Do you remember Yves Leterme’s epic gaffe?
This year we celebrated 10 years of one of the most hilarious gaffes of Belgian politics.
Back in 2007, Belgium’s national identity took a severe blow when Yves Leterme, at the time prime-minister of Belgium, did not know his country’s anthem.
When asked by a television crew to sing La Brabançonne, the Belgian national anthem, Mr Leterme started singing France’s La Marseillaise. This hilarious and alarming episode continued when following several critics he reacted by saying “I have much more important things to do than this crap. Those who are after me will pay for it sooner or later,”
