When Jose de Venecia was ousted as House Speaker, I feel that soon I see dramatic revealation of dark secrets. After all, only the thieves themselves know the secrets of thieves.
Today’s headline of Philippine Daily Inquirer, JDV details secret Arroyo-ZTE meeting, obviously very dramatic. It’s the same old story but now sugar-coated and made colorful. JDV will reportedly reveal the secret meeting of no less than the President of the Philippine and ZTE officials on Nov. 2, 2006, at the headquarters of ZTE Corp. in Shenzhen, China.
Jose de Venecia knows it because he was there! In fact, the old de Venecia can recall that they ate rice porridge and shrimp dumplings that time.
Reading the story is like listening to dramatic narrative. Or could it be a dramatic pursuits of a crook hero?
Listen to dull and ignorant, they too have their own stories to tell, Desiderata reminds me. But former Speaker Jose de Venecia, is not another whistle-blower. He was an insider; he took something; he get the share of whatever the administration “got”. No doubt on that. If the first family got millions, no doubts, de Venenia got his, too!
The ousted speaker will reportedly reveal “the secrets” on his biography, Global Filipino: The Authorized Biography of Jose de Venecia Jr., the Visionary Five-Time Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Philippines. [link]
The book, according to reports, will be launced this week Washington, D.C. JDV’s biography, written by veteran American journalist Brett M. Decker, an editor of the Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong, accordingly, devotes several chapters on the scandals in the Arroyo administration.
Great! I look forward to read the book. (If I really can.)
Many are hoping that with the revelations of de Venecia will help the majority. But with circumstances, I think JDV is more interested on his political vendetta than that of sincere intention to help cleanse Philippine political stinks.
Goodluck Congressman Jose de Venecia
