When politicians started speaking of a ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ Brexit, many Brits were left confused by what these terms meant. With Brexit already being mispronounced as breakfast – by even the most notable politicians – ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ Brexit seemed all too similar to the question of “how do you like your eggs?”
So, what does a ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ Brexit entail? A ‘soft’ Brexit would mean a future where the UK retains some tie to the EU’s single market, so Britain can benefit from low-costing trades. For those who back a ‘hard’ Brexit, it would mean the UK leaving the EU and the single market entirely.
Many are concerned that leaving the single market could greatly impact the profits made from outsourcing cars to the EU, as well as shipping parts back and forth across the Channel. A ‘hard’ Brexit could significantly impact the motor trade industry, so negotiating the right deal will be crucial for the UK.
