Of course, the nonsense of this argument is falling on stony ground. So predictable.
One only has to ask whether the EU would let us have the same proportion of access to French fishing grounds. Or if we demanded that in order to trade with the U.K. without tariffs, that they accept all U.K. laws and British jurisdiction.
This just shows the utter ridiculousness of the EU’s position. We are not asking anymore than what they’ve already offered Canada. And we are not making any demands of the EU that could possibly be construed as unreasonable.
We are an independent country now and the EU continues to want us shackled tightly to them.
Of course you must follow their regulations.
Otherwise you could import poison american GMO food, which is banned in the EU and then ship it via free trade into the EU.
