"She's gone for the full works. People will know when she said 'Brexit means Brexit', she really meant itHowever wWriting in The Sunday Times, Brexit Secretary David Davis said the Government would be seeking to forge a "strong new partnership" with the remaining 27 member states.
"We don't want the EU to fail, we want it to prosper politically and economically, and we need to persuade our allies that a strong new partnership with the UK will help the EU to do that," he wrote.He also indicated that the Government would consider some form of transitional arrangement - a move likely to be regarded with suspicion by hardline Brexiteers who have been demanding a clean break."It proves necessary we will consider time for implementation of the new arrangements,"
"huge impact on jobs and wages in Wales".He added..
..."The reality of what we're going to hear from [Theresa May] on Tuesday, it's going to be the greatest job-killing act in Welsh economic history, probably in British economic history,"
Meanwhile the latest Welsh Barometer Poll still shows a Nation divided you can see it here but as Professor Scully comments
Our new poll is the third one in Wales to ask about voting intentions in such a hypothetical second referendum since last June. All three have shown the nation continuing to be very closely divided:
|Poll||% Remain||% Leave||% DK/ WV||% Leave Lead|
"Perhaps we will see a change when we find out just what Brexit means and whether there is any form of open Market"/
Though the Barometer Poll seems to indicate Leavers are pretty solid
“Thinking about Britain’s relationship with the European Union now it has voted to leave, which of the following would you most like to see?”
|Britain should leave the EU completely and have no sort of formal deal with the rest of the EU||3%||32%||18%|
|Britain should try to make only a limited deal with the rest of the EU, restricting any deal only to trade||11%||46%||27%|
|Britain should try to make a wider deal with the rest of the EU, giving Britain full trade access to the rest of the EU, in exchange for allowing EU citizens to live and work in Britain||26%||10%||18%|
|Britain should try to reverse its decision and stay in the EU||50%||2%||23%|
|None of these||1%||1%||3%|
As Professor Sculy sates
"So more than three-quarters of Remain voters prefer either a ‘soft’ Brexit or no Brexit at all, while almost four-fifths of Leave voters indicate a preference for a ‘hard’ Brexit. And across the sample as a whole there is no consensus whatsoever: no option wins the support of much more than a quarter of people. Once again, the basic point is reinforced – there is no public consensus about Brexit emerging. Wales – and, one imagines, much of the rest of the UK – continues to be deeply divided about the issue.
We are still in the dark on what form of Brexit we are going to have and if the Welsh Polls are any indication then it suits Theresa May and her government to keeps us in suspense.
So maybe we may not be any wiser n Tuesday after all.
