Pque-NAIA Row 2

Airport auction stopped. Yay. Note that last paragraph: the Para˜aque local government is still trumpeting out loud how the hullabaloo over tax liabilities is aimed at “generating one billion pesos for infrastructure projects.”

STUPID STUPID STUPID!!! If the local government is doing this for the sole reason of fund-raising, then it doesn’t have a leg to stand on! The primary motivation should be lawfulness of taxation, and standard procedure on this should be a lawsuit, right? This is blackmail, plain and simple. I wonder why the government isn’t doing something to censure Parañaque for it?
