Quote of the week

"The automation process has changed the rules of the game and politicians who fear they can no longer manipulate poll results are more tempted to eliminate one another."

Benito Lim, a political scientist at Ateneo de Manila University, on why the addition of a more trustworthy, electronic voting system may lead to more political violence in this year's polls.

  1. The politicians in the Philippines are a great disappointment. Somehow LKY's style of political engagement did not inspire their politicians, this despite
    LKY sharing his wisdom during many state visits.

    Law suits LKY-style is always more civilised than ambushing each other in gunfights, you get to live and fight another time, even if you are jailed for 30+ yrs.
