The liberal Brexiters have been a bit quiet in the last few weeks.
That is from Duncan Robinson. Of course that is a response to Theresa May’s announcement that formal Brexit talks will start this spring (NYT). If true, that is likely to mean “hard Brexit” with no free trade treaty with the EU, no Norwegian or Swiss status, no nothing, Brexit and nothing but Brexit is Brexit is Brexit is Brexit. I’m still hoping that a raising of the stakes leads to a different outcome, but at this point I’m not counting on it.
In the meantime, those who suggested Brexit would give the UK the best of both worlds don’t seem to have called this one very well.
