The Squeaky Wheel Gets the Oil

And the rusty trombone gets the mouthpiece. Or whatever... It seems hotel workers in Strasbourg are no obliged to police the private lives of Ministers of European Parliament, because it seems that many of them have to buy what their personalities can't provide otherwise: whatever preferred form of nookie they it is that gets their great deliberative body off.

It also seems that they have a Reaganite, aspirational streak, looking to be more than they are themselves:

"The parliamentarians are not interested in street prostitutes. They prefer escort girls, call girls of a slightly higher level. They find little adverts and make telephone calls. That's how they take care of business," the NGO's Isabelle Collot said.

- Via Brussels Journal, who suggest that MEPs

deserve as much regulation as their victims.
