Fleming Walloons


Belgium is on the brink of simply falling apart. News today is that there is an imminent chance of the country splitting into Flemish and French speaking regions and going their own way in the world.

I like this. I don't like big states, I don't like an unelected and unaccountable EU and I prefer power to be in the hands of the governed, rather than the governers.

Great Quote from their now ex-prime minister

all the Belgian people share is their king, national football team and certain beers.
I'll drink to that. It's more than I have in common with the Welsh. Now about an English Parliament....All the best on St Georges Day

Nigel Farage will love that. He will be able to claim it's TWO countries no one's ever heard of.....

Happy St Georges day.

Belgium isn't fucking big, you can walk across it.

Uncle Marvo said...

@Joshua:

Yes, the Germans did.

The Flemish have always hated the Frenchies. They get very offended if you as an Englishman speak to them in French.

England. I'm dreaming again.

ot.holborn..........

did u see the story about the unemployed girl that committed suicide?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1267953/Job-seeker-Vicky-Harrison-commits-suicide-rejected-200-jobs.html

life aint a box of chocolates for so many ........

still feeling smug?

Uncle Marvo said...

@bofl:

re the girl who committed suicide:

I don't normally get involved with these, but I have to say this. Look at what she's got a degree in, and from where.

I am going to sound callous and bigoted here. So maybe I am. I mean no ill-will to the girl's family, but the lunatic who decided that everyone should go to university is in no small part responsible for this. Setting the youngsters up for a big fall.

I'm sorry it had to happen.

Old Holborn said...

I'm with Marvo.

Plenty of failed businessmen commit suicide. Plenty of alcoholics commit suicide. Plenty of simply unhappy people commit suicide.

This is what happens when you assume one size fits all and then legislate for it.

Uncle Marvo said...

Old Holborn's with me? The Lord?

Fuck, I'd start worrying.

E said...

@Uncle Marvin: She didn't finish her degree course, she left after one year because she didn't 'enjoy' it. That doesn't help to make employers feel you are reliable. It might well be the case that the great majority of higher education is intrinsically worthless but, whatever the course is, if you stick at it and get the degree, it shows you have some staying power. Furthermore, keeping young people out of the jobs market for 3 years isn't going to hurt them and it should help older workers to stay off the dole. Well, it would if tyhe immigration rate came down a bit.

Old Holborn said...

Tell you what Bofl, I'll set you up in business. I watched a guy do it and he became a millionaire from this simple little job.

He bought a digital camera for £50 and a photoprinter for £50. Then he bought a box load of these blank keyrings for 13p each

And off he went. To every boot fair, carnival, concert, market. Wherever couples or families were having a day out. He'd take a photo of the happy couple, print off two copies, place in two keyrings and relieve the happy couple of £5. They put them on their car keys or house keys to be romantic and show each other and their mates how much they were in love and within four years, he retired a millionaire. In cash. No income tax, nothing.

Also works with babies, dogs, kids etc.

Off you go.

Uncle Marvo said...

OH - you bastard.

Now EVERYONE will be doing it.

Better not be on my patch.

Old Holborn said...

Not for everyone. You have to get up early or stay out late and er..be nice to people.

He was shifting a thousand a week on average. Out everyday all over the place with his girlfriend completely driven to earn £1 Million. And in four years, he did. He bought a ramshackle cottage 1 hour inland from the Costa Brava for £20K and now spends his days by the pool with a monthly outgoing of around 800 euros all in. He was 31 when he retired.

Belgium? It's not even a real country, it's just a place where real countries used to go to fight wars because it was f*ck all use for anything else!

Dazed And Confused said...

The self righteous Socialists at Labour List, seem to have forgotten about St George and England, on this twenty third day of April.

Isn't that prejudiced against a large section of this Country's population one wonders?

bofl said...

holbers.i am actually about to launch my own biz.........its taken 18 monts ti get off the ground.......

just pointing out that instead of screaming at everyone that they are lazy hoons most people want to work...

Newtownhamilton, I am still laughing. You aren't much good B Specials/RUC whatever you are called now. Let Sinn Fein kiss it better, ha-ha.

Is Marmite a Jewish plot to destabilse Europe?
Questions to which the answer is No (Number 511). That has not precluded the knuckle draggers of the UAF from hijacking the unfortunate Marmite and including it in their "election broadcast". The kiss of death, rather like Brown and ZaNuLabour staying in office. Know why Muslimahs wear the hijab? Yes, that is right, they are eating Marmite. I see two lads were arrested in my old cottaging manor of Poplar yesterday for daring to heckle a politician.Oooh matron Added to that my trusty typewriter of 36 years conked out whilst I was trying to conclude my mega Hollywood book and film deal. Still, at least I have a bigger arsehole than Joe Slavko. But less brain cells. Back to campaigning for the BNP bye for now. XX Mwah. Free Tibet.

Joshua Plastic said...

WTF has the above 2 comments to do with Belgium? Some daft cunt n'est pas?

Haman said...

If they split would that require Herman van Remploy to step down?

Belgium ceasing to exist would mean the appointed head of the EC was not a EU citizen.

if the Flemish lot have any sense,the 1st thing they'll do is kick out the welfare sucking koranimals.

Velly interesting! Obama not from the States? Gordoom not elected? Von Wotsit not an EU citizen?

Wot's going on?

Fausty said...

Doesn't this play into the hands of the Federalists?

Dave said...

Happy with Belgium falling apart. The only downside is that they wont get to pass the law banning burquas.

Von Rumpy is an arsehole. The Flems and Walloons dont want him back.

Dave said...

And a happy St Georges Day OH. Have fun tomorrow

I always thought it was an area of high air pollution , hence flemish ! (tra laaa)

Meanwhile in stoke the BNP launch there manifesto , quite an interesting read it is too , apart from a penal colony in South Georgia , some of the ecnomic ideas were interesting and it gave some sharp contrast to labour global corporatist construct . Death penalty and a bonfire of the quangos greater than any other party , so far . Quite why the media keep refering to it as a far right party is beyond me as they want some nationalised structures so they are far left.

As for the belgiums any country that brews such excellent beer and tasty chocolates deserves to be free of the EU . Its a bit of let down though when you ask for a tray of chips , you get these bits of straw with a huge dollop of mayo (pomme frites).
tried one of there bottled fruit beers (cassis) and it was loverly. Thanks to the micro brewers we still make some excellent traditional beers in the UK , to toast St Georges day to , and some pretty good ciders , couldnt get along with pear cider (perry) apparently though there are some secial one variety of them .

there are quite a few varietys of apples and pears , never mind the five you useually see at the supermarket , not all are sweet like the modern fruits , so I would expect much if you get to try them , but they can be used in other ways . Luckily a few clever people saw that the old orchards were getting ripped up , for pasture or hot tubs and a great many of , what used to be a huge regional variety of fruit , has a stock bank and some very didicated growers .

re youg girl who commited suicde, very sorry for her and her family , we all have dark times in our lives at certain points , the story of the soldiers mum and dad was equally despair.

king chillout said...

I have to admit, that as a BNP voter I was shocked at how much common sense the manifesto contained !

The last few have had one or two nutty policies in that I didn't agree with, but this time I couldn't find anything I didn't like the sound of.

It will go down well with your common pissed off and over-taxed Brit, I should think.
