Mind your language, well when you are in Brussels anyway.

City authorities in the Belgian capital will shortly be levying fines of up to €250 for insults traded on the street.

Any form of insult, whether it be racist, homophobic or otherwise, will be punishable.

Petty theft and rough jostling where no physical harm is caused will also fall foul of the new laws.
