Well now, the result of last week's competition when we asked you to find a derogatory term for the Belgians. Well, the response was enormous and we took quite a long time sorting out the winners. There were some very clever entries. Mrs. Hatred of Leicester said, "Let's not call them anything; let's iust ignore them!" And a Mr. St. John . . . said he couldn't think of anything more derogatory than "Belgians." But in the end we settled on three choices:
Number three: "The Sprouts" sent in by Mrs. Vicious of Hastings. Very nice!
Number two: "The Phlegms" from Mrs. Child Molester . . . .
But the winner was undoubtedly from Mrs. No Supper for You from Norwood in Lancashire: "Miserable Fat Belgian Bastards!"
