On December 13, 2006, RTBF (Belgian French-language public television) aired a program based on political fiction that depicted the end of Belgium with the declaration of independence for Flanders.
Today, the assumptions that were made on its separation are real and it is no longer considered a taboo in Belgium. Political crises are increasing, and governments are becoming more unstable, particularly since the legislative elections of June 2007.
The post-election period highlighted mainly the profound differences between the Flemish and the French who were unable to reach a consensus. The failure of Prime Minister Yves Leterme to form a stable government was what forced the King to accept his resignation, thus calling an early parliamentary election. This crisis was not unexpected; the result of Flemish separatism whose roots are ancient. Above all this, the identity crisis questions Belgium's national identity.
