The first is the Optimistic assumption that she still thinks (logically if not emotionally) ‘Remain’ was the only rational choice when Leave offered no coherent choice.
She will deliver a ‘political’ Brexit but not an ‘economic’ one.
Our loss of political influence is just the (heavy) price we have to pay.
If she’d wanted someone to grasp the detail and devise a credible hard #Brexit plan, she would have chosen Gove.
You might not like him but he is not as prone to bellicose blather as Davis.
In this Optimistic scenario, May set Davis up to fail (and he seems happy to have played the stooge).
Their position has been clear and consistent all along – they will not undermine the Single Market.
May’s proposals appear to do just that – and so cannot be intended to be taken seriously.
>are setting up the negotiations to fail
>will blame the EU for not giving us our cake
>have chosen to crash-out 29/03/19 as policy not accident.
This would explain why #Brexit Ultras remain on side for now.
They are either stooges or now agree with the #Brexit Ultra end game.
Either way, things don’t bode well for the UK and our standing in the world.
