And the first one to stop clapping will be shot

A rather old fashioned approach to audience control seems to have been used at this meeting in the Renaissence Hortel in Brussels when German EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger was speaking today,
the German official's staff had sent an email stating that no-one could be allowed to enter the conference room after Oettinger had arrived. It also said that no-one could leave until he had left.
rather splendidly,
Ironically, Oettinger himself was late arriving for the event before delivering a 20-minute speech to an audience of stakeholders.
Oh the manners.
