  • Some myths, exploded

    Some myths, exploded

    Sometimes you just have to wonder whether anyone who matters (or thinks s/he matters, a different kettle of herring altogether) has a critical bone in his or her body. I don't mean that the bone concerned is critical to the continued survival of...

  • Because they know it all

    Because they know it all

    When we were students at Tal-Qroqq, we used to pull our friends in the Architecture & Civil Engineering Faculty’s legs that they thought they knew it all. This was because they studied not only architecture AND civil engineering (usually two...

  • A trip down memory lane

    It has just crossed my radar that towards the end of September, just after Independence Day, Sir Temi Zammit Hall at the University is to be graced, if you'll forgive the dripping sarcasm, by a musical celebrating the life of Dom...

  • Tiny cracks

    Tiny cracks

    It is clear that Premier Muscat thinks he's got away with it: the population at large has forgotten all about Panama and assorted other incontrovertible pieces of evidence of Taghna Lkoll having become Taghna Kollha u Taghna Biss.  This is perhaps...

  • Because I'm worth it

    Because I'm worth it

    Many of us, who do not have to live the daily grind of making ends meet, whine about how so many people in Malta think the Government owes them a living and free services and hand-outs and generally loads of dosh. Those of us who think things...

  • Publish, then be damned

    In the last couple of days, there have been editorials in the free press that have brought into stark relief the way our position as the fourth guarantor of democracy has been eroded.   A free press, one that espouses the ideals of integrity and...

  • The untenable bitterness of being

    The untenable bitterness of being

    That Konrad Mizzi’s position within the Government, and now within the House, given the way he’s behaved, is untenable is a given. Likewise, his boss, Premier Joseph Muscat, who failed to dump him, and that other specimen, Schembri, at the first...
