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...

Birds’ brains, verbal traps and loopy loops

“He also told Times of Malta that a ‘technical loophole’ has been found that would allow the Government to present proposals to the European Union to allow bird trapping in autumn.” Can someone in their right senses please explain what the words...

Dr Gonzi: the time for dignity has gone

Time has been tough on Gonzi. His story sounds like a horror story—or rather a fairy-tale turned sour. He became leader of a party in full swing. He succeeded Eddie Fenech Adami, a giant of Maltese politics who hadn’t just tamed but had knocked...

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.

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...
