    The secretly negotiated trade treaty between the EU and the United States that was set to; 'liberalise' our healthcare system, give private corporations the right to sue our governments for any action that harmed their profits, lower our food standards to that of America and for my fiscal conservatives friends out there, further regulate the financial sector is indefinitely off the table for the United Kingdom. And as Mr Obama said, we are at the back of the queue.

    Our government was one of the biggest supporters of TTIP, while the EU was trying to negotiate amendments to protect things like public services, and some countries were blocking it until those amendments were made. We'll be joining TTIP, we just won't have the negotiating power to make it work for us.

    I very much doubt we'll see a trade deal with America negotiated within the next parliament. And if presented to parliament I suspect that enough Tories will rebel against it. That said I don't trust the Tory leadership on the issue.

    Why? You've taken power from the people trying to protect us from TTIP and given it to the biggest supporters of it...

    Also, we never didn't have our democracy. We made up 10% of EU Parliament, but we acted like petty kids throwing a tantrum, electing MPs like Nigel Farage that didn't bother turning up to vote.
