Our adventure comes to an end for the moment but we hope Eutopia’s journey will resume soon. All our articles will still be available for reading. Thank you for having supported Eutopia until now.

Nevertheless, if one wants to understand what British Euroscepticism is about, one cannot but begin with Enoch Powell. Contemporary Euroscepticism in a sense vindicates the ideas and positions taken by this extraordinary intellectual.
