Neil Kinnock: Tory attitude towards Europe 'isolationist'

Former Labour leader Neil Kinnock has likened Euro scepticism in the Conservative party to Enoch Powell "winning the argument from his grave".

Lord Kinnock said there had been a shift in political attitudes towards Europe since the first referendum on Britain's membership in 1975.

He served as a European Commissioner and vice-president of the European Commission.

Like Powell, Lord Kinnock lost a campaign for a "No" vote 40 years ago.

Reflecting on the current EU referendum and 'Brexit' question, Lord Kinnock spoke to BBC Radio Wales' Sunday Supplement programme.
