CEFEUS Director comments on Jeremy Corbyn’s view of Europe

Dr Amelia Hadfield, Director of the Centre for European Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University, appeared on the BBC News Service last Thursday to discuss Jeremy Corbyn’s support for continued British membership of the EU. She discussed the matter with host Roberto Perrone, who asked about the significance, and credibility of Corbyn’s announcement that Labour MPs should vote to remain.

Dr Hadfield emphasised the importance of history in her talk, situating the significance of Corbyn’s move in the context of the Labour left’s traditionally antagonistic relationship with the EU, and speculating as to the personal ideological and political struggle the issue has raised for the Labour leader.
