Regular readers of this blog will surely be familiar with our strong belief in all things satirical. In the distant past of the Maltese blogosphere we had our own share of tiffs with those who did not savour the satirical pill too well. Anyways, bygones are bygones and we applaud the decision of the chairman of the National Folklore Commission to reintroduce satire in the national carnival. I used to look at pre-1936 carnival floats with envy – they wasted no opportunity to satirise the politicians of the moment… let us hope that this careful step ushers in a new moment wherein we learn a little more about laughing about ourselves.
Elsewhere a Thermidor moment pokes fun at the Green’s aim of 2,000 votes in one district. The Greens become a little practical about their electoral aims and Thermidor goes ballistic. A marked contrast with the deafening silence which shrouded the MLPN agreement on Elections and all things Duopolistic. And since when does mixing national thresholds with districtual ones become a sensible statistical exercise?
Of course it exists Fausto… it’s just that you choose (conveniently) to be too blind to see it.
