Re: TTIP IS A VERY BAD IDEA
Very well put, to add balance I will let David Cameron have his chance to reply!
Speaking at the G20 in Brisbane David Cameron said claims that TTIP would result in a National Health Service sell-off were “bogus nonsense.”
Signalling his intention to take on Britain’s trade unionists and others who oppose TTIP, the prime minister told G20 delegates he intends to fire “rocket boosters” under the EU-US trade agreement – a landmark deal he stresses that could bolster the British economy by £10 billion.
“It is time to take on some of the opponents of this deal and expose the arguments against it,” he said. “This is good for Britain – good for growth and British families.”
Speaking to crowds gathered at the summit, Cameron said arguments posed by UK trade unionists and campaigners against the trade deal were “weak.”
Regarding a potential NHS sell-off, the prime minister emphasized the health service was “in the public sector” and would remain so. “There is no direct threat to the NHS from TTIP,” he insisted.
Considering what happened after Tory manifesto stated there would be no reorganisation of the NHS and David Cameron's point blank refusal to remove the NHS from TTIP negotiations, I think we should be afraid, very afraid.
Interpreting the potential threat that the TTIP can have is one thing, the point is to change it. What can you do then, first offcan I request that you visit https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/index.php/pages/486/ or just Google “38 Degrees TTIP” if you do not like clicking any old link!
