She said, me said

She [Minister Dr the Hon. Helena Dalli] said that: "[she] took exception to an article by Andrew Borg Cardona, one of the authors of the report, particularly to a comment that the current administration was “a bunch of clowns caught...

A few thoughts

I’ve been away from this blog for some time, being of a moderately lazy disposition and that.   On medical advice (self-administered) I’ve concluded that letting off steam is more important than putting up my (virtual) feet, so I’m b(e)ck - don’t...

Sant, words master

You have to admit that Doctor Alfred Sant (remember him?) is a master of words, which is hardly a revelation given that he's a Labour politician and that particular genus is a fine exemplar of barrack-room lawyering of the first order. You know,...

Gotta love Reno

If you want a monument to the body evidence that testifies to the unfitness for office of Minister the Honourable Joe Mizzi, just look around you. Do this little thing while stuck in the perception of a traffic jam that imposes itself on your...

THE KM BLUES AGAIN

If you like, send in a comment about which singer the title evokes. Or send in a rude comment if you're a Labour Troll, whatever. Just for the record, in the past I had professional connections with the airline, but what I'm writing about today...
