Example text

David Cameron was a winner. He had been in trouble before, but he had emerged triumphant from the 2011 referendum on electoral reform and again in the Scottish independence plebiscite in September 2014. Just 413 days earlier friend and foe alike had doubted him, but at the 2015 general election he had won the first parliamentary majority by a Conservative leader in twenty-three years. Nevertheless, as Cameron circulated in the Terracotta Room, aides could see he was nervous – the calmest man there, but nervous nonetheless.

The key question from this period is: could the referendum have been avoided, and if it could not, did Cameron have to offer an in/out vote by the end of 2017? When the cabinet was informed of the decision it horrified the veteran Europhile Ken Clarke: ‘I was not consulted. I read about it in the newspaper. We had a row about it, but it was a done deal. ’ There were practical concerns too. ’ Cameron’s aides believed failure to announce a referendum would have led to a leadership challenge when Ukip won the European elections in 2014.

When he entered the Commons chamber for PMQs later that morning he was met with a barrage of cheers. The Eurosceptics had got what they wanted. Speaking in 2016, a Cameron aide said his main error was to lay out ‘red lines’, but not to use the speech to level with voters and his MPs that it was a starting point for discussion with Brussels, rather than an inviolable text. ‘The problem was that we didn’t make arguments like “We’re going to have to compromise,”’ a senior figure in Number 10 said.
