If, as widely predicted, we go into Friday with no clear winner of the election, don't panic.
Around five years ago, in June 2010, Belgium elected a new parliament. No single party emerged with more than 20% of seats. Coalition discussions went on for 541 days, and after a record 589 days without an elected government, a coalition was agreed in December 2011.
On the same timescale, the UK would be without a government until 7th November 2016.
NB many Belgians enjoyed their year and a half without new laws and without political cretins grandstanding on TV.
