Which was started by an influx of gifted Flemish immigrants I might like to remind you...
Also the Jews played a big part in it and yeah, you've reminded me a few times already, so it's my place and time here to remind you that NL took most Belgian refugees in WW1 (over a million) and as a thank you after that war it got slapped in the face by weird claims by the Belgians for Dutch territory.
But I won't go down that road either :)
I like the Flemish as they are very much alike the ppl from the area where I come from in NL. And even though you had perhaps bad experiences with some Dutch, not all Dutch ppl are the same - some of us do know how to behave when visiting your nice little country :)
Anyway - Low Lands is Low Lands :)
MG, did you read any books by Jan T. Gross? IS must hate his guts :)
Gross can be and is overbearing but still very good.
Yes - I did read Neighbours. Gross is indeed a bit over the top at times, but he gives a fair overview of things and he is a brave man as well, imo.
