Mainly with Malta being so close to Sicily it always intrigued me how it was ever possible for a single individual to rule Sicily in such a reign of terror, however the more your read, the more you realise that it was in fact possible. It was possible because he was allowed to rule, he was allowed to rule because he kept the people around him happy.
Most of us thinks that in this beautiful country of ours, if someone frauds you, you can go to the police, file a report, go to court, and settle it in a few months (maybe years).

It’s been a month since Daphne Caruana Galizia was brutally murdered. That infamous Monday 16th October 2017 will forever haunt our nation as the day that the 4th pillar of democracy was shattered to pieces. Yet a month on from the day, unfortunately we’re even more vulnerable than we were on that day.
