This chapter explores the politics of the anti-Market issue as it related to the Labour and Conservative parties, national identity and the shape of the domestic debate. It comments on Hugh Gaitskell's ‘thousand years of history’ speech and discusses Labour's stance as it evolved from a ‘wait and see’ position, determined by fears that the Common Market issue would divide the party. This chapter shows that the anti-Market advances forced the Government into a publicity campaign in support of entry, one that directed most of its energies towards countering the sceptical claims.

Keywords:   anti-Market issue, Labour Party, Conservative Party, national identity, Hugh Gaitskell, Common Market
