A soft Brexit won't be agreed upon with the EU without breaking a core Brexit promise - regaining full sovereignty over immigration. British leaders were either intentionally lying in that regard, or woefully overestimating the strength of their negotiating position with the EU, for whom it is a matter of survival to hold fast to its "four freedoms".



More than two years after the vote, the UK still has no clear negotiating position regarding precisely what kind of Brexit it wants. The world's oldest parliament, faced with the gravest decision of each MP's career, still has no idea what it's doing.
