Campaigning Manila style

Paul Coletti Paul Coletti | 11:09 UK time, Monday, 22 February 2010

Filipino Philippino blogger Marocharim has an eye on the country's upcoming presidential elections in May. Here he's posted a snap of an ad for Felix "Peck" Cantal, a businessman who heads one of the green parties and who has an interesting campaign slogan . . . would that work where you are?


Cantal pulls no punches or strings: the standard-bearer of the Philippine Green Republican Party is campaigning on a very simple, passionate premise: "Maawa po kayo sa akin." (Have pity on me)
