Abstract

In 1997 all the main parties promised a referendum on whether Britain should join the euro, but eventually Labour ruled out membership. Anti-euro campaigners went on to hone their arguments in the 2016 referendum. Stuart Smedley (King's College London) suggests that this may have been a missed opportunity for the government to tackle Eurosceptic narratives.
