Glory Glory Tottenham Hotspur!



Mates of mine will know that I am a big fan of Tottenham Hotspur! So it was with no little pleasure that me an Roxanne witnessed the Spurs finally winning a trophy..and against mighty Chelsea!
A well-balanced match, with the whites taking the lion’s share of the play in the first half (although Chelsea scored first), and Chelsea responding well in the second, despite Spurs equalising. Funny bit that! Then a truly fortuitous goal by Woodgate in the 3rd minute of extra time sealed matters! COME ON YOU SPURS!

Fessed up again!


Well somebody sure doesn’t like us Juventini. This is the 4th match which we should have won comfortably, but being denied by extremely poor and biased refereeing. No excuses here mind you. Facts are facts, whichever way you look at them. This has been going on for some time with no end in sight. Aaaah..makes me sick.

Beautiful

One of the (few) advantages of going to work early (7am) is enjoying the simple beauty of nature.

A mate of mine here at work is always running around with his camera in his car, and the following picture is a result of his efforts. Pity he uses a Canon! Hehe! I am a Sony guy, but no arguing with the beauty of this picture!


Well Done Johann…keep the camera rolling!

Some light-hearted relief! (in Maltese…sorry)

JIENA HA NTIHOM IL 1

So many things happening around us!

Haven’t updated my blog for a while, so it is about time I put up some posts. This is going to be a different post from normal.

It will definitely be longer and have three quite different subjects. I will be writing about Religion, Politics and Abuse.

Strange isn’t it? For 5 years my political instincts lie dormant, while the mere mention of the words ‘General Election’ make me give a good long look at what has been happening around us here on the island. I won’t be too far off the beaten track if I say that Labour will probably win this year’s election.

Apart from a 2 year hiatus in ’96, the Nationalist Party has ruled for the last twenty years. Looking at this lengthy dominion, Malta has changed for the better. Anyone with a sense of fairness will have to admit that things are far different than when they ascended to power all those years ago. And those two years Labour spent in governing were nothing but utter shambles.
However, I feel that after twenty years, rot starts to set in. Intoxication of Power is the name of the game here, and it has really been too long. But is it the fact that people want a change to Labour? Or simply because they are tired of seeing the same people in power for so long? I shudder to think at the way Labour spoonfeeds the people, telling ME what is right or wrong for my kids. I have brains with which I can decide for myself no? Give me the facility to choose, and I will do so with my mind.

People DO NOT want to change the government policy…people want to change the ministers and deputies. So the 8 March will see a tense affair develop on the Maltese Islands. On one hand we see the Nationalist Government which has worked so hard to introduce us to Europe and the European Currency, on the other hand we see Labour with their aspirations of simply disagreeing with the Nationalists just because that’s the way that things go. I doubt in Sant’s leadership. No…make that I do not agree with his leadership. His methods date back to the late 70s early 80s, when all we could do was shut up.

It sure as hell will be an interesting three days!

Okay, now we turn to religion. I hate organisations as a whole. And I hate organised religion the most. I cannot imagine what two thousand year old teachings have to do with this modern society of ours. I would point out that today it is Islam that I am up against. I have just seen pictures that have shaken me to the core.


An eight year old boy, neglected and hungry, stole (stole? stealing food to live!) a piece of crust from a merchant in Iran. This boy, weak as he invariably was due to malnutrition, was subsequently caught and sentenced. The punishment? Having him lie down on the ground and having a truck drive over his left arm. And the fuckers said that they took mercy on him by only crushing his left arm, since he was right-handed. This boy will remain crippled for life.

Finally back to our shores
and an act of sheer stupidity by what many presume is the FKNK. Well at least they are admitting that they were the ones to try and put things straight. Just head to the Birdlife Malta site. The gist of what happened is this. Three members of Birdlife were doing a scientific study at Buskett, when a bang was heard. The trio headed back to their vehicles, only to see them in flames. One of the men is an American, driving a vehicle with diplomatic plates.



How about that? On both websites of Birdlife and FKNK there have been threats by the so-called ‘Conservationists’, whom I consider as bullies. Obviously, hard facts are hard to come by, but everybody knows that the hunters association is hugely against control.

Hell, I have family members who were happy at this act of arson. When are these people going to learn that in this day and age there has to be change? I will be subscribing to Birdlife, and hope to play my part.


Quotes by Greenpeace follow. “Environmentalists throughout the region are shocked and alarmed to hear the news about the firebombing of wildlife volunteer’s cars. Given a history peaceful environmental campaigns, even in the face of past threats and intimidation, this violent act is a disturbing threat to Maltese civil society” stated the Director of Greenpeace Mediterranean, Mr Ahmet Bektas. “This descent to what police believe was probably a criminal attack, has no place in an EU country. It’s perpetrators stain the heritage and risk the reputation of Malta” he continued. While Greenpeace is not involved in Birdlife’s campaign to save migrating wild birds from the spring hunt, it stands together with Birdlife in its vision to peacefully defend wildlife and the environment. Mr Bektas called for rapid, decisive leadership to send a clear message to those willing to descend into violence. “At a time when Malta has so much going for it, the Prime Minister and the Opposition must find the courage and unity to immediately address the underlying issue of illegal hunting. It is incomprehensible that they should permit a small minority who flout the European Commission as well as the views of wildlife scientists and insist on their right to destructive hunting. The government of the day must join and support the view of most Maltese people and protect remaining wildlife. This will not only give a clear message that intimidation and violent methods will not be tolerated, but it will also build the country’s reputation and allow it to move on.”
