So far as the timetable for leaving, it is obvious that both parties will be trying to arrange this in the way that is most convenient, rather than bending over backwards to suit the other side.

Obviously for the EU it makes sense that, if the UK it should do so as promptly as possible. That means, the two years provided for, quite long enough.

That might not suit the Conservative Party, but so what?

I imagine a fair compromise will be reached. If the Conservatives will have a new leader, and the country a new Prime Minister, by October, that would be a reasonable date for the two year countdown to start.
