Aku pun malu jugak tengok live telecast. But it is a start and it will change once the MP's realise that they have to behave. Let's not forget the purpose of it, so that the rakyat can see their MP's and what are their comments and stands. It is one thing saying it on the campaign trail but it is totally another to voice out and take action.

So let the show go on......

Janji jangan macam Taiwan punya Parliament sudah. Baling kasut lah, gaduh lah. Itu foul, red card.
