Since last year's Brexit referendum, the United Kingdom has been likened to a suicide who jumps off a 100-story building and, as he falls past the 50th floor, shouts "so far, so good".The "deal" to begin negotiations for a post-Brexit relationship, announced at the EU summit on Dec. 15, followed Prime Minister Theresa May's capitulation on all of the demands made by European leaders: 50 billion euros ($59 billion) of budget contributions, European court jurisdiction over the rights of EU citizens in Britain, and a permanently open border with Ireland.If hard and soft Brexit are both excluded, what other options are there?Britain would retain many of its current commercial privileges, in exchange for complying with EU rules and regulations, including free movement of labor, contributing to the EU budget, and accepting the jurisdiction of EU law.If a hard Brexit is economically unacceptable to British business and Parliament, a soft Brexit is politically unacceptable to EU leaders, and a fake Brexit is unacceptable to almost everyone, that leaves just one alternative: no Brexit.
