Quote of the day

"What I am able to reveal from my visit to the library is that I left without any sense of reassurance either that the process of negotiating this trade deal is democratic, or that the negotiators are operating on behalf of citizens. The whole process, from the implicit accusation of industrial espionage, to the recognition about who is actually engaged in the negotiations, makes it clear that this is a corporate discussion, not a democratic one."

Green Party MEP Molly Scott Cato may not be at liberty to divulge the specifics of top secret documents about the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal, but she's unequivocal about whose interests it will (and won't) be in.
