Britain’s general election has increased the chances of a ‘softer’ Brexit. A softer Brexit is likely to mean a serious transitional phase, to cover the years that will elapse between when the UK leaves the EU and when its future free trade agreement (FTA) takes effect. In the longer term, a softer Brexit would mean introduction of only modest curbs on free movement of labour; staying in some EU regulatory agencies; remaining in the customs union; and retention of a role for the ECJ.
