Some describe the barriers as an eye sore in terms of aesthetics, but many also stated that their presence indicates something much more sinister.

Some pointed out that the parliament should be accessible to the common people, given that the elected members of parliament are lent the position through their votes.

Others were much more damning in their critique, saying that it indicates an almost dictatorial stance by the government.

What do you think? If you’d like to sign the petition, you can find the link here.

Chayanne Zammit and her two friends depicted the recent social media brawl between the mega stores, with Chayenne herself dressing up in one product that was the source of many price reductions: Coca Cola. 

Meanwhile, the other two dressed up in hoodies with the logo of the stores and threw in a couple of punching gloves to fight over the cheapest prices.
