AND THIS LITTLE PIGGY...

Virtually everyone and his sister is up in arms about the proposed (proposed? decided more like) siting of the Valletta Flea Market to Ordnance Street, cheek by jowl with the Piano Building. When one writes "cheek by jowl" one of course means...

JUDGING WORK

In my real life, I have to interact with the Industrial Tribunal quite a bit. Everyone involved in cases there always gives basically the same respect due to a member of the judiciary to the chairpersons of the Tribunal, which is no bad thing at...

ENOUGH, NOW

A young biker lost his life on Saturday evening. I am a biker, as is my son, and it is in the nature of biking that when a brother or sister goes down, you feel it more keenly, and when your nearest and dearest are out on the road, each news...

BLOODY AMATEURS

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has the right to that title by dint of a resounding victory.  He achieved this victory partly on the back of a media campaign that combined slick sound-bites, snappy come-backs and sharp visuals, helped no end by a...

ROOFING OVER

To read certain columnists, that blinking open space, part of Piano's design for City Gate, remains the be-all and end-all of everything that matters in the country. In fact, the debate has expanded to take in the roof, rather than lack thereof,...

HAPPY NOW?

As I believe I had reported, if not, I'm doing it now, at a party before the elections, I had come across a gentleman (and I use the term loosely) who had said that he would not be voting (code for "I will be voting Labour") because "I hate...

SWEEPING NEW BROOMS IN

This is not an analysis of the merits of the new incumbent of the post of Chief Cop, or of those of his predecessor.  That can be left to commentators who have a more direct interest in, and knowledge of, matters constabulary. What do you mean,...
