Cocky Locky fed up to the tip of his beak with Chicken Little’s constant fixation that the ‘sky is falling’, scolded the little chick and told him ‘all right, if the sky is falling why doesn’t it hit me in the head?’
When this famous phrase was coined little did we know that Malta would end up with an opposition leader with very similar traits. Bernard spending most of his camping gazing at the sky either trying to remember what he promised or lamenting the now infamous drone. Natural no? Of course it is.
No one wants drones over their backyard, but come on, does this presumed aerial invasion need to continue featuring prominently in the Opposition’s campaign?

The moral of Chicken Little’s story not to jump to conclusions and predict calamity without justification could come very useful to Bernard Grech.
The Maltese electorate deserves better. Not many really care whether a drone went over your pool or not. What voters care about is how they will fare in the next five years. Whether they will be governed by someone who can’t even get an expression right let alone remember their own proposals, or by an incumbent Prime Minister that is taking Malta out of the greatest crisis in modern day with the largest economic growth within the EU block.
Bernard, before we close this piece, you may well start familiarising yourself with some other good phrases from Chicken Little, this could be a good one.
Run back! You’re never gonna make it!
You get it?
