Are you literate Mr Minister?

I was really astounded by a news item that I happened to hear on the German televesion channel DW-TV's English news brodcast. The Defence minister was being asked to resign because there was speculation that his doctoral thesis in fact involved plageurism. To this, the minister's response was that his degree may be rescinded because actually there were parts of the dissertation which defied logic.

But wait....did they say PhD?

And here we are content with a group of ministers/Members of Parliament, few of who haven't even completed schooling. I guess the best question we can raise in Parliament is "are you literate, Mr minister?"....cause a Ph.D is beyond most.
