NotesNews : The alliance of convenience between New Labour and the sceptic press was always bogus and is now, at long last over. The Blair government has liberated itself over the past week to emerge in its true pro-European colours.So far in the 1990's, the domestic debate has been framed largely in sceptic terms. Everything has been portrayed as a zero sum game with Britain on its own against the rest of the EU and always the loser. Ministers have been forced to argue against the stereotype. Tony Blair is not blameless. He wrote a crass "I'll always battle for Britain" article for The Sun on the day before the paper endorsed him in March 1997.
