Guardian - Live Reporting: Reports " Steve Baker, one of the most prominent and influential hardline Tory Brexiteers, has been appointed a junior minister in the Brexit department. Intriguingly, shortly before his appointment was announced, he used Twitter to try to recast the debate about soft/hard Brexit by calling for the “softest” version of a real Brexit. "
Lets Get Real:
The question is what is the softest Brexit of a real Brexit, if the UK wants to control its border and Immigration it has to be out of the single market and the custom Union, of course the UK could stay in the Custom Union, that would allow business access as before, but it would mean that the UK could not do trade deals with other Countries. The Conservative Party has to worry that any backsliding by the PM could lead to UKIP coming back in force, even Labour has MPs that want a HARD Brexit, thus its complicated. This blog would support a soft Brexit if it means staying in the Custom Union, that means that the UK COULD not do trade deals with countries outside the UK, but the UK needs to control its own laws and immigration, than means leaving the single market, otherwise the 2016 would have been for nothing. Interesting hours, days and weeks ahead.
