> But would that actually work in the UK?

Yes. This already happens with the EU; at least some of the unpopular things "forced" on the British government by the EU were actually requested by the UK in the first place.

That sounds plausible. I've heard the US do the same thing, making unpopular changes domestically by pursuing them through foreign policies, then bringing the US "world standard."
