United Kingdom

The UK applied to join the Common Market a couple of times first in 1963 and then again in 1967 but vetoed by France. New negotiations to join the EEC were commenced in 1970 and Britain joined the EEC on 1 January 1973. In doing so Britain had to adopt the CAP and in doing so had to abandon long standing trading with the Commonwealth. The CFP was also part of the conditions of entry.

Britain joined at the same time as Denmark and Ireland in the first enlargement of the EEC. There had been and still remained large opposition to the UK joining the EEC. A referendum on EEC membership was held in 1975 which came out in favour of retaining membership.
The Single European Act of 1986 was ratified by Britain with little opposition. In 1988 Jacques Delors, as president of the European Commission, won over the support of the British TUC for European Union in exchange for what is known as Social Europe.
The Maastricht Treaty of 1992 which included the single currency met with considerable opposition. Britain opted out of the single currency but in practice carried out the strict criteria.

The European Convention which drafted the European Constitution generated widespread opposition in the UK and was placed last in line for a series of referendums in EU Member States. The Constitution was rejected by the electorates of France and the Netherlands. At that point it was clear other Member States would reject the imposition of this Constitution. A ‘cut and paste’ exercise was then performed on the Constitution and turned into the Lisbon Treaty. This Treaty was ratified by Britain.

The opposition to EU membership remains widespread and part of political debate where some support has been gained for another referendum on membership in the future.
