Kelvin Hopkins quite often rebelled against their party in this parliament
My hon. Friend is reminding the Conservatives that they did indeed commit many sins in relation to our membership of the European Union, not least of which was joining the exchange rate mechanism, which proved to be an economic disaster. Many of them now regret that because it led to Labour’s victory in 1997.
I have to remind my hon. Friend that the Labour leadership at that time also supported the ERM strategy, which I did not.
