The biggest question

2021-09-16T10:59:21+02:00Thu, 16th Sep '21, 10:59|

There are small questions like which is the next restaurant I must try. There are greater questions like will my salary last till the end of the month. Will I have a job next month? Who will win the next election? Will Daphne’s killers get what they deserve? Where is the next terrorist attack going [...]

Byron Camilleri has a case to answer

2021-09-16T10:08:55+02:00Thu, 16th Sep '21, 10:08|

Now that prosecutors have opened a case against prison warders for culpability in the suicide of a prisoner in their custody, the question of political responsibility needs to be addressed. This country is in a perpetual state of election fever. Even four years away from a general election the government are too afraid of losing [...]

Our woman in New York

2021-09-16T09:26:11+02:00Thu, 16th Sep '21, 09:26|

She calls it multi-tasking. But really our Ambassador in New York, Vanessa Frazier, is posting on her Instagram account her contempt for the General Assembly of the United Nations. So she gets bored and switches football on her phone letting ambassadors from the rest of the world mumble on while she ignores them. As the [...]

GUEST POST: In B.E.D with Yorgen

2021-09-16T08:39:21+02:00Thu, 16th Sep '21, 08:39|

I am sorry for having stayed away from my computer for these past several days. If you will indulge me, I was struck by the most devastating illness of them all, a man-cold, from which I am still recovering. I realise now I haven't had a man-cold for nearly two years. What with all the [...]

THE SUNDAY TIMES: Truth will breach the flimsy walls

2021-09-16T07:00:49+02:00Thu, 16th Sep '21, 07:00|

From my article in The Sunday Times last Sunday: "There, without qualification and reservation, were the words we’ve been saying all along. But, this time, someone from the Labour Party was saying them. And that matters. It matters because when truth is shared across tribal divides we can live together as a nation. "Miriam Spiteri [...]
