A different set of clowns

The Labour Party spokesmen have developed a mantra echoed all over the country which, in various guises and forms, goes something like: the PN has learnt nothing and the PN seem to have forgotten they got a drubbing. Talk of being magnanimous in...

Women unleashed

Let me start with an admission: my subject today is women, their rights and some crass stupidity which dictates that they be given preferential treatment. So if you’re easily offended, a women libber, or one of the two extremely lucky—or is that...

The first prime minister who hates politics

Nothing bores people more than politics. That’s what Joseph Muscat realised and that is why he won by an amazing landslide. Lawrence Gonzi and his clique were not just passé, they were obsessed with politics. They spoke and lectured us ad nauseam...

Surprising massages

I’m at the great age where, if I am given a massage, I have to pay for it. And any extras or happy endings are definitely not due to my biceps, beauty or bearing. Only my wallet could be the attraction. So what am I on about besides age and its...

What’s wrong with Jason?

Ever since I could use the few brain cells I was given, I have realised that, try as we do, we humans are never objective. Some might be better at it than others, but I think that, just as death and taxes are certainties in life, being subjected...

A cat’s tale

How macabre and horrid to crucify a cat, probably in broad daylight on a statue of Our Lady. Now I don’t like cats but the last thing I’d ever do is go around crucifying them. So I feel unreserved contempt for whoever did it. Someone even went as...

What happens post-Gonzi?

One of the funniest comments I have heard was from a hard-core PN supporter I met recently. He beamed a smile which beautifully belied the feeling of being thumped and announced that the next general election is only 59 months away as a month has...

What is wrong with this country?

Are we back to the scary eighties when soċjalisti aka marmalja took over the country’s culture and turned it into propaganda crap? I’m seething away in horror at what is already happening just a few weeks after the labour victory at the polls.
