During prime minister's questions on Wednesday, Jeremy Corbyn teased her for"formally dividing her cabinet into rival camps - as if it needed doing" to consider two different customs models. Now, as her government prepares to publish a White Paper on Britain's future relationship with the EU, there is talk of a third customs option called "max fac plus delay".

The trouble with the British government's internal debate over customs is that it is taking place in a parallel world from that of the actually existing negotiations with the EU.
