TTiP is of course an EU initiative

How quiet the left is being over the EU referendum.

Nothing from the Unions.  Not a peep out of lefty activist Owen Jones.  Very sotto voco murmerings from well-known Eurosceptic Labour MPs.

And yet these are all people who get agitated about Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTiP).

TTiP will mean the end of the NHS the left usually shouts.

TTiP is of course an EU initiative.

Leave the EU and we choose ourselves whether we want TTiP, or a watered-down TTiP with special exemptions for the NHS and other sectors.

So one must conclude that the Labour Party and the left generally (I looking at you Owen Jones) would rather abandon the NHS to TTiP rather than campaign against the EU.
