LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – The Adobo Chronicles has just learned that Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo has been invited back to the London School of Economics.
Many will recall that Robredo was featured as a guest speaker at LES earlier this year.
However, the new invitation to Robredo is not for a speaking engagement.
Rather, Robredo will be asked to participate in an educational seminar on world currency.
Just this week, Robredo call on the the Duterte Administration and economic managers to explain to the Filipino people why the Philippine peso has dipped so fast and so low against the U.S. dollar. Critics have called her “clueless.”
Apparently, LES thought it proper to re-invite Robredo (now considered a speaker alumnus) so that she is better informed about laws and principles on economics, especially as they pertain to world currency.
”We don’t want her to be embarrassing herself and our school, an LES spokesperson said.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For someone who has been accused of lifting parts of Robert F. Kennedy’s speech for his own use in the Philippine Senate, Tito Sotto sure knows a lot about plagiarism.
Sotto has sent a message to the Inquirer asking that articles posted on its website regarding the Pepsi Paloma rape case, be taken down.
The articles, written by U.S.-based Inquirer columnist Rodel Rodis, insinuated that the Senator tried to exert some whitewashing over the case which involved Sotto’s brother Vic, and Joey of the Tito, Vic and Joey television tandem.
The Adobo Chronicles spoke to Sotto during a recess of yesterday’s Senate Session and asked him what his next move would be.
”If Inquirer doesn’t take down the articles, I have no choice but to sue them for plagiarism.”
(We think Sotto meant to say libel.)
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – For someone who has recently been invited to speak at the London School of Economics, Vice President Leni Robredo sure has a lot to say about the economy, especially about the ‘sinking’ Philippine peso.
Just yesterday, Robredo asked the Duterte Administration and economic managers to explain why the value of the peso has dipped so fast and so low.
Today, she proposed that the Philippines replace its official currency with the U.S. Dollar.
”Since the U.S. Dollar is very strong, it would be to a great advantage for the Philippines and the Filipinos to shift to the American currency. It will solve a lot of our economic problems and eliminate poverty in the country. It will truly result in ‘Angat Buhay’ “
If Robredo’s proposal is adopted, Filipinos will soon all be spokening dollars!
