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...

Justice delayed is justice denied

Love him or hate him, Franco Debono was right about the judicial system. He was right when he said that our judicial system was in shambles and that it was in urgent need of reform. Whoever disagreed with him ON THAT must have been wired to the...

Men do it differently

The dead of winter seems to be over, and with it the pits of small island politics. I don’t know which one of these I’m happiest about but, the combination of the two is making me break into dances of joy wherever I am. Of course the political...

Marriage saves lives

I was just sitting quietly at my desk typing and working away when, suddenly, I was startled by a loud cheer from the office next door. Being Valentine’s Day I thought that someone must have gone down on one knee and proposed. Considering that...

What’s in a name?

Let me set the record straight from the start - last night I was rooting for Gianluca Bezzina all along. I was rooting for the lad not because he’s related to me, nor because I had heard his song before, and certainly not because he is a medical...
