The Sunday Quote

''So let us have less talk of this narrow nationalism. It is not a matter of just any union, it is a matter of what are the effects of the union. Is it an aggressive one? Is it a damaging to others ? Is it selfish? Is it inward- or is it internationally minded? Is it power-hungry or is it satisfied? Does it erect barriers as well as pull them down? All these questions have to be asked, if we are to be honest, before we can decide."

Speech by Hugh Gaitskill leader of the Labour Party 'The end of a thousand years of history' on Britain's status within a converging Europe . Labour Party Conference 3 October 1962.
