De grootste Belg

Topics: 
Belgium

The national TV is broadcasting a series of shows in order to elect de grootste Belg (the most honorable Belgian). The ranking is interesting to follow, though right from the start it was clear that the race was going to be between Pater Damiaan (father Damien) and Eddy Merckx.
The same contest was held some years ago in Holland, and then the winner was Pim Fortuyn, quite surprisingly I must say. Having the questionable reputation of being one of the few murdered Dutch politicians apparently helps quite a bit. Only shame that people like Huygens didn't made it then.
