BRUSSELS today admitted it cannot force member states to adopt its landmark trade pact with Canada as the tiny Belgian region of Wallonia threatened to try and scupper the deal for a second time.

Eurocrats conceded they “can’t interfere” and attempt to railroad through CETA, which still faces an uncertain future despite being approved by MEPs following a fractious vote in the Strasbourg parliament yesterday.

Europe’s elite reacted with relief yesterday as they squeezed through the pact despite intense opposition from politicians across the continent who fear it will hand big US corporations too much power.

And today Canadian PM Justin Trudeau travelled to France for a mutual love-in at the European Parliament, where he praised the EU as a “truly remarkable achievement”.

But their collective bubble was immediately burst by Wallonia’s firebrand leader, Paul Magnette, who vowed to block its complete implementation unless the rest of Europe meets his demands.
