Tues 12 April - Lazy-arsed Belgians...

...Not my words, honest! Well, nobody's exact words, but a new survey has found that Belgians work less than any other country in the OECD, according to figures compiled by the Paris-based think tank, which researches various policies and trends throughout some of the world's wealthiest countries.

The report notes that Belgians work for an average of 7 hours a day, doing paid and unpaid work, less than any other of the OECD's 34 members. For the record, Mexicans came out on top (or bottom, depending on your perspective), working 10 hours a day. The OECD average was 8 hours.

You see, there are some advantages to being Belgian.
