DExEU – 'HARD' AND 'SOFT' BREXIT – 24 January 2017

Dr Julian Lewis: Hard Brexit means saying that one is going to leave the European Union and actually doing it. Soft Brexit means saying that one is going to leave the European Union and remaining in all but name. Which course do the Government intend to follow?

[The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (Mr David Davis): In his younger days, my right hon. Friend was an expert in Soviet propaganda. I am afraid that I view “hard Brexit” and “soft Brexit” as terms of propaganda.]
