Leave just means leave, eh? You keep forgetting (you've been reminded before):

This is what the leave campaign said at the time, straight from the horses mouths:

Boris Johnson said we'd stay in the single-market: https://www.businessinsider.com/boris-johnson-single-market-brexit-campaign-customs-union-2018-1?r=US&IR=T

As did Farage, and MANY others: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xGt3QmRSZY

As did MEP Dan Hannan: "Nobody is talking about threatening our place in the single market": https://www.voteleavewatch.org.uk/leaving_the_single_market_is_not_an_option

Andrea Leadsom said we will have the same access to the single market http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noK4OJOjmVk

Gerard Batten (UKIP leader) "A trade deal with the EU could be sorted out in an afternoon over a cup of coffee"

Boris Johnson: "There is no plan for no deal because we are going to get a great deal"

And Liam Fox promised that the 40 trade deals we'd lose access to after leaving the EU will all be replicated or improved on immediately after Britain leaves. How many of the 40 has he improved on..... **ZERO** Well, OK, how many has he replicated? **A BIG FAT ZERO** (Update: 22nd July 2019: 12 deals have been made - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47213842)

Liam Fox: "The free trade agreement that we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history"

John Redwood and Rees-Mogg said a second referendum would be a good idea once a deal has been finalised: https://infacts.org/rees-mogg-history-backing-second-eu-referendums/

Dominic Raab: I hadn't quite understood the full extent of this but... we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing"
