Vote Leave, or Remain and Accept TTIP

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is the culmination of neoliberal policies and anti-democratic processes already seen in the EU. In the trade unions there is large scale opposition to TTIP. There is an understanding that it will bring deregulation, privatisation and the infamous Investor State Disputes Settlements mechanism (ISDS). This gives multinational corporations the ability to sue sovereign governments and overrule their democratic mandates.

Furthermore if a British government in the future attempts to renationalise Health Services it will be forbidden in all but a few circumstances and that compensation must be paid. The act of a democratically elected parliament is open to challenge in the shadowy Investment Court System, set up to police the trade agreement on behalf of big business and resolve investment disputes. Such an Investor State Dispute Settlement was used to force Slovakia to overturn its rules that profit should not be made from Health Insurance. Australia was sued by a tobacco company when it tried to introduce smoking cessation legislation in the form of plain cigarette packets; Australia scrapped the ISDS.

TTIP was drawn up in secrecy by the USA and the EU; a central aim is to finalise the privatisation project, and removes from public hands such areas as the NHS in Britain, the railways in France and the German telecommunications system, as well as public service broadcasting across Europe. The EU will force TTIP on the countries of Europe and of Britain if we do not Leave.

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.

Too many people have died through government inaction, carelessness & slavish adherence to private companies & organisations. Billions have been thrown at private companies, often with Tory party connections, despite repeated failures across the board. https://theworker.org.uk/

Internationalism meant that they shared their information with the world and are participating in an international vaccine programme. Not vaccine nationalism USA style.

The main lessons to be learned from the socialist countries were that they not only acted upon the science but had built and used a strong public sector. They were also able to switch manufacturing to the making of PPE to meet their own needs.
