Aimed at an academic as well as a more general readership, this article explores the impact of the concerted propaganda campaigns that were deployed by pro-EU forces at critical junctures in the evolving relationship between Britain and the EU, specifically in 1962 (the first entry attempt), in 1972 (Britain’s accession), and in 1975 (the referendum on continued membership). This is a co-authored piece with Dr Brian Burkitt at the University of Bradford who supervised the PhD from which this arises; approximately 95 per cent of the content is Mullen’s work; and the article is a revised version of an invited paper given at the Political Studies Association Conference at the University of Leeds in April 2005.
