Oh lordy I really ought to mention that I have been flattered by an invitation to contribute to what looks to be a key groupblog de jour. The Brussels Journal has been set up as a Anglo/Dutch enterprise. Mostly produced by Flemish writers like Paul Belien, author of the recent book A Throne in Brussels, Luc Van Braekel, a leading Flemish blogger, it alos has as authors Dan Hannan MEP, Tory eurosceptic European Parliamentarian - amd leading light of Direct Democracy, Professor Norman Barry and Carlo Stagnaro, young Italian Economist and head of the Institute Bruno Leoni amonst others.
My own weak offering is about moustaches in Flanders. See why I am flattered?
