Editorial: Ready to return to Brussels, Sir John?

The prospect of Sir John Major speaking on any subject is an inviting one, given his transformation from much-derided Prime Minister to all-but-perfect elder statesman.

What is a right-minded liberal to make of Britain's sudden isolation in Europe? First, a confession. Along with pro-European political leaders, and along with other pro-European newspapers, we may have been too forgiving of the naive and idealistic, and not forgiving enough of those who questioned the way in which the European elite pursued the goal of ever closer union.
