The Brief: Fifty shades of Justin Trudeau

Did you smell that sickly sweet aroma in the air in Brussels today? It was the waves of smug rolling in all the way from the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

MEPs were getting their reward for the nodding through of the EU-Canada trade CETA – five minutes of one on 751 face time with Justin Trudeau.

What a gushing lovefest it was. So cloying and sweet I got diabetes watching it. Five minutes of saccharine wooing from the floppy-haired studmuffin, standing there like a Canadian Christian Grey.
