The Washington Post. Stop right there for a minute. Not In-Nazzjon. Not the Times of Malta. Not even Daphne Caruana Galizia. The Washington H Post says Malta is writing the 21st century book on how democracies fail. Of course by Malta they mean its government. And by its government they mean Joseph Muscat. Today he [...]

The plumbers at FIAU

By

The press rushed down to the FIAU building last night after word spread IT engineers have been called in on a Friday night to change the plumbing. The agency later explained they were upgrading servers to improve capacity while sources from within reported management paranoia the agency was being hacked and needed to improve its [...]

How many propagandists do you need to design a stamp?

By
2018-04-21T05:51:00+02:00Sat, 21st Apr '18, 05:51|

Postage stamps: remember them? There's still a statutory body, a legacy of a bygone era, that decides on what pictures go on postage stamps. And while it's there, there's still the opportunity to dish out some iced buns. At least three Super 1 propagandists -- Clint Bajda, Clifford Galea, Owen Galea -- have now been [...]

Joseph Muscat spent the anniversary from when Daphne Caruana Galizia broke the news Pilatus Bank held evidence a Panama company in his wife's name received a cool million in its Dubai account from Azerbaijan's dictator's family cavorting with Christian Kaelin of Henley and Partners. This is the welcome he got. https://youtu.be/3BeDmlbb-VE Joseph Muscat and his [...]

In case you missed this comment under another post by Godfrey Leone Ganado: I must also make reference to a highly questionable transaction disclosed in the audited accounts of Keith Schembri's Kasco Holdings Limited for the financial year ended 31 December 2016. An amount of Euro 2,609,453 is showing as a third party loan receivable, [...]

Joseph Calleja: ‘I am a professional’

No one can take your voice away and long may it sing and flood the great music halls of the world. But your decency you have given away of your own accord. It is not that you sang at an event that is so representative of the rot that has shamed our country across the [...]

Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri: corruption and money laundering. An update on the facts.

2018-04-20T19:36:23+02:00Fri, 20th Apr '18, 17:29|

Simon Busuttil and David Casa with their lawyer Jason Azzopardi again walked into a court-room today to do the job that constitutionally belongs to the police. They revealed no secrets and announced no new discoveries. They documented what has already been published and organised it nice and neatly in a court application that exposes the [...]

Jason Azzopardi: On the hidden circles of power

By

Jason Azzopardi in Parliament unlike you're used to seeing him. There is one painful question above all else. La Repubblica asked it. And many others are asking. If the security services were monitoring the chief assassin for months before the killing, why did they not stop him? How did the accused assassins know ahead of [...]

The impunity must end

By

The image of a policeman walking over banners showing Chris Cardona's mobile number sums it up eloquently enough. France 2 yesterday showed a filmed eyewitness account of someone saying they saw Chris Cardona speak with one of the accused assassins who killed Daphne Caruana Galizia at the time of her death. If the world cannot [...]

Looking for the way out

The significance of this Facebook post by Mark Camilleri should not be underestimated. It should not be overestimated either. It is not the lonely wail of a disposable switcher whom the Labour Party can replace by recruiting a dozen former PN voters persuading them to switch sides by some public sector job or planning permit. [...]

There is something of the surreal again about the current goings on in Malta. More facts are emerging every day that complete the picture that Daphne Caruana Galizia had started drawing. Sueddeutsche Zeitung revealed transactions into 17 Black that confirm what many have believed for some time: that Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri worked on setting [...]

At last Alfred Sant’s call has been heard. Labour is summoning the crowds to gather in Valletta in large numbers and intimidate Peter, Matthew, Andrew and Paul Caruana Galizia for the vicious crime of having their mother burnt and torn to shreds. They'll say this on line poster is not official Labour communication. They're lying. [...]

It has now been 12 hours since The Daphne Project has launched. Leading news organisations of the world have concentrated on Malta explaining to the world a complex story that is about the murder of a woman and the capture of a country. The world has waited 6 months for Malta’s authorities to appear to [...]

Photos by Jon Borg: This is my speech from yesterday: https://youtu.be/uYZjxo4o8_8 Sena ilu kont qed niċċekkja x’hemm ġdid fuq il-blog ta’ Daphne kull ftit minuti. F’ħin minnhom wieġbet mistoqsija b’risposta li kien ilna nobsru. Qalet li l-Egrant kienet ta’ Michelle Muscat u l-provi qegħdin Pilatus Bank. Fit-8 ta’ fil-għaxija kont qed nara lill-prim ministru.

When Joseph Muscat acquired a fast lane permit in complete defiance of the procedure set at law he wasn’t just giving himself VIP treatment and bragging to his wife that though he cannot change a light bulb to save his life he was a good catch after all. He was reminding everyone how things work. [...]
