May's announcement this week that she would pull Britain out of Europe's single market has galvanised some of her critics, however. This two-year period seems ambitious compared with the typical time period for negotiating a free trade agreement, even if the complexity of the exercise will to some extent be reduced by the decision to leave the single market.
