Say Hello to The Twins

October is soon to be inaugurated the month for sickeningly shameful court sentences, but since I’ve already written about the absurdity of all that, since I’ve already felt sick to my stomach reading ridiculous judgements  and since it seems that...

Do not call me gay

IMPORTANT Disclaimer - this blog is not to be consumed literally. If you lack the sarcastic gene, please skip to the crosswords. During my years at University, two of my very best friends hailed from Mellieha. To be perfectly honest, I always...

Today, the Court of Criminal Appeals decided to uphold a previous judgement and jail a mother for three months. Her crime? Not assault, not drugs, and not even theft. Her crime, if you so want to call it, was that of not allowing her ex-husband...

Drawing the line
