Yes Minister: Sir Humphrey explains Foreign Policy

This quote is from episode 1×05 from Yes, Minister, “The Writing on the Wall”. The minister Jim Hacker (to the correct) is naive and pro-Europe, whilst his (far more capable) underling, senior civil service mastermind, his private secretary Sir Humphrey (to the left) explains how the British Foreign Policy has usually been about producing certain the European notion fails. This episode was originally aired 1981, but it is actually extremely present, too. The discussion erupts over the idea of introducing mandatory ID cards to Britain, which is still a hot subject in 2009.
