You thanked us for the honour: no sir, thank you for your service.

AS I WAS SAYING

Before the brown stuff hit the blades, I had put these thoughts together. They haven't been made irrelevant by the fact that the John Dalli story has been blasted off the front page by Joseph Muscat's dangerous brush with jingoistic...

OH, I SEE

Answering questions on Al Jazeera, and quoted on the Times this morning, the PM said he wanted Europe to “smell the coffee”. I make no comment about the tone adopted by the PM in the interview, he can’t help the sound of his voice, but come...

WE ARE NOT THUGS

I have not been overly impressed by Pope Francis' adoption of what - perhaps because I have become a touch cynical in my dotage - might be classified as an overly-demonstrative humility, though I admit it's a sight better than the pomp and...

COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN

Well, there you have it. PM Muscat not only doesn't know the difference between the just-removed chairman of the Malta Communications Authority, who was a non-executive chairman and earned an honorarium that reflected this, and his predecessor,...

THE ETHICS OF IT

With a certain degree of seemingly smug satisfaction, a section of the media has reported that the Police have decided that on the basis of the evidence there is no reason to prosecute former EU Commissioner John Dalli. Not being a criminal law...
