Judging from what can be read in numerous foreign media, you might think our little country is falling apart. Well, it's not. And if I can help it, it won't. And I am not alone in this opinion... Bert at One Agency, for example, posted this message today:
"I, and many people in Belgium with me, are frustrated with the fact
that our politicians and the traditional media have created the
impression that people in the North and South of our miniscule country
hate each other. This blog wants to prove the opposite: www.ilovebelgians.be.
Go check it out and share the love. Power to the people!"
Note: for those of you out there who had doubts whether "België" is even a song title, here's the proof it is:
By the way: it's a song by Het Goede Doel, a Dutch band, in which they express their thoughts on moving from Holland to another country, Belgium being the best option they can think of. And if even the Dutch feel this way...
Note: Unfortunately, the English translation of the song was "Luxemburg (Is there life on Pluto?)" Also, the song is said to refer to the Utrecht café België on the Oudegracht, famous for its many different kinds of beer. Which sort of puts this thought a bit into a different perspective, I guess. :-D
