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...

Moses’ and his brother’s tablet giveaways

Well well well. Moses went up a mountain and came down with two tablets. And in Malta it wasn’t just Joseph and his amazing offers of tablets to schoolchildren—now it’s Lawrence’s turn to do the same and offer manna and more manna. Moses tapped...

The new Moses and his tablets

This man Joseph is definitely going to pull us out of our doldrums. He rocks. No, I’ll rephrase that—he super-rocks. He loves everyone like a modern hippy. He’s going to solve our deficit, save our crumbling economy and, together with his trusted...

Lancing the boil

Energetic testimonials

God bless this country. It definitely rocks. Now the Labour brigade has announced to us that Jesmond Mugliett approves of their energy plans. Glory be for such wisdom. As I’ve said before, I’m quite ready to be convinced—however not like some...

Electro tricks and trickery

Now it’s full-out war on the battlefields about electric and water tariffs.. I am hardly an expert in spin or in matters electrical. I can hardly change a bulb without a frenzied call to the power station for them to switch off their mainframes...

And let the games begin. But please let them be bloody - January 6, 2013

My last blog post of the year was all about how close we are to heaven. Malta, that is. Now we’re back in election firework time so I am sure we are going to be given proof that if God exists He surely lives on our rock. Where else would He have...

Il listrina what a great country

Malta is paradise. I know I’ve said this often but so what if I repeat myself? Sounds good and we are in the season of jollity and stuffing so my little repetition—which needs and must be repeated—won’t go amiss. After all Christmas comes every...
