Joseph Muscat is right

I thought that would get your attention. Don’t go running away with the idea that I have been converted to slavish adherence to the Movement, that abject manner of behaviour I shall leave to others, who seem to prefer to adopt the ostrich’s...

Get 'em out by Friday

In the post-truth era characterised by the electoral victories of Premier Muscat, that Farage specimen and - Gawd'elp'us'all - Donald Trump, it is possible to say what you like and get away with it, because, hey, it's an opinion, ay? My title...

The Antidisestablishmentarianism of it

I never thought I'd use that word, particularly in a headline, but hey, we're living in the Post-Fact World, the one in which words have lost their meaning, so there you go, it's up there for you to admire. If you want to know what it means, look...

A bad time to have a (decent) opinion

A great post caught my eye this morning: the German people are encouraging Americans to go ahead and vote in a lying, racist thug who threatens to imprison his enemies and stifle any opinion other than his. "After all, what can go wrong?" they...

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...

On going biblical

It is perhaps understandable that Super One hackette Janice Bartolo refuses, or hasn't the capacity, to grasp that the interests of Malta and Premier Muscat's Labour Party are not one and the same. Her report of her opinion of the PN's opposition...
