If ever you thought TTIP wasn’t that bad really….

I’ve written on this before. And I don’t want to become boring on this subject. But today I came across an article in the Huffington Post from a Canadian perspective which I think is worth sharing.

Remember: the EU is also doing a deal with Canada which also has the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism embedded in it.

Canada has experience of ISDS. So this isn’t scare-mongering. This is just reporting facts.

So here’s the deal: read this, and write to your elected representatives to tell them you don’t want any part in this; not in CETA (the EU Canada deal) or TTIP (the EU US deal).

Each of the Member States of the EU has to ratify these deals for them to become reality; so does the European Parliament. If any one Member State or the European Parliament says no, it’s no.

Your MP can do something about this; so can your MEPs. Write to them. Don’t let them allow us to sleepwalk into this. When it’s too late, it’s too late forever!
