>> Free movement of people between Britain and the European Union in the early years after Brexit. That according to the BBC, the broadcaster reporting that the Prime Minister said she expects some kind of implementation phase or transitional agreement after two years of talks with the block. Theresa May, currently on a trip to Saudi Arabia, triggered the formal divorce procedure with the EU last week.

She's offered few details of how this implementation phase would actually work. But if Britain wants to keep the status quo before finalizing a deal, it will have to accept the EU's rules, free movement of people, capital, goods and services. Immigration was one of the key drivers behind Britain's vote to leave.

May has said she'll respect those fears by not seeking membership of Europe's single market. And added that Britain would have control of our borders and control of our immigration, according to the BBC report. But May declined to say whether her government would rule out the free movement of people in any transitional period after the terms of Britain's departure from the European Union were agreed.
