Yet the Conservative party’s three-line whip for the vote on holding an EU referendum is not as unlikely as many have argued; it is the culmination of five years during which the party’s top politicians have become more pragmatic about the EU. Here, then, is the secret history of Cameron’s Europragmatism in 10 dates.”
