From my article in The Sunday Times today:
“They expect us now to walk away and stay home as they go on as if nothing ever happened. We’re not doing that. Our aspirations for a new Republic are clear and legitimate. We are not demanding the impossible. We are not anarchists. We believe in the State and we argue for law and its rule above anyone’s interests.
“But the state of the State today is diseased and our political parties appear unable or unwilling to offer solutions to start healing it. When Chris Fearne said he was “joking” when he said he’ll bury political opposition before he’s buried himself, he showed just how dark his humour is. It would have had to be as he stood four-square behind Muscat for six years knowing full well what he was up to. And laughing.
“When the vision of political leaders is limited to their own vaulting ambition, it is up to the people to spell out where their country is to go next.”
