THE TRAITORS

TO AN INDEPENDENT BRITAIN THAT REPELLED THE NAZIS

Sir Edward Heath, the former Conservative prime minister who took Britain into Europe and became a symbol of moderate Tory resistance to the excesses of Thatcherism, died last night of pneumonia. He was 89.

He stood down as an MP in 2001, 27 years after being voted out of Downing Street. He lost the Tory leadership to his unlikely challenger, Margaret Thatcher, in 1975 – a year after he lost two elections in rapid succession.

 

Which PM signed the Maastricht Treaty?

At Maastricht, John Major had negotiated a treaty which allowed the European Union to develop, but with the United Kingdom opting out of the ‘Social Chapter’ provisions on employment law. The opt out was strongly opposed by the Labour opposition, although it supported the treaty as a whole.

The Maastricht Rebels were British members of Parliament (MPs) belonging to the then governing Conservative Party who refused to support the government of Prime Minister John Major in a series of votes in the House of Commons on the issue of the implementation of the Maastricht Treaty (Treaty on European Union) in British law.

The Maastricht Rebellion was a major event in the life of John Major‘s troubled second term as Prime Minister (1992–1997). Major’s party had a small majority, thus giving the relatively small number of rebels disproportionate influence: for example, there were 22 rebels on the second reading of the European Communities (Amendment) Bill in May 1992, and the government’s majority at the time was only 18.
