The EU (as a big trading block) do free trade agreements which give powers to large companies to take over state assets. I have no idea why Greens rtc are suddenly huge EU fans. TTIP - the US-EU trade was being negotiated in secret until talks were suspended, and they will probably restart negotiations. so if the UK was still in the EU we'd still have a trade deal with the US with things people are complaining about.

I'm not quite sure what you mean - unless you are referring to privatisation, which of course was largely invented here in the UK with the sell off of BT, R-R, energy companies, etc.

Trade negotiations are long-lasting, detailed, and dull to outsiders. As a result, they're rarely in the public eye. But secret? I don't think so.

If anyone thinks the EU will let USA foodstuffs in willy nilly under a trade agreement has never met a French farmer. The rest of the EU agri businesses will be up in arms but the French and German farmers make the Govt. quake in their boots

A MAN was walking along a beach when he spotted a lamp In the sand. He picked it up and gave it a rub. A genie appeared and granted- him a wish. The man said: "I want to live forever." The genie said: "I'm not allowed to grant eternal life." "OK then," the man said, "I want to die when the EU auditors sign off its accounts." The genie replies: "You crafty swine."

If the 'Rebel alliance ' force though their 'Deal-not-no deal' bill
Boris could try an call an election which could end up being the first time ever in history that the opposition will vote in favour of the government :shock:

Wait
There a PM whose LIED :shock:
How old are you exactly Chadwick :?:
The Oppos are claiming BJ act of suspending parliament is 'Undemocratic' because it's stops them overturning the democratic vote
I see John Major involved in this, Didn't he Prorogue parliament because of the 'Cash for question' scandal
Tony Blair also put his 2p in. The only living person to win an election as a Labour leader but even the party think he's toxic
It;s better than a soap opera reality show at the moment
And what will be the outcome?
No one knows
