Time to Say Goodbye to Belgium?

In an interview that has caused a scandal in Belgium, Flemish nationalist Bart De Wever Told Spiegel why the nation has "no future."

Belgium has sunk into political chaos. Following the parliamentary elections six months ago, all attempts to build a new government have failed. The country is divided into two camps that oppose each other, apparently irreconcilably: the socialists, who won the most votes in Wallonia, the French-speaking southern region of the country, and the nationalist conservatives in Flanders, the wealthier Dutch-speaking northern region. In an interview that has caused a scandal in his country, Flemish nationalist Bart De Wever, head of the country’s largest party, explains why the nation has “no future.”
