From my The Sunday Times article today:
“As with the counter-intuitive Brexit vote, the institutional collapse in Kenya, the breakdown of the Opposition in Grenada and other micro-States, explanations of the political realities of Malta on the back of conventional voting behaviour analyses are becoming insufficient. Nothing is what it seems when the real decisions of the exercise of power are not taken in the offices of the institutions we elect but in secretive corporate boardrooms somewhere else.
It will take more than one Antonio di Pietro to get to the bottom of this. But like Di Pietro faced down his own insurmountable challenges, we have a duty not to give up.”
