    Otherwise it will be Brexit-Lite.

    I like the idea of a points based system.

    Haha, people have been sold down the river.

    We can't have points based immigration and the single market, so we're not getting points based immigration.

    We'll end up with Brexit-lite and EU-lite.

    I suspect the Conservatives will put the single market ahead of immigration controls. So there is going to be a lot of angry leave voters when they discover they are still outcompeted in the labour market by unskilled Europeans who barely speak any English.

    Sorry, but if you're outcompeted by someone with no skills who can't speak English you probably aren't a very attractive employee regardless of immigration law.

    We cant have it all sorry. And we're definitely not getting a points based system lol. The EU are going to be very harsh to deter other countries planning to leave.

    Exactly, but I've heard the argument so many times by those who wanted to leave the EU.

    If the Tories have to choose between access to the single market for their company director friends or working class poor hit by cheap migrant labour, there is no contest.
