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,...

20/20 IS LOVELY

SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE

Super Minister #2, aka Dr Konrad Mizzi (#1 is, of course, Dr Manwel Mallia, Silvio Scerri's minister) whose youthful exuberance is in danger of morphing into unspeakable arrogance by the second, has let it be known that everyone but the PN is...

HYPNOTIC EYES

Look into my eyes, you're feeling very sleepy, you're losing your critical faculties, you're becoming mere putty in my hands, you will do my bidding. With not a great leap of imagination, that is the sort of thing Joseph Muscat seems to have...

THOSE NUMBERS

I’ve not written before now on the result of the MEP Election because, frankly, I’ve been a bit iffy about what to write.   The knee-jerk reaction of many on the PN side of the equation has been “what a disaster, we need to do something about it”...
