‘Stop immigration’ is no longer the Tories’ Brexit rallying cry | Matthew d’Ancona | Opinion | The Guardian
Indeed, the persistent distinction drawn between “hard” and “soft” Brexit seems to me a rhetorical device rather than a reflection of reality. A better way of framing the argument is to ask whether our negotiators’ priority will be to reduce immigration; or to protect prosperity and jobs.

Identity versus economy? Xenophobia versus trade? This is a real choice and an unavoidable one, whatever some Brexiteers may say about cake retention and consumption.
