Lord Tebbit can be relied upon to put his finger on reality.
"The form that the UK’s departure from the EU will take lies somewhere between the poles of so-called “hard’ and “soft” Brexits.
He went on to list hard Brexit, extreme Brexit, and soft Brexit, before asking the Minister for Exiting The European Union, Baroness Anelay, if she would "explain to the House the difference between soft Brexit and remaining in the European Union."
The minister replying to his question sidestepped it, saying that she wanted to talk about a "successful Brexit"
I think I would try to explain it all by the analogy of the cat which had decided to leave the house in which it had been living, but became stuck in the cat flap -- head in the clean fresh air and backside still in the kitchen. That is what the Remoaners would now call Flexit.
In their hearts they mostly understand all this perfectly well but hope that behind their smoke screen of confusion they can frustrate the will of the voters and keep this Kingdom under the rule of Brussels.
That tactic was used rather well by Lord Dykes who spoke of " the reality that the Brexit mandate ....no longer exists" and suggested that the Government should "listen to the increasing advice from all sections of the population that we remain a member of the European Union."
