Wolfgang Ischinger: To function properly, the EU needs Britain

Part 2 [recorded 29 April 2008]: The European Union needs the UK to function properly, according to Wolfgang Ischinger, former German ambassador to the UK. He says the citizens of the UK must see the value of one strong EU view representing half a billion people on issues such as climate change and energy. The UK is vital to a credible global EU foreign policy and continued missions in conjunction with Nato, he says.
