A big “McBain” brought the first set to a close.Set two started off with the familiar falsetto of “Blue Jeans Pizza”. A heartfelt “The Happiest Days Of Our Lives” was up next, and that started off an awesome three-song segment that featured Pink Floyd‘s ever-poignant “Another Brick in the Wall”, and a raucous “Lazarus”. The band then kicked into high-gear with a seamless, four-song set-closing run through “Hi and Lo”, “Don’t Fuck With Flo”, “Ricky Marten”, and “Meat”.For the encore, the band stepped on the stage and busted out an improv-heavy cover of the Allman Brothers‘ classic “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”.

PNP believes drug war ‘still successful’ despite Robredo remark

first_imgPhilippine National Police (PNP) spokesperson Brigadier General Bernard Banac MANILA – The Philippine National Police (PNP) still believes that the government war against drugs is still working despite the remark of Vice President Leni Robredo that the drug menace is still prevalent in the country. PNP spokesman Brigadier General Bernard Banac said in a press conference that the administration’s anti-drug campaign will continue as the public is satisfied with it. Banac cited a Social Weathers Stations survey stating that 82% of adult Filipinos were pleased with the anti-narcotics campaign resulting in an “excellent” net satisfaction rating of +70. “Mananatili po ang ating kampanya dahil ito po ‘yung mandato natin at kailangang gampanan para sa ating mga mamamayan,” he said.center_img Banac added: “Well ang atin pong isinagawang anti-illegal drug campaign ay meron pong 82-percent approval satisfaction from our public so ‘yun po ang magiging batayan namin kaya magpapatuloy ang ating kampanya laban sa illegal na droga,” he added. In an interview with Reuters on Wednesday, Robredo said that Duterte must put an end to the bloody war on drugs as it has been “ineffective” and it was putting a dent on the country’s international image. “We ask ourselves, ‘Why is this still happening?’ The president has already made very serious threats to drug syndicates, to drug lords … and yet it’s still very prevalent, so obviously, it’s not working,” said Robredo./PNlast_img read more
