    As we chart a path through the chaotic aftermath of the EU referendum vote, we'd like to hear your views on the likely impacts on ethical consumption and the direction we should be taking as a consumer movement.

    You'll also be able to debate the issue face to face at our conference later this year.
    Find out more on our conference page:
    www.ethicalconsumer.org/home/ethicalconsumerconference2016.aspx

    We have published our response to the referendum result here:

    Brexit has caused much uncertainty. What happens to the campaign against TTIP? Is this trade deal no longer a threat to the UK or will it still have an impact on our trade?

    It is hard to guess at the moment, particularly when it seems no-one has a clue what's going on.

    Absolute disaster. I am very worried about the impact this will have on animal welfare. I will be interested to hear your views on this at the conference.

    Lets hope we will have some more clarity by September!

    There is an upside at least regarding patent trolling:

    Another possible upside is that peopel across the EU may value their vote more and be more critical of their leadership and of the EU excesses. I am referring to Juncker the architect of the Luxembourg fiddle of corporate tax to the detriment of neighbouring EU countries.

    That there will be a better EU again within 50 years I have no doubt. Unfortunately the EU's current call for its own army continue to be a concern.
