CRIMINAL OF STEEL

Joseph Muscat, Leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister of the Republic of Malta, a state within the European Union despite the best efforts of Muscat's predecessors and of Muscat himself, and a state governed by the Rule of Law, despite the...

GET OUT OF THE WAY, THE UNDERDOGS ARE LOOSE

A revelation of cosmic proportions was made today: the Malta Developers Association Developers (aka contractors and speculators, in truth) has let it be known that they consider NGOs to be an obstacle to development. Oh, wow, what news. It’s as if...

MINE, ALL MINE

Labour’s hollow pre-election slogan was brought into sharp relief on Wednesday when Tony Zarb, head honcho at the General Workers’ Union, took great umbrage at the fact that Pawlu Lia had dared, had the temerity, the sheer gall, to oppose the...

Fuelled by a police publicity stunt that can only be seen as an effort to pander to populist sentiment, and certain parts of a media world that played its own tabloid part, the comments accompanying the reports of the arraignment last night of the...

WHOSE’S FAULT?

Labour is currently adopting the policy that anyone who criticizes – read does not roll over and acquiesce – the doings and shakings of the Government is a traitorous swine who should be taken out and shot like the cur that he is. OK, I’m...
