From my article in The Sunday Times:

“As accusations of treachery are handed out in fury, the party leader himself shows unhelpful ambivalence when, for example, the government makes a fresh attempt to promote Consuelo Scerri Herrera and reward her with a judgeship, showing remarkable contempt for the institutions such as the reviewing committee that they themselves set up.

Her continued presence on the bench is a disservice to justice, and any promotion would be as far from the interests of justice as anything could possibly be. But Delia, who shares a boyfriend with Consuelo Scerri Herrera, remains virtually silent.

For all those PN fans who supported Delia for all the wrong reasons, they’re left with another lesson on his character: ‘Jaqdi n-nies tagħhom’.”
