Budget 2021 may be minister Scicluna’s last budget

 - Budget 2021 - Oct 19 SHARE ON:

Tonight’s budget may Finance Minister Edward Scicluna’s last according to Labour Party insiders, with this budget being the 74-year-old’s eighth one.

Following the aftermath of the Caruana Galizia murder and his own testimony, Scicluna told inside sources that he wanted to leave his ministerial role.

With Miriam Dalli and Clyde Caruana’s entry into Parliament, this could hint at a serious reshuffle for the Labour Party.

Vibram and Balenciaga collab on a “Toe” footwear collection

 - Art - Oct 19 SHARE ON:

This iconic collaboration consists of two limited-edition sneaker styles as well as a high-heeled style, both made from recycled knit.

This concept was taken from Vibram’s patented FiveFingers shoe style, a flexible sole on the foot that separates each toe, allowing for better tactile perception when moving — but with a twist adding Balenciaga’s bounce and height in an innovative way. 

A limited number of Balenciaga Toe shoes are now available on Balenciaga’s official website as well as a few selected stores worldwide.

Bernard Grech meets with Prof. Charmaine Gauci

 - COVID-19 - Oct 19 SHARE ON:

In a recent meeting with Professor Charmaine Gauci, Bernard Grech praised the Superintendent for Public Health for her work and stated that any and all decision having to do with COVID-19 had to be up to the Health Authorities and not the Prime Minister. 

The newly-elected PN Leader expressed his faith in the health authorities and said that it is a shame that all of their good work is contrasted by the Prime Minister’s statements which brought about the increase in cases.

Grech will be presenting the Opposition’s reaction to the national budget later tonight.
