‘Fix The System’ Roberta Metsola States After Jean Paul Sofia Vote

'Fix The System' Roberta Metsola States After Jean Paul Sofia Vote
Jul 13 2023 Share

Taking to social media following the parliament’s majority vote against the opening of a public inquiry into the death of Jean Paul Sofia, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola took to social media to share her thoughts about the tragedy. 

‘Fix. The. System’ said Roberta Metsola. ‘When 20-year-old boys are killed under collapsing construction, we need to reflect as a nation on how things got to this point.’

‘We need an honest assessment of what went wrong, what policies allowed this to happen, where we can do better as a country and what lessons can we learn to never let another parent mourn the loss of a child buried under rubble.’

‘The first step in doing that is a public inquiry that can assess all the shortcomings we face as a country. That’s how we start to fix things. By being honest with ourselves, by coming together, by enacting new policies and new laws. Not by covering up. Not by protecting those responsible. Not by defending the indefensible. Not by betraying the grieving parents of a boy who believed in you.’

‘Politicians are accountable for the choices they make. There is a duty to recognise when things are simply not ok. There is a duty to fix things. 

We’ve been here before – sweeping this under the carpet will not work. The efforts of those who are desperate to protect the status quo at any cost, cannot succeed. Not anymore. Not this time.

The system is broken. Ġustizzja għal Jean Paul Sofia.’

Just Bants: Maltese People Have One Thing In Common With Pitbull

Just Bants: Maltese People Have One Thing In Common With Pitbull
Jul 13 2023 Share

Whether you love him or hate, you’ve had to cross paths with Armando Christian Pérez a.k.a Pitbull at least once in your life. Whether it’s through an unsuspecting DJ cuing up ‘Timber’ at the club or watching ‘I Know You Want Me’ on MTV in 2009, Pitbull is inevitable.

However, very few people know that we the people of Malta have something in common with Mr. 305. No, it’s not the affinity for suits and sunglasses, nor is it the affinity for goatees. Actually, it has to do with the internet.

An uncontrollable SEO issue at the very best, what our sunny Mediterranean island shares with Mr. Worldwide is a major Google issue.

That’s right, Google. A quick search of the words ‘Maltese’ and ‘Pitbull’ will both present the same problem: almost 50% of the results will be of cute canines.

If you’ve lived in Malta, you’ve definitely have heard the canine comparison at least once, and having to compete with one of the cutest dog breeds out there on Google was a problem our forefathers never imagined us having.

Meanwhile, the ‘Calle Ocho’ rapper carries the same weight, with his goatee-graced profile appearing alongside a variety of pit bull breeds.

Do you think the American rapper is aware of this issue?

Zammit Family House In Australia Refuses To Settle For $33 Million

Zammit Family House In Australia Refuses To Settle For $33 Million
Jul 13 2023 Share

An Australian family home belonging to Diane and David Zammit currently sits in the middle of a build-development near Quakers Hill after having refused to settle for up to $33 million.

Australia’s 7News reported how the home sits alone on 5 acres of land and is estimated to be worth $33 million.

The property owners surnames are Zammit, and given the massive population of Maltese living in Australia, it wouldn’t be much of a leap to at least assume the descent of the inhabitants. 

The home is situated at The Ponds, about a 40-minute drive from the centre of Sydney. 

The Daily Mail spoke with Diane Zammit, who said that the neighbourhood used to be farmland dotted with little brick homes and cottages when her family moved in 17 years ago.
