A sham, a crying shame

When you watch a movie with hardly any plot and an unending series of gags, laughs and funny situations, usually that film turns boring and senseless. Few will love it; fewer still will laugh at its cracks. This is what seems to be happening to...

In polls we trust

Trust (in somebody/something) is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as the belief that somebody/something is good, sincere and honest and will not try to harm or trick you. Now hold on a minute. Can the dictionary be trusted? Because in the latest...

Of loons and more

I’m never sure whether this country is real or if we are living in a warped spoof of ourselves. In these trying times, in these horrid times where innocent lives are being lost throughout the globe, where everyone is at risk, we indulge in idiocy...

I weep for humanity

Some are saying pray for Paris, the dead and the maimed. Some are blaming religion, a creed. Some are saying let’s stop all immigrants from entering Europe because they cause mayhem, destruction. I too weep, like millions more, for France, for the...

Is that 36,000 growing?

36,000. To foreigners, unless they are very interested in our political intricacies, this is just a number. In Malta the number has magical, nearly-supernatural powers. It is a number that scares some beyond compare. All still remember it, all...

Switching swindlers

Switchers are kings and queens. They made Joseph Muscat. They gave him an unbelievable majority and they remain his life-blood. But by their nature they are fickle and could, on a whim, a whiff of scandal or through fear, switch back to the other...
