UK Brexit trade negotiator insists that the UK must be allowed to set its own rules and not abide by EU court judgements.

Quote:
The UK "must have the ability to set laws that suit us," the PM's chief Brexit negotiator has said in a speech in Brussels.

David Frost has set out the UK's stance ahead of post-Brexit trade negotiations, due to start next month.

He dismissed the idea an EU court would have a role in future trade disputes, saying: "We only want what other independent countries have."

Of course the UK can have its own rules and can refuse to be bound by EU court decisions. What it cannot have is that, and a comprehensive tariff-free trade deal.

It's like saying that you want to wear jeans, a t-shirt and trainers. You absolutely have the that right, it's just that you might not also be allowed in the night club (showing my age there - I know )
