So... why did the Tories decide to leave it.In order to win a general election. Having made a few quid by buying public assets at knockdown prices but failed to fully privatise the NHS, then realised that the influx of cheap labor wasn't particularly popular with the electorate and could be blamed on Tony B Liar, seen the writing on the toilet wall for the UK's net balance of trade, and being unable to implement strict Laura Norder policies because of Yuman Rites, it occurred to the few Tories with functional brain cells that this was a good time to deploy the Corbyn card (the Left being in total disarray about Europe) and win a few seats north of Watford.
Never accuse the Tory party of being longsighted (joining the Common Market was an obvious longterm trade disaster) or consistent, but you can't fault their opportunism.
