Sheffield and EU US Trade and investment Agreement

I spoke to a remarkable man in Sheffield Hallam constituency recently.  He is a Quaker and former Lib Dem and joined the Green Party because he liked our catchphrase better.  The Lib Dems was "Stronger economy, fairer society." but he preferred to reverse it into "stronger society, fairer economy."  I also spoke to a lecturer at the former polytechnic there who has campaigned for sustainability for the last 12 years or so.  She just wishes the government would stop trying to get through the TTIP, a secretly-negotiated EU-US trade and investment agreement, and will be out leafleting in Sheffield city centre today as part of the Europe Wide day of action.
