UK government denies handwritten note on Brexit is policy

AP  |  London 

The British is downplaying a photograph of a handwritten memo that seemed to suggest won't be able to remain in the single market after it leaves the European Union.

The memo was being carried by an aide to a Conservative Party figure as he left the Department for Exiting the offices.

It said: "What's the model? Have your cake and eat it." Officials said Tuesday that the notes don't belong to a official and don't reflect the government's position.

The memo lists anticipated problems with the upcoming negotiating process with governments. It says it's "unlikely" that will be given a chance to stay in the single market.

Prime Minister plans to start the formal exit process by the end of March.
