Prime Minister Theresa May will call on Britons to reject the acrimony of the Brexit referendum in a speech this week that some newspapers have billed as setting the stage for a “hard” exit from the European Union.
Investors will scrutinise May’s speech on Tuesday for clues on whether she plans to prioritise immigration controls and bilateral trade deals in a “hard Brexit” that would see Britain leave the EU’s single market and customs union.
May intends to launch by the end of March the formal process of negotiating the terms of Britain’s exit from the EU, but has so far given very little away about what deal she will be seeking, frustrating some investors, businesses and lawmakers.
