I'm really enjoying listening to every speech and interview our Prime Minister gives, they keep giving us important insights about his flawed lines of thought and amoral behaviour.
The Prime Minister said that repealing citizenships acquired by naturalization is an act of a "totalitarian regime", and that such a repeal "would be in clear violation of the Constitution and of the European Charter on Human Rights." (link to article here)
Never mind that decisions by the European Court of Human Rights actually contradict the Prime Minister's statement. What he said translates to one thing: according to Muscat, human rights and constitutional rights can be bought!
Read it again: according to our Prime Minister, there are human rights which can be accessed by the rich and bought, and are not within reach of the poor.
That goes against the very definition of what constitutes a human right. No, a citizenship you BOUGHT is not a human right, because human rights are rights which you intrinsically have as a human. They are something so invaluable that you cannot put a price on them.
Until today our citizenship, our identity, the intimate bond between a citizen and his country, could also be defined as something invaluable and which you cannot put a price on. Unfortunately, from tomorrow, it seems that this is to be no more.
Remembering that this was the Prime Minister who declared that talented people are people with money, this comes as no shock. On the other hand, it strengthens the fact that money is the only thing that counts in our Prime Minister's moral compass.
