A wry thought on Belgium

A comment from an American friend,
"I went to the Unity for BE party with Quarsan. I was dressed in the colours of the BE flag and had a flag thrown over my shoulder. On the way back to Schuman he quipped “I wonder how many people in Schuman will ask you if you are German?”

Answer: Within a block, 3."

Says it all really, but there again so does the fact that there is an online petition site calling for Belgian unity with stickers and posters uyp all over Brussels, the glory of it is that all the slogans are in English as they wouldn't dare put them in either of the big national languages.
