    Here you go Brian,  all the Belgium members of Channel9 are Flemish along with the Dutch guys like Bas.

    If you want more history, the Pilgrims were Flemish and English

    How many Belgian members does C9 have? 3 or 4? What does that have to do with separatism? And how are the Dutch members involved?

    Ah, but now I get it. Us Flemish niners are using Channel 9 to spread our separatist views. And the Dutch niners support that because the Flemish region could be reunited with the Netherlands. One detail: I'm Flemish and I'd actually prefer if Belgium would not split. Are you shocked now? Not all Flemish people are separatist.

    The hypocrisy of the British voicing their disdain for the Chinese occupation of Tibet while they still occupy six counties of Ireland has been ignored by most of the EU. 

    By 2012 we may have two Belgium's just as we have two Ireland's today and as an EU citizen I see that as ridiculous and completely unnecessary.

    Ever heard of devolution?

    Oh yes, because just giving control of Northern Ireland back to Southern Ireland will be without problem or violence in any way.

    And the situation it Tibet is just as complex. The thing that everyone is complaining about is the response of the Chinese government to the protesters.

    I'm also Flemish and would not like Belgium to slit!

    PS: that makes 2 Belgian 9-ers

    The Mayan "prophesy" calls for sometime in December 2012; the 21st IIRC. The olympics would be about 4 months before then.

    So that's okay Wink

    Hush Bas!

    We need more citizens to pay for our health care and pensions.

    I thought we could do a bit of marketing this way, they neednt find out there is no such thing as a free lunch after they have arrived.

    But I won't accept Flemish people unless they learn to speak proper Dutch. Wink

    Even the Flemish themselves apparently think they're incomprehensible: if you watch a program like Peking Express (which is a Dutch-Flemish cooperation) on Dutch TV, all the Flemish people are subtitled. If you watch it on Flemish TV, the Flemish people are still subtitled, not the Dutch!

    We should do as we do with all foreign cultures we import;

    learn their language!

    Belgium is a small country but with a very diverse and complex culture. I don't think you understand what Belgium is all about. And it's not my job to explain it to you. Superficial comments like yours don't mean anything.

    I was thinking we should host eurovision 2012 and use that for the opening ceremony?
    I'm sure the Chinese government has learned from the British experience and they will send thousand of ethnic Chinese to Tibet and in two generations they will be more Tibetan then the Tibetans themselves.

    Ireland should have one national football team and the member states of the EU should compete in the Olympics as the EU
