I’m happy to see my colleagues in the Senate minority who paid me a visit this morning as a group. (Each of them had previously visited me.
We talked about various matters, from serious stuff, to mundane and funny ones.
Of course the first thing they asked is how am I doing, I didn’t have to reply to that. That I appear relaxed and stress-free is quite self-evident to them. And I’m sure my new hairdo (very short and with striking, if not shocking color) did not escape their attention. They’re just too nice to make any comment.
Seriously now, we discussted foremost the minority bloc’s legislative agenda – which bills to support and which to oppose and the way forward. My colleagues also reiterated the plan to petition the proper court to allow me to participate in the voting on major legislative measures.
I can see that this will be a truly functioning and dynamic minority.
One last thing. Absolutely no destab plan tackled as there is no such thing. Sorry to disappoint the paranoids among the Duterte sycophants…
