And the winner is …

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Belgians today awoke to their 150th day without a government.

The Christian Democrats and Liberals have so far been unable to get their acts together and form a coalition leaving Belgium without a government.  The job of governing the country is being taken care of by the outgoing government.

Belgium is the model on which Federal Europe is based – a multi-national, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-linguistic unholy union of people who don’t even like each other, let alone want to be stuck in a union.  The longer Belgium stays in this state, the more obvious it becomes that the EU model is fatally flawed.  The federal state that eurofederalists like the One Eyed Wonder of Wankistan and David Camoron want will flounder very early in its life and end up fractured along racial, religious and lingustic lines, just like Belgium is now.

The good news is that the EU not-a-constitution is due to be signed in December and it looks increasingly likely that Belgium won’t have a government to ratify the treaty as the incumbent rump government doesn’t have the authority to deal with matters of that importance.  This, coupled with a likely referendum in Denmark, could be another significant nail in the EU not-a-constitution’s coffin.

The Brussels Journal has some bits and pieces on Belgium’s farcial inability to govern itself.
