LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – It’s strike two for BBC’s Stephen Sackur. His program ‘Hardtalk’ has now featured Senator Antonio Trillanes and ousted Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno in which he pummelled them with hard-hitting questions they could hardly answer.
In response to overwhelming demand from Filipinos, Sackur has formally invited Vice President Leni Robredo to be his next guest to discuss national issues and the Duterte government.
Unfornately, Robredo declined the invitation, sayng, “No more questions, just merienda (refreshments).” To which Sackur replied, “Sure, let’s just have some tea.”
“And please bring along Georgina Hernandez. She seems like an interesting person to talk to,” Sackur added.
No word yet if Robredo has accepted.
