Theresa May does have a plan for Brexit



The leaked Deloitte memo claiming that Theresa May has “no plan” for Brexit has provided joyous fodder for so-called “Bremoaners” desperate to prove that leaving the EU is impossible and unworkable, but that doesn’t make it so.

Contrary to that speculative report, there clearly is a Brexit plan being formulating in Downing Street even if the Prime Minister is resolutely refusing to say precisely how she will respond to the mountain of analysis that has been piling up on her desk since she took office.

Officials charged with delivering the technical work on borders, customs, immigration and regulations are charged with having the preliminary work done by Christmas in order for a “political filter” to be applied in the New Year before Article 50 is triggered.
