Main ProblemThe main political problem that started withthe EEC was a country of the importance ofthe UK to stay away. The British refused tosign for several reasons:
Main Problem 1The importance of trade ties, political andeven sentimental with its colonies andformer colonies, mostly grouped in theCommonwealth.
Main Problem 2His refusal to enter into a customs union.London defended the creation of a free tradearea, which will abolish internal customsduties but in every country should be free toset their own tariffs on third countries.
Main Problem 3The British unwillingness to embark on a project in thelong term that is posed by the transfer of sovereignty ofeach state for the benefit of European supranationalinstitutions. Put another way, the British were, and yetmany are still very far from the goal of European politicalunity.
