Panic in the air
The amount of official drivel that has permeated the air just in the last few days has been extraordinary, ever since Vice President Leni Robredo gobsmacked the administration, particularly its swaggering old boys’ club, by accepting President Duterte’s dare for her to join the antidrug campaign.
How did Malacañang frame again that surprise invitation to Robredo? “If she wants it, she is the antidrug czar,” declared presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo. “Basta si VP Leni ang in charge so whatever she feels that should be enforced, we will do it.”
