Britain's prime minister has chosen to "say nothing" on the upcoming Brexit negotiations to avoid upsetting certain cabinet members, Scotland's First Minister told CNBC Tuesday.
However, such a stance won't allow her to overcome the divisions within the government.
The divisions within the British government over the shape of a future relationship with the European Union are clear.
Some cabinet members, such as Boris Johnson and David Davis, defend a "hard Brexit" approach, meaning that British businesses would lose access to the EU's single market. But others are concerned over the economic impact that such a decision would have on the British economy.
