The UK has set out how it could operate as an "independent trading nation" after Brexit, even if no trade deal is reached with Brussels.
Prime Minister Theresa May told MPs "real and tangible progress" had been made in Brexit talks.
Hard to know where to post this as it covers several different, but related subjects.
I came in just in time to see May's speech to parliament at 4.30pm. May was talking about her already announced two year transitional period that she now calls a implementation period. Basically she is hoping to agree with the EU a deal that post 2019 will allow enough time for business' for prepare to exiting the EU, but for me it was not what May said, which was next to nothing, but the question that Jacob Rees-Mogg asked her.
Mogg asked her if the UK would be subject to EU law during this two year phase and although buffeted by wishy washy language, the basic reply is yes. We voted to leave, but we won't really be leaving until 2021. That's from the horse's (May's) mouth, not mine.
Although this is not the thread for it, I think May has just slit her own throat with her Brexit MPs on this.
The inked BBC article talks about May preparing for no deal, but I am under the increasing view that she doesn't intend for us to leave the EU at all. Over to you Boris, do your stuff!
