Xarabank of course. There I was wondering why this blog had gone suddenly quiet then I remembered that even the mother of blogs (during elections of course) cannot compete with WE and Peppi. Who’s on tonight? I’ve got one last night in Oz before we head out for the nine hour drive back to Luxembourg. Sorry guys I’ve sent no postcards back but I DID send a sweet sms postcard to a few. Preferential treatment and all that.
I am trying to zoom through the news I have been missing. Gonzi seems to be telling Sant not to fiddle with the kids’ education: Hey Freddie Leave those Kids alone. Easy one that. So the reception class idea is definitely ditched. No discussion. No argument. Another sacrificial lamb on the altar of electoral expediency. I still have no idea whether it is a good or bad idea but I never will because the issue is secondary to the PN GOOD, LABOUR BAD equation. More black and white for a colourless future.
Many people have visited the blog and commented over the past weeks. I have not had much time to remind people of the J’accuse agenda. I have not had time to correct the perception that this is some Alternattiva platform of some sort. The agenda here is the future. It goes beyond the 8th of March and the foregone conlcusions of the nth election in the sign of MLPN. The agenda asks a question: Who wants to think about the future? Who wants to join the bandwagon for real change? This kind of question has no colour. It is not green, blue or red. It is an appeal to those who like me have seen that the current path in politics is getting us nowhere.
You try to avoid the tit-for-tat arguments that we have been used to. Sometimes you get dragged into their style of argument – it may be because we are hot blooded and we would still love to have the last word. Sometimes, as in the feminism comment, it is just a trap laid out to see who will bite… and prove my point. Whoever agrees with the J’accuse agenda agrees that old style politics will not work. We are aware of having to vote an old style political party into government for the safety of all the married mummies and daddies who are too weary to fight for a better future and prefer the tried and tested mediocrity than a new challenge. It’s time for the Kinnie Generation to take up the baton of change. It is after this election that we will be called to action. Those among us who will stand up and be counted will continue to voice their concern, suggest alternatives and push for reform.
Because equilibrium is good because it gives you stability but the beautiful thing about equilibrium is that it takes just one little push to bring about total change.
