“Banging on about Europe” was what David Cameron (remember him?) pledged back in 2010 he would stop the Conservatives from doing. He hoped to achieve this by promising a referendum on the UK’s membership in the European Union. It is said that Cameron never expected to win the general election in 2015 outright but rather that the Conservatives would probably end up in coalition with the Liberal Democrats again. Did he have a slight sense of foreboding when he realized that, with the surprising outright victory, he would have to deliver the referendum, or was he absolutely confident that the Remain camp would prevail? Or did he really believe – as he asserted to his fellow European leaders in March – that the Remainers had it in the bag because he “was a winner”? I guess we may find out one day when the history of the tumultuous past few months in British politics comes to be written.
