MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Antonio Trillanes have had the luxury of traveling to other countries for speaking engagements and for personal reasons. But now, both face some challenges. Their Visas have been cancelled!
Unvetted sources tell The Adobo Chronicles that the Visa cards of Robredo and Trillanes, ending in xxxx1234 and xxxx6666, respectively, were compromised. Visa cancelled their credit cards to prevent further unauthorized or fraudulent use.
But no worries, both still have their MastetCard and American Express cards, so the traveling continues unabated.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – After all, Leni Robredo has some delicadeza left in her. She is promising to vacate her position as Vice President if none of the Otso Diretso Senatorial candidates makes it to the top 12 in Monday’s Philippine midterm elections.
While this may be wishful thinking on the part of many Filipinos, they are hoping that Robredo will be woman enough to take full responsibility for a possible zero win for the eight Opposition candidates. She has taken on the responsibility of “leading the Opposition,” but a zero win for the Otso would mean a failure of that leadership.
Already, Otso has scored zero in as far as the endorsement by the block-voting Iglesia Ni Cristo is concerned. None in the Opposition slate made it to the INC endorsement. Is this a foreboding of what will happen on May 13?
