A Parody

In light of recent stupidity in Parliament, I give you the following parody.

Oh, why are MPs in Parliament so Stupid?

TELEVISION dramas should depict true Malaysian culture and this means MPs should not be shown "talking stupid" to their constituents, an Opposition MP said yesterday.

Salahbina Ayat (PUS - Katakata Kosong) was unhappy that many TV dramas nowadays showed MPs replying to constituents in inappropriate language, and even shouting.

"Why can’t we produce dramas like those from Korea and Japan? These show MPs speaking respectfully to their constituents, even when they are having a disagreement," he said when debating the 2006 Budget at committee stage yesterday.

Dato’ Said Iwackhim (BM-Kata Baru) said it should apply both ways.

"If a MP should not be depicted speaking roughly to a constituent, then a constituent should also not be depicted speaking similarly to a MP.

"But the point actually is, do we want TV dramas to reflect reality or do we want them to be a means to spread stupidity?"

The Opposition leader meanwhile saw potential in an award winning drama and wanted parliamentary proceedings to be telecast live over television instead.
