    How not to run an election campaign

    I put this in anti-productivity because it is just so stupid and should be read as just a piece if fun and how not to run an election campaign. These are the people who ran the country from 1986 to 2016.

    Philippine elections next year so they formed an opposition alliance of Liberal Party, Catholic Church and the Communist Party. Called 1Sambayan.

    1) They announce 8 people who will be their nominations for the elections. Five of these people immediately ask for their names to be removed.

    2) In the week the communists killed a well known football player by planting a landmine to kill any random person going down it (over 60,000 dead in their insurgency so far) not a good time to partner with the Communist Party especially when you claim to be defending democracy.

    3) They launch an app that only gets 3000 uploads globally. Security is shown to be non existent so the data of those 3000 is wide open and the app is shut down.

    Sounds like the beginnings of a Monty Python script to me ...

    I saw an article describing this as a circus but that is really unfair to circuses. This is verging on insane.

    Manny Pacquiao is the president of the PDP-Laban party, Duterte's party.

    There was some falling out and there are moves to remove him.

    Manny then turns anti-Duterte.

    The LIBERAL party then say they are open to having Manny run as their presidential candidate.
    Manny "homosexuals are worse than animals" and a strong supporter of the death penalty standing for the Liberals.
    .
    Why would they consider him? Because he is running at 12% in the polls and Robredo the assumed leader of the Liberal Party is on 5 to 8%.

    Corbyn having been ousted from leading the Labour Party is considered by the Conservatives as their next leader.

    Trump is taking over as leader of the Democratic Party.
