Belgian bj politico reneges on election pledge

Sends Japanese assistant to pleasure voters

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

NSFW We should have known: Tania Derveaux, the Belgian senate hopeful who offered to blow 40,000 voters as as a "response to incredible claims that were made by other parties in Belgium", has reneged on her election pledge.

Sadly. those who signed up for this tempting offer in the hope of some oral luuurv didn't get a hot, five-minute date with Derveaux, but rather an email explaining: "We've received more than 100,000 requests and I can't do them all on my own. So I sent my assistant, who is at least as good as I am. Enjoy..."

Bloody typical. We're certain that Belgium's electoral commission will look into this outrage and oblige Derveaux to make good her promise. As for Lin Chong, we reckon she has a great future in the White House, cancer scares notwithstanding. ®

At the time of writing, the English version of the filthy five-minute video had been viewed by just over 200,000 people and the Spanish version by over 10,000. Strangely there doesn't seem to be a version in French, Dutch, Walloon or Flemish...it's almost as though the whole thing was a hoax.
