Disgraced self-described prime minister Joseph Muscat, who continues to squat in Castille well past his useful life in office, said civil disobedience is not acceptable in a democratic society. That’s because the toppled emperor Joseph 1 confuses democracy with what North Korea means when it says it’s the Korean Democratic Republic.

Civil disobedience is not only acceptable in a democratic society. It is not even merely a right. Civil disobedience is a duty. Meantime protesters tomorrow will bring pots and pans to make noise. And I should imagine some people will have eggs, tomatoes and sundry ripe and soft fruit to explain to Joseph Muscat the democratic nature of civil disobedience. I don’t know. It might happen.
