"In the world against belgium whether we agree or not fee for ranked number one. I don't think the best team but says the are and the belgium look pretty bad enough for half so get the victory but my god. I don't think that coach can ask any more of these players. That collective right from the kick was impressive they dominate literally the first tough in any position on the field Defensively give any chess budget to move forward. A midfielder they competing control and striker has an opportunity. That shouldn't probably thick enough advantage of that kind of momentum and scored the second goal. That was finished that. We've felt at some point because to consider that when you play against belgium and have funded the brewing lukaku and this guy can change the game in a moment. This is what's happened in the second half but they dominate the literally. Everything even shot on goal three times more than belgium. So that's kind of potential that this team had this today.

"Racked up large debts when austrian emperor. Franz joseph suggested that leopold auto pay off his daughter's debts. The king responded. As far as i'm concerned my daughter is dead. Meanwhile when leopold's middle daughter remarried against his wishes after she had been widowed leopold refused to speak to her ever again even worse. He barred her from attending her mother's funeral. At one point two of the daughters joined forces and attempted to sue leopold for their inheritance. Unfortunately they lost. Suffice it to say that even before stories of the congo splashed across newspapers leopold's reputation was nothing short of diabolical for the public believing that leopold was guilty of atrocities in the congo. Free state was all too easy. Even though the belgian government was poised to inherit the colony on leopold's death it became clear that parliament would have to take control of the congo. Sooner rather than later. Something needed to be done. But leopold wasn't about to let go of his colony for free before he would hand over the congo. He forced the belgian parliament to complete at. Its own expense the public building projects. He had begun in belgium. And as one last twist of the knife leopold demanded and received an additional two million francs as a mark of national gratitude. Parliament acquiesced on november fifteenth nineteen o eight king. Leopold's control over. The congo came to an end a year. After relinquishing control of the congo leopold suffered from an intestinal blockage. On his deathbed he married his young mistress caroliina la when his daughters came to brussels to reconcile with him. Leopold turn them away on december seventeenth. Nineteen o nine seventy four year. Old king leopold. The second died at the time of his death. Leopold was so despised that his funeral cortege was booed by crowds of belgians. It's difficult to determine. Just how much. Wealth leopold took from the congo as he avoided announcing his prophets. In fact he usually insisted that he made no money at all. From the colony one estimate suggests that between eighteen ninety six and one thousand nine hundred six. The king may have made three million pounds sterling with equivalent to fifteen million. Us dollars at the time now. That leopold was finally gone. Many hoped that suffering in the congo would come to an end while the worst atrocities did diminish under belgian administration the system of forced labor heavy taxation hostage taking and brutal punishments remained the belgian congo lasted until nineteen sixty when the colony finally achieved independence. Renaming itself the democratic republic of the congo. Unfortunately despite their new-found autonomy the area never recovered from leopold's rule and to this day the nation continues to struggle with political social and economic turmoil. Meanwhile in belgium leopold the seconds legacy remains controversial. The nation particularly the capital of brussels is still adorned with public buildings erected by leopold paid for with wealth plundered from the congo at the cost of millions of lives. however in twenty twenty belgians started a petition to remove all statues of leopold from brussels. Those who put together the petition stated we do not want to erase the past. But we do want to erase any homage to this man in june twenty twenty for the first time a belgian monarch expressed remorse for the country's colonial rule some however criticized king philippe for falling short of a full apology. Of course not. Everyone in the family expresses remorse. The king's brother prince lavar said in an interview leopold. The second never went to the congo himself. I do not see how he could have made people there suffer over one hundred years later. They're still a disconnect between the royal family and the congolese lives destroyed because of their ancestors for belgium and for the congo. The scars of leopold's reign.

Is there a link between the AstraZeneca vaccine and blood clots?

