Again, why would we want to? Yes you get access to the single market, BUT also have to put up with the Free Movement. That isn't what Britons voted for. The UK will have to make its own agreement or do without.
"That isn't what Britons voted for." That is the key issue. Britons voted to leave the EU but what was implied by that vote? There is no common view! Stop free movement might be what you voted for but who promised to you to stop free movement?

Quotes after the vote;
"leading Tory Eurosceptic MEP Daniel Hannan told BBC Newsnight that the leave campaign had never promised to cut immigration numbers and that the “free movement of workers to and from the UK should continue to ensure Britain remained within the single market”.
Boris Johnson also supported "free movement of workers" in his Telegraph article on 26th June.

and Boris is leading the Brexit negotiation so do not expect to see the end of free movement
