At the trough

Sir: That Belgium is "run on political patronage", as reported by Sarah Helm (28 October), was confirmed this week by the Prime Minister, Jean- Luc Dehaene. Commenting on the somewhat indifferent food prepared for him at his official residence, Dehaene explained that the chef had only recently retrained and was in any case "the nephew of my secretary" (Le Vif Express, 25 October).
