This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the opposition to Great Britain's membership to the EEC. It briefly reviews the chronology of Britain's application and Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's claim that the Common Market application represented a turning point in British history. This chapter discusses the impact of the anti-Market campaign and the connection between anti-Marketeers and Eurosceptics. It concludes that anti-Marketeers and Eurosceptics were ultimately united by an instinctive reaction to integration, a perception that aspects of European unity are incompatible with a set of achievements and characteristics that they believe define Britain as a unique nation among nations.
