Britain and the European Union: A Bad Romance?
Professor Alex Warleigh-Lack, School of Politics
The UK’s relationship with the EU has always been difficult, but with the recent veto by Mr Cameron of the new EU Treaty, it has reached a new low. In this lecture we will look at the UK-EU relationship as if it were a marriage. Starting with how the couple got together, we look at how they have arrived at their stormy relationship today, when talk of separation or even divorce is quite frequent. Should they stay together? Or, is this just a bad romance that both parties would be happier without?
