They've been taking lessons from Taiwan
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).
