Yeah Trieste is awful for parking, the only city around here where I always go straight to parking garage and don't bother looking for some alternative, saves a lot of time and nerves

To Joshsam:

A Belgian on Le Monde's forum (in a discussion that started a couple of days ago about how Belgium was the next place to be hit by the debt crisis, if that's how to describe it - I'm no economist) posted a couple of hours ago: "It's done. An agreement for a government. So we'll have a full-fledged government within a few days."

Enormous headline on De Standaard's home page "Er is een akkoord," with a big picture of a smiling DiRupo.

La Libre Belgique: Le Palais confirme samedi que les négociateurs sont arrivés à un accord sur le volet budgétaire. Le Roi a chargé le formateur Elio Di Rupo de former un gouvernement le plus vite possible, indique le Palais dans un communiqué. (The Palace confirmed Saturday that the negotiators had reached an agreement on the budget chapter. The King has charged "formateur" Elio Di Rupo with forming a government as fast as possible, the Palace said in a statement.)

Leterme in either De Standaard or De Morgen quoting as saying "the last 530 days have left their mark."

So the impression I get, from this distance, is that it's just a matter of formalities. And naming ministers and the like, but the substance is there.

530 days of formation, 150 days of governing and then the circus begins again.

What's 150 days from now? Next elections don't need to happen until June 2014.

After a discusion on the Romanian section about the Hungarian country code used on road signs / licence plates:

What ISO standard or int'l treaty governs these? Is it the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic or some other treaty? I was never able to find a specific ISO standard for these.

Bit of a nerdy question, I know, but I figured I'm in good company.
I guess you guys can help

Governments can collapse before elections.

This future Belgian government is a huge mix of parties with opposite points of view. Socialists with liberals* and conservatives. Not to mention the number of parties involved. Such coalitions are often unstable and prone to early collapses.

* note that liberal parties in Europe are very different from liberals in the United States.

I know that; I didn't know if you knew something the rest of us didn't. Like maybe Queen Beatrix is planning an invasion on April 30. :-)

Part of the "state reform," I believe, is that the federal and regional parliaments will now be elected at the same time; I don't know if that means that one of them falling means they all do, or if they're all there for four years, like it or not (which is the case with the regions - well, actually it's five years) now.

On the first picture you can see what are the consequences of drinking Czech beer.
