Lulu's MP, stood up on two occasions during question time the first day, hoping to pose supplementary questions to some of the other queries raised. He takes it in good stride that he is unlikely to get a chance as supplementary questions during Question Time in the morning are usually limited to 2, and priorities tend to be given to those who are more senior in Parliament.
It seems to be quite a common problem for newbie MPs according to this article in the Stay Work cut out for newbie MPs.
One of the complaints from the newcomers was the difficulty getting spotted by the Speaker for a chance to ask a supplementary question or to interject during a debate.Chua Tee Yong (BN – Labis) has been trying for two weeks now, but has not had any luck.“I have not counted the number of times I have stood up. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to debate next Tuesday,” he said.In the case of N. Gobalakrishnan (PKR – Padang Serai), persistence finally won the attention of Deputy Speaker Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar. But things turned comical when he sat down just as his name was called.“Yang Berhormat duduk pulak (You have now sat down instead),” chided Wan Junaidi gently.Gobalakrishnan apologised saying he had not expected to be called after standing numerous times without success.Khairy Jamaluddin, one of the names often mentioned in coffeeshops when discussing why BN kalah teruk, makes it seem so easy. Afterall, he got to interrupt when Lim Kit Siang, Nasharuddin Mat Isa, Wan Azizah, Haji Tajuddin Abdul Rahman and Shahrir Samad were speaking.
btw, it's not like he's speaking intelligently either. He was cut down to size by Uncle Kit the other day, and today, he's ranting about PKR being Projek Khinzir Raksasa, forgetting that it was under UMNO's administration that a delegation had a lawatan sambil belajar to 3 countries, AND approved the project.
The thing is, the speaker calls him so often, it's beginning to look suspisious.
Pray tell Lulu, what's so special about this 1st time MP from Rembau that he gets called upon so often?
Considering how many times Khairy was allowed to interject someone's speech, Khairy's refusal to make way in debate truly reflects what a brat he is.
Lulu love-love-love the responses from the other MPs
Zulkifli Noordin (PKR-Kulim Bandar Baru) stood up and said: "If scared, then don't be an MP. Might as well as just switch on the tape (recorder)."
Mahfuz Omar (Pas-Pokok Sena) then suggested that Khairy read his speech to Kemas kindergarten children if he did not wish to be interrupted before saying that PBN stood for Projek Babi Nasional (National Pig Project), drawing laughter in the House.
