BABY DON'T YOU DRIVE YOUR CAR

I was going to write about the abolition (or is it?) of the secrecy surrounding the pimping of our citizenship, but I'll leave that for another time, just in case the Deputy PM thinks up something else. And, just as an aside on the secrecy thing,...

IT'S ONLY WORDS

Joseph Muscat, current Prime Minister, seems to labour under the impression that he can say anything and he will be believed, something on the lines of an ex cathedra pronouncement from Rome in the Middle Ages. He has the sheer gall, for instance,...

AT THE SETTING OF THE SUN

It might not be this evening after all but, bar the shouting and quorum calls permitting, the Passports for Bucks Bill will become law soon and the sun will set on an era at the end which I, for one, have seen my pride in my country, which rose to...

KOW TOW

Not that I'm a Mandarin-speaker or anything, or even that I have any idea if the phrase signifying subservient obeisance to the perceived whims of some foreigner or other is Chinese in the first place, but it's pretty much what the Chinese are...

BECAUSE I SAY SO, THAT'S WHY
