Some may have been taken by surprise, when Solita Monsod came out in absolute, unmistakable terms against the Charter change juggernaut last week. But as I hope I will have a chance to explain sometime soon, I did not find her position unexpected. Her column today offers another argument against what she calls "world-class perfidy."
IT’S no longer just the Charter change, or "Cha-cha," that the traditional politicians are using to get people to dance to their tune. They’ve introduced the "two-step" as well, in an attempt to get the public onto the dance floor, so to speak. The dance terminology makes it sound innocuous, but make no mistake: we are talking of world-class perfidy here, being perpetrated against the Filipino people.
