In his Manila Times column, Tiglao described Paredes as a 'great pretender'.

"A big fan of Aquino, Jim Paredes, pretends to be concerned about the nation, when in his middle-aged years, he chooses to be an Australian.

Paredes is among the personalities who is said to be a staunch supporter of the Liberal Party. Just recently, he made scornful comments to President Duterte where he said ""P---ina mo rin! Account for every cent we pay. Don't spend it on trips with hangers  on who join for the junket. Do not use OUR money on TROLLS. Do not spend a cent on your kabits."

The statement of Paredes was a response to President Duterte after the latter hit the billionaires in our country for not paying correct amount of taxes. [Read it here]

The musician earlier admitted in interviews that he moved to Australia with his family in 1998—when then-President Joseph Estrada assumed office— because he had given up on the Philippines.


But in a 2014 interview with Philippine Star columnist Ching Alano, Paredes said he’s living alone in the Philippines now while his family are still in Australia.

“My two kids like it there, they’re already dual citizens. My wife can be a citizen if she wants. Me, I’m just a permanent resident, I go in and out,” he said.
