Merry Christmas...Belgium has a new Government!

For now that a few months we'll be right back where we started.
Belgium proves that we really don’t need government. It’s been six months since an inconclusive election, and only now have they finally cobbled together a government of sorts, but only an “interim” administration to be followed by another “interim” administration.

Nothing suggests that the two sides are ready to agree. Nothing suggests that Leterme – who has shown himself brutally insensitive to the concerns of the Francophone 40 per cent of the country – is the right man to lead Belgium towards a more trusting relationship between Flemings and Walloons.
Although I don't know if their is a "politician" alive who can do that.
