The fact that British politics has still not recognised that the future relationship will be negotiated only after the withdrawal agreement is agreed is indicative of a public debate that has struggled with the detail; failed to grasp the parameters of what is being negotiated and when; and has wilfully ignored the power imbalance in favour of the EU inherent in the Article 50 process. But once MPs realise that the eventual landing zone is bound to remain uncertain even after the withdrawal agreement is finalised, and the inevitable outcry subsides, an ambiguous political declaration could yet prove to be the best of bad options for May, and for Brexiteers of all stripes.
