Over the years French was the main language of communication in
Belgium, The Flemish side was always surpressed.
Over the years we revolted, but it never went so bad that the sides
meet in battle, although, Leuven ' 68/ 69 was a very close thing.
Still we have ' facility- communities ' around Brussels where the
French speaking population has some advantages, that is, they
ought to be spoken to in their own native tongue and that holds
water for the Flemish too.
But we still, both sides, stir the blood of the other if we can.....
