Zubiri on plot to unseat Sotto: 'We are happy with his leadership'The Nation's Leading Newspaper And the plot thickens Not credible. Not in the character of present Senators. Pakulo lg para mapag usapan ang tandem ni Tito, gimmick. Cheap. 😁
Sotto: I serve at the pleasure of my colleaguesIn messages to media on Sunday, he said, 'I serve at the pleasure of my colleagues. A majority of 13 may replace me anytime.' If you really have delicadeza, you need not wait to be unseated. You should step down since you’re running for higher office to avoid abuse of senate resources for your election campaign. That is why you are not a real public servant. 'I serve at the pleasure of my colleagues'. Kawawa talaga ang mga pilipino. Sa kanila kinukuha ang sweldo at kinayayaman ng mga politiko pero hindi man lang sila isali sa mga paglilingkuran at prioridad.
