The Prime Minister should speak over the heads of Party members and the media to the people that she most identifies with: middle of the road voters.
I am excited by Britain’s post-Brexit prospects but will not stop caring about the EU when I close my Brussels office door for the last time in March.
We prefer Canada Plus Plus Plus. But a question could emerge over the next few months: is it a better option than an unmanageable No Deal – or even no Brexit at all?
