Have I woken up in a parallel universe where everyone is being civil?

Of course not. EU parliament negotiator Verhofstadt thinks "it's an illusion to think the UK can have single market advantages without obligations". He does concede that May's speech gave some clarity.

May is going to be a busy bunny this week as Sky news say she's going to be meeting CEO's from JPM, Goldies and Morgan Stanley in Davos on Thursday. I wonder what those buggers will try squeezing her for.
