On being called moderate

In these days of political correctness (abhorrent concept) and blithe misconceptions about the meaning of words, it seems that being called "moderate" is taken as a compliment. How strange.  Being described as having only moderate attributes is, I...

RESIGN, JOE, PLEASE DO

If you want a monument to the body evidence that testifies to the unfitness for office of Minister the Honourable Joe Mizzi, just look around you. Do this little thing while stuck in the perception of a traffic jam that imposes itself on your...

THE KM BLUES AGAIN

If you like, send in a comment about which singer the title evokes. Or send in a rude comment if you're a Labour Troll, whatever. Just for the record, in the past I had professional connections with the airline, but what I'm writing about today...

Sa(i)ve us the money

  Instead of calling journalists stupid, even if he clearly believes that journalists who ask awkward questions are stupid, Premier Muscat should have told us precisely what the Huawei "investment" means for the country.  Let me explain why, in...

AND WHAT WAS ACHIEVED?

On Saturday, a number of thousands went to Valletta to protest against Premier Joseph Muscat's decision to site a "university" at Zonqor Point, a tract of land that is outside the development zone - ODZ in jargon. On Sunday, Premier Muscat let it...

Oi, Switcher...

Yes, you, the smug one in the corner, the one who voted for Premier-to-be Joseph Muscat because, you know, maaaa, these Nationalists, they're so, ma nafx jien, corrupt and hamalli.  Let's play a game, shall we?  Answer the "if this, then that"...

IDENTICAL BUT DIFFERENT

I'm not a bosom buddy of the Principal Permanent Secretary but he seems to be something of a kindred spirit in that he is clearly a big fan of "Yes, Prime Minister". Sir Humphrey, the faithful will remember, used words to achieve his nefarious...
