Chris Patten On The Tory Party

For anyone interested in British politics and the Tory party, there was an excellent piece in yesterdays Guardian by former Governor of Hong Kong and EU Commissioner Chris Patten. The most important point which he makes which can not be reiterated enough is that in a world of free trade (which tories like), the only way for nation states to excercise sovereignty which they would otherwise have lost is through cooperation through institutions such as the EU. If anyone knows why he never ran for Tory leader, please let me know.
