Read in detail here. Tajuddin must be handled with care, as he normally goes off the handle mighty fast.

ALL Tony Pua (DAP – Petaling Jaya Utara) wanted to do was to pass a message to his party secretary-general Lim Guan Eng (DAP – Bagan) but this sparked off a furore.

Pua was sitting at Lim Kit Siang’s (DAP – Ipoh Timur) seat on Guan Eng’s right at the front row and whispering something to him when Datuk Tajuddin Abdul Rahman (BN – Pasir Salak) stood up.

“Who is that sitting at Ipoh Timur’s place? He did not bow, that’s a show of disrespect,” he said and called for Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia to give Pua a warning.

“This is not the Penang State Assembly!” Tajuddin shouted at Guan Eng, who is Penang Chief Minister, despite orders by Pandikar Amin for him to sit down.

Calling for point of order, Fong Po Kuan (DAP – Batu Gajah) asked the Speaker to make a fair decision as she had earlier witnessed a similar situation on the opposite side.

Pandikar Amin, however, allowed the shouting match to go on and when the House had finally quietened down, he said:

“Are you all happy now? Was that enough, Batu Gajah? Was that enough, Pasir Salak?” he said, to which both MPs answered yes.

Bow and scrape not in the House
