  • And the mouse roared

    And the mouse roared

    It was part of folklore that Minister Evarist Bartolo, in another life, was Mary l-Maws (or was it Marija?) on Labour's weekly paper, KullHadd.  Whoever it was, he or she used to delight in getting at people on the other side of the political...

  • Will he stay or will he go?

    It was a toss-up between The Clash and Queen but even though it seems to be pretty much a foregone conclusion that Premier Joe has done his electoral arithmetic and concluded that it's time for PanamaHats to be chucked over the side, there's still...

  • By George he's (not) got it

    Premier Joseph Muscat, late on Wednesday evening, was reported to have said that he gets it. All that he gets, it need hardly be said, is the extent to which Panamagate is harming his party with the electorate. Premier Muscat, it is now ultra...

  • Gouder's goodies

    "M'learned colleague" Charlon Gouder appears to have been chosen to react to my Opinion Piece about the PN Loan Initiative.    His piece needs some response. Clearly, Gouder's forma mentis is that the initiative is wrong principally because I find...

  • Call the roll at Question Time

    This question needs to be answered.  In the light of the revelations - now also in the international press - from the Mossack Fonseca leak, are you comfortable with the standards of governance adopted by Premier Joseph Muscat? Speaking for myself,...

  • Clowns to the left of me, jokers

    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

    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...

  • Up against the wall

    Up against the wall

    It is well documented that when a certain type of regime is backed up against the wall, the gloves come off and the true colours of the desperate rulers are brought into stark contrast.  We've hit that spot, it seems, and Premier Joseph Muscat's...

  • Media manipulation

    Media manipulation

    Back in the unsophisticated days of Mintoff, those of us whose teeth are a bit longer than your average bear's will remember, there was only one broadcast medium, known to one and all as Dardir Malta ('dardir' being Maltese for 'nausea') and it...
