"Answer me, you murderer!" They are tabling a motion in Parliament this Monday to suspend Gobind Singh for a year for accusing Najib Razak of murder.
Lim Kit Siang has condemned the move here but I'm not sure Gobind will get a lot of sympathy from the people if gets the suspension. We have condemned MPs for making stupid remarks in the Dewan before; we called for their blood and we likened them to monkeys, dogs and pigs.
Gobind reportedly told reporters that as MP he enjoys parliamentary immunity. I wonder if such immunity is without restrictions. Can an MP call another MP Babi, a sodomite, a lesbian, a gay, etc and get away with it? Maybe he can.
A prominent lawyer, however, thinks that the one-year suspension that Gobind may face from this Monday may be the least of his troubles. Read Imunity ahli Parlimen ada sekatan.
