Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Theresa May's keynote speech at Tory conference - Oct. 2016

I want it to give British companies the maximum freedom to trade with and operate within the Single Market - and let European businesses do the same here.

But let's state one thing loud and clear: we are not leaving the European Union only to give up control of immigration all over again. And we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice. That's not going to happen.  

We are leaving to become, once more, a fully sovereign and independent country - and the deal is going to have to work for Britain.

And that Britain - the Britain we build after Brexit - is going to be a Global Britain.

British Conservatives are closely allied to the Republicans in the US on free trade, less regulations, ecology, pollution and labor rights, or lack thereof. The Lisbon Treaty is a major stumbling block for Britain. Primarily, David Cameron and the right-wing of the Tories want to rid Britain of the legislation and jurisdiction of Brussels.

Their ideal world will end in no deal, thus a hard Brexit. I see no option whatsoever and the clock ticks.
