02 Apr Alison Bezzina – The cost of being right
For months I had said I was the victim of a bad political system that required radical constituional reform.
For pushing forward justice reforms on which practically everyone agreed, and voting accordingly and according to conscience in the consequential no confidence vote in the Justice Minister, I was disciplined by the party.
