Labour in labour

Re-inventing the Malta Labour Party (and Maltese politics): an unauthorised tazebao.

Dedicated to those who are guilty of being young

Posted by fcb on April 8, 2008

Barack Obama’s Yes We Can speech is inspiring millions around the world. Listen closely to Obama’s Music Video. At one point the young Barack says: “We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. They will only grow louder and more dissonant. We’ve been asked to pause for a reality check.” One of our young commentators (n. 132) has observed that our own homespun chorus of cynics is whispering that one of the candidates for the leadership of the Labour Party is too young for the job and should let older, more experienced politicians take the lead. Let us be absolutely clear: this tazebao is nobody’s cheer club but we will not stand back when one of the candidates – ironically the most popular one – is accused of being young. We decided to carry Obama’s Yes We Can Music Video. Enjoy it. We dedicate this stirring speech-song to those of you who are guilty of being young at heart. We can. Yes we can.
