South Korean parliament descends into mass brawl

South Korea's politicians descended into a large scale brawl, building a furniture blockade as the government pushed through the 2011 budget.

12:03PM GMT 08 Dec 2010

The 2011 budget will be 309.1 trillion won (£174 billion), slightly smaller than the 309.6 trillion won proposed by the government, the Finance Ministry said in a statement, although it is about six per cent per cent more than this year's budget of 292.8 trillion won.

The defence budget was increased to 31.4 trillion won after North Korea shelled a South Korean island last month, triggering a tense standoff that has drawn in the United States and China. Calling government members of parliament "lapdogs", opposition members from the Democratic Party blockaded parliament offices and the main hall for a second day and parliamentary guards were brought in to restore order.

I will walk through the following series of photos

Stage I: Surge

Ruling party members trying to break through opposition's barrier.

Stage II: Breach

Ruling party members broke the barrier and came into the main hall of legislature.

Stage III: Opposition's Last Stand

They assembled on a podium, featuring protest signs.

Stage IV: big guys arrive

Ruling Party leaders finally enter the hall, overseeing the fights around them.

Stage V: Cleaning up the podium

Opposition members are dragged out by surging ruling party members.

Female members in action

Ruling party female members drag out opposition's female members. A woman wearing glasses and white jacket is a rabid leftwing legislator. She reportedly collapsed and was brought out in a stretcher, but some suspect that she is faking it.

“One GNP member was taken to hospital after being hit on the head with a gavel during the scuffle.”

Nasty Pelosi only has a short time to emulate this act!

Stick figures like Pelosi and eunuchs like Reid would not survive such.....ah......debate.

Love it. Bring back the duels!

SO.... The lefties over there are no different than the lefties over here.

This is when it is good to be in the majority. I fully expect the left to pull such shenanigans if a truly conservative government is ever elected here in the US.

The thought of Maxine Waters or Sheila Jackson Lee throwing a similar hissy fit is simply delicious.

I’d like to see our Republicans drag the Democrats out of the next ‘closed’ meeting they have, kicking and screaming like little spoiled children who are so upset because they didn’t get their way.

Let me guess the opposition is trying to kowtow to NK by opposing the higher military budget?

Fist fights and turmoil were happening in the US Congress prior to the outbreak of the Civil War. A precursor perhaps.

Great post.

With their knowledge of martial arts, these fights can/should be on pay tv.

The women in the ruling party seem very capable of handling themselve.

I have all ways felt that we need similiar actions in our congress and state legislative bodies. So when one of Nancy Boy’s or Barney’s guys starts their bs and tearing down society, just have a good free for all.

I much preferred the old brawls in Taiwan’s parliament involving the 80+ year-old KT legislators for life ramming each other with their wheel chairs and trying to snatch each others’ oxygen bottles.

They’ve all died off but it sure was fun watching those geezers get it on with each other.

Should we send them copies of “Roberts’ Rules of Order,” or just relax and enjoy the show?

This is what Obama envisioned for our Congress when he said he wanted Hand to Hand combat.
