174 days and counting

And still no government in Belgium. After two full months of negotiations Yves Leterme, the strongman of the Flemish Christian democrats, handed Saturday afternoon for the second time his mission as formateur of the next government back to king Albert.

A parody on Yves Leterme is also no longer in my favorite countdown list, de Afrekening on Studio Brussel. It is written in Dutch by two popular radio-presentators Peter Van de Veire and Sofie Lemaire, of the Flemish broadcast Studio Brussel. They sing the text on the fragile music of ‘Hey There Delilah’ from the US-band Plain White T’s.
