Injustice has reigned supreme, and former Albay Rep. Grex Lagman is finding it hard to accept. Lagman, a lawyer, cannot believe that the impossible has happened. The Supreme Court justices have circumvented the impeachment process and ousted Maria Lourdes Sereno as Chief Justice through a quo warranto petition.
But what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and the magistrates who gave in to the Solicitor General could find themselves unseated in the same manner as well, he said.
The justices have forgotten the law, he said, but the people would not forget what “culpable violation of the constitution” means, he added.
It’s a mad world, he lamented. But he is coping with this dizzying turn of events by digging into a think, juicy steak.
Comfort food for the win!
“Politics has truly entered the realm of the possible.
Lahat ngayon pwede nang mangyari. Yung mga inaakala mong imposibleng mangyari, posible na ngayon. Huwag po kayo magtaka kung lahat ng mga (in)justices na bumoto in favor of the quo warranto petition are all eventually impeached themselves. ?
Opo, mga abogado po sila. Impossible but true na sadyang kinalimutan nila ang batas. Pero, di po namin nakakalimutan ang ibig sabihin ng “culpable violation of the constitution” mga ser at mam! ?
It’s a Mad World. ? Dadaanin ko na lang ‘to sa kain! Thanks Diego for keeping your old man company in one of the saddest days in our country’s history.
