Key quote:

“If Wallonia is placated, or arm-twisted, Belgium will sign up to CETA. Significant lobbying of socialist MEPs is likely to be the only way to stop it. The challenge for Corbyn and the Labour Party is to show courage in resisting corporate power and stand alongside their Belgian comrades fighting for workers’ rights. Labour has a chance to show what taking back control really means. Whether they will seize this opportunity will depend on how much pressure they come under from their own members and the wider public.”
