THE "BUTTERFLY" GOVERNMENT



After 18 months without government, Belgium finally has one and the Prime Minister is Elio di Rupo. As he always wears a bow tie people called the new government "the Bow Tie government" which sounds far better in French because a bow tie is a "Papillon" which means "Butterfly" so now we have a "Butterfly" government.

Nobody really cares, because we are probably the first and only country which lived and continued life without any major problems for nearly one and a half year ! That's something to go into the Guiness Book of Records.

The fact that he is homosexual and answered to the question if he is, "Yes, and so what ?" Which took the wind out of the journalist's sails. People just don't care about private life when it doesn't harm anybody and religion is not a problem either, we don't even know if he goes to church or not. Which makes all the difference when you look at American Presidents where researches are done since he was in his mother's womb.

I think the most important thing is that he is very intelligent and has everything to be a good leader. Now we will see if there are more taxes, since we have now a "Butterfly" Government !




and the "Family picture" with the old clowns in new positions. Just like the figures on a chessboard. Only the King remains the same. Everybody knows that chess players need a long time for a move !

It'a amazing how long you were "headless", lol. Butterflies are free to fly, do you think the common citizen will notice that there is a government now? it all sounds so civilized to me, it would mean chaos where I live...

We had a gay politician here talking everywhere causing so much trouble and then they caught him stealing jewelry for his boy friend lol
Needless to say his career was done for.

It is interesting that the country hardly noticed that there wasn't a government. Glad to se some women in the family of butterflies.

There couldn't have been a better response than "Yes, so what?". Paws up for this guy!
On the other hand, I was just starting to believe that Belgium would teach the world a lesson on how to live happily without a government but now... Let's see what will happen...
God bless you!
