From my article in The Sunday Times today:
“The 2022 election result was a punch that hit the bruising still glowering from five years earlier. Once you face up to the fact that not even the killing of a journalist, the world’s condemnation, greylisting by international agencies, the ruling of three judges and the chaos of Muscat’s last week , would make a dent on Labour’s hegemony, you must also face up to the fact that for things to change they first need to get worse.
“Worse than the last five years? Worse than the darkness we have already been through? Some might say that’s unthinkable. Until it happens.”
