But the Leavers' imaginary deal is a deal without any foundation in economic reality and contains no details. In fact the absence of detail of what Britain hopes to get/realistically can get underpins the idea that there never was a single vision of life outside the EU which is perhaps why Leave voters frequently express different ideas of what the deal will/should look like.
However these negotiations will affect the lives of our children for generations to come and therefore it's only right that the details are commented on as they start to emerge.
It's not moaning.
It is filling in the gaps and providing an insight into our potential future outside the EU - because there are a lot of gaps given that they voted for this without really understanding what they have let themselves - and sadly the rest of us - in for.
And it's clear that a) the Government/negotiators are starting to realise the enormity of Brexit and b) the details are going to emerge over a very long time. Only today, Hammond has accepted that we won't be able to sign a deal with Europe until after 2022!
What did he think was going to happen?
That they'd roll over and agree to all our demands within months?
That follows on from their desperate bid to assuage the people by claiming yesterday that freedom of movement would end in 2019.
So in the same spirit of "why show your cards ahead of a negotiation" which has been trotted out regularly to justify the Government failing to provide a proper Brexit exit strategy, surely announcing that before negotiations are concluded is a bit of a faux pas even though it should prevent the natives from getting too restless too early. I guess they see it as a "quick win".
Nobody wants a good deal for Britain more than I do but I think it's important that the details are reported on and discussed as they emerge - regardless of how uncomfortable that may make some people feel, because this is our future as a nation at stake.
