Normally ‘The Socialist’ is not my first read in the morning but the radical publication has the right to claim some ownership of May Day and to express indignation when the holiest day of the left is desecrated.
Heading reads “Malta: right-wing Labour leader’s Panama Papers insult to May Day”. Yep. Though admittedly just about everyone is likely to be to the right of The Socialist, they did not get that one wrong about Joseph Muscat.
“May Day is a demonstration of international workers’ solidarity. To associate it with the murder of a journalist killed after criticising pro-big business politicians is a disgrace.” Yes, I suppose I can agree with that too.
Nice one, comrades.
