So it was no suprise to me when I read in yesterday's Die Welt about this splendid proposal,
This story I discover had been reported on EU Observer a couple of weeks ago, but I regret to say I missed it at the time. The letter included this particularly fine phrase, it noted the
In a letter, 37 MEPs asked Hans-Gert Pöttering, the President of the European Parliament, to curtail the “encouragement of prostitution by members of the EU Parliament”. Every hotel, which is used by MEPs and their staff on business trips, should give a “guarantee statement” that denies access for prostitutes to the rooms. Furthermore, MEPs should be banned from welcoming prostitutes in their hotel rooms. Pöttering’s reply is yet to be seen.
"praxis of many hotels as providers of sex trade with humans, as if they were dealing with an ordinary commodity."So is the implication that MEPs should be able to, if they so desire, engage in sex trade with machines, rocks, animals, fruit?
