One year on, sustainable development and time out

The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.
Edward Kennedy

It may be a cliché but time truly flies by. It has been just over a year since my first post on this blog, which defined the scope and ambitions of this little corner in cyberspace. The dream of a Progressive Malta, a truly secular Malta rooted in social democracy and guided by the concept of equality in diversity in all her decisions is, one year on, still but a mere dream. Nonetheless, I believe it is a cause worthy of dreams and one worth fighting for.

Last year I praised the GonziPN government for placing 'sustainable development' at the heart of its fresh mandate. I stated that "one hopes, that the government lives up to its promise much to the benefit of our common future. Malta is waiting. Malta is watching." Unfortunately, GonziPN has left us waiting and watching. In all honesty, I am tired of waiting and can't see any changes. The recent power station saga is a case in point. Dr. Gonzi threw sustainable development out the window and raised emission limits in the middle of a tender process. to get some shaky, 2c cheaper deal. The MEPA reform leaves much to be desired. I sincerely pity all men and women in GonziPN's entourage who genuinely hold the environement at heart. They are with the wrong party.

Due to exams I require a time out. See you all on the 8th of June.
