The publication is the second edition of the volume that had been received with a great interest and has already profoundly contributed into stirring up the political debate of the centre left in the United Kingdom. The new release is not only updated, but also forward looking considering different scenarios that may effectuate in just months to come. Taking benefit from the historical perspective of 1975, but also of the author’s first hand experiences with the EU politics and the Labour strategies for Europe, the pamphlet provides a panorama of 5 key issues:
How has the renegotiation agenda shifted?
How are EU partners responding to threats of departure from Britain?
What was the impact of the 2015 general election?
What are the politics of a referendum on membership?
How can a pro-European case be made?
By seeking answers to these questions, Roger Liddle assesses the impact of a series of miscalculated gambles by David Cameron and his forebears that leaves Britain teetering on the edge of an exit from the European Union.
