Saturday News Roundup

Spotlight on today's news. Starting with our beloved government. It makes me laugh. Constantly. The next great achievement of the men in power will be that "Gozo will stay whole". Thankfully the beloved homeland will not be blown into smithereens. It will stay as one. Great. Sadly the 'achievement' is simply the government going back on its steps of creating a two-district Gozo. A better title to the article would have been "Idiots admit to getting it wrong". But then we would not have been sure whether it referred to the MPs or the journalists from Strickland House.

Ambiguity is lovely. So is the idea that the government wants to build wind farms. I could not help wondering weather farming the wind that gets generated within parliament would not be more beneficial to the islands. I mean nowadays they use the heat generated from compost, cows fats and I don't know what else. If we found a way to control all the energy and wind that is expended by politicians and journalists we'd be selling energy to Dubya. Unfortunately if the whole energy garnering thingy was possible it would also be true that Dubya would be prime producer.

Marshall was right about Maltese film viewers. They seem to have been duped into buying an advance verision of the Da Vinci ilm. They are falling for a Frenchie documentary about the whole hullaballoo that probably concludes that Jeezus Christ is the son of Jacques Rene'... not mine... Chirac's.

Finally slap on the back for Floriana who conjured up three goals to make up for their earlier deficits and thus safeguard their Premier League Status. Darn... is it just Juve that is going down?

I'm off to Metz. Will be back in Lux tomorrow to watch the surreal possibility of Juve winning a scudetto that will never be theirs. I can't wait... for the mundial to begin!

Truly, those who thought you were a translator not a lawyer ought to be forgiven considering that you come up with things like "the government going back on its steps of creating a two-district Gozo".

Or else the populist pitch (politicians and journalists -- wow, that's about as tired as the Templars in a conspiracy) is intending to lay the ground work for a candidacy in some forthcoming election ...

Jacques René Zammit a dit…

Truly, those who do not think you are an apologist have a long long way to go.

Fausto Majistral a dit…

Ah yes, with all the endorsements of political candidates I'm doing these days ...
