LABOUR IN ITS UGLINESS

This Citizenship for Sale scandal has brought Labour out in its true colours and no mistake. To start with, from what Henley's people have been saying to practitioners, though this is not evidence I would care to put forward in court, since it is...

JOSEPH HE SAY, JOSEPH HE MEAN

Speaking in London at The Malta Individual Investor Programme, the Prime Minister said a number of things that gave me the idea that a translation was needed. I hope not to cause the Commissioner of Police any inconvenience, and trust he won't...
