MEP Cyrus Engerer slams war on drugs as a failure

MEP Cyrus Engerer slams war on drugs as a failure
Jan 27 2023 Share

Maltese Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Cyrus Engerer took to Twitter to address recent comments made on ‘the war on drugs’ and following the recent killing of 30-year-old Pelin Kaya.

Engerer said that a war on drugs will always fail and that ‘no country can arrest its way out of drugs – it is much more complex.’

‘This matter is not for sensationalism and populist statements. We must attack trafficking, while at the same time work on addiction knowledge and well-being. Science not ideology’ he wrote. 

Pelin Kaya was killed by a cocaine-intoxicated Jeremie Camilleri, who drove his car into the woman and then into a KFC in Gżira. 

The incident prompted Nationalist MP Jerome Caruana Cilia to call for a revitalisation in the war against drugs to counter a spike in drug trafficking. He stated that the war should focus on traffickers and not drug users, who need rehabilitation, instead of prison sentences.

Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page deemed the world’s sexiest man

Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page has just been deemed, according to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, the most handsome man in the world. 

The 34-year-old Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is a British actor known for his breakout role in the Netflix series. He played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in Season 1.

The Golden Ratio Test reportedly test rates a person’s facial beauty based on how close their facial proportions are to the ratio. It was called the ‘Divine Proportion; by the Pythagoreans and it is a mathematical value called phi, equal to about 1.618. 

The title was given to Page by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who added him to a list of 9 other ‘very attractive humans’. 

English football player Jude Bellingham managed to make it to the top five with a score of 92.22%, followed by Harry Styles with 92.30%. The top three were rounded out with Michael B. Jordan at 93.46% and Chris Hemsworth at 93.53%.

But, the Golden Ratio itself is a rather problematic concept to begin with. With a long history going back to Plato, the ratio was found to be inaccurate when it comes to testing a wide range of facial features. 

There is no evidence which suggests that the Golden Ratio determines facial beauty – or any visual beauty for that matter.
