 We have a lot of buskers; even more so in these economically bad times (I prefer to call it BROL – Bankers Ruin Our Lives). It seems anyone with a slight affliction, wart, chipped fingernail or limp. Go without a wash for a few days, don’t shave (including the women) and feel it is ok to literally ask for money.

I have tried asking them instead, and boy does it screw them up. You get an almost incredulous look as if you have plagiarised their patented idea.

 This week, most of the news was coming out of London as the 12th Gibraltar Day was held at the Guildhall. Prior to that, at lunchtime, there was also a luncheon held for some 350 financiers (they don’t call them Bankers anymore – too many jokes).

 As a journo, I was invited to report on the day, and there are many elements of it which I believe merits its continuance. Even the Leader of the Opposition agrees, although naturally, he believes it can be done a lot cheaper than the £100K plus it currently costs. It could certainly be improved and it could, in my opinion, be used better to give Gibraltar the political profile we want, but I want a consultancy fee first. I will offer one freebie though, I’d invite the Spanish ambassador every year; wouldn’t that be a win-win situation?

 This week we’ve spent a lot of news-time learning more about the workings of the judiciary inside Gibraltar. Anabelle Desoiza’s ongoing travails against her disciplinary case is becoming more tangled than the bedraggled behind of welsh sheep. Do they or don’t they talk to each other? Well of course lawyers do, it’s how justice and plea-bargaining works; but if implications are true, maybe the dictionary definition of collusion has a different meaning here.

 This week, the news has ranged from our tiny little plot as far as the U.N, where no doubt the GSLP politicians enjoyed their small jaunt via the Labour Party conference.

 The Chief Minister has also been out and about at the Conferences, holding his party’s ‘parties’. It was pleasing, at least, to see Fabian Picardo tweeting he was ‘glad to be home’ a mere couple of hours after landing. The cynics may doubtless feel it’s election year but if his biggest punt at a vote is a tweet about being glad to be back, then Peter can stop spending now and join Facebook.
