Theresa May today laid out five tests to apply to any future EU Brexit deal to decide whether it is right for the UK.

There are three broad options for that relationship:

  1. Soft Brexit: The UK leaves the EU but keeps many of the bloc's rules, allowing it to continue a close trade relationship with the 27 remaining member countries. The UK does not have a say in deciding how those rules evolve

  2. Hard Brexit: The UK leaves the EU and replaces its rules, allowing Britain to forge trade agreements with other countries and choose its own laws but placing barriers to trade with Europe.

  3. Stay in the EU: The UK changes its mind and decides to stay in the EU.

If you apply Theresa May's test's to these scenarios, which one comes out on top? Find out using our poll below.
