The United Kingdom will not be half in continental Europe and half off, and even though Theresa May did not want to evoke a Brexit '' hard '' (hard, opposed to soft), This is what we are talking about. According to the Prime Minister, the UK will seek a partnership of equality, excluding the one for which Norway or Switzerland has opted. If the United Kingdom intends to trade with the continent as freely as possible, in the event of over-binding measures, it may turn into a tax haven by minimizing corporate taxes.

European Union and Britain

Gradually, the United Kingdom will withdraw not only from the European Union, but also from the Court of Justice.

Theresa May evokes a twelve-point plan that she will detail on Tuesday. These include the introduction of visas for EU residents intending to settle in the UK. But the three million citizens of member countries currently resident in the United Kingdom will not be subject to special measures if and only if reciprocity applies to British people who have chosen to reside in the European Union.

A solid economy

Despite the fall of the pound sterling, the British economy has continued to grow and projections suggest a rate of 1.5% for 2017. Theresa May, speaking Monday evening to the diplomatic corps, did not disclose the details of the 12 points mentioned, but some will seek to reassure Scotland and Northern Ireland as well as universities anxious to retain the enrolment fees of many foreign students.

But the Scottish government could begin the process leading to a second referendum on independence. Announcing a twelve-point roadmap is one thing, ensuring that they are stated in a sufficiently explicit manner is another.

12 Objectives

The presentation of a plan into 12 objectives falling under four essential principles is not clearly perceived by a majority of Britons.

Only a quarter of respondents believe that the Prime Minister has a clear idea of the future. The same applies to parliamentarians of both the majority and the opposition. What will happen to provisions for aeronautical companies, and for so many other sectors, are questioning parliamentarians and business leaders. Her statements have been interpreted differently, and even in very contrasting ways.

Financial Markets

The Times felt that in order to calm the financial markets, it has watered down its remarks, while some titles closer to conservatives favourable to a 'hard' Brexit seemed cheerful. But cartoonist Matt of the Telegraph summarized the prevailing opinion with a couple wondering: If only Putin could hack documents on the Brexit and tell us what is going on. If it’s "Plan B" is to turn the UK into a tax haven, the EU will find itself at the foot of the wall: both towards the ex-partner and the United States of Donald Trump, Canada, Australia, but also China and Japan
