Memo to LP

Lakas ng Bayan (Laban) was the original political aggrupation founded by no less than Ninoy himself to fight the monolith MARCOS KBL in 1978, 6 years after ML was declared.

Remember the Ninoy interview by Ronnie Natanielz? The streets of MM were deserted presaging every fight of Manny Pacquiao where traffic was at a standstill. Lakas ng Bayan vs KBL was suntok sa buwan: biblical in proportion ala David and Goliath. The Rules are stacked vs Laban: block voting; Comelec Chairman Leonardo Perez; stuffed ballot boxes; vote buying etc

Nene was one of the candidates of Laban representing Mindanao. PDP or partidong demokratikong pilipino was a post-EDSA creation appending LAKAS ng BAYAN as part of its identity.

Cory never rode on it not a bit of consuelo de bobo. Instead she played along with Monching Mitra’s Laban ng Demokratikong Pilipino (LDP). Then came Lakas Tao of FVR morphing into LAKAS-CMD of Raul Manglapus.

Had not Jojo Binay been derailed by Koko, Binay would have been the standard bearer of PDP LABAN. Binay was a generous financier of the struggling party prior to 2015. Nene always joked that all members of LP can fill a Bettle while PDP, a tricycle. Today, members of PDP-Laban are bursting at the seams of LRT-MRT light rails combined.

Lakas ng Bayan evolved into three political parties that Ninoy never imagined it to be. Ironically, the Dutertes, a power dynamo from the South with a less than spotless record as staunch defender of the Rule of Law, hold the flute of PDP-Laban inveigling its members to the Davao Dynasty coronation in 2022.

We need Pacquiao to convince Koko to team up with the LP’s Leni Robredo in 2022: Leni-Manny for the sake of Momi Di…
