Just when you think that Premier Joseph Muscat can't get any more transparent, he goes a step further. I am not using transparent here in anything approaching, even remotely, a good sense, but in the more proper sense of us now being able to see...

And it goes on, probably maliciously

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...

Fire Joe Mizzi, now

I use a motor-bike as a preferred mode of transport, because it’s easier to park, it gets through traffic like a knife through the proverbial and because, truth be told, it’s excellent fun. Except when some officious twerp decides that traditional...

Our dearly beloved politicians seem to have reached consensus that the disgusting heat of summer is only conducive to rest and relaxation, so they haven't been too forthcoming in giving me grist for my blogging mill. That said, Premier Muscat has...
