This is actually funny in a twisted way-- Basically, our newly-elected parliament has kicked-off its parliamentary sessions and *of course* our parliamentarians are *eager* to show their competence, worthiness, and effectivenss in handing the major problems of the country.
So, as any normal human being, I assumed, innocently, that among the first issues to be discussed in parliament would be, for example, the report of the Audit Court which exposed rampant corruption in the government.. or at least something that is a national concern like illegal naturalization, illegal acquisition of land, illegal reclamation and destruction of our marine environment, Bandar-gate, to name a few. I was wrong. The FIRST question posed by a parliament member is about..... the TRANSSEXUALS! The honorable Mr. Abdulla Al-Dosari (an "independent") is planning to question the Minister of Education about the increasing number of transsexuals in schools!!!!!!!!!!!
I first thought this was a joke! I mean, OK we have transsexuals and that is not good, but is this really the priority of our country? For God's sake! The government actually gave parliament the audit report on a silver platter, and what is the first things this genius think about? transsexuals taking over our schools..! Way to go, Mr MP! Can't wait to hear your next question (one can only guess........)
