memo on Brexit leaves 10 Downing Street – photo by Steve Back

A Brexit memo which suggests that the UK wants to “have its cake and eat it” has sparked speculation over whether the Government had revealed details of its negotiating strategy for the first time.
The note, which was carried by an aide to a Conservative party vice-chairman after a meeting in No 10 with Mr. Halbe Zijlstra, says it is “unlikely” that Britain will be given the chance to remain in the Single Market after it leaves the EU.
The document appears to reflect a discussion about the prospect of a Norway trade deal, which is a member of the European Economic Area. It says: “Why no Norway – two elements – no ECJ intervention. Unlikely to do internal market.”Whitehall sources said the memo was a note of comments made at a meeting between Conservative party officials and representatives from the Dutch ruling VVD party.
Mr Field, who is the party’s vice chairman for international affairs, met the Dutch politicians at a meeting in 10 Downing Street. A source played down the significance of the meeting saying: “These are notes for an internal party meeting – a few sketched notes.”
