    so far we've published two features on TTIP and aim to continuing campaigning on the issue over the coming year.

    If you know of any resources that you think would be useful to us (and the wider campaign) please post them on this topic thread.

    The other day I came across this statement by Sir Michael Rake, in BT Group's Annual Report 2014

    "We have therefore worked with the European Commission to genuinely complete the digital single market, and with the US Federal Communications Commission on improved access to the US market. We are encouraged by progress over the last year in the EU-US TTIP trade talks which should deepen transatlantic economic integration and reduce non-tariff barriers. We will continue to lobby actively on these important issues and hope to see further progress in the year ahead."

    Yes they are really hot on getting this through.

    they are also speaking at this event

    http://babinc.org/events/788

    along with someone from UPS - who probably want to get a stronger hold in the postal market now Royal Mail has been privatised and ensure that the state can't regain its monopoly in any way.
