cest SCANDALEUX...la belgique se transforme dans un pays totalitaire, dans lequel le gouvernement et belgacom se permettent de prendre cette catastrophe comme pretexte de surveiller sa population. Cela va COMPLETEMENT contre les valeurs des peres fondateurs de la belgique, qui voulaient une societe libre, liberale et bourgeoise....ou un gouvernemt est dirige par un parlement fort. A ce que je vois, le gouvernement belge est un theatre de pouppees en voie dune dictature. Avec la Flandre en premier....Heureusement je vis dans une VRAI DEMOCRATIE ou la surveillance de la population est interdite. Pauvre Belgique
