Volodymyr Rybak

Why isn’t our parliament this exciting?

The last time we had some biffo Tau Henare took a dive and Trevor Mallard scored bragging rights despite it all being over some bint.

The Ukrainians really do know how to get into the biff:

THE UKRAINIAN parliament dissolved into chaos yesterday – as a mob of furious politians came to blows.

Supporters of president Viktor Yanukovych brawled with opposition MPs as they attempted to vote for a speaker.

Lawmakers wrestled with each other and some were knocked to the floor in the violent melee, on just the second day of the new parliament.

One man was restrained by being held in a tight headlock, while others climbed on to the speaker’s stand before being pushed off.

But heavyweight boxing champion Vitaly Klitschko, who heads the UDAR party, chose not to join in the brawl.

After a break, Yanukovych ally Volodymyr Rybak was elected as speaker.
