Meet Belgium’s new Minister of Health!

Maggie de Block, Belgium’s new Minister of Social Affairs and Health
Speaking as a former fat-person... its got to be the tasty Belgium chocolate! :)  If you want to know what it feels like to be despised in this modern world, get fat.  Fat people are the politically correct people to hate these days (after  tobacco smokers - mind you pot smoking is in vogue these days)... and of course that just makes it harder for them to lose weight, because much of the problem is the person's self-image anyway...  -AK

Meet Belgium’s new Minister of Health!

Among several dictionary definitions of the word “irony” are these:
5. an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
6. the incongruity of this.

Two days ago, on Oct. 11, 2014, at the Royal Palace in Brussels, Maggie De Block was sworn in as Belgium’s new Minister of Social Affairs and Health.

Oh, the irony. The irony.

Belgium’s new center-right government took office on Saturday, promising to raise the retirement age and slash costs by about 8 billion euros ($10 billion) to balance the national budget by 2018 and cut the country’s debt. (Source: Reuters)

52-year-old De Block entered politics in 1999 when she was elected a member of the Belgian Chamber of Representatives for the electoral district Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde.

She had studied medicine at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and was a general practitioner for 25 years.

Double the irony!
