So TTIP Won’t Stop Public Services Being Run in the Interests of Ordinary People? Tell That to Argentina

Another week, another victory for big business over a government in a secret pseudo-court. This time it’s the turn of private water giant Suez, who successfully sued Argentina for reversing the privatisation of Buenos Aires's water supply.

I think that Argentina will be fine; they know exactly what to do. Now if that "treaty" goes into effect in the wimpy wimpy wimpy usa, we'd have something to worry about.

At least Argentina's government puts people above profit, something we can't expect our own government to do. Especially as the Republicans can be trusted to put profit above people,,,
