Re: So predictable !

"The UK will essentially become like the US. A corporation's wet dream with few or no controls on the rights of the individual."

The UK government already tried to force that on us, by signing up for the trans-atlantic trade partnership agreement with the US, which would have given corporations the power to sue government.

We got lucky that a couple of the other countries in Europe blocked it.

I'm guessing this is in part why so many of the Tories are so determined now to split the UK out of Europe so that they can head us back down that road. Notice that the emphasis for Brexit is all about trade - all of them are deliberately ignoring the destruction of the countless rights, agreements, treaties, subscriptions, memberships etc which we enjoy under EU membership.

I don't agree with a lot that George Monbiot says, but his article on this subject is chilling: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/04/us-trade-deal-full-frontal-assault-on-democracy
