What is TTIP?




I have created a link to the TTIP page on the 'War on Want' website. It is in the Greenpeace post immediately below. Look under the official police photograph of the writer Franz Kafka.

Thank you Greenpeace



Today with the release of the Greenpeace papers the cat is out of the bag. 

What we already knew about the talks now in their 13th round was nothing except that we the people who would be affected were not to be told anything. 

Why? 

 Because 

"the European Commission slapped a 30-year ban on public access to the TTIP negotiating texts at the beginning of talks in 2013 . . . "

But now 

"the door has been flung open . . ."  and as a result 

"EU negotiators will never be able to crawl back into the shadows . . ." 


   A Fanciful Castle
    
  See how this plenum 
This opulent corner 
Of European EU-nity 
Engaged in sub rosa talks 
Was exposed to the light 

  Closed doors were flung open 
To let the light in
To fortress EU -
A fanciful castle 
Haunted by Kafka.

The Frogs



The boys have their teachers to educate them. The adults on the other hand have their poets.
