THE TRANSATLANTIC TRADE and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal is back in the spotlight.

Attention again turned to the agreement after a Greenpeace leak earlier in the week, and a video posted by MEP Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan showing his difficulty in accessing documents about the deal was widely shared.

Multinationals and business lobby groups have been heavily in favour of TTIP, saying it will streamline business between the world’s two largest economies.

However, many governments and other organisations are sceptical that it could open up public services such as healthcare, education and transport to privatisation.

We want to know: Are you worried about TTIP?

Poll Results:

Yes (9172)
I don't know enough about it (3589)
No (1387)
I'm not sure (340)
