BAGS, ANYONE?

It's been a few days, but actually not that many, since I spread my deep wisdom amongst you - the impression I had was that it was almost a couple of weeks, but on checking I found that it was only last Monday. Time flies when you're having fun...

APPLES AND ORANGES

Quote from another section of the media: " The Labour Party has slammed today’s edition of the Nationalist Party’s newspaper il-Mument for having “recycled a blatant lie that had been categorically denied by the government last Sunday”." What they...
