Finally....

So the impeachment process has started and on the morning of GMA's State of the Nation address.

I hope for the sake of the reputation of The Philippines that GMA does stay in power until such time as she is either legally removed or finishes her term in office. It doesn't say much for a countries democratic or legal process when they tend to oust their leader with street demonstrations...Marcos - I think the world understood; Estrada - the world vaguely understood and smiled....one more - that just smacks of a total disregard for the constitution of the country.

In the words of Oscar Wilde through Lady Bracknell...

"To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."

I agree with both the above comments....In order for the Philippine democracy to be taken seriously in the future the way that GMA possible departure from power is handled is of the utmost importance.

Which is why the Philippines will screw it up. The real issue is who do they have of stature, who can unite the nation and deal with the security threat they have in the south.

It can't work in actual fact, that's what I think.
