To make it clearer for the hard of thinking

Rubbish.

There is membership of the EEA or not (the Norway solution)......................................... ......SOFT BREXIT
There is membership of the single market or not (the Switzerland solution)
There are forms of preferred trading partner or not (the Turkey solution)
There are other forms of free or preferential trade solutons
There are WTO rules .................................................. .................................................. .HARD BREXIT
I'll let Jacob Rees-Mogg make it clear for the hard of accepting:

“You are either in the European Union or you leave it. This is not only my view, this is the view of Donald Tusk, one of the Presidents of the European Union, who said: “there is no such thing as hard and soft Brexit, there is being in the European Union or out.” If we are out of the European Union, we cannot have our laws by the European Court of Justice, we cannot have all our regulations set by being in the internal market and we can’t lose all our trading opportunities by being in the customs union. And this was clear at the election. I brought a quotation in case this came up, from Wolfgang Schäuble, a very senior German politician. He let the cat out of the bag after the referendum because he said he’d been asked to say this by one George Osborne, the then Chancellor. And he said: “If the majority in Britain opt for Brexit that would be a decision against the single market”. In is in, out is out. We knew what we were voting for, we voted and democracy must deliver.”
