Go on PN: de-fence

Let’s put aside the gay marriage débacle and the hunting referendum issue. The PN is yet again nicely sitting on a fence heading straight for the fence-sitting award for lifetime dedication to be seen and not heard to have an opinion. But there is...

Alfred the great

Let’s say it out loud and clear. Dr Alfred Sant was way beyond a political failure, although, if the full truth be told, he did get rid of the old thugs of the Mintoffian era, moved his party out of antediluvian times and got his cronies to wear...

Rules of our country

A foreigner comes to Malta to check out our hunting ways and our hunters try scaring the daylights out of the foreigner. Serves him right for interfering in our affairs. Go back home we don’t need you thank you very much. The police take the...

Nothing sticks to Teflon Joe

So much happens on this little dot that sometimes I think we really are the world’s belly button. The man—the Prime Minister I mean—has routed the PN, embraced the gay community and is now on a direct course to get us all a bit higher than we all...

Depressing issues

Often I think I miss the point because I’m daft or because I might have missed out on some lecture or article written by one of our island’s bigwigs. A President has been chosen unanimously. When the Prime Minister announced his choice of...

From a god to a con

Keep silent and be damned

There are times when silence—that commodity we hardly know the meaning of today—should rule. At times like these when the horrible tragedy of Lisa Marie Zahra has sent shockwaves around the island and beyond, we should all be silent, stop and...

All this gas

I’m no expert so I’ll just say very little about gas and tankers and sites chosen. The previous government - those PN ruffians - were arrogant, didn’t care about people’s health and they did anything they thought made sense even if others, more...

Bashing by celebrating

This is the year of anniversaries, so our dear government announced when it took over from the PN. Great stuff has been promised us for the 35th commemoration of Freedom Day, the tenth of EU accession and the 50th since we attained...

It’s cuckoo time again

I’m never sure if we did end up voting for Alfred Sant’s Swiss offer after all. When Malta was gripped by referendum fever—to join or not to join that was the question—Alfred Sant was leader of the MLP, Joseph Muscat was a cub and all were rabidly...
