The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is a series of trade negotiations being carried out mostly in secret between the EU and US. As a bi-lateral trade agreement, TTIP is about reducing the regulatory barriers to trade for big business, things like food safety law, environmental legislation, banking regulations and the sovereign powers of individual nations. It is, as John Hilary, Executive Director of campaign group War on Want, said: “An assault on European and US societies by transnational corporations.”

Immigration and the EU is what's on the mind of the average short-sighted English voter. It's all we hear about. For that reason, I can see him being voted in, mistake or not. The only good to come from this, I believe, is further proof that our political system is being played from all sides by the same shadow group. As per the norm.
A thankfully insightful comment, unfortunately the average joe cannot see past their noses
