The bully is getting more bullish

The electorate gave him an unassailable majority in Parliament. Franco, Gonzi’s thorn, says all is fine and wondrous with the Joseph Muscat government. It seemed as if the Prime Minister, in his most controversial act yet, was going to return the...

Go Johnny go

While we drift slowly into summer sizzling mode. the politicians who should be leading by example are doing unbelievable harm to our reputation and status. It isn’t enough that Joseph Muscat has embarked on a mission in the immigration field that...

Are we racists?

We live in interesting times. Joseph Muscat fired a warning shot against the EU with talks of vetoes and other scaremongering. To me it sounded more like just a short step away from raving racism.  Muscat himself said that this might sound...
