Cultural dialogue begins at home?

"The European Year of Intercultural Dialogue (EYID) 2008 takes place throughout the European Union. Each participating country has defined how it implements the Year".

Thrilling, huh?

Meanwhile, guess which EU country is so good at intercultural dialogue that it cannot manage a national list of events, civic dinners, patronising approaches to ethnic minorities and the like, but rather has lists for the two main linguistic groups (the German speakers of die Ostkantone do not appear to be doing anything as yet...). And neither list gives the option to see the details in the other's language.

Yes, Belgium.

Meanwhile, the Belgians are still without a national government - 178 days and counting. We have been labouring under the Brownite cosh for 16 days fewer, and frankly I envy the Belgians.
