campaign by 38 degrees to pressure our MEP’s to ignore Company Lobbyists

I sent this letter to the Daily Expess, after 38 degrees requested I sent similar to local papers.

The EU wishes to sign a trade agreement with the USA, which will allow U.S. Companies to sue any Government which passes legislation, preventing them from maximising their profits.
Typically, concern is in US Health Care companies etc. cherry picking bits of the NHS, now in the process of being privatised, and not having to take on unprofitable bits.
I’m writing on behalf of a campaign by 38 degrees to pressure our MEP’s to ignore Company Lobbyists and EU political pressure and vote down the worst parts of this treaty change.
The EU have already postponed the vote, for fear that MEP’s would not vote as they wished.
We need to keep the pressure up, so that We don’t get signed up, before Cameron has the referendum on EU membership, which would allow us to opt out of this iniquitous treaty.
I would urge any one concerned about the NHS future to log on to 38degree (https://secure.38degrees.org.uk/page/content/ttip-contact-mep) and sign up to this campaign.
