An open letter from Malcolm Conlan to Devina Devida, after
her comments about Miss World 2013, Megan Young.
Please look around you and wake up. Who do you see
working in hospitals in your country as nurses, health care
assistants, pilots, drivers, working in banks, customer
service, restaurants, shops etc? Filipino's.
Exactly the same kind of jobs that everyone is employed in,
oh and yes even in houses as house helpers and nannies. Yes
Filipino's. The Philippines has always been a big exporter of
labour overseas and what's wrong with that?
Filipinos work in all kinds of industries, I can say one thing,
they all want to work hard to support their families and do
not enjoy claiming benefits or help from the Government.
They do the noble thing and work very for a living,
contributing to taxes and the Economy. I hate the word
'maid' it's old fashioned and not necessary, but actually
'maid' as you call it, yes many filipino's do work as domestic
helpers in the Middle East as well as across the world, they
do so to help their families and their country.
They should all be very proud. I am married to a Filipina and
we have two wonderful children who are also Filipino. I am
honoured and consider myself very privileged indeed to be
part of a British/Filipino family
Finally don't know what your issue is with the winner of Miss
Megan Young is Filipino, she is also very proud, as I am sure
many millions of Filipino's are across the entire world, so
before you really do upset many millions, please think very
carefully and apologise. Thanks so much.
Ngano ning nasulat ni MALCOLM CONLAN kay tungod ani. Nanglimbawot akong balhibo aning iyang mga gipanulti bahin sa mga filipino. Makalagot og makasurok og dugo kay kung makamenos mora dyog ug walang panagang nga pataka lang ug sulti.
Basaha ninyo ni maayo na lang kay daghan ang nakakuha og kopya una pa ni nadelete iyang page pero mao lagi pirting pagpanaway nato, kung makasulti morag way bukog. Pagtoo way lain makabasa sa iyang mga gipangsulti. Pero dili siya mangayo og pasaylo sama sa iyang gisulti sa ubos
