I had hoped that I'd never have to never write another listicle after the whole Diacono kerfuffle. But, when you have three middle-aged men that have reached the pits of their political career and started digging further into the pitiful hole they've dug themselves into, I was left with no choice. I won't go too … Continue reading The Three Wise Hypocrites
I must have written a post and deleted it a thousand and one times. Nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing can justify what happened last week. A human being was assassinated, and a family lost their mother, a husband lost his wife and two parents lost their daughter. I ultimately decided not to write anything … Continue reading The Week That Was
I have to admit, I laughed and I laughed hard when I read Michael Briguglio's latest blog post title "A Souless State". This is coming from a man that has sold his political soul by turning on his former party when they needed him the most, fellow activists, social and civil rights campaigners everywhere and … Continue reading Michael Briguglio: Turncoat

Calleja goes on to mention how … Continue reading The PN are looking for a woman to lead them
Make no mistake, had the PN been voted into government last month civil liberties such as the Marriage Equality law would have been dealt a massive blow. After last week's neolithic comments by messrs David Agius and Clyde Puli, up stepped their fellow MP Edwin Vassallo today who claimed that he will be voting against … Continue reading Civil liberties dodged a bullet
Looking at the debate which brought an end to Malta's six month EU presidency which in my view will be a difficult one to match, I couldn't help but applaud the European Commission's President Jean-Claude Juncker actions. Juncker called the European parliament "Totally ridiculous" after a measly 30 members of parliament (which Juncker thanked for … Continue reading Respect where respect is due
New York Best has become quite a household name of late hasn't it? Let's make it clear, I am completely against the Moviment Patrijotti Maltin's act of vandalism which was a clear attack on freedom of expression, then again I'm against everything they do.
