The Twitterverse responds to the 8th Legislative Council

Greetings Readers! The Nation's eight legislative council meetings are currently underway. Last week, the local papers announced that there would be an open day on Saturday 3rd March 2012. I locked it into my diary. I have never been before so I did not know what to expect. I have watched and listened to many Parliamentary meetings back in Australia so I went to the Saturday session half expecting lively discussion, questioning and debate. I suited up (note: strict dress codes apply) and sat in for the said session. I have been researching about the history and expectations of Brunei's Legislative Council since. Here's a good place to start.

Another great place to start is on Twitter. Asides from #HBT2012 (the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy), a lot of the buzz across the past few days has centred around the 8th Legislative Council sessions. The Brunei Times and their reporters have been current and speedy with their updates from within the sessions through hashtag #LegCo8.

Some screen shots of discussions to date.
