The difference between Hard v Soft Brexit is the idea of access to the Single Market. To be a member of the Single Market, you must accept the four freedoms:

  • Free Movement of Services
  • Free Movement of People
  • Free Movement of Goods
  • Free Movement of Capital

Prime Minister Theresa May (CON – Maidenhead) has said that she will not accept freedom of movement but is confident of getting Single Market access for a post-Brexit United Kingdom.
European Union officials have not looked upon her insistence so kindly, stating that to compromise for one state could lead the Union to unravel.
