From the front page of today’s Pravda:
The first sitting of Malaysia’s new Parliament turned into a three-ring circus yesterday. Trading insults, opposition MP Karpal Singh called Barisan Nasional MP Bung Mokhtar Radin “Bigfoot”, only to be called “Big Monkey” in return. […] Complaining that Parliament is not a circus, the information minister said he is reconsidering live TV coverage of the proceedings.
If anything, they should be screening more of this, not less. It’d be more entertaining than Big Brother (and it’d probably rate higher as well).
