  • Pre-budget twaddle

    Pre-budget twaddle

    My knowledge of economics, as I have admitted on more than one occasion, is perhaps equivalent to someone as thick as two short planks, as my economics teacher in Sixth Form back some forty-five years was wont to remark. This does not mean that I...

  • What a coincidence - not

    I hold no brief for Beppe Fenech Adami, and if he’s acted in any manner that is not in accordance with the standards of propriety to which he is entitled to hold everyone else, he would have to be answerable for this. However, on the evidence thus...

  • Now try listening...

    "Now Hear This", I was reminded in a documentary yesterday, is the peremptory introduction used on the Tannoy on American Navy ships when the bosses want to make something known, usually that the chocolate pecan pie is a bit stale this week or...

  • To boycott or not to

    To boycott or not to

    Unphased by the deafening chorus of "are you nuts?" that greeted his notion that a boycott of the Gasan and Fenech commercial empires was on the cards as popular revenge for their monstrous constructions (I was going to use a different word, but...
