explores this, and explains why the party that took the UK into Europe was also the party that 43 years later took the country out.
