Ahead of a the House of Commons debate on the controversial TTIP trade deal, Molly wrote about the threats posed by this US-EU deal, especially to food and farming. But she argues that if we leave the European Union, the trade deals that Tory ministers would sign up to would be far worse.

Key quote:

“Some have argued that TTIP is a good example of all that is bad about the EU and is reason enough to support Brexit. But Cameron has been a cheer-leader for TTIP since its inception. The Tories would gladly create alternative trade deals with the US and others if we left the EU.”
