New president of the MUT is pledging continuity

Date: Sun, 25 Jun 2017 22:25:01 +0200
The change in the leadership of the teachers’ union will not impact any of the positions held by the MUT in the past, newly elected president Marco Bonnici has pledged. Mr Bonnici spoke to The Sunday Times of Malta a day after he beat rival Franklin Barbara by just six votes in an election that was closely followed, in part due to the bitter campaign which saw the two candidates accusing one another of hijacking the electoral process. “The union’s positions do not reflect its leadership but that of our members. I do not believe that it is those at the helm that determine the MUT’s positions but its members,” Mr Bonnici said. His comments stand in contrast to those of his rival during the campaign, when Mr Barbara promised to bring what he said was much-needed change to educators’ professional lives. Pointing to home schooling as an example, Mr Bonnici said that when the MUT made its position against this concept public, it was following feedback it received from its members. Asked whether the MUT served as a trade union or as a professional body, Mr Bonnici insisted the union has always served as both. “The MUT is both a professional body as well as a trade union.

Vettel "disgraced himself", says furious Hamilton

Date: Sun, 25 Jun 2017 22:18:00 +0200
Lewis Hamilton accused Formula One rival Sebastian Vettel of disgracing himself and deliberately driving into his car as a bitter clash between the world championship rivals dominated Sunday's Grand Prix in Azerbaijan. Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo won in Baku after a chaotic race which saw Ferrari's Vettel given a 10-second stop-go penalty when he steered into the back of race leader Hamilton's Mercedes under safety car conditions after a red-flag stoppage on lap 22. The four-time champion seemed infuriated with Hamilton after the Briton slowed on the exit of Turn 15. After the initial collision, the German gesticulated angrily with both hands as he pulled alongside his rival and hit the side of Hamilton's car. After his penalty, imposed by the stewards for dangerous driving, Vettel recovered to finish fourth, one place ahead of Hamilton. The episode left the British driver incensed. "Deliberately driving into another driver and getting away pretty much scot-free as he still came fourth, I think that's a disgrace. I think he disgraced himself today," Hamilton said. "Imagine all the young kids that are watching Formula 1 today and see that kind of behaviour from a four-time world... >
