(Nationalist Electee’s Random Disquistions)

Malcolm Mifsud (President of College of Councillors of the Nationalist Party) on today’s Independent:

“In my schooldays I used to cover my copybook with my whole body in order not to allow my school friends to copy a single word of my work. I guarded my essays and assignments with my life. I wanted the first person to read my work to be the person who was empowered to judge me.”

In my book, in my schooldays, we call that being a nerd. In our time it was group work that prevailed. You did not hide your knowledge you shared it for the greater good. If more of us got good marks all the better. Then most of us went on to become self-respecting professionals. The nerds of this world meanwhile progressed to such greater pleasures as climbing the echelons of MLPN politics – probably by sucking up to the next person “empowered to judge them” until, hopefully (in their mind) they would reach a position where they themselves would be empowered to judge.

Have a nice weekend.
