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...

The rains cometh

So some rain fell on the Maltese islands. It even hailed, some said. Big deal I hear you say. Yes, big deal—the rain not only swept away the summer dust, and cleared some debris but it also caused havoc all over. The only thing that saved the...

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...
