â€œKung kinakailangang baklasin, babaklasin namin, (If we have to tear things down, we’ll tear things down.â€ This was Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Bayani Fernando’s ultimatum to the developers of the Skyway that has turned the South Luzon Expressway anything but. (Well, it still goes to South Luzon, so there’s that.) He’s given them until Sunday to ease traffic along the highway or the MMDA will step in.
Take that, Philippine National Construction Corp. chief Maite Defensor, daughter of arch-fiend and Quezon City Rep. Matias Defensor, Jr.! I guess your approach of giving motorists a toll discount instead of, you know, clearing the road doesn’t work after all.
The Indolent Indio has not been kind to Chairman BF, and this display of brass balls does not make him less of a douchebag, but he’s a douchebag we can respect (for now.)
