It is a Battle he expects to win with the help of Laberite opponents ready to defy party loyalties for their principles. Nothing quite like it has hit British politics this Century. The six nation common Market went into business As a sort of customs Union in 1959. Its members have thrived by pulling Down barriers to free Trade. Britain has been seeking to join since 1961 but Only last Spring Heath who began the negotiations to years ago won French president Georges Pompidou to assent to British entry. As Heath sees it entry into an enlarge common Market will restore a Leader to role to Britain by giving it a share in Europe to Prosperity. He and his ministers Are at Chequers the prime ministerial country Retreat preparing strategy for the annual convention of the conservative party beginning Here wednesday. As Harold Wilson to labovites see it British entry on the terms Heath has obtained would Only Shore up european capitalism with British workers paying most of the Cost. By a massive 5-1 margin at their annual convention the labovites demanded an Early National election to allow the people to decide. The Issue has ripped across the tidy frontiers of the parties like a Hurricane. Some moderate tories and labovites Are a ofor Europe a others Are against. Extremists of the conservative right and labor left Are moving toward an unholy Alliance in the Hope of thwarting Heath to policy. Whatever the outcome the Choice to be made by Britain to parliament oct. 28 seems to signal the Start of a turbulent new phase in the affairs of this ancient democracy. In the 630-member House of commons Heath to margin is 27. But about 15 of his followers Are determined to oppose entry. Normally this would wipe out his majority and under the British system a government defeat on such a big Issue would compel Heath to resign. But the situation is not Normal. About 40 labovites headed by Deputy party Leader Roy Jenkins intend to vote for the principle of entry. Some even say Heath to terms would have been accepted by a labor government. Wilson has hinted that Jenkins and his friends can vote just once for the principle provided they rejoin their colleagues subsequently to fight Heath and so Force a National election. Jenkins has yet to respond to the idea of such a frail Compromise designed to hold the labovites together. But left wingers have in Advance denounced it As a squalid Deal that simply won to Wash. The Unity of the labor party thus is in peril. Heath has troubles too. He and his colleagues will be using every political trick to ensure that these do not upset their winning prospects either at this week to convention or in parliament. First there is the Specter of his government to economic management which has thrust unemployment toward the million level and prices toward record peaks. Heath pledged in his 1970 electoral Campaign that his policies would reduce escalating prices a oat a stroke and would Cut Back unemployment. His government thus faces renewed charges that it is withholding expansion of the Economy to prepare the nation for the Rigours of life in the common Market. As a protest 1,000 Cly deside ship workers have rented a train to bring them to Brighton to demonstrate against the government closure of their Yards. Second there is the Specter of civil War in Ireland where a Tough internment policy and a 13,500-Man British military Force have failed to break the resistance of a United Ireland guerrilla movement. Wilson has put Heath on notice that he has until november to shift policy if he wants to preserve bipartisanship on this Issue. Map wire photo top court Man sen. Robert c.
