Public Opinion and European Union: Thatcher versus the People of Europe

  • John Pinder

Abstract

The Schuman plan was one of history’s dramatic moments. But the drama was played with a small cast: a few ministers, officials and their close collaborators. Schuman, in calling it the first step towards European federation, indicated its tremendous potential; and the neo-functionalists did Monnet an injustice if they gave the impression that he expected the further steps to be taken without political battles. But he probably did think in terms of repeated dramas with small casts: of battles to be fought through the corridors of power.
