The speech transcript is below from the Independent. It dates from 3rd October 1962 when MacMillan had been trying to join the Common Market and ran into De Gaulle's Non on 14th Jan 1963. Gaitskell died 4 days later on 18th Jan 1963.
De Gaulle was violently anti US and UK who had given him his country back. De Gaulle could never swallow that.
This attitude still prevails amongst French EU officials who 'run' the EU to this day which is the main reason all UK attempts to reform the EU have, and will continue to fail. We are wasting our time. Best leave the French for Putin to sort out.
Gaitskell died in mysterious Livitenko type circumstances in Jan 1963 aged 56.enabling Wilson to become Labour leader and PM. Something Peter Wright in Spycatcher identified as game changing. Wilson was always seen as a Russian mole. He made many official visits to Moscow but there was one visit unaccounted for.
It was a brilliant prescient speech forseeing our subjugation by the EU. That other great orator Enoch Powell from the opposite end of the political spectrum foresaw exactly the same scenario. I was appaled when in the Civil Service during Heath's government this speech was consigned to the trash can of history.

If an one can cut it out and post on YouTube omitting Kirsty Wark I would be very grateful.
Ihe Indy not in existence when Gaitskell spoke headlined it as below.
This the line the Out campaign should hammer home in the next 3 months if we don't vote out.
The end of 1,000 years of history
