Political correctness gone mad?

2009 is proving to be the year of the minority. Barack Obama became the first black man to rule the US, and Iceland appointed the world's first openly gay head of state. Now many countries are racing to see who can claim other "firsts".

In Belgian, national elections have been moved forward by a year, and a disabled man, Pierre Legume, has been elected their new Prime Minister. Mr Legume is in a persistent vegetative state and can only communicate through moving his eyebrows. He has been described as "the Belgian Stephen Hawking, but without the intelligence".

He has promised "to rescue Belgium from the financial...." but the press conference ended before he could complete his sentence.

Slovakian elections are due to begin next week, where a horse is standing for president.
