Marleen Temmerman, a Socialist senator, has urged the bed partners of MPs, senators and party political leaders to keep their \”legs closed\” until the deadlock, which is closing in on a world record of 249 days, is ended.
\”I call on the spouses of all negotiators to withhold sex until a deal is reached,\” she said. \”Have no more sex until the new administration is posing on the steps of the palace.\”
Catherine Fonck, a Christian democrat senator, rejected the call.
\”I don\’t want to take part in a sex strike,\” she said. \”Politicians are not there to strike, on the contrary, politicians are there arouse the country.\”
Rare that I agree with two politicians at the same time.
