  • Have a good look

    Have a good look

    Pick up a hard copy of the Times, or take a look at the PDF version online. Count the number of column inches that exhort you to vote to rid our country of Premier Muscat and his pocket-lining buddies.   Now do the same with the ones that suggest...

  • In stark simplicity

    In stark simplicity

    Leave aside the awesome stench of corruption that is fouling the air that you breathe.  Of course, unless you're an octogenarian self-obsessive who simply will not admit he was massively wrong four years ago, or an equally obsessive media operator...

  • Pots rest on three legs

    I couldn't resist using the "fuq tlieta toqghod..." saying, after Friday's Xarabank wipeout of Premier Muscat at the hands of Simon Busuttil. This is not because of the popular perception that there are three musketeers involved in the shenanigans...

  • We're in a bad place

    We're in a bad place

    Given my venerable age, I am often up at fourish, and I succumb to the temptation to check out the portals. On Daphne Caruana Galizia's blog, what seems to be the reason for Premier Muscat calling an early election leapt out at me. The signs that...

    The coalition of the willing

    There was an interesting snippet of news a couple of days ago, pretty much drowned out by the stench of alleged corruption wafting out of Castille. (Editorial note, you have to say "alleged" if you want to avoid vexatious libel cases) The snippet...

  • On taking buses

    On taking buses

    Breaking long-standing promise to myself, like many I watched the latest episode of Xarabank: hence this blog, because what's the use of putting yourself through something like watching Xarabank if you can't use it for some fun?   Thankfully, the...

  • If this, then that

    To my admittedly unscientific mind, as soon as mention was made of Pilatus Bank, the powers that be had three scenarios open to them. Please feel free to comment if other options present themselves to you. Scenario 1 There were never any documents...

  • On supping with devils

    On supping with devils

    If I were to be asked, but there's no reason why I should be, I'd say that people like Sandro Chetcuti, described in other areas of the media as a "captain of the construction industry" (evoking images of a behemoth ploughing ahead regardless of...

  • It's in the woods, it's in the woods

    It's in the woods, it's in the woods

    If memory serves, the above, uttered breathlessly, is heard in some exemplar of the "B Movie" genre, just before some particularly brainless teenagers are cut down in their prime. No matter, there are plenty of teenagers in the world and anyway,...
