Flying the Flag

As we all know, Belgium is promoting the anarchist cause by refusing to form a government, some three months before our hideous electoral system produced a messier result than usual.

There are fears that Belgium may split into two, three or even four. Whilst those favouring separation may be feeling quietly hopeful, those Belgians who want the nation to stay together have hit on a novel way of showing it; they hang the flag of their windows or balconies.

I've seen about six so far.

The rest of us are going about our daily lives in the confidence that somehow, we'll find a way of muddling through.
