Ping, May Panawagan sa mga Nagbibigay ng Maling Impormasyon sa Pangulo Tungkol sa Bakuna

Huwag bigyan ng maling impormasyon ang Presidente tungkol sa bakuna, dahil hindi siya kabute na sa madilim na lugar pinapalaki at hindi nakikita kung ano ang ipinapakain.

Ito ang panawagan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa mga nagbigay sa Pangulo ng impormasyon na hindi agarang mapapadalhan ng European Union ang bakuna laban sa COVID-19.

“Don’t treat the President like a mushroom – kept in the dark and fed with S*^t,” mariing banggit ni Lacson.

Lacson to Those Who Fed President False Info: Don’t Treat Him Like a Mushroom

“Don’t treat the President like a mushroom – kept in the dark and fed with S*^t.”

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson scored the great disservice done to the nation by those responsible for feeding the President false information on the exclusion of the Philippines by the European Union from the vaccine distribution.

The EU had reassured that the Philippines is exempted from such an export ban.

On the Decision of the Administration Not to Accept the Billion-Peso Grant from EU

It only shows a significant shift in the country’s foreign policy under the Duterte administration, which is apparently a declaration of independence from the influence of the west, i.e. US and EU, who are using grants and trade as the proverbial stick and carrot.

It also speaks volumes about the President’s determined position to stand up against the traditional patrons of former colonies like the Philippines.

I am not ready to say this early if this is the right direction of our foreign policy. Only time can tell if it will do our country right or not, or if it is all worth giving a chance to be tested.

If only we do not have a territorial dispute with China, it is easier to concede that it is all worth the gamble.
