Belgian PM Guy Verhofstadt is convinced that the Belgians would have voted in favour of the Constitution.

"Moreover, Brussels is the centre of Europe, in fact we are Europe. It is impossible to vote against oneself, isn't it?" he says.

(Bovendien: Brussel is het centrum van Europa, eigenlijk zijn wij Europa. We kunnen toch niet tegen onszelf stemmen?)

Interviewed in the Flemish weekly magazine Humo, 7 June 2005.
