WAS JUST SAYING

The Prime Minister had said that the President will be overseeing some functions from her former Ministry. The President now says, whoops, can’t actually do that under the law, we need to change the Constitution. She didn’t, and nor would I have...

SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE

Super Minister #2, aka Dr Konrad Mizzi (#1 is, of course, Dr Manwel Mallia, Silvio Scerri's minister) whose youthful exuberance is in danger of morphing into unspeakable arrogance by the second, has let it be known that everyone but the PN is...

HYPNOTIC EYES

Look into my eyes, you're feeling very sleepy, you're losing your critical faculties, you're becoming mere putty in my hands, you will do my bidding. With not a great leap of imagination, that is the sort of thing Joseph Muscat seems to have...

SHAMEFUL MINISTERS

You will recall, given that you use your brain (why else would you read this?) that Dr Konrad Mizzi, then still a callow youth without experience of high office, during some telly programme or other had intoned the mantra "shame on you, Minister"...

THE PRICE OF STEEL

Minister Helena Dalli, whose grasp of employment law has already been demonstrated by the manner in which her ministry saw fit to treat the Industrial Tribunal, has let it be known that convicted criminal Cyrus Engerer is to remain engaged by the...

CRIMINAL OF STEEL

Joseph Muscat, Leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister of the Republic of Malta, a state within the European Union despite the best efforts of Muscat's predecessors and of Muscat himself, and a state governed by the Rule of Law, despite the...
