The senator Enrile 'couldn't be civil' with

Enough is enough.
 
This was how Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile hinted of burning bridges with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago due to their long rocky relationship.

"Enough is enough for me. I forgive but I do not forget," Enrile said after being asked if he would be willing to make peace with Santiago even just for Christmas.

"I am not a hypocrite. Hindi ako plastic. I could not be civil (anymore) so I sent her the gift because maybe her staff made a mistake sending it over," he added.
 
The highest Senate official made the statement as he denied Santiago's claim that he was mad at her and Senator Pia Cayetano for favoring the bill on Responsible Parenthood or RH bill.
 
While admitting that sent back Santiago's Christmas gift, Enrile clarified that he only did it because he couldn't accept anything from someone who doesn't consider him a friend.

"Miriam said she only asked me to be his godfather for the status and that her relationship with me has always been very cold. Ice-cold," Enrile said.

"And I felt that maybe this lady does not really like me. That's why I returned it," he added
 
Enrile said Santiago had started acting cold since he opposed her confirmation for the Department of Agrarian Reform during the time of late President Corazon "Cory" Aquino.
 
He noted, however, that Santiago still asked him to be a godfather in her wedding when he was still at the Justice department.

"I gave her first assignment at the justice department. Maybe that's why she got me as a god parent... for assignments like that... a matter of status," he said.

Enrile issued the statements in reaction to Santiago, who said he should be unseated as the head of the Senate allegedly for acting like a dictator.
 
Santiago enumerated Enrile's antagonistic attitude when RH and sin tax bills were still at the legislative mill.
 
Senator Antonio "Sonny" Trillanes IV earlier complained of Enrile's "undemocratic" way of leading the Senate.
