Getting out quick and playing the long game

A ‘three step’ Brexit solution, including an ambitious transitional arrangement, is key to meeting the aspirations of the British people and reaching a mutually beneficial long-term relationship with the EU. This would see the UK leave the EU towards the end of 2018 and enter a transitional arrangement, possibly lasting until 2024, which would offer the time and space needed to more coolly and calmly negotiate a long-term agreement.

After the vote, the decisions. Britain has voted to leave the European Union, but what, precisely, does ‘leaving’ mean? And how can it best be accomplished? These are the issues set to dominate the practical agenda of politics for months, if not years, to come.
