Blog: Brexit LIVE: ‘Odd and wrong’ Brussels holds UK ‘to higher standard than communist China’ – Express

A report by the influential Lords European affairs committee found that Brussels’ decision to lock the City of London out of the square mile was “political rather than technical”. The EU refused to grant the UK regulatory “equivalence” which allows countries not in the bloc to access the single market based on how similar its rules are, despite Britain’s rules being largely equivalent to its own.However, communist China has been granted equivalence. Lord Kinnoul, chairman of the committee, said: “China has been granted equivalence by the EU in a dozen or more areas. It looks odd and wrong that the UK has not been granted this considering we are democracies of a similar character.”
