Ofcourse it's perfectly valid to like ot dislike the details of TTIP. What is not valid is the Eu trying to keep the details of the agreement hidden from the public. There is a conspiracy of silence. If the Eu is acting in the best interests of it citizens, why the secrecy? Any entity which rejects transparency in favour of secrecy is not to be trusted. No one is 'hijacking' the issue, it's a valid concern. TTIP is more than a 'policy', it is a thread to democracy. One of the main aims of TTIP is the introduction of Investor-State Dispute Settlements (ISDS), which allow companies to sue governments if those governments’ policies cause a loss of profits. In effect it means unelected transnational corporations can dictate the policies of democratically elected governments. I would vote against TTIP if I could, but like you I can't. We DO NOT have a say because the Eu is doing it all in secret. TTIP should be debated in Parliament as a matter of urgency.
