Belgium is a "laboratory," says Joelle Milquet, the leader of the French-speaking Humanist Democratic Center party and a defender of both a united Belgium and EU. "If 10 million people in a developed country do not manage to build a collective project," she told Britain's Telegraph newspaper, "that would signal the bankruptcy of what one tries to build at the European and even international level."Jonah Goldberg covers Belgium and what it says for the EU. The point I think he's missing is that it is entirely in the EU's interest for these breakdown's to happen. It's divide and rule, plus the new states (statelets ?) will only be viable under the EU's umbrella.
