There was a warm international reception, too, with 'relief and satisfaction' being expressed by the OECD. (38) The EEC Six called the Budget 'courageous', with the European Commission forecasting a British balance of payments surplus by the end of the year.(39) The IMF were said to have been 'extremely gratified by the Budget, which fulfilled – and perhaps exceeded – all that Britain was expected to do restore payments equilibrium'.

42. The crisis [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... all deeply depressing at one level – and hilarious at another. Based on nothing more than a hunch about the shape of the future, a Labour government is pissing away what was left of the manufacturing base after the Thatcher governments had a go at it. This country's fishing industry was largely wrecked as part of the price of entering the EEC in 1972. The steel industry was 'rationalised', and, like coal, was mostly closed in the 1980s. Agriculture is being reduced under 'set aside' schemes and another chunk will vanish as a result of the foot and mouth outbreak; and a further section will go as the result of the collapse of farming incomes in the ...

... broad brush and their accuracy was frequently not known for many months after their appearance – the precise reason pre-1930 for not producing them on a monthly basis. Once published, though, they attracted immense publicity and remained a critical feature of domestic UK political life, breathlessly anticipated each month by the media until the UK's entry into the EEC in 1973 when regular bulletins about how the Sterling Area was performing became somewhat less important.2 9 The mixture of assertions and assumptions that the Treasury deployed when dealing (with a Labour administration) looked unconvincing even in 1931. Was it 28 Ramsay MacDonald did enquire if the major US banks would modify their demands – they declined. ...

... left grew and industrial conflict grew. Wilson and Barbara Castle tried to reduce the unions' power with the 'In Place of Strife' proposals, but were seen off by the unions and the Parliamentary Labour left. Labour lost the election in 1970. In came Edward Heath who wanted to turn Britain into West Germany, with membership of the EEC, and a semi- corporate state in which the trade unions are embraced by the state in exchange for influence. (Essentially the same thing that Harold Wilson and Barbara Castle sought.) The trade unions resisted this embrace (registration under the Industrial Relations Act) and industrial conflict grew. The 'flying pickets' of the Yorkshire NUM ...

... public life for many years afterwards. For Major Smedley shooting a business rival dead in 1966 did not prove any impediment to continuing his political ambitions. In the 1970 general election he stood as the Liberal Party candidate in Bethnal Green – an area noted for the robust, individualist opinions of its electorate. He remained active in various anti-EEC campaigns throughout the 1970s. His colleague at the Institute of Economic Affairs, Sir Anthony Fisher, became one of the most influential exponents of the renewed right-wing economic liberalism of the late 1970s and early 80s. 37 The Khemlani Loan is covered extensively at <www.theage.com.au> and elsewhere.

... of payments was in surplus. But they paid the price for domestic cutbacks, rising unemployment and the disillusionment of their political supporters: they lost the 70 Winter 2010 election in 1970. The Rise of the City in the 1970s Led by Edward Heath, the Conservatives returned in 1970. Heath had one overriding aim: British entry into the EEC.1 6 Although he had studied economics at Oxford as part of his degree, events would show that he had little understanding of the British economy. In the first year and a half of his government he appeared to believe that the best way to prepare the British economy for EEC entry was a dose of competition and freedom – ...

After the defeat of CND at the Labour conference of 1961 it was European Economic Community (EEC) membership which became their great cause. With this achieved with the EEC referendum vote 'yes' in 1975, when it came to the ideological struggles within the Labour Party in the mid and late 1970s, in David Marquand's words, ...

... of these moments, I have two other niggles. One, the author – perhaps inevitably, in a work of this type – seems over-reliant on what may be called the official-unofficial record. Here is an example from the EC membership application chapter. We learn that: 'The decision to apply for British membership of the EEC [European Economic Community] was taken at a meeting held in the Prime Minister's room in the House of Commons at 3pm on Friday 21 July 1961.....A hot Friday afternoon is an unusual time to hold a Cabinet meeting except in times of crisis, particularly just before Parliament rises for the summer recess.

Richie may not remember that Gould was one of the leading anti-EEC figures in the Labour Party of the 1980s and never believed in the free movement of people or the rest of the EEC/EU package.

... Tittle-tattle Tom Easton Friends of 'the Friends' in the North W atching the coverage of the Scottish referendum campaign from south of the Border made me wonder if this is what it must have felt like during the EEC vote in 1975 – the privately- owned media majority marching in one direction alongside the BBC and the big noises of politics, capital and the state. In this case it wasn't fearful warnings about 'missing the European boat', but other terrors – including more real terrorism to come, according to Lord Robertson of Port Ellen – if the Scots voted to let go of nanny London and inch towards the removal of Trident from Holy Loch.1 The ...
