In the name of democracy - Public Farting

When Malawi was under the rule of a dictator, people were afraid to fart in public. Since the last dictator was removed 16 years ago, the people thoroughly revel in their newfound freedom brought by democracy. 

A Malawi cabinet minister said democracy in the country has encouraged PUBLIC FARTING. It is becoming such a nuisance that the lawmakers will next week debate a law to CRIMINALISE public farting.

In 1929, a law was introduced which states "Any person who voluntarily vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour"

Justice and Constitutional Affairs minister, George Chaponda said, "The government has a right to ensure public decency. We are entitled to introduce order in the country"

Hence the amendment to the existing law is proposed which will make farting in public an offence.

The democratic government also ban long hair for men and trouser wearing for women. [from here]

Singapore is a democratic country. It is so successful that the people only need one party. Opposition has no place there because the government is so very efficient and and its people are all so happy and contented.

We succumbed to pressure. We were TOLD we were not democratic enough. We marginalised the Chinese and the Indian.

Now, who said all that?
