Someone with a sense of humor offered his country to the highest bidder on eBay – and got an offer of Euro 10 million. After last week’s display of truncheon and tyranny in Brussels, that may be over-priced.
On the other hand, one person interviewed for the story thought it would be good to have a tripartite division, with Brussels as a tax-free haven. Not bad… the rest of the EU could pay its upkeep. I’m sure that would thrill them.
Unfortunately, the offer was taken down by a nervous management, so we’ll never know what might have happened. Some Saudi billionaire might have picked it up as a trifle for one of his wives.
Or even better, a rich Texan could have hauled Belgium home to the Lone Star state and used it as a wall between Mexico and the U.S. Think of that roiling mix of Moroccans and Mexicans.
Think of the new cuisines! Tex-Mex waffles…barbeque and couscous…endive smothered in pinto beans.
What a failure of nerve on the part of Belgium’s eBay.
