Francois Hollande is right and David Cameron is wrong. Unregulated free trade will drive standards down and costs up.

Besides, David Cameron has been appallingly bad for the population of the UK – why should we believe anything he tells us?

… Unless he’s not referring to “the British people” but just to “British people” – people like himself and the owners of multinational companies who stand to benefit from free trade, perhaps?

This whole story suggests he’s trying to get this nasty TTIP agreement signed before the electoral fraud inquiries conclude and he loses the Parliamentary majority he needs to get it ratified.

David Cameron has said a trade deal between the EU and US is not dead despite France threatening to veto the proposal in its current form.

The prime minister said it would take “political courage to get it over the line” but the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would be good for British people.

He insisted TTIP was still viable despite François Hollande saying on Tuesday that he would reject it “at this stage” because France was opposed to unregulated free trade.
