WHY OBAMA WANTS UK IN EUROPE.
Everybody needs to know the details, such as they are, regarding TTIP…any trade deal that requires the negotiating details to be kept in a vault for 30 years, with only the EU committee responsible for TTIP able to view them, is no trade deal that benefits any EU member state. For all those in the remain camp, they need to be aware that the most isolating move the UK could make, is to Remain in the EU. TTIP is a deal between a country (US) and a union of countries (EU), and once signed, no individual member country can change details of TTIP to suit their own national interests.
The EU, with all of it’s faults, has managed over the years to positively regulate in areas that benefit the consumer, which is why we don’t eat beef that is riddled with growth hormones, why GMO’s are prohibited, the use of certain pesticides prohibited, but this is slowly being reversed as the drip drip of TTIP finds it’s way into the EU…once the deal is signed, EU regulation goes out of the window, as do our consumer choices and rights.
Our present government expect to stay within the EU. This is why the Investigatory Powers Bill is being pushed through…digital data from the activities of UK citizens to be shared with the US’s NSA…why? The Trade Unions Bill, limiting funding of Unions, increasing police powers on picket lines to, essentially, intimidate those who strike. The British Bill of Rights to replace the Human Rights Act. Apparently, to stop those pesky terrorists from being deported, or to stop the prosecution of UK troops who may have abused the human rights of citizens whilst serving abroad…really? No, the Bill is aimed at stopping ordinary citizens from having the ability to hold their governments to account in either human rights cases or employment issues…the Bill effectively stops workers having a voice, as per TTIP demands. It’s prevention in the face of ISDS (Investor State Dispute Settlement)…if a member state introduces public policy which may harm the profits of a corporation operating within that country, under ISDS rules, that corporation can sue the government, not through domestic courts, with tenured judges, but in secret tribunals. Our government are one step ahead, or maybe two or three.
A vote to Remain in the EU is a vote in favour of TTIP, it’s a vote in favour of, by the admission of the European Commission, prolonged and substantial job losses. Why would a multinational corporation hire European workers who have established labour rights and regulated wages, when they can choose states in the US whose workers have neither? The UK has no special status within the EU…the whole point of TTIP is to ensure that no member state has special status…we will be part of a bloc, our needs no more important, we will be a nation of 500 million.
THE ONE REASON WE SHOULD SAY STUFF THE USA & EXIT EUROPE
