Taiwan minister quits over off-colour joke

TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan's examination minister resigned on Wednesday after sparking outrage by making a lewd joke at a staff party. Mr Lai Feng-wei was heavily criticised by women's groups and others after reportedly making the sexually suggestive remarks during a ministry party last month. According to the Taipei-based Apple Daily, when Mr Lai was asked to pick winners in a prize draw he used the off-colour language, which included: 'Deeper, deeper.' He apologised to the public during a press conference but criticism continued and he tendered his resignation to President Ma Ying-jeou.
