Re: Here we go again...

If the public has sight of what the government is doing and disagrees then it's feelings can be made known to their MP. If it's all done in secret then you don't get that option. If enough people say hold up this isn't right then the MP will start to wonder if they will be reelected should the treaty be signed putting pressure on the government to change or abandon it, so no, you don't need a referendum just transparency.

There's a reason for the lack of transparency and that's because the politicians know full well that the people would not agree to what they are proposing in the name of free trade.
