Re: This is an EU matter

Individual governments are losing the ability to control the large corporates; it needs something the size of the EU to do it - the USA will not since ''they have the best politicians that money can buy''. Which, of course, is why the US government and the best politicians money can buy (on both sides of the Pond) are so concerned to see that TTIP passes, so that the responsibility for regulating businesses is removed from governments which might just possibly be responsive to the desires of the governed and placed in the hands of a panel of international corporate lawyers....
