Overview
-

Norman Lamont was the Chancellor of the Exchequer who fought in 1991-92 to keep Britain inside the European monetary system, and who in 1995 is now its most vociferous critic. In this book Lamont reveals how, in his view, Britain had lost control of her own economic policy, and how Europe had convinced him from the inside that never again must Britain allow its affairs to be run by France, Germany or anyone but itself. He gives information on how the European Union is now an alliance of "France and Germany first". He explains how in 1991 he beat off the pressure from Jacques Delors in Brussels, 10 Downing Street and the Foreign Office to make ERM membership binding on Britain, and he tells why, in his opinion, Europe's exchange rate mechanism and single currency are headed for disaster. Lamont is the leading Conservative to think the unthinkable - that Britain may yet have to come out of the European Union. He believes that his is the vision of Britain's brightest future - a country free and independent, sovereign and wealthy, cut loose from the utopian dreams of Brussels.
