COLUMN. The maneuver that Bart De Wever is now deploying seems mainly to be a desperate attempt by a chairman in decline

Will people soon be able to vote for N-VA in Wallonia? Bart De Wever released the balloon in this weekend newspaper. To his own surprise, the balloon quickly grew into a large weather balloon. A balloon that is often mistaken for a UFO. Some further questioning made it clear that his intention is not so much to get votes in Wallonia, but to travel like a missionary to the French-speaking television studios to promote his belief in confederalism. Perhaps in the hope of drawing Walloon politics into the Community bath and giving the theme a place of honor in the next government negotiations.
