The implosion of the Chocolate eaters

Another European country is committing suicide.

Belgium is the quintessential EU supranational state: something like the EU in miniature even before there ever was an EU. And it suffers many of the same problems in microcosm. Though some have said this was crazy hyperbole, I've genuinely been expecting the imminent breakup of Belgium ever since spending a few months in Brussels in 1997, and this may well be the straw that breaks the camel's back, or at least pushes things along MUCH father than ever before.

From the Vlaams Blok website:

"We will establish a new party. This one Belgium will not be able to bury; it will bury Belgium."

Long live a free Flanders.
