‘Avoid engaging the government’

Joseph Muscat’s secret strategy of “disengagement” was unexpectedly put into peril this week when his MEPs were caught off-guard by a Spanish socialist MEP who quizzed Louis Galea over the squandering of funds inside the Auxiliary Workers Training Scheme and the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools. >>

Caution still warranted

As economists argue over the Prime Minister’s recent claim that Malta “has come out of the recession” – each citing different sets of statistics, which at a glance bear little resemblance to the reality as it appears at ground level – the man in the street may well find himself wondering whether he is in fact living in the same country. >>


The politics of disengagement
Joseph Muscat promised an earthquake of change, and has since transformed several of the Labour Party’s former distinctive traits – including its militancy. Has Labour gone soft under its new leader? >>

Film Review:
By Teodor Reljic

Whatever happened to Alice?

The clock is ticking, for bad blood

Here comes the boom

Squeal at the moon

Froggy business

Thrilling… as expected

Catch-22 meets Don Quixote in Iraq

So average it hurts

There’s no getting Caine

No need to ask, he’s a smooth operator

To be seen in 3D at all costs

For absent friends…

She’s a mean, mean girl

Picking up the pieces

Undead funny

Blue moon, I saw you standing alone

Historical flashpoints

It’s a long way up

An evolution in grief

The hazards of love

I’m not there

From rags to…?

The flakes and the fury

Good forecast for gluttons

Aliens - out!

Lost in translation

A basterd’s work is never done

Toy stories

Going off the rails on a crazy

The rodents in the

Revenge of the nerd

As queer as you’d expect

The story of L

Too much is never enough

Dubya’s last stand

Keep it Simple, Stupid

On a political prisoner

Guess who’s back?

Kid's stuff? Not really

She was once a girl,
believe it or not

A howling shame

Putting the dead in deadline


Delicious double-crosses
