Let's sack this one

The Director General of the GRTU has been involved in all sorts of stuff in his most varied and colourful life, even going as far as being a PN candidate in the MEP elections. I know all the accusations leveled against him are still pending...

Come on let’s do some resigning—just like the Brits

In my time—which is a long time ago—the BBC was a big name to look up to. They had it all: proper reporting, proper English, proper manners. Propriety sometimes taken to boring limits. Then modernity struck. The ratings game infected the Beeb too.

Life’s a bumpy bus ride

Life’s tough being a politician and even tougher being a Prime Minister. You say one thing which is wrong—very wrong—and you get shoved into a wringer for a few eternities. People have shoved enough dirt, fun and stuff about Gonzi’s close shave...

It's all about politics stupid

Someone asked me what I think will happen in the deputy-leadership contest of the PN. I can't understand why I was targeted with such a question. I've never understood a thing about politics and every time I say anything about it I hear a few...

These are interesting times

Some great twit once said that we live in interesting times. I definitely wish—and I know I’m repeating myself from my previous blog post—I lived in uninteresting, boring days where no €60 million sums were bandied about. What does one do with all...

Time for Malta to be bland

I’m sitting in a room, mercifully with no cigarette smoke puffing my way. Tonio Borg has been nominated to replace John Dalli as European Commissioner. May Dr Borg get the appointment endorsed by the EP—and may he be our blandest, dullest emissary.

Joseph declared King as Labour sweeps the billboards war

Elections are won by strange things. Obama in the US might get dumped as president for having a bad day when he debated with Mitt. So in theory the most potent man in the world could be the best debater but the lousiest decision-maker. Sounds...

The stuff of dreams

Let’s clear something which possibly needs clarifying: government is there to govern and the opposition to oppose. At the moment the former seems to have forgotten how to govern while the latter is more intent on staying mum for fear of uttering...

Great new space

It’s always a great thing to see quality spaces sprouting. The Mdina ditch was in such shambles that we hardly knew it existed. Now Zap! It’s been transformed into what sounds like a glorious piece of relaxing space. How great such plans are, what...

Fancy brainy lies

I’m not great at numbers—well actually I’m hardly great at anything. But give me figures and stocks and shares and IPOs and I really come a great cropper. So forgive me if I say something silly. I have no clue what the price of the Facebook (FB)...
