Forty years ago today, in what was arguably the most fateful political move ever made by a British Prime Minister, Edward Heath took us into what was then called the ‘Common Market’.

Such a step had scarcely been mentioned at the previous General Election, and the British people had very little idea of what they were letting themselves in for, other than a trading arrangement that might make it easier for us to sell our goods to our Continental neighbours.

Four decades later, the picture could scarcely look more different. We have seen that supposedly cosy club we joined transformed, step by step, into a vast, bloated bureaucratic empire, imposing its suffocating rule over 27 nations.

We have also seen it plunged into the most destructive crisis in its history — one it has brought entirely on itself by its reckless dream of locking the countries of Europe together into the straitjacket of the euro.

  1. The PM that could have taken us out of the EU was Margaret Thatcher. But then she was stabbed in the back, Brutus style, by her own Europhile MPs.

  2. The common market was a good idea, the EU was an incredibly bad one, it was put together as a way for the socialist/communists in Europe to take over all nations. It has done massive damage to Europe and will continue to do more damage as long as it exists.

  3. Socialist/communists/progressives are like Muslims and Islam. Wherever they go, they lead a trail of devastation and genocide behind them. Eastern Europe and Russia suffered under the regime – 50 to 60 million killed, and the entire nations traumatized. It will take a couple of centuries for them to recover.
