    Timmy Gambin and moral despicability

    A couple of weeks ago we got news that the Dutch were the tallest people on Earth. Averaging 183cm (that’s 6ft for Imperial measure folk), they are literally head and shoulders above other nations. But we seem to be getting there. In fact we can...

    State-funded cyberbullying

    No, I am not going to go on about the amount of money spent by PBS on a three-minute ditty as Anton Attard tries to realise his long-standing dream of winning the Eurovision. More of that another time. No, this column is about the Prime Minister's...

  • High flying adored

    High flying adored

    OK, I’ll admit it: I love skyscrapers. Ever since I spent a couple of days in the city that doesn’t sleep, I have been fascinated with those tall lean fingers reaching out to snatch the clouds. Whether they be the iconic Twin Towers from which I...

    Snubbed by a 'commercially sensitive nature'

    A few years back, in 2012 to be precise, when the BBC thought fit to bring out that family heirloom, better known as Englebert Humperdinck, to prove his terpsichorean powers in the Eurovision Song Contest (he returned with a total of 12 points),...

    Let the people sing!

    Here we go again. Another year, another series of conspiracy theories, another stab at the language issue, another case of friends and enemies. MPs are once more calling for a ban of this prime example of western liberal corrupt values, and a...

    I can't believe it's not Panama

      That’s it. I’ve tried really hard to avoid it, but I must admit, it’s too big to ignore anymore. I have to admit this is something which is the talk of the town for thousands of families around the island; it will have an impact on our society...

  • And finally... some good news!

    A week is a long time in politics. But worry not, like the PBS news division, I will not be covering the shenanigans over in Panama because a week is a long time in culture too. Since last I wrote, it seems I have become a star of the plumbing...

    Worry not V18 - the cavalry will soon be here!

    You have to hand it to them. The administrative staff at V18, I mean. These last five years haven’t been an easy ride. Things started off on a less than spectacular note with architect David Felice at the helm, and the almost invisible Wayne...

  • Lights, camera, inaction!

    It just had to be. It’s just my luck. Just when I decide my New Year resolution is to be nice to others, and so I heap some praise on a government institution, the Malta Film Commission goes and spoils it all! Seriously guys, couldn’t you wait a...

  • A happy new year?

    Having ended the year on a rather sour note, I thought best to start it on a more positive one. After all it does seem to be the word of the month. So let us raise our glass to the Malta Film Commission, which has just ended a stellar year...
