Predicting a narrow win for the Treaty of Maastricht

Julian Nundy talks about how The Independent was a paper that was willing to take risks, illustrated by an episode when the paper backed his prediction that the referendum for the Treaty of Maastricht would only pass by a narrow margin, despite widespread belief there would be a strong majority in favor. Nundy was supported by the editorial board–although there were some doubts about his judgement–and this paid off when results showed only 51% in favor of the treaty.
