It is axiomatic, practitioners of the dark art of advocacy will tell you, that when the presence of a minister is required for testimony, it is ever so likely that Affairs of State will be found so impelling that precedence would have to be given...

Have your moment...

Let's start from the premise that any amount of €uro's worth of investment is a good thing. Premier Joseph's announcement of the fact that some people are going to print money here is, therefore, an equally good thing and he deserves his moment in...

Betting on it

Former-Ex Minister Manwel Mallia is clearly betting on it.    Betting on the fact that your common-or-garden Labour punter (or member of the chattering classes, for that matter) doesn't bother reading anything beyond the headline or the first...

Not a good week for the premier

Two pieces in Wednesday's print edition of this media house's output, and some later news, inspired my title. The first piece was Martin Scicluna's full-pager about Sliema and Mrieħel's "newly permitted" carbuncles and how this merits a boycott...
