What Mrs Thatcher said in 1975
This is what Margaret Thatcher said at the time of the last referendum about whether to stay in what was then called the European Economic Community and is now called the EU (when as Conservative leader of the opposition she lined up with a Labour Prime Minister.)

Nobody can be certain what Maggie would say if she were alive today. Sadly she isn't still with us to speak for herself.
But after a lot of thought I have come to the view that what she said in 1975 was right then and is right today.
