4-way test at Philippine parliament

One key feature of a parliamentary form is the fusion of the legislative and executive branches of government.

Well, that finally happened yesterday at the Senate.

Almost the entire cabinet showed up to rahrah for their colleagues implicated in the ZTE scandal.

Of course, on orders of ma’am.

Which reminded me of the Rotary’s Four-Way Test:

Is it the Truth? – Tutuo bang me transaction na naman tayo?

Is it Fair to all concerned? – Lahat ba tayo kasali dyan?

Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships? – Wala bang masasagasaan dyan?

Will it be Beneficial to all concerned? – Magkano akin dyan?

Obviously the ZTE deal did not pass all the tests. Me nasagasaan!

    Yes, may nasagasaan. They run over their own feet but what’s sad, taongbayan na naman ang tatamaan. Utang nila, tayo ang magbabayad.

    served with wit, dripping with sarcasm, with a dash of vitriol and spicy irony. Served as only you can, councilor.

    Salamat sa comments Ericzoo and Schumey.