"Suspected linked to the development of a rare syndrome involving the formation of blood. Clots in the brain's blood vessels led to eighteen european countries temporarily halting their use of astrazeneca's covid nineteen vaccine pending an investigation. By the way the european medicines agency the itself though while it investigates is urging nations to continue to use the vaccine which has been so far administered to over seventeen million people going to the very real threat posed by massive surges and covid nineteen cases across europe that said some countries like belgium in the uk elected. Not interrupt their vaccine. Roll outs the aura. Which regulates medicines in the uk has also carried out its own investigation reached a very reassuring conclusion. Our view shows that there is no difference. That blood clots in veins are occurring more than would be expected in the absence of vaccination for either vaccine we have also received five reports of different a rare form of blood clot in the cerebral sinuses cerebral sinus vein thrombosis all csv t occurring together with lowered blood platelets shortly after vaccination with the covert nineteen vaccine astrazeneca. This type of blood clot can rarely occur naturally in unvaccinated people as well as in people with covid nineteen disease. A further review of these events is ongoing but a causal relationship with the vaccine has not yet been established. I'm hr hfc's june rain there. She was addressing the number ten downing street press conference earlier this week so there is still some uncertainty around this but in the end what it all comes down to is balancing risk the risk from a very rare and possibly completely unconnected medical condition versus the relatively much bigger risk of succumbing to covid nineteen infection. If you catch it and it's attendance queely so help us comprehend what is going on what we really need. Here is a professor on the public understanding of risk. Which is exactly what cambridge. University's david spiegelhalter specializes in things quite complicated. Because the story is it was ran. Last week was by blood. Clots like deep-vein thrombosis and other things and i looked to that data. What was being reported by astra zeneca. Aaron tim visits the number of Adverse reactions they didn't like anything special tool but it since come out that the actual actual real concern is from norway and germany in particular is is a particular special full of thromboses known as herbal venus sinus thrombosis associated with low platelets so this is clearly a razz syndrome and germany particular.

There is a concern about Yesterday vaccine but policymakers have to make decisions all the time. Don't they about What you're going to do and what the cost might be and what you're not going to do. And what the cost might be and it is really important not to jump the baby out with the biological bathwater because by deferring vaccination while you investigate a very remote risk of something happening you end up costing people the chance to be vaccinated in the interim one commentator in france pointed out that for every hundred thousand people. You don't vaccinate over the age of fifty four one day that will translate into five deaths. I haven't checked that statistic but it does sound plausible.

What can the but to understand the game in belgium. When you've got to buying of team that puts eleven men behind the ball as difficult to break down number one team that eleven men behind the ball in the second half. That's really difficult to break. Down suggests suggests that the england performance was just not very good because they didn't score was really really analysis and also suggest jack grill. He's done a good game. I mean really the headlines. Next day in england were england. Lows jot greeley outstanding performance even so sales right a man who has not been convinced by jack released a methadone from quarter months ago. Said jack stepped up to another level tonight against the world's best team at the moment. So england have not been not bad. It's not all gloom. We don't judge them on tonight but the performance in belgium was way different to her. We portrayed it on sunday night that they still lost. They still lost. They didn't cray. Maybe say you sat in the studio and you said and shocker rightly pointed out. It's not as easy to create goals and scored chances at times. And if you wanna go win the tournament in the summer you wanna create chances no matter who the opponent no matter how they set up but sometimes a team set.

Weather's like a lack of creativity. It was interesting. They use mason mountain kind of a more central role tonight. I think that's where he's at his best. He had the very game scored. A goal is a good night particularly photo. New is just given everybody reminded f particularly gareth. Southgate about what he has to offer. What assist and then to well taken goals as well so after his Misdemeanor and they have a hotel room in iceland. He's very much back in the vote.

Hadn't got a point in the group and it kind of like the end of an era for them but they did what they had to do. Craig will interest in an offer fell foreign gets enough.

"I think the pressure on them Come up and we just set the too high from the robo. they're still an exceptional on certainly on their results. Say that it's so i. I agree with both of the guys. They've still got the too wide center. Hobbs defend particular. Well today and when you look at who they had wingbacks has produced an attacking player plan is the right wing back in chelsea plan as the left wing really got a defensive tho in their in their mind so they were quite often opposition to the field and they didn't dominate midfield and having to get with now happened to get them up on another got two very good winds and some good results. I think roberto martinez will be going away from these and thinking why couldn't we control wife could we dominate the by. Why can't we get the bullying and the front areas earlier and keep it up there. Because that was a major problem. And i'll go back to to every shots for them to have a chance at the euro championships. They need. Ed has all to be fit in an old senator because they don't make a big difference that same. Of course the interesting thing. The interesting thing is is that target has left wing blackened. The game against england and the only player belgium were missing from the strongest team was eaten has up now rebecca martinez going do to play as a wing black and walk all the way back because we know he's not gonna do that. That's going to leave them. Exposed otherwise it's going to change the shape of the team because you had milton debroy plane behind lukaku not game. So it's got some stuff to ponder when these guys come back in. I mean how is he going to reshape team. With debris melton gone he will go with three four three and he will play. Roy and one side has all the other side leave buttons out on the send. Fool lukaku and play with thielemans in midfield and with vitriol. Probably that would be. He's younger saw.

