On 10 May 1967, the British Parliament votes by a majority of 426 Members in favour of the country’s accession to the European Communities. Some 35 Labour Party MPs vote against, and more than 40 abstain. On 11 May 1967, the day after the vote, the cartoonist, William Papas, illustrates the dissensions within the Labour Party arising from the United Kingdom’s fresh application for accession to the European Communities (from left to right: Harold Wilson, George Brown, James Callaghan, Edward Heath, Sir Alec Douglas-Home, Denis Winston Baron Healey, Michael Foot and Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Shinwell).
