updates, Sunday 20/4
I wish the Editors at the Star had linked its Page 1 story Your Questions? to the blog that broke that story, which is E-Woon's I am a Malaysian (www.iamamalaysian.wordpress.com). When I take stories and pictures from newspapers, I attribute it to them. It was one of the first things they teach you in the newsroom.
Apart from that, it is good to see that DAP's old hand Lim Kit Siang wasted no time in taking to task the five DAP Members of Parliament who did not submit any question for the first session of the new Parliament which starts next week. Read his posting: 5 DAP MPs did not submit a single question to Paliament - apologies.
Ask no lies, get no questions. The Dewan Rakyat session, which starts end of this month, is an opportunity for Members of Parliament freshly elected in last month's general election to ask the Government questions. They can ask anything; they enjoy parliamentary immunity to do so.
But as blogger E-Woon discovered, we have MPs who won't even do the basic required of them. I'd excuse the recently-dropped Ministers (Rafidah Aziz, for example, has been providing answers to questions asked for years and years, so she may have forgotten how to ask them questions) but click H E R E to find out who the 29 are anyway.
