I let many things slide. And I would have lest slide as well the baseless accusation that this post I put up a few days ago about Rosianne Cutajar was “a violent act of gender-based abuse”, having given it a spirited response on another blog post. Until I realised that the government agency set up [...]

They should say what they’re apologising for

Daniel Micallef having “no problem” with apologising to those who “feel hurt” for the behaviour of “the few” needs to be put against the background of what is this country deserves an apology. I’m not a man of a few words. But one can hardly say more than this screenshot of the news in this [...]

As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against [...]

Not the hardest word

And there we have it. Sorry is not, after all, the hardest word. Marie Louise Coleiro yesterday said that the Labour Party should apologise to people who assumed, wrongly, that the party was a moral organisation. Daniel Micallef, fast earning the reputation of being a good guy, said he would not have a problem saying [...]

In place of Last Supper exhibitions and masked penitents dragging chains around their ankles, it is now a new Maltese Easter tradition to behave as if no one is drowning in our waters. The Maltese government and army took an enormous risk over this weekend. They ignored reports of three boats in distress in our [...]

The third Godfather movie is unfairly maligned. Whatever your opinion is of Michael Corleone vainly seeking redemption, there’s a scene when Michael is trying to get his ex-wife to forgive him before heart disease kills him. She mocks his residual, self-servingly optimistic Catholic expectation that once you express regret for your sins, God will forgive [...]

Here’s another one who shows up to save us from ourselves. Watch this speech by Miriam Dalli a few days before the 2017 election projecting onto Simon Busuttil the guilt of her own party and her own party leader like a lab mouse for someone trying to prove Freud’s defence mechanisms. She says Simon Busuttil [...]

This series is worth your time. It is important to dig these up because one by one you’ll see Labour Party politicians wear a new skin and looking to convince you this has always been what they stood for. Whenever history is inconsistent with their narrative they will try to bury your memory of it. [...]
