Psychiatrist Chua Soi Lek was, until a few days ago, Malaysia’s health minister. He has been booted out of his job and his party after a video appeared of him having sex with ‘a friend’.
Needless to say his wife and three children were even less impressed that the rest of the country.
Whilst it is understood that politicians all over the world seem bent on making an art form out of incompetence and immorality, it yet almost beggars belief that a psychiatrist could ever have been chosen as a minister for health. Absolutely bizarre. Like putting Jack the Ripper in charge of female morals.
The other unusual aspect of this case is that it appeared in the video that this psychiatrist was involved in consensual sex. That is yet to be confirmed by the ‘friend’.
