Wither Wallonia

Something is rotten in Belgium, and it due to Wallonia. The Seussian-sounding Walloon Parliament, which represents the small region of Wallonia in Southern Belgium, is blocking a European continent-wide free trade deal with Canada. 

 It's not a story that is going to get a huge amount of attention, but it is an important one because it is in the continued vein of Brexit and the Colombian peace process referendum in that benefits of the many are being hijacked by the special interests of the disgruntled.
