Will Blair's European Dream Be Brown's British Nightmare?
Speaker(s): Sir Stephen Wall
Chair: Maurice Fraser
Recorded on 3 May 2007 in New Theatre, East Building.
Tony Blair was at ease in the European Union. He saw the EU as part of the solution to the challenges of economic reform, energy security and climate change. Gordon Brown does not like 'abroad'. Will he be tempted to play the euro sceptic card? Will the EU constitution be, for him, a text too far? Or can Brown do for UK relations with her EU partners what Nixon did for US/China relations?
