What Dr Muscat is creating “is a movement not a party because a party has its principles… Everyone is being allowed in like sheep and goats as long as we win. I am sorry to see my party (going down this road). You cannot accept everyone, without any vetting. Those who are being pushed most are the turncoats. Others, like me, are sidelined and the turncoats are raised sky-high. Turncoats do...

Austin & the two Emmanuels
Minister Gatt has taken note of the hunger strike announced by Emmanuel Cini. He has asked Arriva to speak to the hunger striker and try to ensure that his ends are met. We know this from a report in the Times in which Gatt’s actions were transmitted to the Times by a spokesman for Dr Gatt. Minister Gatt did not speak directly to the press. He did not speak to Emmanuel Cini either. If the...
“Just three days after filing a judicial protest objecting to “unreasonable” bus routes, lawyer Joe Brincat has received more than 60 e-mails from disgruntled commuters complaining about unnecessarily lengthy journeys.” 20 e-mails per day and 1 hunger strike? I’m sure I’d collect more complaints about Bondiplus, Xarabank and Affari Taghna if I took the same initiative...

“He pointed to the PL’s position on divorce, saying that neither he nor the party had “moved a millimetre” throughout the unfolding of the referendum and its aftermath.” - DOES HE BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS? WHAT EFFING POSITION?.

“i think that the maltese goverment PN,and LP,should work togther and send all these so called migrants back where they came from because in twenty years time these people gone take over our country and tell us what to do because they BREED LIKE RABBITS - send them home!!!” - the idiots in this country never cease to amaze me.

Arriva - the PL bluff
“Addressing a news conference this morning, PL spokesmen Joe M. Sammut and Stefan Buontempo did not say how they expected the government to shoulder its responsibility. However, asked whether they were calling for resignations, they said they would make their requests clearer eventually.” - sometimes just saying “Sorry” might turn out to be enough. “We’re...
Bastjan Up in Smoke
“Qormi Local Council threatens to call off San Bastjan fireworks show as Arriva refuses to cede a yard for a total of eight hours for the setting off of fireworks.” - there’s something about this Arriva that I definitely like.

Speaking in Parliament during the Divorce debate, Dr Gatt said one would have to be short-sighted if he did not see that the next steps after divorce, would be efforts...
Over the past few years Luxembourg has developed its own version of Malta’s Paceville (a smaller, more sanitised and controlled version in fact). Basically the land occupied by a former brewery in the picturesque Clausen district has been converted into a series of trendy clubs and bars collectively known as “Les Rives de Clausen”. From today’s news: A security guard at...

Arriva worked. “Malta said this morning that most bus services are expected to operate with only minor delays this morning.”
It’s the rural affairs business again. It must be the most ill-defined ministerial portfolio of all time. Here goes our hapless Rural Affairs Minister again - this time it’s not Sliema but Malta’s capital CITY that has fallen under his scrutiny. Rural Valletta?

The electorate, will, this time round, be facing two major political parties...– Sure. A defining moment indeed. Will the electorate once again fall for the PLPN bluff?
From The Times: “This new attitude led to the prioritising of minority rights, thereby making the party far more inclusive and more European. Soon, it became all too evident that what the Leader of the Opposition had declared earlier on during his tenure was not mere rhetoric but hard facts. Senior Labour exponents have not shied away from taking the lead in affirming this political...

“Un attacco grave e assolutamente inaccettabile”: questo il commento del presidente dell’Inter Massimo Moratti sulla relazione con cui il procuratore federale Stefano Palazzi ha rilevato elementi di illeciti sportivi attribuibili all’Inter nel dossier di Calciopoli. “Palazzi si sbaglia” ha aggiunto Moratti.” Ma vuoi vedere che c’ai la squadra puttana?
“Clamorose, anzi clamorosissime le rivelazioni che provengono dalla relazione del procuratore Palazzi. Prime indiscrezioni riportare da Sky, riferiscono che L’Inter ha violato l’articolo relativo all’illecito sportivo. E’ quanto riportato dal procuratore Palazzi nelle sue motivazioni.
