As like the rest of millions of Filipinos outside the country, I was keenly awaiting news updates on the Maguindanao Massacre, on the Presidential Proclamation 1959 declaring Martial Law in Maguindanao the ongoing debates in the joint session of congress.
They were supposed to revoke it, approve or extend it.
I was watching the news on ANC when I saw Rep. Teddy Boy Locsin, Jr. and Rep. Dilangalen in a heated argument. I became a bit confused. It seems like Dilangalen was opposing the said proclamation but on the other side of the floor, Teddy Boy, from what I read from his mouth issued a sure “put#%$#mo!” obviously referring to Dilangalen.
I didn’t quite get it.
Why would Teddy Boy be so mad at Dilangalen for his alleged forum shopping? If it is forum shopping, so what? Maybe the guy really just hate martial law. I probably would do the same. I was just surprised why , of all people, Teddy Boy would go in defense of Proclamation 1959.
I guess I couldn’t believe that he’ll go PRO martial law.
Here’s a copy of his speech. Take it as it is.