Regions and committees outside of the federal government, and then innovative solutions needs to rebound and Belgium needs stability. What's left of Belgium order states that would come out of Belgium needs stability in the future call I fully agree would just set on one particular point. Often it is for that in the north and flowers were to Flemish nationalist parties are very strong of lambs belong in NBA which have a clear separatist agenda they want a independent flowers. So many people think that influence since both parties are so popular. There is a vast majority of citizens of Flemish citizens that really want the end of Belgium really want the independence of flowers.

"Listening to the foreign desk still with me are called Devos and Reggie Sandra. In this part of the show I want to try and look ahead to the future not just of this new Belgian coalition. But of Belgium's national institutions as a whole Reggie was saying in the first part of this program how this new government is trying to forge a new idea of Belgian politics it's trying to leave certain things of the past behind. Does it think of the Flemish walloon schism as something that can be left behind or do people generally except that it's part of Belgium Politics and you just need to deal with it. Now you see you cannot leave that behind. It's it's part of the core nature of balance politics is being present since the very beginning degration of the Badger State about two centuries ago, and probably it will remain like this until the end of. Belgium over the end of whatever we know. So no government no national government as ever been able to fully manage and soften the linguistic divide all the community divided as we call it in bedroom the way to negotiate the balance of power between different ministers everything turns around these. Idea of opposing or balancing French speaking and the speaking. So d one clue of a stability of national government in bedroom is this management of these crises of this comes linguistic conflicts if he cannot manage on a daily basis why you deal with other issues than your government is doomed to collapse. So it's very important that you have to keep that in mind that it will never disappear and that you have to manage your country and you cabinet despite on these heavy burden colleagues there not a danger though that if you exclude from government as this government has not just. The. Two biggest Flemish nationalist parties. But as of the last election, the to actual biggest parties that does not accentuate divide even further that it increases the resentments that drive a divide like that. In the first place, it is a danger because. So one of the very strong arguments in was against the federal government was that does not represent the majority of Flemish people if you exclude the first and the second largest party of a country that's quite exceptional and why it is important because in Flanders, the majority has the feeling that they are not represented by the federal government. The danger is that on the long term, this government could be considered as no longer legitimate and so if the the crew one government is not carefully looking at what happens in flowers, which is more like a central right region. The French speaking part of Belgium is not speaking more on the left flounces Moron Center right. So if the government does not take into account that the majority of the Flemish people have central right feelings. And this is not seen in policy decision whatever it could lead to an early nation between the dominant forces in the Flemish public opinion on one side and federal government on the other side, which will result at the end of the day in more realistic feeling smart amounts for more regional power and competences at the Flemish side..

"But with a lot of people within the Flemish nationalist parties, it's also very cultural nationalism and a very sensitive issue at sometimes goes back decades within certain families that were for example mistreated by French, speaking citizens. The two Flemish nationalist parties which are now preeminent and which did do very well in the two thousand and nineteen election. This Islam's belong on the new Flemish alliance. What are the differences between them? There are big differences actually. So you have the far right's plans belying or Flemish interest party, which is closely aligned to other four I forces in Europe like the French national rally. It loosely party and they run like you said, they won very big in the two thousand nineteen elections actually surprise of many. So that's the first one Flemish interest. So the far right and then you have the new Flemish alliance, which is more Conservative Party, which aligns itself we parties like the Tories and is at this point, the largest party, not just in in Flanders that overall in Belgium as they are more focused even though they. Have these Flemish nationals routes that we talked about they are more focused on the economic nationalism part. So date want to have more autonomy for Flanders but mostly to say down, we can at least manage their own affairs for example, when it comes to health care when it comes to pensions. So that's the big difference between those parties do though I know this is the aspect that I think bemused most foreign onlookers who can't quite understand. How this would actually work? Do they literally want to secede from Belgium and establish flanders as a new independent nation yet I was that was definitely historic goal it still openly the goal of the far right Flemish interest party when it comes to the conservative new. Flemish alliance it is officially still their goalie I mean it's in their party documents but when you ask them about it and I mean they've obviously been asked a lot about. This publicly, their party position at this point is that independence for flanders even if it would be within the European umbrella, which would be a very hard thing to do because then obviously, you have other regions not talk about Catalonia are others who would might have wanted to same as even if that would be a possibility within Europe they agreed at at this point, it might not be the best option because of all the you know logistical. Etcetera. I mean, I don't. Have to refer to Brexit but. So, at this point, what they want is more autonomy for flounder. So more regional competences, they call it come federalism, but they are not striving for autonomy in the short term. So, how is all this scene in northern flanders? Belgium is taken seriously as a source of concern and discussion. Yeah. Of course, especially because, at this point, we kind of have the rule in Belgium that no other party will govern with the far-right Flemish interests but given their big win in the last election that Odyssey complicates the search for coalition government because obviously when you look at it from.

