TTIP must never be signed. Any legislation that relies upon secrete courts is totally undemocratic. Every action must be able to be scrutinised by the electorate. The only possible excuse for secrecy would be national security never trade deals or the management of trade deals. There can be no way that it is acceptable for a corporate body to sue a national government in secret. No way can this agreement be signed without the authority of the electorate. It is as important as membership of the EU. So a referendum will be necessary to ensure that democratic responsibility is preserved
