Debate Is Not Our Culture ?

Wow.. This really takes the cake. Najib has made many announcement that makes him look like 5 year old kid. But the one he made about "Debate" not being our culture is the best so far.

What the hell is he doing if not debating motions in the parliament. Or the BN law makers think its a place for them to sleep and thats what they have been doing all the while.

Debate is contention in argument, dispute, controversy, discussions especially the discussion of questions of public interest in Parliament or in any assembly.
