    There is no place for clergy in politics.

    kumisura Wednesday, 04 July 2012 12:45 PM

    Why not just scrap the parliament?

    Nodrog Thursday, 05 July 2012 05:08 AM

    Of course they will veto the motion because it will cut down their 2/3 majority.

    Sue Wednesday, 04 July 2012 01:09 PM

    Its best to keep your mouth shut when you don't know the facts rather than show your ignorance by talking rot.

    Political Illiterate Thursday, 05 July 2012 10:16 PM

    Does that change recorded history by removing title?

    Ling Wednesday, 04 July 2012 10:10 AM

    People's choice on voting who to come to power cannot be blocked.
