LIBERAL PARTY stalwart and DOTC Sec. Joseph Abaya confirmed DILG Sec. Mar Roxas would be the LP’s standard bearer in 2016. Partymates describe Roxas as a good choice. Political observers described the decision as a “no choice.”
Liberal Party stalwart Joseph Abaya says Sec. Mar Roxas “will carry the flag for the LP” in the 2016 presidential elections. Unless, of course, something unfortunate happens to the popular mother or father of another LP member. (But nobody wants that to happen. Not the LP members and definitely not Korina Sanchez.)
Malacañang on Wednesday clarified that President Aquino has yet to choose the Liberal Party’s standard bearer for 2016. The President wants someone who is honest, decent, and ready to accept defeat.
The weather bureau has declared that summer has officially started. It’s the dry season. Or as President Aquino calls it, “My sex life.”

The tipsters who provided information that led to the arrest of top communist leaders last weekend will reportedly receive 11.2 million pesos. The AFP denied rumors that the reward is subject to 10 percent revolutionary tax.
A “sudden braking” accident at the MRT 3 Wednesday morning, which injured a dozen passengers was blamed on the driver. The MRT management says the driver has been in the service for only six months. Apparently, his blunder was due to inexperience. The driver was identified only by his nickname, Noynoy.
Gwen and Chris
After 10 years of marriage, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front man Chris Martin separated – in a move they called “conscious uncoupling.” Lawmakers should follow their lead and consciously uncouple from their corrupt practices.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have called it quits. Gwyneth will reportedly speak soon about their marital problems on TV together with her sisters Ballsy, Pinky, and Viel Paltrow.
‘Conscious uncoupling’ has become a top trending topic. Apparently, everyone has had some (funny) ‘conscious uncoupling’ experience. You can ‘consciously uncouple’ from anyone or anything, anytime and anywhere – except in the MRT.
Gwyneth Paltrow has decided to separate from Chris Martin. Gwyneth is now part of Russia.
When Sen. Cynthia Villar heard that Ruby Tuason had ties with the Napoleses, she was really surprised. Her face had difficulty showing it but she was.

De Lima’s Ex

Erwin Tulfo sued the Philippine Daily Inquirer for libel. He is demanding 12 million pesos in damages from the Inquirer. That’s huge. If he wins, he doesn’t have to solicit ads from NABCOR anymore.
Broadcast journalist Erwin Tulfo sued the Philippine Daily Inquirer for libel. Tulfo said the news report titled, Payoffs to media bared was “very damaging” to his integrity. Now that’s how you deliver a punchline.
