The season’s begun. TVM is orphaned of Dissett and we have Bondi’s program to follow the hot topics. We’ve kicked off with MaidGate and an analysis of Tonio Fenech‘s slip regarding his home help. Rachel’s running around interviewing the MPs as per usual – why not a direct line with the MP’s every week asking them the question of choice? While the balance of the story was straightforward and simple – the tradition of non-tax paying maids vs the strict letter of the law we could not help but noticing one glaring flaw in the program.
The guest list:
- Joe Friggieri – philosophy teacher (ghalliem tal-filosofija)
- Toni Abela – lawyer /labour Vici-Kap
- Francis Zammit Dimech – lawyer/ PN MP
- Chris Cutajar – opinjonistà
Now. This was a case that kept bringing into question the issue of taxes and tax payments. Would it have been too much to bring a tax lawyer/ tax advisor to clarify certain issues on the programme? Do we really have to hear the “minghalija” (if I am not mistaken) and politically biased legal assessments of the guests?
And finally will Toni Abela spare us the “xamma ta’ korruzzjoni” business for the future? He is unable to stand bz his own allegations. What next? Xummiemu the investigator?
