The Eurocrisis and the changes brought about by a globalised world have further fuelled Euroscepticism in Britain and the success of parties like UKIP. In January 2013, British PM David Cameron announced a renegotiation of the terms of Britain’s EU membership and at the end of that process, promising an in/out of Europe Referendum. So what is at stake for British withdrawal in the contemporary context? Baron Roger Liddle argues Britain has lost many opportunities for leadership in Europe, but that continued membership is more important now than at any other time.
