NotesArtwork not dated, date estimated from news News: Douglas Hurd delivered a sharp warning to the Conservative Party and Cabinet yesterday against a drift into hostility to Europe. The Foreign Secretary directly challenged John Major's recent show of scepticism with an appeal to the Tories to avoid a "sour defensive attitude" to Europe. "Britain against Europe cannot in our saner moments be our rallying cry," he said, "That is not the approach of a party that is comfortable with Britains proud role in the world". In remarks that appeared to underline Mr Hurds growing isolation in the cabinet and his frustration over its Euro-sceptics rhetoric in the Euro voting rights dispute, Mr Hurd called for an end to the "lunatic" internal battle over Europe. Mr Hurd's remarks came shortly before he flew to Northern Greece to resume his battle with European Union Foreign Ministers over Britains voting rights. [Philip Webster, The Times, 26th March 1994]