"Between now and Belgium's next Election Ju in two thousand and twenty four. The new government will face a formidable opposition, not just the largest party in parliament, but also the equal second largest the new Flemish alliance and Vlaams Belang don't necessarily like each other all that much. But they do both subscribe to some idea of Flemish nationalism even Flemish separatism. We'll joining me from Brussels with more on that is Barbara Moons reporter at Politico Europe Barbara will start at the start I guess other generally agreed origins of the idea of Flemish nationalist sentiment where it started and why it started. The Flemish nationalist sentiment go back for centuries actually to the beginning of Belgium and even before that but I think the main thing or the interesting thing to know is that Belgium was always more dominated by the French speaking culture, and so it took quite some time in order to have for example, Flemish Education Flemish culture the recognition of the Flemish language as an official language that is also equally respected. It was actually during the first World War where a lot of Flemish. Were sent to war and had to take orders from French officers that I often didn't understand which obviously I mean led to huge mistakes and to a lot of resentment with Flemish nationalist. They weren't called that at that point and that went through throughout the Second World War and it wasn't really into after. So mid twentieth century also because the economics within. Belgium shifted. So you have that sense of you know this this cultural nationalism, but also the economic nationalism because throughout the Mid Twentieth Century, the well that was being produced in Belgium, kind of shifted from the French speaking part of Bologna towards Flan. There is a flanders is now by far the more richer region of the two. So in that sense it also. Helped grew the self esteem of Flanders to say that you have to respect our language or culture especially since we're now paying the bills given that transformation of flag is that you describe is Flemish nationalism. Now actually really descended from that historical Flemish nationalism or is it something you entirely this seems to sound like a transition from the nationalism of the underdog to the nationalism of the overdose I guess yeah it's true and I mean the political parties that we have now really go back to that. Route's they were called differently throughout the time, but they really go back to those Flemish national routes, and in that sense I, mean for some, it is still an economic nationalism. You know they they say that it's not fair that Flanders is being certain bills for the French speaking part of Bologna..

"We will be talking later in the show about the idea of a national spirit in Belgium that might look like now and in the future. But for the moment, let's talk a bit about this new government is led called by the new prime, minister. Alexander, could you briefly explain who he is and how he got there? was quite experienced. He has been in several federal governments in the boss show years. He's probably one of the most experienced members of the new government because one of the at difficult grass rick sticks. So that new government that is composed with many new ministers that we have never seen before. So it's a quite new fresh government. Secondly, he is being the former president of the Flemish Liberal Party he's been considered. As a roller right wing liberal liberal not in the philosophical way of thinking. But in the partition way of thinking he so more free market liberal, he is a good communicator and he has the image of being a bit of a leader. He brings people together. But one of the main reasons why Alexander grew became the prime minister is because of what I just described the mainly because he's he's from pharmacies Flemish. And after three french-speaking prime ministers we had so mess we had shuttling Michel, and before that, we had eluded rupel. So in federal country in which the modern box flowers has, the largest population is about sixty percent of the population of Belgium. It was considered that it is now time again to have a dutch-speaking prime minister because in. Belgium. Is. Important. Regime he seems to have been very careful to balance his government in all sorts of other respects though it as call saying he has banked fairly heavily on youth. He's clearly worked on having something approaching gender-balanced within his government. He has appointed Europe's I. I. Think I'm right in saying that transgender deputy prime minister that's Petra to Ceuta. Is he trying to make a statement there about an inclusive idea of Belgium. Definitely the DVD's to show the Buzzer belongs to the twenty first century that's traditional politics is behind us that the tradition ways of boating ministers of managing the cabinets of negotiating between parties belongs to the past and that now, not only with the renewed team but maybe it was a different way of communicating a different way of discussing between parties and discuss with the different. Levels of governments is a Belgium is becoming a more modern and progressive state I. Think. This is also something that Unites Different bodies because some of them wanted to have improvements of social policies, economic policies but most of them share these Ada of renewal of the way politics was made in Belgium and what better way of showing this renewal of the political landscape dying pointing. Different type of minister as you mentioned more females now we have Madrid off bill ministers in the Council of Ministers more young ministers and people with different profiled.

