BEING LEFTY HIP

OK, so having a bucket of cold water dumped over your head in August in Malta is a real heroic thing to do, especially when the PR-fluff piece that accompanies your derring-do doesn't tell people how much you donated anyway to the ALS Fund and,...

INNOCENT, FOR NOW

At the moment, Facebook is all in a tizzy because the priest who allegedly molested minors had his identity protected by the Court and because he has been granted bail. The Prosecution are appealing the bail decree, from what I see, so by the time...

ALL GOING SWIMMINGLY

That bastion of free exchange of ideas and progressive thought since Colonial days, the Marsa Sports Club, which many old-timers still refer to as il-Marsa tal-Inglizi, has banned a Muslim woman from swimming in their swimming pool wearing a...

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.

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,...

IN DA HOUSE

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...
