May rejects 'partial' EU membership in Brexit speech
UK Politics (BBC News, 17/01/2017)
The UK will not retain "partial" membership of the EU once it leaves, Theresa May will say in her much-anticipated Brexit speech.
The PM will tell other European countries the UK wants to trade with them "as freely as possible" but will not be "half-in, half-out" of the EU.
Her speech is expected to include further hints Britain could leave the EU single market.

Transitional arrangement

Theresa May's Brexit speech: key clues to look out for
Dan Roberts (The Guardian, 17/01/2017)
Theresa May’s Brexit speech is billed as a moment of clarity and an end to “cake and eat it” platitudes. But the words she chooses cannot hide several potential sticking points.

Hard Brexit

Theresa May Set to Outline U.K. Withdrawal From European Market
Stephen Castle (The New York Times, 17/01/2017)
In a speech that holds the potential to define Britain’s relations with its neighbors for decades to come, Prime Minister Theresa May was expected on Tuesday to chart a course toward a clean break with the European Union after more than four decades of integration with the Continent.
Mrs. May is expected to stress Britain’s determination to regain control of migration from the European Union, even at the risk of losing access to the single market and its nearly 500 million consumers.
The long-awaited speech will mark a shift for Mrs. May, who has dropped heavy hints about her thinking but refused to outline publicly how Britain will leave the bloc after voters supported a withdrawal in a June referendum.

Limiting free movement

Theresa May’s Brexit focus should be on the least harmful way of leaving
Peter Mandelson (The Guardian, 16/01/2017)
Theresa May, who makes a major speech on Tuesday, has reached a moment of truth on Brexit. No one can blame her for the result of the referendum – she was a remainer – but from now on she takes responsibility for the consequences. If Britain not only leaves the EU but also loses free access to its main export market in Europe, our economy will become smaller and poorer.
Of course, she will argue that British exporters will not be barred from Europe’s vast marketplace, and technically that is true. But from now on we will be selling our goods and services on Europe’s terms; not as insiders but as competitors and rivals. Any deal that helps us will depend on Europe’s willingness to grant us preferential access.
Without favoured treatment, many exports to the EU could face tariffs in some cases of 10% or a lot more. Robust customs barriers will add significant export costs and expensive delays, and many exports of services will be blocked once we abandon Europe’s single regulatory rulebook. This means not just a hard Brexit but a destructive and harmful rupture that will, over time, reduce trade, shrink manufacturing investment and destroy jobs.
