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...

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...
