Wallonia, that submerged country, has vetoed the trade agreement between the EU and Canada.
The Canadian Trade Minister, a lady, was in tears and said
"It is now evident to me, evident to Canada, that the European Union is incapable of reaching an agreement even with a country with European values such as Canada, even with a country as nice and as patient as Canada. Canada is disappointed. I am personally very disappointed. I worked very, very hard."The UK may have to forget a deal with the EU and that might be no bad thing.
