EUobserver / Socks and rock and roll in EU election campaign

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - With six days to go to elections, French socialists and Libertas have begun using sex to attract attention, while a rock and roll controversy has erupted in the UK.

The youth wing of the Party of European Socialists (PES) in the Haute-Loire district in France has released an online video of a couple in bed with the slogan "Need a Change?"

The PES video suggests the parliament is currently as dull as sex with socks on

The pair first make love sluggishly to classical music, the man wearing socks and taking a condom from an EU blue-and-gold stars wrapper. In the second scene, the socks come off, he takes a condom from a red, PES-labeled wrapper and makes love vigorously to electronic music.

The pan-EU Libertas party in London on Thursday (28 May) hired topless model Amy Diamond to stand in front of Westminster painted in EU colours (gold stars on nipples) with a placard saying "We Demand Exposure." Libertas needs all the help it can get in the UK, where it is polling at less than 1 percent.
