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...

Traffic language

The country shook with laughter when one of Minister Joe Mizzi's underlings said that our traffic problems were just a perception. The sardonic "I've been stuck in a Joe Mizzi perception for an hour now" made the rounds, it being better to make a...

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...

How convenient

The current jumping up and down and running about concerning the oodles of cash appertaining to ex-PN Ministers Michael Falzon (who must be kicking himself for spilling his own beans) and Ninu Zammit must be pleasing the PM no end. Many of his own...

ART FOR ART’S SAKE

Amidst the general chorus of condemnation, except by those who matter (the PM and his Ministerial sidekick Bonnici) about the location of the tat-market next to the Piano masterpiece, there was a small side-show about the sculpture of four knights...
