It was galling to see Konrad Mizzi sauntering into the Parliamentary chamber last Friday like he had a new set of golf clubs to show at the club.

Daphne Caruana Galizia had been dead less than 4 days. Simon Busuttil was addressing the House, visibly moved and shaken, honouring her memory.

Konrad Mizzi saunters in with the decorum and gravitas of a toddler not quite ready for potty training. With a smirk on his face like this was the happiest day of his life, loudly and offensively, he purred ‘Good Morrrrniiiing!’

Such an infant. In the glee of getting away with his crimes, he cannot even pretend solemnity and restraint.

Claudette Buttigieg was presiding the Chamber. “Onorevoli Mizzi, jekk jogħġbok!”. She kept the decorum of her office though few decent people would have shown so much restraint. His being there alone is contempt of decency. His being all so cheery about it is beyond redemption.

Wipe that smirk off your face!
