Slovakia’s embattled prime minister offered to resign on Wednesday amid a wave of popular anger over corruption and the murder of an investigative journalist. Robert Fico has been under intense pressure to step down since Jan Kuciak and his fiancée were shot dead in their home outside the capital, Bratislava, last month. Mr Kuciak, 27, had been investigating alleged links between government figures and the ‘Ndrangheta, the powerful Italian mafia based in the southern region of Calabria.
Hate Blogger and Labour MP Glenn Bedingfield is currently earning just over €62,000 a year. In his double role as a Parliamentary Questions Cordinator and unofficial Labour Party’s hate blogger he’s being paid the handsome sum of €42,000 while as an MP he gets just over €20,000 a year. I won’t talk about the MP salary because that’s something that he earned as he was rightfully elected in the General Election however there’s a lot to say about his other glorified job.
This morning I came across a Facebook post in the popular group Are You Being Served that talked about an unfair fine someone got.

I must say that I honestly believed that the Speaker Anglu Farrugia was above the pettiness we grew to expect from certain Government’s MP’s, however his actions yesterday confirmed otherwise.
