ARS PRO ARTEM

Just for the ill-educated, the "ars" above lacks an "e", so it's not rude. That said, if this wasn't a portal that is accessible by all, including kids, I'd have been sorely tempted to add the "e", as it is about Jason Micallef that I will be...

OH, YES, REALLY?

Words, and their meaning, have experienced a disconnect under Joseph Muscat's Labour government that is awe inspiring.  Leave aside our Foreign Minister's concept of the meaning of the words "calm", "stable" and "evacuation" in the context of Libya.

PARALLELISM*

Our Government hasn't been particularly eager, from what one can see from the media, to condemn Israel's strong-arm tactics in Gaza. It's not that Joseph Muscat approves that sort of thing, obviously, it's just that our grasp of foreign affairs...

CHALLENGE(ING) TIMES

The representatives of probably the most law-abiding segment of the population, the federated coven of conservationist bird killers, have successfully piloted what is generally referred to as a "challenge" against the police. From my limited...

WONDERING MINISTERS

No, it's not a misprint for "wandrin' minstr'ls", it's a hint at what a couple of our Ministers, Honourable Gents both, should be doing. Wondering whether they should still be in their post, that is. Let's take the Honourable Dr Manuel Mallia,...

Such fun in the House currently. We have the Party Financing Bill, letting that Debono fellow (remember him?) feel all fuzzy and warm because one of his bugbears is being fed little morsels. If there was ever any reason to oppose a Bill, it's the...

DEPLORABLE DOESN’T START

The appointment of Dr Wenzu Mintoff to the Bench of Judges is deplorable in so many ways it’s difficult to know where to start. You can start from the unseemly haste with which the appointment was rushed through: the only hint was buried in the...

JUST NOT THE POINT

It seems that Ms Sai Mizzi Lang is guilty of disingenuousness of cosmically culpable proportions, rendering her hardly fit for purpose in a diplomatic role. She whined, while sticking up for her poor little self, that she doesn't earn €13,000 a...

OH, REALLY?

The headline that greeted us on Thursday morning had nothing to do with Brazil's humiliation at the hands of Germany or Argentina's boring win over boring Holland. Why is the game even going to be played on Sunday, why not just declare Germany the...

AWDYTYA?

The acronym stands for “And who do you think you are?” - adding a “P” for “precisely” would have been over-kill. The question is directed at a number of people, such that caught my eye on having a look around the news of late. It was reported,...
