“Theresa May’s letter looking for a deep and special relationship with the EU…”

Now all the shouting and speculation is over this is the letter from Theresa May. Nothing new or radical, but the tone is measured and conciliatory, but going on her Commons statement she’s gunning for no return to an Irish border of the past (covers a multitude of sins).

But she also promised repatriation of powers to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.  Donald Tusk for his part has said that this process will be about ‘damage limitation’. That makes me think: money.
