GUEST POST: Why people are angry

2019-11-21T13:21:50+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 13:21|

Sent in by someone I know. Some are incredulously asking why people are getting angry now that a major step has been taken towards the identification of the masterminds of the Daphne Caruana Galizia assassination. Well, if you are not angry at what is happening around us, it is only because you have not been [...]

PROTEST: Friday 22 November, 18:30

2019-11-23T09:25:06+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 13:00|

Repubblika, #occupyjustice and reiterate their protest and will be gathering in front of the Auberge de Castille on Friday 22 November at 18:30 to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Joseph Muscat has a clear political responsibility. If he had dismissed Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi when the Panama Papers confirmed Daphne Caruana [...]

The Elephant Man

2019-11-21T12:48:49+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 12:48|

Look at this unbelievable statement by the Speaker of Malta’s Parliament Anġlu Farrugia. I wasn’t among the protesters in front of Parliament yesterday evening. But I watched it on Facebook and some of those who were there are my friends. Many others I do not know. Anġlu Farrugia thinks it’s criminal to protest in front [...]

Journalism should not be a dangerous business

2019-11-21T12:20:23+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 12:20|

It’s obviously small of me to talk about danger when Daphne Caruana Galizia was blown up in her car. So I assure you I keep things in perspective and I don’t want to make too much of a fuss. But today the court had to issue a second protection order ordering someone to stay away [...]

It takes three to tango

2019-11-21T11:52:42+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 11:52|

It is chilling to speak of the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia as an opportunity. There’s nothing good in murder. There’s no heroic sacrifice here. She was a hero and this was a great sacrifice. But there’s nothing here that should have made Daphne’s death and her family’s loss necessary to anyone. Yet, here we [...]

Pilatus. Sata. Now BoV.

2019-11-21T10:39:19+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 10:39|

Yesterday was easily the biggest news day of the year which is why this Reuters report risks going over people’s head. It should not, because the threat of a meltdown at Malta’s largest bank is a threat to the very meltdown to Malta’s economy. And it won’t be the Gasans and the Apap Bolognas and [...]

LOOKING BACK: John Vassallo on the Electrogas deal

2019-11-21T09:55:02+01:00Thu, 21st Nov '19, 09:55|

The following article was first published on The Times of Malta by John Vassallo last December. He analysed just how rotten the Electrogas deal was. Now we are waiting for a criminal trial that may show the deal was, for some, worth killing for. The link to the original article as published is here. It's worth [...]

Can you hear the people sing?

2019-11-20T22:47:14+01:00Wed, 20th Nov '19, 22:47|

We met in front of the prime minister’s office this evening and we made a very simple request. We asked not to be governed by the corrupt. We then walked to the court of justice at the Daphne protest memorial and we paid our respects to the journalist who suffered the greatest injustice of us [...]

Look how simple it is

If Joseph Muscat hadn’t protected Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi in 2016 my mother would still be alive. He has blood on his hands. — Andrew Caruana Galizia (@acaruanagalizia) November 20, 2019 Join us. 6pm today. Castille. Let them know what you think.

Does Joseph Muscat want our thanks?

2019-11-20T12:33:50+01:00Wed, 20th Nov '19, 12:33|

I have been fielding many questions from international journalists this morning about what’s going on in Malta. One of them asked me a question that stumped me. Why is the prime minister briefing the press on a police investigation? Why doesn’t the police do it? For us so close to this story the question slips [...]

Civil society is calling on you to protest today

2019-11-20T22:04:17+01:00Wed, 20th Nov '19, 11:04|

JOSEPH MUSCAT MUST RESIGN OR PARLIAMENT MUST FIRE HIM Repubblika, #occupyjustice and are calling you to join them. If you are a member of civil society, if you feel you’ve been lied to time and time again, if you feel that those who’s duty it is to safeguard our country and institutions have betrayed the country, then you [...]

Far too keen on where and how and not so hot on why.

2019-11-19T15:35:32+01:00Tue, 19th Nov '19, 15:35|

The name Melvin Theuma was outed by Malta Today earlier today as the alleged middleman in the conspiracy that assassinated Daphne Caruana Galizia. As Caroline Muscat wrote a few hours later, the name has been in the awareness of several journalists for many weeks. Many of us were aware that for months one of the [...]
