British Prime Minister Theresa May in an interview has given no real indication of whether Britain should stay in the single market when the country leaves the EU. Talking to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, she said, “We are leaving, we are coming out, we are not going to be a member of the EU any longer.
“We will have control of our borders, control of our laws, but we still want the best possible deal for UK companies to trade with and operate within the European Union and also European companies to trade with and operate within the UK.
“We mustn’t think about this as somehow we’re coming out of membership but we want to keep bits of membership. What we must say is what is the right relationship for a United Kingdom that is no longer a member of the European Union. The best possible deal for the UK will also be a good deal for the EU.
“I am ambitious for what we can get for the UK in terms of our relationship with the EU because I also think that’s going to be good for the EU.”
As well as vagueness over single market access, like previous Conservative Prime Ministers, she focuses on society. She said, “It goes to the heart of my belief that there is more to life than individualism and self-interest.
“The social and cultural unions represented by families, communities, towns, cities, counties and nations are the things that define us and make us strong.”
“And it is the job of government to encourage and nurture these relationships and institutions where it can, and to correct the injustice and unfairness that divides us wherever it is found.”
Since the incumbent government came to power independent bodies have consistently shown that the gap between rich and poor has expanded, with many reforms which have resulted in the deaths of disabled people are ideologically driven and have brought no economic advantages to Britain.
