British MPs hopelessly outclassed by Belgian counterparts

A tale from Le Figaro, involving some naughty Belgian MPs (four Socialists, two Centrists and a Liberal - and their spouses) and their 11 day American 'fact-finding mission':

The facts that they sought were on 'the impact of the financial crisis on three American states', and they did this by, inter alia, taking a flight over the Grand Canyon, cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge and wine tasting in the Napa Valley.

The Plain People of Belgium are not best pleased with these Walloon (rather than national) MPs, and greeted them with a guard of dishonour at the airport.

Sounds like the Belgian voters rather outclassed us too...

I think we must indeed judge ourselves disgraced by the Belgiae.
