THANK YOU AUSTIN

The Minister people loved to hate back in the day when others governed and we weren't selling our citizenship for cash was Dr Austin Gatt. One of the main beefs the multitudes had with him was that he was seen as having been responsible for the...

MORE WORDS

In my "used-to-be-Beck" column on Saturday's paper version, I ruminated on the manner in which words have been deprived of their meaning by Labour's good men and true. Gozo Channel's Chairman, one such, is reported to have remarked, in connection...

From today’s timesofmalt.com, hot off the virtual presses, as it were: “Chief executive Ralph Roberts said the company took the decision because of lack of openness by the Maltese government.  He also said McGill's had a "gut feeling" that...

On Wednesday, almost but not quite too late for my neo-Beck column, Joseph Muscat paraded himself triumphantly before the massed ranks of the media to announce that an agreement had been reached with the European Commission that allows his...

SO OBVIOUS

The Nationalist Party has been challenged to produce the legal advice its been given to substantiate its position that "Henley Citizenship" can be revoked. The challenge is being made by the Government, by the Labour Party and by a panoply of...
