After May's Chequers cabinet meeting, it is being reported that she now thinks that a deal outside the single market that is all the poorer with tariff barriers etc, for our trade, is a price worth paying, to control EU immigration.

Apparently, the view at the meeting was that we need a return to "Victorian energy" to achieve a great future for Britain.

Well there is certainly plenty of Victorian bigotry around these days.

So far from May there has been plenty of hot air and words, but very little action and she is now sounding more like Cameron with her "pledges". Her statement today means she has given up on an effective trade deal with the EU for Britain, and is preparing business to shoulder the future burden of that failure under the guise of giving the foreigner haters what they want.

However, as Home Secretary, she also failed to control non EU immigration, so why should we think she can do any better with the EU. It seems we are destined to get the worst of both worlds.
