MARLENE, ARE YOU FOR REAL?

Ms Marlene Mizzi has been pleased to allow it to be put about that she is one of the more cerebral players on Labour's team, and an entrepreneur to boot. Her campaign photo, amusingly, has had more work done on her image than it takes to keep the...

PRESIDENTIAL PRECEDENTS

This bunch have a somewhat strange grasp of the import of the Presidency. It seems that the incoming President is going to take on something of an executive role, running a couple of social policy-affecting committees and generally being...

OH, THAT'S CULTURE, IS IT?

On Friday, we broke a long-standing resolution to forego the populist pleasures of Xarabank. Not to put too fine a point on it, whenever I've watched even a few minutes of it (not that on Friday we watched much more than that) I've been struck by...

SIMPLY DISGUSTING

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...

AND HERE’S A ROOSTING CHICKEN

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...

OH WHAT A SURPRISE

Way back a few years and a bit, the Nationalist Government had proposed the impeachment of Judge Anton Depasquale after he had decided not to attend to his duties for many, many months in protest, if memory serves, over the introduction of the...

OVER THE WEEKEND

It's funny how the PM seems to think he can get away with things by doing them over the weekend.  What does he think, that we won't check out the news and won't react to the little stunts he pulls? I mean, come on, appointing Mr Joe Debono Grech,...
