LETERME GOES FRENCH
Here you find my first selection in the news! A bit old, but most of you have no clue that this happened. There is a video with English comments so you can easily follow.
On the 21st of July, our National Holiday, formateur Yves Leterme wanted to sing our anthem Brabançonne. Instead he started singing the French anthem La Marseillaise. Of course, he was confused. We have three different cultures, national holidays, languages, flags, etc stuffed in this little country. If our future Prime Minister already gets confused, you can’t blame foreigners to have a hard time getting integrated! FYI: Right now Yves Leterme (member of CD&V – Flemish Christian democrat) is leading the negotations for the new federal parliament (expected in September). This makes him the most likely candidate as PM. He used to be Prime Minister of the Flemish Parliament untill some weeks ago.
You can check out his singing talent on this video:
