Brussels, DC? It may sometimes be hard to notice that Brussels is not only the centre for most EU institutions. It is also the capital of Belgium. A very odd country in many ways, and the two groups of French and Flemish have little in common. The Economist suggested in a leader that the country should be abolished. A recent proposal to have a referendum on the matter was just voted down, but the issue is on the table. It would be a singular event, and the outcome could be two new states or the two parts merging with France and the Netherlands. Perhaps that is also an ideal solution for the EU capital? Brussels could become a sovereign district like Washington, DC, thereby standing free from all member states.
