Why GLOBE is like your typical Philippine Politician

By N Mark Castro

Sympathizing with my friend, his GLOBE subscription has yet to manifest its promise … it’s so eerily similar to what traditional politicians say during this upcoming Philippine elections yet fail to deliver.

  1. My friend with a Smart line is experiencing the same thing,so same lang.

  2. If that’s your basis for likening them to politicians, isn’t PLDT group doing worse for promising that no oone will get laid off with the Digitel-PLDT merging? And yet hundreds of Digitel employees,if not thousands,recently lost their jobs due to the merging? Now that is a lot worse. That’s one promise broken that shattered a lot of lives.

    • Imagine that. Two telcos managing the entire 100 million Filipino and served on the other side of equally incompetent politicians.

      And come elections, you can almost always guarantee already the names of who would win: Binay, Estrada, Angara, Poe, Villar … fun.
