LONDON: After the maelstrom of Prime Minister Theresa May's election crisis and a struggle in government over the shape of Brexit, business chiefs have a simple request for Britain: Give clarity on how the EU divorce might look. Since May nearly lost her job in a botched June 8 election gamble, ministers have sought to strike a more inclusive tone, even inviting in some chief executives to a 17th century manor house to discuss Brexit over a buffet lunch.Britain has less than two years to negotiate the terms of the divorce and the outlines of the future relationship before it is due to leave in late March 2019, though a transition could give businesses more time to adjust to the new relationship.James, whose company employs around 4,000 citizens from other EU countries out of a total U.K. workforce of about 26,000, said May's government should give more clarity about the transition period."[Everyone] is waiting for clarity on how Brexit is going to affect the outlook and I think basically that we're going to know when we get there," the head of the world's largest security group said.In the absence of clarity from the government, some company bosses said they are planning for the worst – what they call a "cliff edge" Brexit.
