    Finding an alternative route

    It seems our newly wedded and newly crowned Minister for Transport wants to show us just how much he has rolled up his sleeves and got down to business. Either that or some EU funds are about to expire. Whichever it is, Ian Borg has decided that...

    The tricky question of loyalty

    So, finally, the Marriage Equality law has finally arrived. No, don’t worry, I am not going to rake over the debate of natural/traditional/pro-family versus liberal/progressive/equal-rights-for-all debate. Nor am I going to comment on how the...

    Of Nats, prats and pizza parlours

    After their painful thrashing at the polls, you would think that the politicos within the Nationalist Party would take a step back, pick up the pieces and reorganise themselves whilst doing what every opposition should do, hold the government in...

    Worried about Malta’s Destiny

    It was such a relief when, over the weekend, we could get away from the ever-mounting electioneering hysteria to sit back and enjoy the big, round, explosive, rich-bluesy voice of Destiny Chukunyere. Finally here was something the whole of Malta...

  • This election is not about the Panama Papers

    This election is not about the Panama Papers

    Or at least not just about the Panama Papers. This election is about saving journalists their jobs. You see, the thing is, this really was the government that kept on giving. And I’m not referring to the just announced minimum wage increase which...

  • At last, something Joseph and Simon can agree on

    At last, something Joseph and Simon can agree on

    With what seems to have become a daily deluge of claims and counterclaims, rumours, gossip and comments, and the increasingly fractious relationship between Muscat and Busuttil, it’s nice to report that the leaders of the two largest political...

  • New lamps for old

    New lamps for old

    One of my favourite stories as a kid was the ever popular Aladdin. It lay deep in my copy of the 1001 Arabian Nights (the kid’s version, I hasten to add, not the wonderfully explicit Richard Burton version). Most of us remember the story of the...
