there’s this theory that brian gorrell is in cahoots with the gma administration and that his infamous blog is meant to distract us all from the nbn-zte scandal that’s been giving ate glue sleepless nights.
i doubt it. sa totoo lang, i would think that the oligarchs are far from happy about the spotlight that’s been thrown on the wickedly decadent lifestyles of their rich and famous brats (and their climber friends ). i would think that the oligarchs are getting kinda nervous given the hundreds of thousands of visits brian’s blog gets every week and the hundreds of commenters joining the fray, adding fuel to a fire that could spread and devour them all.
terribly karmic the timing, i’d say, considering that nbn-zte whistleblower jun lozada has been going around the country giving lectures a la romulo neri on the yawning gap between rich and poor in this third world country where the oligarchy rules. in fact i wouldn’t be at all surprised if pressure is put to bearon the gucci gang’s families to raise the money and pay up, the sooner to shut the blog down. they would be crazy not to, though i wouldn’t mind if they don’t. there’s something terrifically poetic, and epic, about the (in)justice of it all.
