Many supposedly astute commentators have opined that the election result indicates a wish by the great British public to water down the concept of a "hard Brexit".  My perhaps simplistic thinking processes tell me this interpretation is stretching logical thinking.  To ascribe a national determination on a nuanced topic such as Brexit to such a generalised process as voting in a national election seems sheer tosh. Nevertheless  although we have given notice of our leaving one way or t`other in two years it seems the current government is determined to play by the rules and obey every directive from Brussels until day zero.  Latest examples of this obedience are  orders on the gathering of information from technology companies. Two reports offer opinions. My general point is that with a proposed  Great Repeal Bill in the offing it seems beyond reason to incorporate any more EU directives in our law.
