Speaking at the Economist event the Greek Prime Minister mentioned some so-called ‘conventional wisdom’, which he defined as short-sighted projection of the present to the future, inability to understand truly the historical forces. The conventional wisdom foresaw the exit of Greece from the euro-zone and is proved false because Greece and the euro area survive crises.

Does Thatcher and indeed England itself follow the ‘conventional wisdom’ in the suspicion for the European Union?
