God Save The King – From Orrible Onkelinx!


Although a dedicated monarchist, I seldom pay attention to the Belgian monarchy, as the kings have traditionally been a very low-key bunch.

Last month, last week, to be precise, King Philippe made headlines.

Why?

For performing his royal duties as a constitutional monarch should.

Instead of following the example of the infantile in-crowd parties, he met the leader of the Vlaams Belang, which did exceptionally well in both the European and Belgian elections.

Nearly 19% of Flemish voters chose the far-right Vlaams Belang (Flemish Interest), a stunning reversal of fortune for a party recently in decline.’ 

That’s how the far-left Guardian puts it, describing a ‘furious debate’ among the tantrum-prone establishment parties, who operate what they call a ‘cordon sanitaire,’ treating the party, and all those thousands of Flanders voters, with exquisitely anti-democratic contempt.

HM deserves applause for breaking with the pusillanimous precedents set by his two predecessors, who snubbed the Flemish party’s fore-runner, the Vlaams Blok.

Belgium of course forfeited its right to be reckoned a proper democracy some fifteen years ago, when the V Blok was outlawed by left-liberal judges, for the crime of ‘discrimination’ i.e. putting one’s ‘own people first,’ as their banner proudly proclaimed.

Yes, a large democratically elected party, BANNED in a modern European country.

….but utters not a whisper of concern about the King’s fair-minded readiness also to meet the self-styled ‘Belgian Workers Party,’ which even the Guardian admits is ‘radical left!’=

Fortunately, even her fellow-socialists seem more rational, as does almost everyone else quoted in the Report.

One of her Socialist comrades, Rudi Vervoort, is grown-up enough to say that, while ‘‘it is not a pleasure to see this scene in Belgium…. there is an electoral reality in Flanders that cannot be denied.”

Good for him, and for VB leader Tom Van Grieken –

It is completely normal to invite a party that has won the elections.  I was pleased with the invitation … I am not going to say it is unnatural. This is natural. What happened over the past 40 years was not democratic.”

Thanks to Flanders voters, Belgium now has two patriotic parties, and Lord knows there are real problems…
