Nothing Good...

Dr North at the ever brilliant EU Referendum comes this article in the Brussels Journal about our new fearless and unelected leader, Herman Van Rompuy.

Well worth a read as it illustrates the anti-democratic nature of the EU to a T; it seems the prerequisites are simple enough - you must show a flair for this and a predisposition towards this type of thinking.

Some years ago my friend JonJon and I went to the Leeds Film Festival Night of the Dead and saw a Belgium film called The Ordeal; normally not a lot phases us, being veteran horror buffs but this film's tale of unrelenting misery and cruelty is unmatched in any film we've seen in the near-decade we've been going to the festival; not because it was scary but because it was also depressing.

Since then we have had a maxim we've never been able to disprove (though I open to proof to the contrary):

Nothing Good Ever Comes From Belgium


Time to leave.

They do make nice chocolates.

I don't care much for them; we are spoilt in the UK in terms of chocolate and as for German or Swiss chocolate...umm...
