UPDATE March 29, 2017:
Leaving the EU negotiating objectives | PlanforBritain.gov.uk: "The Government has set out 12 negotiating objectives ahead of the UK leaving the EU."1. Providing certainty and clarity
2. Taking control of our own laws
3. Strengthening the Union
4. Protecting our strong and historic ties with Ireland and maintaining the Common Travel Area
5. Controlling immigration: We will have control over the number of EU nationals coming to the UK.
6. Securing rights for EU nationals in the UK, and UK nationals in the EU
7. Protecting workers’ rights
8. Ensuring free trade with European markets
9. Securing new trade agreements with other countries
10. Ensuring the UK remains the best place for science and innovation
11. Cooperating in the fight against crime and terrorism
12. Delivering a smooth, orderly exit from the EU
Information about leaving the EU | planforbritain.gov.uk: "We have ruled out being a member of the single market, as the PM said in the Lancaster House speech. EU leaders have made clear their view that members of the single market must sign up to the ‘four freedoms’ that underpin it — including the free movement of people – and be subject to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice ... Instead, we want a bold and ambitious Free Trade Agreement with the EU. This will enable free-flowing trade in both goods and services, and ensure the freedom for UK companies to trade with and operate within European markets. We also intend to leave the Common Commercial Policy and for the UK not to be bound by the EU’s Common External Tariff so that we can pursue our own independent trade policy, securing trade deals with new partners. The Prime Minister created the Department for International Trade for this purpose."
A fairer society | PlanforBritain.gov.uk: "We will build a fairer society where success is based on merit, not privilege. We have started to rebalance our society in favour of ordinary working people, but now need to do more to turn Britain into a union where success is defined by work and talent, not birth or circumstance. The Government’s Plan for Britain seeks to
- provide access to a good school place for every child – one that gives them the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the future
- ensure there is control of immigration so that it serves the national interest and is fair to everyone who lives and works in this country
- deliver one million new homes, so that more people have the chance to own or rent an affordable home of their own
- continue to invest in the NHS to help people at every stage of their life and support a vital national institution
- help people who can work get back into work so that our welfare system is fair to those who need it and fair to those who pay for it
- tackle historic injustices, like racial and gender discrimination, that hold too many people back.

Theresa May may need to read Trump's "Art of the Deal"--
UK Should Prepare To Walk Away--“Paying Any Exit Fee is absurd”--"... The primary problem in these negotiations is the EU nannycrat fools believe they can force the UK to pay ridiculous exit charges on top of other demands. The ideal approach for the UK is to simply walk away. What can the EU possibly do that does not hurt the EU even more than it does the UK? The sooner Theresa May sets the appropriate tone for negotiations the better off everyone will be. I wrote about this long ago in Brexit Stacked Deck? Which Way? Don’t Negotiate, Just Leave! Serious negotiations can only begin once Theresa May sets the proper tone. The proper tone is the UK is prepared to walk away and pay the EU nothing."--MishTalk.com"Know when to walk away from the table." The Art of the Deal— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 27, 2011
