Tuesday 6 December - We have a government!

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you....a new government! 541 days it took.

Here, they've labelled it "un gouvernement papillon" (a "bow tie government"), because it's what Elio Di Rupo, the new PM and mayor of Mons, is always seen in public wearing. Usually, a red one. Although I did spot him wearing a rather fetching burgundy-coloured one recently.

What more is there to say. Except, hallelujah!

Now, time to make himself instantly unpopular by implementing a raft of  much-delayed austerity measures.
