President Duterte of Philippines is our hero (Page 2)
ShakespeareanJ: No it's very complicated. I understand the British one though. In Britain there is an awful lot of laughing at, scorn and disgust directed at our own democracy but when you come to China and you see what they have and what they don't have then you really can tell how much better and how much more advanced society is, broken though Britain seems to be.

ShakespeareanJ: maybe john smith but he was always too good to be a politician. Ardern seems to the outside world to be a breath of fresh air, especially in the wake of the mosque massacre. what does she make of Duterte I wonder
itsmehere1001: Yeah I thought Tony Blair was ok at the time but it turned at that he was just as full of shit as Bush. 2 governments lying to the public about WMD so they could invade a country for oil.

itsmehere1001: From nzherald:
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has claimed he was once gay but "cured" himself of homosexuality.
According to Newsweek, Mr Duterte made the bizarre comments on a trip to Japan where he mocked political opponent Senator Antonio Trillanes IV by saying his movements show he is homosexual.
He said someone else had asked him about the senator's sexuality.
"I said, 'Are you sure?' He said 'Ask any gay man and see that moving, they say that's gay,'" Duterte said. "Well, well, Trillanes and I are similar, but I got myself treated."
ShakespeareanJ: that doesnt make him a murderer it makes him a traditional and ignorant asian man. Feelings and bigotry like that are rife across the developing world

Sir Loin: I agree James, but not just Asian attitudes are like that. I consider myself fairly liberal and accepting of others but I do find the sight of 2 men fondling each other, kissing and tongues down each other's throats rather repellant
itsmehere1001: Also from the NZ Herald:
Three years after President Rodrigo Duterte unleashed the crackdown, at least 6600 people have been killed in police anti-drug operations, and more than 20,000 more killed by unknown perpetrators, according to the report. Only one case has led to a conviction — that of three police officers who murdered 17-year-old Kian Delos Santos.
The slaughter "has had the effect of creating a climate of total impunity in the country, in which police and others are free to kill without consequence," it said.
