Theresa May's new Op-Ed on #Brexit.…

Main proposal is to enshrine Brexit Day 29 March 2019 in UK law
This is again a strategic choice for internal reasons (fix Brexit date!) with devastating consequences for UK position in negotiations
It robs UK of the flexibility to extend negotiations for even a couple of months to ensure ratification, thereby increasing time pressure while UK is already with back at the wall
May also repeats promise of deep and special partnership and cut from EU law on Brexit day. Both are highly unrealistic
No serious negotiator - esp given the experience so far - expects full future agreement on UK-EU27 FTA by 2019. To repeat this illusion sets up May for failure.
The promise of full cut off from EU law by Brexit day is also completely contradictory with a status quo transition. To repeat this sets up May to either give up on transition or cave into EU again.
