New interview on Bongbong Marcos and the Philippine elections

I was interviewed again last night (post-haircut) by TRT World on Bongbong Marcos being set to win the Philippine presidential election due to his campaigns of social media disinformation and historical revisionism, and public disaffection with the long-range shortcomings of the neoliberal elite that Leni Robredo and other contenders represent. Meanwhile, genuine grassroots candidates representing the working class have little hope of competing in a political system rigged in favour of the rich, powerful and violent. Bongbong’s administration will likely echo the autocracy and repression of both his father’s regime in the 1970s and 80s, and the more recent Duterte presidency.
