Miss Belgium in trouble over bad language


"Hroot, toot vandernoot!" "Quoi?"


A big Belgian theme today as that's where we are supposed to be today, Brussels, but am not for various reasons. This does get us out of dinner with the terrifying A, we suppose.



Well, Alizée Poulicek, the new Miss Belgium is in trouble as she doesn't speak Flemish and was booed by the Antwerp crowd, during the competition, for conducting her post winner's interview in French. You would have thought that a country that has taken six months to form a government would have other things on it's mind but no, language is a key issue in the home of Godiva.


The main thing we would have been concerned about is that Poulicek is really a Czech; only her mother is Belgian and everywhere on the net she is described as "Czech model" Alizée Poulicek.

The key issue of course is that Belgium isn't a proper country! It's a bastard Frankenstein creation that's only existed since 1830. Everyone knows that Belgium only has two purposes: to produce over-priced chocolate and to be a jolly good battlefield. Chop it in half and give one bit to the French and the other bit to the Dutch (and a little bit to the Germans if you are a completist) we say!
