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”...

VIVE LA DIFFERENCE

Reacting to the PN's little stunt with the sticker album, in a statement, the Labour Party said that while the Opposition leader and the Nationalist Party were distributing albums, the Labour government was giving Maltese and Gozitan families...

ME, ME, ME, ME

The received wisdom was that Joseph Muscat was a great marketeer who had managed to “persuade” the electorate to swallow his meritocracy/inclusivity/moderateness spiel hook, line, sinker, rod and angler, to say nothing of the quay on which the...

READ ‘EM AND WEEP

This is what Joseph Muscat should be doing, if you take polls and columnists at face-value, that is. In fact, in a certain light, looked at through squinty eyes, it looks very much like he is - having a good weep, that is.     This is because...

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...

THAT’S ALL RIGHT THEN

It’s fascinating what takes the fancy of the public at large, and for that matter what takes the fancy of your average columnist. For instance, the Prime Minister’s unashamed leap onto the LGBTQ bandwagon, where a good number of votes was...
