British Prime Theresa May indicated on Sunday that Britain will leave the Single Market after Brexit and build a “really good, ambitious trade deal” with the EU.
May also said that she would set out the strategy for Brexit over the coming weeks and won’t try to “keep bits of membership”, denying suggestions by Sir Ivan Rogers, Britain’s former EU ambassador, that the Government’s thinking on Brexit is “muddled”.
“First of all I will be setting out some more details in the coming weeks as we look ahead to triggering Article 50 but what I am saying is that I think is is wrong to look at this as just a binary issue, as either you have control of immigration of you have a good trade deal – I don’t see it as a binary issue”, Teresa told Sky News.
Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s first minister, described the lack of insight offered by Theresa into her strategy as “unacceptable”.
“I don’t feel as if I know any more about her negotiating objectives today than I did six months ago, and probably what’s more worrying than that, I’m not sure she knows more about her negotiating objectives than she did back then as well,” Sturgeon told the BBC.
