Driving the United States into Isolation

  • Paul Einzig


One of the most deplorable effects of Britain’s adhesion to the Common Market would be that it would weaken further the special relationship between the United States and Britain. Admittedly that special relationship has long ceased to be anything like as close as it was during the two world wars and for some time also in time of peace. But there is still enough left of it to be well worth preserving and, if possible, intensifying. It is certainly incorrect, or at any rate premature, to assume, just for the sake of strengthening the case for joining the EEC, that the special relationship between the two leading Anglo-Saxon countries is now entirely a matter of the past. All Common Marketeers in Britain are not anti-American, but a great many of them are. They indulge in wishful thinking by pretending that Britain could no longer rely on her special relationship with the United States.
