THAT is how Senator-elect Antonio Trillanes IV described his winning the election as the 11th senator in the last midterm elections. He said he came at the right time when the Nation is seeing the truth behind the facade that the Malacanang illegal occupant is trying to portray.

HIS victory is widely seen as a protest vote against Arroyo who has been dogged by allegations of massive cheating to win the May 2004 elections.

TRILLANES previously said if he was elected, he would seek to have Mrs. Arroyo impeached for corruption and massive cheating in order to stay in power. He also vowed to investigate the rash of extra-judicial killings.

BUT Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff Gen. Hermogenes Esperon Jr., who has shown displeasure at the victory of senator-elect detained Antonio Trillanes IV, former Navy junior officer, pursued his goal of humiliating Trillanes further and showing utter disrespect for the new senator of the republic’s office by having him brought to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) building in handcuffs.

TRILLANES arrived for the ceremony in Manila in handcuffs, flanked by armed guards after being given temporary leave from a military camp where he is in detention. The handcuffs were removed just before the start of the ceremony.

FUNNY but I see his guards smiling in various pictures in the broadsheets. They must be enjoying their trip, walking alongside the popular Trillanes who was met by COMELEC staff who left their desks to get a glimpse of the newl Senator.

HOW I wish I was there to witness History in the making!
