We still don’t know what Brexit policy is

I wrote an editorial for Left Foot Forward on the government’s mixed-up policy on Brexit.

What does Theresa May really want? When will she reveal her choice to the public and stop trying to pretend you can be in the Single Market and ignore its rules? Will the public, through Parliament, have a say on this choice?

Leaving the European Union will be bad for Britain, that is not in doubt; just how bad depends on how hard Brexit will be, on what exactly “Brexit means Brexit” really means.
