Leaving the Philippines presidential election to one side.

Leaving the Philippines presidential election to one side is something I am not keen to do but it’s got to the point I need to do. As a rule, foreigners are not allowed to get politically involved and although our “discussions” have been fairly neutral or reporting information that has come about. The reality is now things seem to be going in another direction.
Social media seems to be offsetting political news media and as such things are swaying backwards and forwards in for and against arguments. The recent banking issues relating to accounts as well as plundering relating to Typhoon Haiyan are all coming to the surface and as such it’s time to spectate rather than get too involved as its moved from a simple debate into a political arena.
