Belgium back to crisis

Several news sources report that Belgian prime minister Leterme has offered his resignation tonight:
Belgian media say Prime Minister Yves Leterme has offered his resignation after his government failed to agree on more self-rule for Belgium's Dutch and French-speaking camps.

Leterme who has been in office since 20 March 2008 has led a 5-party-coalition that was meant to produce national unity. It seems as if this project has failed.


According to TV, the king of Belgium has refused the resignation.

No kidding. I would refuse the resignation, too. After spending all that time agreeing on a coalition, he wants to give up now?
