One of the reasons as to why I’m against the TTIP deal, is that according to reports, major important sections of the already enormous trade treaty, is written in invisible ink, with tinkering allowed further down the road by faceless bureaucrats totally unaccountable to the people.
There’s no way to claw back any liberty once the treaty is signed in real) ink, we are left to the mercies of our overlords. Here’s yet a clear cut example of why it’s not to be trusted, because our political leaders are frauds, and the parties that they hail from.
EXPOSED: US plot to add Turkey to hated EU trade deal AFTER it is signed off by Brussels
EXCLUSIVE: TURKEY is set to be bolted on to a controversial EU-US trade deal after it has been signed off by European countries if Hillary Clinton wins the White House, Express.co.uk can reveal today.
Leaked e-mails from the inbox of her campaign chairman reveal how the Democrat candidate could try to sidestep EU parliaments by bringing Ankara in on the controversial pact.
In the unverified material, America’s former ambassador to Brussels reveals how Recep Tayyip Erdogan is “upset” at not being included in negotiations on the free trade deal, and suggests ways to keep him on side.
They include retrospectively adding Turkey to the agreement and manipulating the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to pump even more money into the country’s economy.
Such a move would give Ankara unprecedented access and influence on both US and European markets, despite severe concerns over the future direction of Mr Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian government.
The shock revelations are bound to cause fury in capital cities across Europe, coming at a time when Turkey’s proposed membership of the bloc seems further away than ever due to an ongoing purge of moderates.
They come as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is teetering on the brink of collapse, with politicians on both sides of the Atlantic increasingly turning their backs on it.
