The Prime Minister said he was ashamed at what had transpired in the Dewan Rakyat on Wednesday and agreed that live telecast of the proceedings should be scrapped.
Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he was in the Dewan at the time, adding what happened was just “too much.”
PM: Cancel telecast in Dewan Rakyat
They're trying to taichi it and lay the blame on the name calling but truth is, if that carries on [and both sides are guilty of it], the rakyat will also get fed up of it and ask their YBs to behave themselves now that they have seen it with their own eyes.
Lulu suspects the "ashamed" incident was not the name calling but the incident when the speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia booboo-ed when he "would not allow any supplementary question as too much time had been wasted" even thought it has been the practice of the Chair to allow two or three supplementary queries after each original question slotted in the Order Paper, and only after the PM intervened [or as someone said, "main mata dulu], Pandikar Amin relented.
To be caught in action main mata and giving the speaker permission to proceed, now, that's shameful.
and hasnt the PM learnt after Mar8th that there is no point trying to suppress the truth? Whatever shameful incidents they try to block on RTM will be made known via youtube anyway.
