“Thank you Di Rupo”

“Bedankt Di Rupo”

Cars with big engines, such as supercars (think of Ferrari, Lamborghini, …), sports wagons (think of Mercedes-Benz AMG, Audi RSx or BMW Mx) or SUV’s come with a high pricetag. The bigger the engine, the more it consumes or the bigger the ecological footprint of the car, the more taxes you pay.

In Belgium it doesn’t stop with buying the car. Getting it on the road costs a lot of money due to ridiculous taxes, so only the very rich can afford it. The person who’s behind most of these taxes is Belgium’s Prime Minister, Elio Di Rupo. Politicians do drive big cars like the Audi A8 f.e. which consume easily as much as an SUV (in stead of giving to proper example and driving a Prius). But that is not the main discussion in this blog.

The funny thing about Di Rupo’s taxes is that the rich can still drive their Lamborghinis or AMG-cars, and to top it off (and probably to piss off the politicians) they put a sticker on the back saying “Bedankt Di Rupo” (which means “Thank you Di Rupo”) with a little bow tie underneath the message, because he always wears a bow tie.
