Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

By Bi-Lingual?

Belgium provides a cautionary tale about the dangers of bilingual nations.

Mr Leterme’s short-term political future is, however, a different question from whether this week’s storm will turn into a cyclone that sweeps away Belgium as a state. With every crisis Belgium appears to edge a little closer to the precipice, without ever falling off.

Bilingualism can work, but it sure is difficult.
