Thursday 31 March - The Official, Official World Record
And now that really is a new World Record. Today, Belgium surpasses Iraq's record and has now been without a government for 290 days. This momentous day has come and gone with barely a whimper. The odd murmur in the press, the odd grumble from the public, and the odd 'quelle surprise,' that anyone's surprised anymore. Or even cares for that matter. I think they did the grand celebrations back on February 18th and wore themselves out. So, that's that. Next target: June 13 2011, exactly one year since last year's election. Don't think you'd get much change out of a quid for that one down the bookies.
