British Prime Minister Theresa May published her blueprint for relations with the European Union after Brexit Thursday, putting at its core a plan for a free trade area for goods that has angered many in her party.With less than nine months before Britain is due to leave the bloc, May has been under pressure from businesses, EU officials and her own lawmakers to spell out her negotiating position to unblock the all-but-stalled Brexit talks.The white paper acknowledges there will be more barriers to Britain's access to the EU market than is the case today, but it has prioritized maintaining trade ties for goods and details a plan for a facilitated customs arrangement with the EU.Britain would accept their rules and contribute to their costs, the white paper said, but recognizing that Britain is no longer a member state.With the detail now published, May hopes to speed up the talks with the EU before Britain leaves in March next year.
