Was she sent to her room without dinner?

Transport links hard to swallow

A member of the Taiwan parliament tried to eat a piece of paper containing a proposal to open direct transport links with China in an attempt to stop a vote on the issue. Members of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) were protesting against the proposed review when Wang Shuhui, a DPP member, snatched the written proposal and shoved it into her mouth. She later spat it out after opposition members failed to get her to cough it up by pulling her hair.
