Limits to masochism

The rapporteur of the Council of Europe on the linguistic feud” in Belgium apparently received insulting letters at home. Being a very wise man, he recognized that the political context was extremely sensitive and said that he does not “have the pretension, nor the audacity, to meddle into the Belgian institutional debate,” adding: “There are limits to masochism.”

Though this is making me laugh, it is sad to see that 1) no one really seems to care (not even in Belgium) and 2) none of the involved parties is willing to make the first step to solve the conflict.
