We are history

Let’s talk history. Even if we keep hearing that we should not talk of what happened then and only talk of now, I think in the final analysis history can’t escape us. After all, if one had to be exact, we are only history and the present is but a...

Red-carded by the EU?

I’m so stumped I can’t speak. Tongue-tied. Too many people saying the same thing. All abroad seem to be laughing at us and our crazy scams of citizenship sales. So I have still said my bit and shall carry on to say more. This PL promised us open...

Hail to a liberty hero

I hate making a fuss and I hate writing about the same subject twice. But above all else I hate any attempt—direct, indirect or by stealth—to stifle our liberty. So excuse me if I harp on again about the hero of the moment, Norman Vella. Yes, from...

The road to perdition

Let me be honest. I’m always honest—promise—but this time I want to be honester. I’m worried. I’m worried sick. The things that are happening around us are supremely worrying. Malta is getting back to the times when we were gripped by fear. I’m...

Wake up and smell the pong

Walking merrily on the Sliema promenade a few days ago was perfect bliss. Summer stifling heat is over, the hordes of walkers are less taxing and the brain actually works. But the pong from the horses’ doings, even if less horrid than in the heat,...

Dom is back

Let’s talk figures. Our China connection is going to give us—wait for it—1,635,122,429Yuan (that for the less knowing is what they call their money in Reddish China). Yes that is going to be what Joseph Muscat scooped in one quick deal with the...

Details be damned

The devil is in the detail as I have always been told. Then you wake up one day and realise that this is a quotable quote which has been wrongly quoted and attributed. One of those know-all sites told me that the actual quote talked of God and his...

When money is no problem

The PN is beleaguered enough. It lacks a soul, it sounds rudderless and its stalwart followers have either morphed into switchers or gone AWOL. Its finances are in a shambles and its future a misty blue. Accusations and more accusations of...

Count on the court

I have blind faith in anything connected to the courts of justice. I never doubt anything anyone in the judiciary says or utters. To all people of little faith I say go hence and flee, hide and don’t show your faces. Our court is made up of...
