Quite true. But they were not too bad in their hayday ( never had a fatality in the last 25 years). Considering all the things that have happened in air-transport in the last three years - I really wonder whats going to be left when the dust setlles. Will we all be on ryan-air type planes? eating our own sandwiches and being charged when we go to the toilets? - I am surprised they hav'nt thought about that one yet??. -thats not such a bad idea. Say on a flight with 180 people - everytime somebody flushes the loo its at least 4 liters of water + washing their hands So a flight of 2 hours assuming 70% of the passengers use the toilets once ,that means that they need to cart around about 500 liters of water thats half a ton- so if you charge people say a quid a time ( 50 pee for kids) you will save on water and cut your fuel bill down. And it excludes those who have to go to the toilet all the time....

Well, if their driving's anything to go by, I'd say it was a Belgian Al Qaeda cell's abortive attempt to hit the European Commission building in Brussels.

Oh come off it . Stop knockng "les Belges" - yes they have a rotten government- yes they cant drive, yes they are all screwed up about sex. Yes
thye have a crazy financial system
BUT
- they have over 350 independent breweries
- make the best chocolate in the world
- make the best fire arms ( what a connection with chocolate)
- have the cheapest quality housing in Europe
- and are certainly not French

and even Jules Ceasar said " de tout les peuples de Gaulle ,les Belges sont les plus braves"

I an a Uk citizen- and just returned from blightly, by jove, was I happy to return to a "civilized " country. One day the UK will just sink.....

I agree with the chocolate and the fire arms.
I am the proud owner of a FRAGOT (bellonged to my father), twin barell shot gun. Made in 1930. The barrels are hand carved, it survived the German WW2 occupation in Greece and now is resting on top of the fire place in Greece. Great gun. I learned to shout with this one when I was 11-12 years old. Very light and very accurate. I also have a SEDETIEN hand made too in 1935 and a few others....
And finaly les Belges sont grands gens pour Ítre avec
