Britan wants to have the best possible trade deal with the EU but will not trade away its sovereignty, senior British minister Michael Gove told parliament on Thursday, per Reuters.

“We will not accept any obligations where our laws are aligned with the EU,” Gove added. “We will not link access to our fishing waters to access to the EU markets. Proximity is not a reason for us to accept the EU rules and regulations.”
