Chew on this


Pandemonium broke out in Taiwan's parliament yesterday, when deputies attacked a woman colleague for snatching and trying to eat a proposal on opening direct transport links with China in an attempt to stop a vote on the issue.

Lawmakers of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) charged toward the podium and protested noisily to prevent the review of an opposition proposal seeking an end to decades-old curbs on direct air and shipping links with China.

Amid the chaos, DPP deputy Wang Shu-hui snatched the written proposal from an opposition legislator and shoved it into her mouth, television news footage showed.
