politieke chaos

  • Not Synced
    So then it's in Belgian airspace, and then it's a federal matter.
  • Not Synced
    Seriously, that'll be the next point of discussion
  • Not Synced
    so then we'll "calmly think about it", calmly, eh Rikky, so you don't hurt yourself
  • Not Synced
    "calmly think about how it would be best to start", seriously!
  • Not Synced
    There is only 1 solution, 1 solution only, we need to take to the streets.
  • Not Synced
    In every banana republic, in every fraudulent country, people take to the streets.
  • Not Synced
    And here we calmly sit in our couch, watching the whole thing
  • Not Synced
    and we think "ah yea, we're going to calmly think about it"
  • Not Synced
    We need to take to the streets! We're no longer a proper country anyway.
  • Not Synced
    So why don't we make like all those banana republics?
  • Not Synced
    Grab yourself a French speaking person by the arm, drag him on to the streets,
  • Not Synced
    we need to protest until they fix it!
  • Not Synced
    There, I needed to say that. Phew, what a relieve!
  • Not Synced
    I was planning to go running in the park, but it's raining
  • Not Synced
    Start working please!!
  • Not Synced
    What I also don't understand.... I understand there is a great worry in regards to the Flemish movement...
  • Not Synced
    that there are Flemish demands that need to be accepted... That's all ok...
  • Not Synced
    How is it then possible that when he submits that bill to the same party presidents -who gave him all the material for that bill-
  • Not Synced
    that suddenly they say "In fact John, 'this' is not in it and in fact we'd like it to be"
  • Not Synced
    But I heard now -did I hear well this morning on the radio... did someone else hear the same-
  • Not Synced
    That now the question is to determine who's competence it is to decide about the entrances and exits of the highway around Brussels
  • Not Synced
    " and 'that' is in it but we don't want it to be"
  • Not Synced
    Why didn't you say that when you initially met with him?
  • Not Synced
    I've heard Rik Torfs this morning on the radio. Did you hear Rik Torfs?
  • Not Synced
    He said "well we now have to calmly think about how best to proceed?"
  • Not Synced
    Excuse me? Excuse me? Calmly think about how best TO PROCEED?"
  • Not Synced
    Are those people not ashamed? It's been 200 days we're busy Rik!! "How to proceed..."
  • Not Synced
    if your plumber -who you called to repair your shower- comes and tells you
  • Not Synced
    he's not gonna do anything for 200 days - but he asks you to pay him-
  • Not Synced
    and then he announces that he'll calmly think about the best way to proceed"
  • Not Synced
    well - you sue they guy no...
  • Not Synced
    but I think I burned more calories than running cirlces for 30 mins. Thank you!
  • Not Synced
    Really is that the next discussion... and will we calmly have to think about that?
  • Not Synced
    Calmly think about it, yea Rik.. without hurting yourself too much yea ..calmly think about how to proceed...
  • Not Synced
    Really...People there is but one solution really...we have to get down into the streets
  • Not Synced
    I wonder by the way if that isn't an option?
  • Not Synced
    In every banana republic and each corrupt country people get down into the streets
  • Not Synced
    But here we look at it from the comfort of our armchair and think "oh yes we'll calmly think about it"
  • Not Synced
    We have to protest
  • Not Synced
    Isn't there a law OBLIGATING the elected to form a government?
  • Not Synced
    Oh no, it should be Falders... is that it?
  • Not Synced
    did I get it right....That those people paralyse a whole country because of discussions on who's responsible of a stupid highway exits?
  • Not Synced
    You'll exit in Flanders or you don't...
  • Not Synced
    I really don't understand... Are those people still connected to reality or not?
  • Not Synced
    Do they know what they're doing?
  • Not Synced
    No really... cause soon it will be about the Viaduct in Vilvoorde!
  • Not Synced
    Cause it's situated above Vilvoorde. But did someone measure how high exactly?
  • Not Synced
    Cause maybe it's too high to still be of Flanders competence?
  • Not Synced
    And then it hangs in Belgium's airspace! And then it's a federal issue...
  • Not Synced
    We already lost our dignity. Well why not do as in any banana republic
  • Not Synced
    Take a french speaking by the hand and get down into the street
  • Not Synced
    And we have to protest till it's solved
  • Not Synced
    No...It had to come out...It's a relief
  • Not Synced
    I wanted to go for a run in the park but it's raining...
  • Not Synced
    But I belief I burned more calories compared to a 30 min run. Thanks very much.
