Belgian government resigns again

! 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.

The Belgian government has resigned yet again.

Prime Minister Yves Leterme tendered his government’s resignation in June, just 3 months after forming a government, after failing to get an enhanced devolution deal approved by parliament.  On that occassion, the King refused to accept the resignation and told Leterme to sort himself out.

This time, however, the King has accepted Leterme’s resignation for its part in the controversial privatisation and impending sell-off of the Belgian arm of the Benelux bank, Fortis.

Belgium is broken beyond repair, anything other than the break-up of the union is just a sticking plaster.

    It could be interesting, if belgium breaks up, into its constituent parts, it might might give us a set of guide lines of how to proceed.

    However with the UK, i think ‘break up’ is the wrong phrase, ‘England getting rid of troublesome counties’ might be a better way to see it?

    Imagine, the price that Eales has to pay for independence is taking Liverpool off your hands! 😀

    t about ‘Minority wars@ as a new TV show, first up would be the homos versus the papes, could be interesting, then maybe something like the Jocks versus the cripples, could it be a new TV sensation?
