France even went so far as to call the EU chiefs hoping to push through the massive agreement with Canada “hallucinatory”.
Bureaucrats had hoped to act as a tacit EU superstate, rubber stamping the plan on behalf of members and even nations beyond the EU borders.

The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada will now be subject to all national parliaments’ ratification after all.
The pressure came from countries across Europe but was spear headed by the French and German governments.
