Political ethics

NZ's political news

An MP helped a thai immigrant applicant on his NZ work visa in exchange of cheaper house renovation rates (re-tiling). Same MP Pocketing of 100 NZD worth of donations.

Miss Clark said it would be hard for Mr Field to continue in the job.

"It's very hard to come back from something like that because the degree of public humiliation has been pretty high," she said.

100NZD... that's not even 5000php ! Yet he's pressured to resign out of "shame".

In the Philippines:

Mass demonstration in Ayala avenue calling for the President elect to step down. People in the demonstration includes former President Corazon Aquino and some senatorial figures. I don't think PGMA would resign even if Jesus, Buddha and Allah joined the demonstration/s.

I hope that my other absurd political prediction doesn't come true. Senator Jimmy Santos.

Nobody quantifies "love" like him... not even William Shakespeare. Tell me who can beat this phrase ? "I LOVE YOU 3x a DAY".

Former action star Senator Lapid made senator, will there be a Sen. Manny Pacquiao in 15-20 years time ? Time and collective maturity will tell.

    Senator Paquiao, I wouldn't be surprised at all. I heard he's prepping up for a vice mayor spot here in Manila.

    Manny Pacquiao running for any public office seat is a nightmare. Aalis na talaga ako if mangyari yon!

    PS...crash ako sa bahay niyo ha!

    senor enrique -> Manila na ba ? I thought vice governor sa province nila. Let me guess under PGMA's political party ano ?

    char -> No problem. If you can get your pseudo BF's permission (Jovs). :)

    Itong post yata dapat ang may title na "divine comedy" Vin! The entire political system in the Philippines is one big joke.

    Pag-agawan ba daw si Char?

    Ladybug -> "hay nako...sana wag matuloy ang mga yan. kakatakot naman mangyayari sa pinas."

    Isn't this what people were saying when erap ran for president ? I sincerely hope Pacman sticks to boxing. He's been reported gambling big sums of money on cockfights, Oks lang coz it's his earnings naman.

    I wish a demonstration would get President Bush to step down.

    "People Power" is something we need in the United States. Here, most people don't care enough to exercise their power.

    Under-educated and over-spoiled. That best describes most of us (generaly speaking).
