There is, then, to be a hard Brexit. Any pretence to the contrary has gone.
It is exceptionally difficult to understand Javid. What he is saying is that although the world is now very obviously dominated by just three markets, with the standards of at least one of which business has no choice but comply if it is to compete on an international stage, the UK is to go it alone with its own standards which will not comply with those of any of these markets.
So, British standards will be different. That means that any foreigner wanting to sell here must abide by British standards. Which most won’t bother with because a tiny market. Which means that most foreign competition will now be removed from the British market as it doesn’t meet our standards.
Snippa complains about this presumably?
