Striking a balance

They say that the key to success in politics is pulling off a delicate balancing act. This can be applied to any major political party, be it in government or opposition. In terms of the latter, we can certainly apply the art of pulling off a balancing act to the current state of the Nationalist […]

A New Age of Opposition

I have never existed in a time where the current Opposition truly had a purpose. Following the succession of Malta into the European Union, the Party lost its momentum and became complacent. Without any real vision or winning noble cause, they spiralled gradually to then lose the General election a mere ten years later. The […]

The Betrayal Of A Country

Our country is in shambles. Being Maltese is presently not something to boast about beyond our COVID-infested shores. We are Maltese; the ones who ‘blow journalists up’, who ‘sell passports’, who ‘had most of the Police traffic department arrested’, and now, those who harbour COVID-19. The rapid deterioration of the virus’s containment is indeed a […]

Chairman Bob’s cultural revolution

We are all aware that China is in the news quite regularly these days, the world over. Be it a squabble with Dangerous Donald, a fistfight on the China-India border, or lockdown in Wuhan; the country has hogged the headlines. What us Westerners find particularly disgruntling about China is its ominous, all-seeing Communist Party; a […]

The Totalitarianism of Toddlers

When I was four years old, I would regularly fight with my beloved younger brother and would sometimes even hit him. He would start crying and my mum would report to the scene, but I would always claim that I had nothing to do with it. Occasionally, I would be short-sighted enough to perpetrate the […]

The importance of youth activism

At a certain point in our lives, we have all come across the word ‘democracy’ and learnt its definition for an exam or other purposes. Democracy is a form of government which gives a voice to the people to the extent that if we take Malta as an example, the Maltese people get to elect the people who they want to represent them in Parliament.
