Dads That Rock

There are different kinds of dads in this world and there’s no arguing that some are good and others are bad. Then you have nice ones, rude ones, strict ones, and embarrassing ones, those you call in any crisis, dads who will paint your house,...

100 days of nothing

I don’t believe that our prison rehabilitates inmates in any way. There I’ve said it, so bring it on. Just one visit to Corradino Correctional Facility is enough to have you convinced that there’s absolutely nothing correctional about it.  It is...

Why our law courts can’t cope

There are many things and reasons why our judicial system is up to its neck in a colossal mess. One of them is because we keep burdening it with useless and victimless cases that should be thrown out before they reach the first step of our law...

Douze Points for Malmo

There’s something really sad about all the hype that the Eurovision creates in Malta… it dies down way too quickly and it’s forgotten way too nippily. Believe me, I’m not a diehard fan of the show, in fact I generally dislike most of the songs,...

Identity Crisis

I have had it up to my stuffy nostrils with people constantly mixing apples and oranges in this country. Seriously, if I hear another person using the abortion argument when the debate is about the use of animals in circuses, I might do something...

Chiara’s Zarbun

I love Chiara, but I’m not quite sure I want anything to do with her Zarbun. Truth is, this artist is the epitome of natural talent, sheer determination and guts, and to top it all off she’s got a burning personality that makes it hard not to like...

Work Will Set You Free

I just came back from a super holiday in Berlin, but as much as I’m tempted to sit here and write about how amazing this city is, I won’t because I don’t think that my descriptive writing skills will ever do it justice. So I’ll just say one thing...

Behind a Great Woman...

Just like the Mintoff years I don’t remember much of the Thatcher years either. All I know about the two is what I’ve heard and read; ultimately second, third and fourth hand information. But as unreliable as such information can be, one thing is...

Life Lessons

For the past few weeks I’ve been working on an online arts auction in aid of charity. The aim is to fundraise enough money to send 15 under privileged boys on holiday during their summer holidays. The boys are aged between eight and 18 and are...
