What’s left out of the mainstream news reports of the Belgium story is the real reason for it: Islam and, specifically, the emergence of Brussels as the Muslim capital of Europe. That is what is tearing the country apart because the Dutch in the north want to stop it, but the French in the south keep voting for a party that wants to continue the process of islamification.
This article on Politically Incorrect lays it all bare.
Unfortunately, it’s in German, but I offer a precis of it in English here.

Thank you to Cheradenine Z for telling us what the leftist media omits. I had no idea Muslims were the X variable in this story. I thought it was another episode in a long history of Welfare parasites concentrated in one area of a country supported by productive people in another area who finally tire of the drones (who also often threaten separation unless they’re bribed to stay) and cut them loose a la the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Quebec in Canada is another such socialist whiner subsidized by the more productive provinces.
