Trade secretary Liam Fox thinks he can get away with negotiating post-Brexit trade deals behind closed doors. This flies in the face of democracy.
We know that Fox's department has been meeting with as many countries as he can in secret trade ‘working groups’, from the US Trump administration to the Saudi Arabian dictatorship.
Time and again we’ve made Freedom of Information requests to find out more about what Liam Fox is planning. And all we’ve got back is blacked out notes from his meetings. It’s deeply dodgy.
The trade deals Liam Fox wants could entrench privatisation within the NHS, block action on climate change and slash food standards. We have a right to know what’s ahead and have a say.
We want to take Liam Fox to court to ensure that the details of his secret trade meetings with other countries are made public for the first time.
Taking Liam Fox to court will cost around £5,000, and we need your help to cover this. A donation could help pay for barrister fees, expert witnesses and raising awareness about the court case.
