Can the United Kingdom ever reconcile itself to being part of Europe?Proponents of leaving the EU have campaigned on fear of runaway immigration and a cascade of purported dangers – whether delivered by boat or bomb – to the British way of life. Their opponents, who want the U.K. to remain part of Europe, highlight another fear: The loss of jobs that are dependent on European trade.The Conservative Party is bitterly divided on the issue, and many of its most prominent spokesmen have wilted under fire from a hostile Euroskeptic media. As a result, they often seem to be advocating for a half-in, half-out relationship with Europe – for a Britain that is semidetached, rather than fully engaged. Issue by issue, there is a way forward that will make both Britain and Europe more competitive, democratic and accountable.Through active engagement with Europe, we can show that we are more than one half of a special relationship with America, more than one 28th of the NATO alliance, and much more than just one member of an ever-growing EU. On June 23, we should demonstrate that Britain's future lies in leading Europe, not in leaving it.
