NRC editor-in-chief writes book about band Dutch and Flemish people
Editor-in-chief Peter Vandermeersch of the NRC writes a book about the relationship between Dutch and Flemish people. The book will be published in september.
It reports The Parool Thursday.
The book is about the love-hate relationship between Flemish and Dutch and is called I Would Love to Love You. It is intended to be Dutch, a personal mirror to keep and Flemish people to explain about our country.
According to the newspaper feels Vandermeersch is still ‘a strange duck in the bite’ since he was seven years ago in Amsterdam came to live. Because he was at the NRC went to work, he moved from Brussels to Amsterdam.
Said earlier Vandermeersch in The World Runs By the following: “We Flemish have the sometimes very difficult because that we are not to be taken seriously by the Dutch.” Now he also says that the Dutch of Flemish, but they do not respect it. Flemish people respect the Dutch, but don’t like them.
According to the editor-in-chief is the sin that we are our neighbours not more serious, “because we can make each other understand enrich.”
