With his drink in one hand and the phone in another while the driver navigates the lengths of Malta’s Coast Road, the potential hazards and threats resulting from such a decision are endless.

The video, sent in by @fixmalta, is a prime example of what one should not do in Malta’s roads as it can result in putting multiple lives in danger in the already jam-packed streets of Malta.

Fans calling for Ryan Gosling to be next James Bond

Jul 26 2022 Share

Several fans of Ryan Gosling and the new Netflix action film The Gray Man, have been calling for the film’s protagonist to be the next James Bond. For the first time in years, the role of James Bond is currently vacant after Daniel Craig’s contract expired after the 2021 film No Time to Die.

As of right now British actors Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and even Harry Styles have all been rumoured to play the iconic secret agent. However after watching what Ryan Gosling can do in the new action film, many fans are asking for this casting to happen and usher in a new era of James Bond.

One fan on Twitter wrote “I’m all for Tom Hardy being the new James Bond. But after watching The Gray Man on Netflix. Ryan Gosling would be perfect for the role.”

In an interview with Sky News, Gosling admitted that he was aware of the comparisons saying “I think you can’t kind of step into it without those comparisons and we even acknowledge it in the movie.”

“I mean there’s one point where he says [the alias] 007 was taken – I like the idea that this movie existed in a world that was aware that there were Bond movies and this was a different take on it, a less glamorized version of it.”

He however denied the notion that there has been contact for him to play Bond, even joking around with the speculation saying “I’m not sure that they want a Canadian in that role,”

Do you think Ryan Gosling would make a good James Bond?

Nationalist Party MP Darren Carabott has delivered a passionate public statement in light of recent comments surrounding the central villages of Hamrun and Marsa.

In a Facebook post published on Monday, Carabott stated that he is fed up of reading and hearing such comments against Hamrun and Marsa. Whilst referencing the series of crimes occurring in the two villages in the past few weeks, Carabott stated that the villages themselves are also victims and suffer from a stigma, with public comments shunning the locations contributing to such stigma.

Joseph Muscat gives government 5 recommendations to handle inflation

Jul 25 2022 Share

Former Prime Minister and now chairman of MPFCA, Joseph Muscat has recently posted on Linked.In his views on inflation in the country. He also recommended  and put forward five hard facts towards not only the government but also stakeholders.

He said that in his opinion the analysis on inflation rates tend to be more superficial and most of the time focus more on figures found in headlines rather than reports.

He went on to say that at 6.1%, Malta’s inflation is the lowest in the Eurozone countries, because of the  government’s policy to absorb energy and fuel price shocks. Even though this strategy is expensive in Muscat’s opinion it only helps local consumers and business.

However he later goes on to state that without energy and fuel contributions to inflation, Malta has one of the highest cost of living in Europe, the eight highest in the Eurozone to be precise.

He also recommended to  the government that they simulate the economy without fear. This means not being cautious to decrease spending, increase taxes and make further controversial decisions which will work in the long run.

Muscat also points out the need for policy and fiscal measures aimed at the transport and logistics part of the economy. This is because an increase in transport will not work in the long run due to Malta’s geographic size.

The former Labour Leader ends his post by motivating trade unions and employers representatives to tackle the small minority of economic players who  are taking advantage of the current global narrative to artificially inflate prices.
