Star Comment: This one is for Alfred Sant

2022-10-20T14:15:57+02:00Thu, 20th Oct '22, 14:15|

Comment by BERTIE beneath my earlier post informing that far-right German MEPs were the only other MEPs to vote with Malta's Labour MEPs against a motion calling for justice for Daphne Caruana Galizia and for impunity to end in Malta and after Alfred Sant's speech at that debate where he described without naming Repubblika as [...]

We keep ignoring this at our peril

2022-10-20T13:48:29+02:00Thu, 20th Oct '22, 13:48|

I’m not saying this because Raphael Vassallo said the opposite just yesterday. I don’t design my opinions around the misanthropy and jaded contrariness of someone whose religious maxim appears to amount to ‘I don’t care’. I wouldn’t call them reasons, but if what you want is some guidance on how to stop worrying and love [...]

The only other 6 MEPs to vote against the [...]

They are doing all they can to resist change. We are determined to get there. And we will. Repubblika's [...]

This is bloody Dickensian

2022-10-20T10:20:27+02:00Thu, 20th Oct '22, 10:20|

Are we supposed to go all aaaawwww and gawp at the cutesy generosity of Minister Michael Falzon? He launched yesterday the 10th edition of a charity event where donors pay to fulfil a child’s dream. But hear me out. This is not some NGO scraping money together to make up for gaps in social welfare. [...]
