Political POV[edit]

This article is really important, but has some real issues around lack of sourcing and very biased POV. In particular in the section about History of Flanders#Rise of the Flemish Movement which has:

  • "The Belgian Revolution was not well supported in Flanders"
  • "The French-speaking bourgeoisie showed very little respect for the Flemish part of the population."
  • "In 1834, all people even remotely suspected of being "Flemish minded" or calling for the reunification of the Netherlands were prosecuted and their houses looted and burnt."
  • "All of these events led to a silent uprising in Flanders against the French-speaking domination"
  • Jozef Schoep is described as launching a "Remarkable case"

I'm no expert, but at very least these need some excellent sources to support them and rephrasing.---Brigade Piron (talk) 13:20, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
