BRUSSELS politicians voted to pass a landmark trade deal between Canada and the EU this afternoon following a fractious debate between MEPs and mass protests outside the parliament building in Strasbourg.
French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen launched a blistering attack on the proposed deal today, saying it would further enrich the powerful at the expense of working families.
She raged: “The CETA agreement was carefully hidden from citizens because none of you can justify it. You voted on it in private because debating in public, that’s something you hate.
“When citizens understand all of this they will never trust you again. That is why this is a terrible agreement. It will undermine thousands of jobs in Europe.”
To loud applause she blasted: “Are you not ashamed? You’re giving away our rights to legislate and you’re robbing our citizens of the protection of their rights that they expect from their representatives.
“You’re making it possible for multinationals to attack member states so you make sure no new legislation will displease them.
