Lèse majesté, Belgian style

Some slightly laboured Belgian visual humour involving Albert II, King of the Belgians, or more fully, Albert Félix Humbert Théodore Christian Eugène Marie de Belgique (French) /Albert Felix Humbert Theodoor Christiaan Eugène Marie van België (Dutch).



Much as the Saxe-Coburg-Gothas in these parts opted for Windsor a while back, the Belgian branch dropped SCG for 'of Belgium' as a surname. Mind you, that isn't as embarrassing as having a daughter in law who was an estate agent.

Etrangement, Belqique/Belgie doesn't seem to be suffering from not having an official cabinet.

Praps an endorsement of Tom Paine's "He governs best who governs least". (Try telling that to Paine-o-philes like Tony Wedgwood Benn.)

Which is a rather less embarassing thing to have on one's CV.
