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...

Sex tales

A wise young man once told me in a hushed tone, lest people thought we were in some secret rendezvous organising our same-sex marriage, that politics, unless laced with a ton of lascivious scandal, sucks big time. Sex, he went on, is all it takes...

Stooges taking over

I’m not sure what the gods have done to this country. Even some myopic diehard Nationalists felt some relief when the hell of the PN administration was thrashed into the gloom and the Labour Party took over Castille and the rest of Malta. As an...

Our great Energy Minister

Pre-election, the Maltese supremo for energy was one of the stars of Joseph Muscat’s team. He told us all was planned and ready to be implemented: what usually takes long to accomplish he was going to do super-fast. Obviously, for someone as...

Thoughts of a better new year

Happy New Year dear readers far and wide. Any size you are, any persuasion, any colour or creed, and any sexual propensity you might have or suffer from I bid you good things for this ending and the new beginning. These are times of expectancy—not...

Courting disaster

Christmas back in times of old when loons ruled and we were falling headlong into third worlds was a time for shocks. When I was young and socialists were in power we used to get a few bombshells every Christmas. It was a sort of celebration of...

Loons rule

I met a friend lately—a switcher who is the only one I know who still raves about the new government—who told me I’m too biased against Joseph Muscat and his team. I’m truly sorry. So I put hand on heart, asked myself if I am being fair. All I...

Give me a break

It’s the season to be jolly, so ho ho ho and happy holidays to all. But hold on—should your pre-booked holidays always be enjoyed? Now that is a question which I would like to answer with a resounding YES so that you will all think what a nice...
