GUEST POST: This is not a time for national unity

2019-12-19T11:08:36+01:00Thu, 19th Dec '19, 11:08|

This is a time for people to walk the talk and show us where they stand. The last month has been filled with shocking revelations clearly implicating that Joseph Muscat's Chief of Staff and most trusted advisor, Keith Schembri was fully aware and directly involved in the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. That's right, [...]

We are the Knights Who Say ‘No’

2019-12-18T17:00:53+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 16:58|

MEPs were asked today to vote on whether Joseph Muscat should fuck off pronto or enjoy his last Christmas in Castille. Almost all of them said he should fuck off pronto. The list is so long it's boring. So let's look at the list of the people who said they're fine with Joseph Muscat staying [...]

STAR COMMENT: Egrant on the Titanic

2019-12-18T14:14:32+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 14:14|

Posted by Corinne Vella under the 6th post this morning on the publication of the Egrant inquiry. Malta's failure to investigate the Panama Papers - as other countries with poorer democratic credentials than ours have done - is directly linked to Daphne's assassination. Egrant Inc. is a detail in a much wider web of intrigue, [...]

He said we’d be the best in Europe

2019-12-18T13:35:22+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 13:26|

581 MEPs voted in favour of a resolution urging the European Commission to immediately "start a dialogue" with Malta to fix its disregard for the rule of law. They are clearly not impressed by Owen Bonnici and his broom. Only 26 MEPs voted against the motion most of them right-wing nationalists for whom no European [...]

Egrant (5) This country does not understand what whistle-blowers are for

2019-12-18T11:25:58+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 11:25|

In recommending Maria Efimova is investigated for calumny and perjury after her testimony proved providential for the state to understand the fraud that Pilatus Bank was, the inquiry clearly showed it never understood what a whistle-blower is. Unlike every other witness with the exception of Jonathan Ferris that is quoted in the inquiry, Maria Efimova [...]

Egrant (3) The Egrant inquiry did not check all leads

2019-12-18T11:20:47+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 11:20|

I know of at least one: evidence that Michelle Buttigieg, Michelle Muscat’s business partner in the fake business branded Buttardi, settled in one fell swoop a mortgage for an apartment in Manhattan, New York days after she was alleged to have received a portion of a bung paid to Michelle Muscat by the daughter of [...]

Egrant (2) Joseph Muscat is a lying bastard and has no qualms about exploiting official secrecy for his personal ends

2019-12-18T11:18:18+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 11:18|

Joseph Muscat spent the last eighteen months pretending to lose his cool because Simon Busuttil forged documents to frame him for a crime. The day an extract of the report was published last year he made an act of being unable to hold back his emotions and burst into tears in a press conference. For [...]

Granting Egrant (0)

2019-12-18T11:12:53+01:00Wed, 18th Dec '19, 11:12|

Look, I have not yet read the whole Egrant report. 1,501 pages is rather a lot to read and it is not exactly stuff that keeps you at the edge of your seat. There’s plenty of analysis that still needs to be made. Also, Godfrey Leone Ganado will be, in good time, providing a series [...]

GUEST POST: Reconciliation and Confrontation

2019-12-17T12:09:34+01:00Tue, 17th Dec '19, 12:09|

The socio-economic ramifications and the political theatre of the absurd discourse on these islands during these last years, programmed in minute detail years before same hit the stage, were nothing else but a treacherous act against the State. An act that had as its source the same party in government. Irrespective of the dark backgrounds [...]

Malta’s shame

2019-12-17T11:58:10+01:00Tue, 17th Dec '19, 11:58|

One after the other MEPs stood to restate some very clear and stark facts. A journalist has been killed. She investigated corruption on which no action has yet been taken. There is justified suspicion that the prime minister’s office was involved in the cover-up of the murder, and therefore is suspected of being involved in [...]
