Number indigestion

Many of the less involved are pretending to have developed number allergies. Not a number of allergies, an allergy to numbers: they manifest this by posting comments, or Facebook stati (proper plural of statuses) or tweeting tweets which basically...

It's sad, but life goes on (unless you're a bird)

That I'm disappointed need hardly be said. I am fundamentally opposed to all hunting, for reasons that I've given time and time again, and on the matter of Spring hunting, unsustainable as it remains even if the Great Unwashed, bless their little...

PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY

I urge you, seriously, to please, please think carefully before accepting at face value the apparently reasonable point being made by the "faces" being wheeled out by the pro-bird killing lobby. The point I'm referring to is the one that goes "why...

Fools in April, you say?

Sorry for the absence, it was a bit longer than usual.  We were away for a short break, doing the culture thing up the Smoke, as they say. I've always wondered about the extent to which credulity and gullibility find a good home amongst the...

Of this and that

I could just as easily have titled this piece "Of Him and Her", I suppose. In his efforts to deflect the public's attention from the Cafe Premier scandal, Premier Joseph Muscat providentially found a crutch in MaltaToday's coincidental and...

ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE

In, I believe, the Eighties, Mike & The Mechanics brought out a single with this title. It opened with the image of a waitress in a sleazy bar contemplating another stain across the wall and closes with the words "Don't look back, don't give up,...

IF IT LOOKS LIKE A DOG, SMELL THE COFFEE

There is a legal maxim that if something has four legs (one at each corner), a tail at one end (that wags) and barks from the other end, then it's a dog, however much you call it a parrot. Consequently, when a senior politician meets a businessman...
