"As I recall, it was the UK who insisted that that particular bit of regulation was included."

Yup.

At the absolute insistence of the USA

Who wanted to ensure China was locked out of Galilleo

Against the objections of every other member.

So when Britain announced it was leaving, there was ZERO thought of changing the rules so the UK could stay.

You know that saying about being careful what you wish for?

(this isn't the only example of the UK forcing rules on the rest of the EU which are now being used against it as it's leaving, whilst the rest of the EU smirks and says "sorry, we can't change the rules")
