Jean Lambert London's Green MEP

Green MEP sets out opposition to austerity – and secretive trade deal with US

EU parliament building

London’s Green MEP Jean Lambert has set out her opposition to austerity measures – and a trade deal between the EU and the US that could spell the end of the NHS – in a wide-ranging interview for OpenDemocracy.

 

She said austerity had been ‘a blunt instrument applied with no thought to the social consequences’, and said the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) would encourage privatisation in the NHS and make Government regulation harder in areas like food safety and environmental protection.
