The article is by Ranier Fsadni and was published in the Times of Malta this morning. It is, as is usual from this author, brilliant, clear and devastatingly cogent. People who shared the article on Facebook have had it struck down after Facebook received complaints the article is spam. We are fighting a battle merely [...]

A family of a policeman is going through unbearable suffering. He was doing his job directing traffic and a young man tried to kill him. I’d have to say allegedly tried to kill him of course, but his arrest and arraignment though not a prejudice to the presumption of his innocence are manifest and reasonable [...]

I had a conversation with the tech guys that help me out. The scale of the attack this website has been and is being subjected to is far from common. It compares to the worst acts of sabotage the local industry sees for example when someone wants to try to push an online casino off [...]

Championing through daily rights for civil liberty, Whilst enabling the degradation of moral purity. Pumping stations will fuel this egoistic vanity, Trees mortgaged to satisfy our Dubai fantasy. A country where men can [...]

My speech at yesterday's vigil in Valletta: https://youtu.be/St2x3RowX-o Nixtieqkom tilbsu ż-żarbun tas-sorsi li kixfu dak li nafu fuq il-korruzzjoni f’pajjiżna. Meta l-whistleblowers tkellmu sentejn jew sena ilu ħadu riskji kbar. Xebgħu jaħbu għall-imbruljuni u stħaw flok sħabhom li baqgħu jagħlqu għajnejhom. Ħadu riskji kbar. Tilfu xogħolhom u għal xi żmien il-libertà tagħhom. Esponew ‘l uliedhom [...]

Do people feel the way they sound when they go on Facebook to say the thug who ran over a policeman should have reversed over him to finish the job? It was not a universally held view by any means but what possesses apparently normal people to say such things in open view of everyone? [...]

This website was down for almost 15 hours after what is called a DDoS attack, an act of sabotage that, the engineers who manage this website told me, was a considerable, relentless, well planned and focused effort to keep this website down for as long as possible. It can't be a coincidence that whoever did [...]
