The future is Belgian

Lord Curzon said that without India England would be a greater Belgium. A greater Belgium sounds to me very like modern Europe.

Julie Burchill in the early 1980s said Britain tried being Belgium and didn't like it. But even after Brexit we and every European country are headed towards cantonisation between different ethnic groups. At least Great Britain has a strong culture which will absorb incomers, which Belgium lacks.