"People are very curious about it. So first of all has not having a government all this time actually made any appreciable difference to anything well, not that much because we simply always have a government even if it's not supported by parliamentary majority, we still have a government for instance, after an election and before the formation of. A new covenant is finished. We have a caretaker government and take a government means that the government can do whatever is needed for daily management of current affairs even manage a crisis. So budget really isn't ever without a government, but indeed, we had a caretaker government few months even more than humans almost more than a year with the arrival of the new government people suddenly awoken and concluded well, yes it is quite useful to have a government for. Instance in the management of the pandemic for the first time since more than a year, we see a strong prime minister. We see as thrones of health that are taking decisions that are communicating with the that are showing themselves that they are leading the country, and this was something that we missed for more than a year now. So really makes a difference even that most of us does not really feel it on an everyday basis if you had. To. Do not have a government regime on that subject of the pandemic in Particula has that been an area in which Belgians really have noticed the lack of a an official proper sworn in national government has it struck you that that has dictated Belgium's response to the pandemic toll. Indeed, it was very difficult at the beginning we had a caretaker government since the end of two, thousand, eighteen and Buzzer to face the most important has crises overseas street. So the situation was bit weird because on one side, you're the political crisis that was put into parenthesis why they're still ah hells and the beginning very socioeconomic crisis. So maybe the first weeks Belgium was slow in the response because they did not know out to structure the response because badge music complex country, you have different levels of government so you always have to discuss. Between the federal level, the regions and communities then you these political crisis on top of that. So it may be that the response was not that coordinated during the first days per week of the crisis, but then it went very fast in terms of putting all the strength, all the forces in the crisis. So during a few months, we had some kind of a national spirits. Is some kind of unique if you go back in the last decades of these three of Belgium, such a spirit of collaboration between levels of government and between parties from the majority from the opposition, a different level of governments is quite unique..

"Belgium is currently enjoying the second week of a new, national. Government This would be entirely on remarkable. Were it not for the fact that the seven-party coalition agreed circa the crack of dawn the other Wednesday ended four hundred and ninety three days without a national government, and this was not even Belgium's first such era of anarchy. In recent times, Belgium went five, hundred, eighteen, nine days without a national government between two, thousand, ten and two, thousand and eleven. These protracted standoffs partially a product of Belgium's infernally intricate political order though Bailey bigger than the American States of Massachusetts or Vermont, and with a population small of in Greater Los Angeles. Even when Belgium doesn't have a national government, it's still has three regional governments parliaments for the french-speaking community and the German speaking community, ten provincial governments and not fewer than five hundred, eighty, one municipal councils. There's also a king should be needed. But that in finally, intricate political order is also the consequence of of dealing with Belgium's more fundamental complexities Belgium those small is also several even smaller nations neighboring and overlapping each other at the most recent election back in two thousand and nineteen the two biggest shares of the vote for the Federal Parliament were won by parties who don't think Belgium should even really exist the moderate Flemish nationalists of the new Flemish Alliance and the far right Flemish firebreathers of lambs belong. One reason it has taken. So long to put a new government together is the difficulty of assembling a coalition which excludes both of them. But is this just an exercise in postponing the problem rather than solving it is the remotest chance that keeping nationalists out of power will actually render nationalism less partial is Belgium in its present form ultimately doomed this is the foreign.
