TTIP plus? July 13, 2016

This is disturbing, a report in the Guardian that suggests that TTIP style agreements may be given renewed impetus by Brexit, and in particular the small fact that:

Britain doesn’t have the trade officials to take forward this agenda – having only 20 trade negotiators compared with the EU’s 600. Not a problem – the government is reported to be considering paying top dollar to financial sector consultants such as PwC, Deloitte and KPMG to do it for us. The ultimate “contracting out”, the privatisation of government decisions. The result is unlikely to be anything that resembles the British people “taking back control” of their country.
