Police break up orgy of 25 diplomats above Brussels bar

16:39 01/12/2020

While police breaking up lockdown parties in Brussels is a more or less weekly occurrence, the latest party to violate coronavirus regulations was rather one-of-a-kind.

Police in the Brussels-Ixelles zone were confronted with a 25-person-strong orgy late on Friday night above a gay bar on Rue des Pierres. This much has been confirmed by the Brussels prosecutor’s office.

According to sources speaking to La Dernière Heure, drugs and alcohol were also part of the mix of bodies. That’s not really surprising, but the bodies in question have raised eyebrows as they belong mostly to diplomats and at least one MEP.

The MEP apparently tried to escape via a window and shimmy down a drainpipe, but, alas, police caught up with him. According to information obtained by VTM, the MEP is Hungary’s József Szájer, a member of Viktor Orbán’s far-right Fidesz party.

Identities of the people present at the sex party – mostly men – have not however been confirmed by the prosecutor’s office. It should be noted, however, that Szájer resigned as an MEP the following day, after, he said, “a long period of reflection”.

While an orgy, regardless of who is present, is certainly not illegal, gatherings of more than four people inside are in breach of coronavirus regulations. (And 24 close contacts is simply out of the question.) Therefore, all of the people present at the party will be fined.

So, let's get this into our heads, WE the SIMPLE folks of all of Europe:
We pay diplomats (this includes european commission people) and MEPs a LOT of totally tax free money to legislate (they impose all legislation for all EU countries) and affect out lives (negatively in the most part) and what is the result?

In a period of physical suffering, mental suffering, loss of jobs - property -businesses and, most of all LOSS OF MANY RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES, they get so sexually aroused by all the power and financial security WE GIVE THEM, that they behave with TOTAL disregard to the SAME laws THEY have imposed on us as well as TOTAL negligence for the lives of others and all they can think about is how to get their rocks off in an orgy!!

A simple fine is for the simple folks, for them the punishment should be severe because they are civil servants and law makers who are spiting on our face and on the face of the judicial system.

“Public exposure” would be a big penalty for a diplomat ..will the police release the names?
