Brexit - deal or no deal

One of my major frustrations when it comes to politics are the ambiguous statements - where both sides are arguing over different interpretations.  It feels so unnecessary - I wish we could make an effort to be a bit more specific, so that we can focus on where we actually disagree.  

For example:

Everyone seems convinced they know what it means - but they don't agree.  Here are a few interpretations that I’ve heard people make:
So next time you’re going to argue over whether no Brexit deal is better than a bad Brexit deal, please make clear which one you mean.  And if you’re going to disagree with someone, it might be worth checking that they actually mean something you disagree with.
