I won't bother you with the details both because this is a court case that has been dragging for 15 months to a point where the start of it is hardly relevant anymore and because there are so many important things going on this shouldn't take any of your thinking time. In brief, in August [...]

Why isn’t Joseph Muscat disappointed in his assistant?

2019-11-27T17:13:55+01:00Wed, 27th Nov '19, 17:13|

Heads of governments of democracies – even of most dictatorships – do not usually survive a scandal where their assistant is discovered to be part of a murder conspiracy. When Macbeth wanted to kill his biggest political threat he didn’t send his soldiers for fear common friends might have a problem with it. He hired [...]

They used to call it Freedom Square

2019-11-27T16:36:10+01:00Wed, 27th Nov '19, 16:29|

The square around Parliament has been blocked off for access. It has now become no man's land, a buffer of empty void between the people's voice and their parliamentarian's ears. They don't want to hear anymore. They just want to go on pretending it's not up to them to remove the prime minister, godfather of [...]

Be smart. Keep it peaceful.

The author is a former Malta ambassador to the European Union. How could the conspirators meet on the 4th floor before the election of 2013 and think they could get away with it? In spite of, or because, they relied upon foreign advisors who helped them set up a campaign which duped a greater part [...]

National Protest on Sunday 1 December 2019

2019-12-01T20:34:13+01:00Wed, 27th Nov '19, 13:08|

Now that the truth is emerging, we still need to fight for justice. For as long as Joseph Muscat is prime minister, he will remain an obstacle to justice. Joseph Muscat needs to resign or be removed by parliament. This is why Repubblika, #occupyjustice and call all people of good will whatever their political [...]

Absent friends

Joseph Muscat wants to stay on but he’s losing his entire edifice of power. All his cronies are in handcuffs or in hiding. He is becoming increasingly like the former boss of a criminal gang after all henchmen have been arrested. He is becoming like a sole king on a chess board crawling around the [...]

They held out for three years. They held out for six actually. But the game is up. The house of cards is falling. Joseph Muscat is still under the delusion that he can survive this. He can. But not if we have anything to say about that. Joseph Muscat is looking more and more like [...]

Keith Schembri down. Joseph Muscat must go.

2019-11-26T09:45:50+01:00Tue, 26th Nov '19, 09:45|

Joseph Muscat announced his chief of staff Keith Schembri resigned. Keith Schembri was the brains behind Joseph Muscat as a political product. But he was also believed to be the engine behind the corruption within the government. His name in the Panama Papers outed him and his efforts starting before the March 2013 election that [...]

Reports from within police headquarters on various media outlets say that Yorgen Fenech is throwing more in the way of the police to try to buy himself some relief from the prospect of a life sentence for murder. It remains to be seen what value his testimony has. Times of Malta’s Ivan Martin reports today [...]
