I am here in a country that hardly resembles the rest of Europe said the French philosopher Montesquieu in 1729 Europe then known as the old continent was an aggregate of great powers which had no interest in any sort of unification Nearly three centuries later new nations have emerged and new industrial powers have developed International relations are by far more complex and the concept of Europe as a Community economical as well as political made its way into the minds of European countries leaders Agreements were signed in Paris 1951 and then in Rome 1957 setting up a European Community between just six countries The reforms being mainly economical so far this partnership is now composed of 15 and soon there will be 25 member states Only a year after being accepted into the European Union Britain was already regarded as an awkward partner a reputation that still remains today In this essay I will not try to write the history of Britain in the European Union from its entry in 1973 My aim is to take a look at Britains attitude regarding certain events of the composition of the European Union and discuss whether or not this attitude is a factor of Britains awkward reputation We will try to understand the criteria on which decisions were made and assess the degree of Britains awkwardness to each of these As the process of integration was spread over fifty years and is still in progress and since all historical developments are issued from previous events we will adopt a chronological approach This essay looks back as far as what seems to be a relevant explanation for Britains special consideration of Europe By the end of the nineteenth century colonial and civil wars religion empire early industrial revolution and a certain parliamentary freedom had combined to forge a British patriotism enhanced by a public myth of uniqueness
