22 April 2010: Number 1

The Belgian Government has broken apart again. The coalition government set up after the previous debacle was left with one less member which led to the prime minister tendering his resignation to the King. I'm sorry, but all of this seems a bit stupid. In the past five or six years I've been living in this country, there's been... what? A government for 40% of the time? The rest of the time they are bickering and breaking apart. If the King was half useful, we should just go to a Monarchy. Probably solves a bit of problems. Let the Man appoint his staff and let it be.

And in a few months, Belgium is supposed to take up the European Union Presidency. So... a non-government taking control of an incompetent and broken political institution that has not brought about anything useful since it was formed. I heard something funny about this today. A colleague at work, who is Belgian, said: "we're a non-country." This reminds me of a comment from a certain politician from the UKIP party who launched into a tirade against the incumbent European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy. I recall everyone up in arms with that comment and his direct attack at Herman. Well, he was right, wasn't he?

Useless... all of them fat arses taking tax payers money. FORTY-FIVE PERCENT! AND THEY CAN'T RUN A COUNTRY!