  • Not Synced
    You see I don't speak often about politics
  • Not Synced
    cause I know that during a family reunion it just blows the atmosphere around the table.
  • Not Synced
    Can't we order and menace them with sanctions in front of Court?
  • Not Synced
    But today, today, I want to talk about Belgian politics cause I don't understand it anymore
  • Not Synced
    You see, Johan Van de Lanotte spend two months - two moths on his bill.
  • Not Synced
    That they have to pay 10 million euros a day as long as there isn't a government?
  • Not Synced
    All party presidents went to see him saying
  • Not Synced
    "we want this" or " we don't want that"
  • Not Synced
    1 million per belgian... Rick Torf will personally deliver it!
  • Not Synced
    Or the postman, with your pension.
  • Not Synced
    "we're partisans of this" and "that's going too far far us". Yes?
  • Not Synced
    Cause the highway is in fact situated in Flanders Haha!
  • Not Synced
    That guy writes it all down, yes? And then he creates a bill out of it.
  • Not Synced
    Those people were elected no?
  • Not Synced
    And who's competent for the entrances and exits? Not Brussels no?
  • Not Synced
    They applied for a job. Well you got the job, congratulations!
  • Not Synced
    See, I don't often talk about belgian politics
  • Not Synced
    because I know that when you start talking about politics at family gettogethers, it's a good way
  • Not Synced
    to ruin the mood at the table.
  • Not Synced
    But today, today, I'd like to say something about Belgian politics, because they've lost me.
  • Not Synced
    See, Johan Vande Lanotte has been working for 2 months, 2 months(!) on his bill.
  • Not Synced
    All the party chairmen went to see him and said "Look, Johan, we want this, we don't want this"
  • Not Synced
    "We really like this and we can't live with this"
  • Not Synced
    So he writes it all down, and puts it all in 1 big bill
  • Not Synced
    So how is it possible that, when he redistributes that bill to the party chairmen
  • Not Synced
    who supplied the material for it, that they go all "oh, Johan, this isn't in there and we really wanted
  • Not Synced
    that, and this is in there and we really don't like that"?
  • Not Synced
    So why didn't you say that when you went to see him for a cup of coffee?
  • Not Synced
    This morning, I heard Rik Torfs on the radio, did you hear that?
  • Not Synced
    He said "We need to calmly think about how it would be best to start"
  • Not Synced
    Excuse me?!
  • Not Synced
    "calmly think about it would be best to START"?!
  • Not Synced
    Don't these people have any shame? We've been at it for over 200 days, Rik!
  • Not Synced
    "best to start"... If you call a plumber for a broken shower
  • Not Synced
    and he takes 200 days to do nothing, bills you for it,
  • Not Synced
    and then goes "We're calmly going to think about how it would be best to start"
  • Not Synced
    Surely you would sue him!
  • Not Synced
    I wonder if that's an option... don't our laws say these people are OBLIGATED
  • Not Synced
    to form a government? So can't we have a judge force them with fees?
  • Not Synced
    So they'd have to pay €10 million per day they haven't formed a government.
  • Not Synced
    1 million for every Belgian, Rik Torfs will personally deliver it at your doorstep
  • Not Synced
    or the mailman, along with your pension.
  • Not Synced
    Are these people not elected? They applied for a job...
  • Not Synced
    Well you got it, congratulations, so get started! Please!
  • Not Synced
    And another thing I don't get:
  • Not Synced
    I understand there's a concern about the Flemish movement,
  • Not Synced
    and that there are Flemish demands that need to be met, but now I hear,
  • Not Synced
    did I hear that correctly? did any1 else hear this?
  • Not Synced
    Are they starting about the responsibilities for the on- and off-ramps of the ring around Brussels
  • Not Synced
    because these ramps are actually in Flanders, aha!
  • Not Synced
    So who's responsible for the on-and off-ramps? Surely not Brussels, oh no, it has to be Flanders!
  • Not Synced
    So do I get this right? Are these people blocking an entire country
  • Not Synced
    because they're concerned about who's responsible for a stupid ramp?
  • Not Synced
    Thou shall exit Flemish, or thou shall not exit!
  • Not Synced
    I seriously don't get that! Are they still in contact with reality? Do they know what they're doing?
  • Not Synced
    Soon they'll debate the overpass of Vilvoorde, because that's above Vilvoorde,
  • Not Synced
    but has anyone measured how high it is? Because it might be too high to be the Flemish region,
