Clowns to the left of me, jokers

It being April 1, we had the obligatory spoof stories on the portals today.  I only looked at the English language versions, this being an Anglo-Saxon sort of humour, which is probably why Premier Muscat runs the country as if every day was All...

Sorry, still here

The trolls who actually read my last regular Saturday column (I doubt they all do, some of them clearly spring into action only when their buttons are pressed) will have had cause for pointless rejoicing if they spotted the editor's note about the...

Depths not yet plumbed

It used to be a given that the financial services sector was a no-go area, an area that was too important to the national interest to be embroiled in the daily argy-bargy of the political arena. When the PN were in power, this position was...

I write my weekly "ex-Beck" column on Wednesday, sometimes early Thursday, and this leaves me exposed to the foibles and whims of our sometimes not-so-honourable Lords and Masters.   This week, the perfect storm hit me: due to having one of those...

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...
