The Prime minister is Guy Verhofstadt, in power is a coalition of Liberals and socialists (liberals here have a different meaning than liberals in the US, btw).

And since Belgium's a monarchy I suppose the real leader is supposed to be our king Albert II, but he hasn't got much to say

btw, this leadership is only for the next two weeks, because, expected is that the regional elections of 13 june will see the tsjeven win and break in the federal government, at which point I really hope they separate belgium (the separatist NVA is in alliance with them), because I live in Brussels, which is not flanders, and at least I wouldn't have to face the consequences of catholic domination

I thought Belgian leaders were Kim and Justine

Fabiola so classy, you gotta love her! she's 100% pure taste

has anyone seen "kopspijkers" last week with the fabiola impersonator? crappy show but that was funny as hell

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt
