He said what?

"China opened the door and we shut it. The Chinese said let’s talk and we snubbed them. It’s like the Philippine government itself is encouraging China to take and maintain an unbending stance on the issue...We should not be snobbish. I can’t see any reason at all why we are not talking to China. On the contrary, there are more than enough obvious reasons why we should talk to superpower China.”

"I felt it to be an advantage, a blessing and I’m very thankful that I am a Marcos. I am very happy that I was born into the Marcos family. I never felt it to be a burden.” (Pandesal Forum, Oct 2015)

"If the BBL that were to emanate from Congress and the version we are trying to approve is eventually stricken down by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional, then what happens? Would it mean that it is the end of the road for the proponents?

If the proponents are really bent on passing the BBL in the exact shape and form as drafted by the Palace and the MILF, then there would be no other legal recourse but to conduct a constituent assembly to study whether or not should have constitutional amendments. This essentially burns down to having the rest of the Philippines adjust its system so that it can go inside the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region.

The entire Philippines will change its constitution just to accommodate the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region. (Marikina Polytechnic College, 2015)"
