Yesterday, Channel News Asia posted an article about Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad who said he would “work 36 hours a day” if it was possible.

Along with their article was a picture of Dr Mahathir himself.

Some Singaporean netizens took it upon themselves to edit the picture in the article, changing it to a picture of a session in Parliament with only five Ministers in attendance.

These records, along with the attendance list of each parliamentary sitting, are available to members of the public.
