MP for Kinabatangan Bung Mokhtar Radin out to be ashamed of himself. Yesterday, he urged the government to act against ‘insiders’ who reveal information to Internet blogs and news portals.
This was the MP, who in 2001, used the “F” word in Parliament. I attended the session that day in the August house and felt so embarassed that an MP was so rude and shameless. What an embarassment not only to his constituency but to the people in Sabah and Malaysians as a whole.
I wrote the story about his antics. He was forced to apologised but he did it so reluctantly.

The late speaker Mohamed Zahir said he would ask Bung Moktar to make an “unconditional apology” to the House and that his action was unprecedented.
“This is serious, the F-word should not be used at all in any circumstances,” said the veteran speaker.
This so-called elected representative often causes much controversy in the house. He is a loose canon and I suspect he is often being used to spew out the government’s view, which BN officials are too ashamed to spit out.Therefore, when he asked why blogs and portals were not monitored and whether there are laws to regulate them:
“Has the police investigated these Internet sources? I wonder where these sources get their information from, how do they know from A to Z of every matter they report. The leakage of information to Internet sources must have come from insiders”.
The right response to that would be “There should be stringent laws actually to regulate species like him in Parliament”.
