Does this mean a soft Brexit?

SHARE
I suppose Theresa May has joined David Cameron, Anthony Eden and Lord North in the club of great failures as Prime Minister.

David Cameron's favourite commentator Dan Hodges, who predicted a 90-seat majority for the Tories on Wednesday, thinks Theresa May will leave office very soon. He now says

"The prospect of stopping Brexit ended Thursday night. The prospect of a hard-Brexit ended Thursday night."
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard in this interesting article in today's Daily Telegraph, and some others on the right think so too and welcome the Norwegian Option (pro tem). 

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard quotes David Owen as saying that Article 50 is designed as a deterrent to stop any country leaving.
“We should use the EEA as a vehicle to lengthen the transition time. Theresa May’s massive mistake has been to allow talk of a hard Brexit to run and run, and to refuse to frame a deal in a way that makes sense for the Europeans. The logic of the EEA is irrefutable.”

    I am not this was not done on purpose, but your above list of earlier failed PM’s is exclusively made up of Old Etonians!
