Electrifying stuff

I’m so glad we had a thoroughly thought-out and planned roadmap for this country. The sketchy details we were supplied with before the election got us all so excited off we went to order it and dumped all our GPS systems, Google maps and any...

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...

In a world gone mad the less mad are the sanest. I have no doubt that winning an election by a mighty landslide and having enough extra MPs to allow you never to worry much about getting to Parliament on time would give any man—or woman—a terrible...

Of cats, rats and PN rotters

I’m never quite sure if I am living on our rock in quiet bliss or if I have fallen into a man-hole peopled by mad hatters led by madder politicians and some aspiring ones. I can’t promise I’ll mention them all as to be comprehensive would require...

Sweep them away

Ever since the Government led by Joseph Muscat swept into power it has acted like the proverbial broom: all has been action, super action in fact. Any criticism is taken really well and swept under the carpet by saying the others did the same—so...

Not the rump of Europe

Dear President von Rumpy, Welcome and the rest of the stuff we should tell all our nice EU heads. I think you know I love my own British humour. I laugh a lot and all the ones around me—they are called ministers and minions—laugh too. I hope they...
