Time for another switch: from billboards to other boards

Buzz words make the world go round and the heart grow fonder. Some actually make the brain pale into ignominy. But who cares what real meanings of words are? As long as we think we make sense it’s never nonsense. Well, enough with these riddles,...

Only ray of hope?

I really don’t know what is happening to the PN. This glorious group of people who masterminded Independence and EU membership and a few other magical feats—like upgrading us seamlessly into the 21st century from a third-world country—now seems...

Even vermin deserve better

Let me do what I promised myself and be as objective as possible about the PL in Government. Let me in fact be a bit more than that and promise, on my word of honour, that I will be lenient and try to close a few thousand eyes in my analysis. This...

The changes that prove we never change

So, as some wit once put it succinctly, the more things change the more they remain the same. No, it isn’t just my writing or my wit that is the same old stuff—it’s that exciting subject politics I’m referring to. Will this be a rant against Super...

Go go Gonzi

The people have spoken. And how they have. A resounding go Gonzi, go away. To people my age, or thereabouts, the words go-go are slightly naughty. Go-go dancers were the then tasselled strippers or lap-dancers, to give them their modern...

Let’s keep the hunters at bay

Let me get one thing straight. This election campaign has had its lows, its even lower lows and now the Labour Party agreement with the hunters is surely the depths of the pits. The environment is already rather on the precarious side, our...

What if an eagle lands on Parliament?

An election looms—yawn and triple yawn—and we can’t seem to get it out of our system. You can run and you can hide but the election fever will get you. Or the leaflets will get to you. And can someone tell me how many billboards can be set up per...

Is it me or is the world going barmy?

When politics used to be compared to a circus I never thought it was the clowns they were referring to. Now our politicians aren’t all just clowns—some of them in fact make less sense than the worst buffoons and dress up just like them in garish...

Carnival reigns

Let’s see what can I blog about. Hmmm what about politics? Mind numbingly boring. Never thought so much can be said and so much written and be utter bilge. But even saying all this is sending me serenely to sleep so let’s move on and talk about...

My objective pledge

Let’s get this straighter than straight before people say I’m bluer than Gonzi. I believe the PN team in Government has been a rather tired, jaded lot. They have scored more auto-goals than would have been dreamt possible by any bizarre...
