Default EU: Weak on Putin, absent in Syria, can’t do trade deals

Do not underestimate the Walloons. The No vote by the francophone region of southern Belgium to the EU-Canada trade agreement is neither a cry for help nor an effort in rent extraction. They simply do not want it. A combination of EU voting rules and the Belgian constitution allows this rather small European province to cast an effective veto. I applaud them.
