There’s nothing like a good scrap between people that should know better to get the pulse racing. Youtube is chock-a-block with chav fights and drunken brawls, but they make me feel horrible to the core if I accidentally watch them. Politicians however, with their pasty faces and buttoned up shirts bring an air of ridiculosity to it that takes me to a much more pleasant place.
So this bust up in the parliament of Taiwan really cheered me up. Discussions came to a halt after dozens of politicians from the ruling Kuomintang party clashed with opposition MPs as both groups tried to seize the chamber’s podium. The Taiwanese parliament was at one time renowned for scuffles but it’s been fairly chilled recently. This ruckus revolved around whether a controversial capital gains tax on share trading should be changed despite having been in place for less than 12 months.
On a lighter note, it’s good to see that both sexes are fairly evenly represented and that they are just as happy to give a slap as to receive one.
