European Parliament starting Malta debate now

Perhaps someone should tell them the court marshal could not find Keith Schembri so he can appear as a witness this morning. Perhaps they could have got Neville Gafa to find him for them. Or if not to actually see Keith Schembri, why was Neville Gafa going to Santa Maria Estate in his office car [...]

Greed is an entrance ticket for the mafia

There are many reasons to watch Rai’s film from last Sunday. It can perhaps explain why the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia was never going to be a local Maltese story and that’s not just because this is the story of the killing of a journalist and journalists everywhere are bound to be interested in [...]

Matter of trust

Perhaps it’s still early to work out what the full impact will be of the court’s decision today to order the attorney general to hand over a full copy of the Egrant report to Leader of Opposition Adrian Delia. In any case Adrian Delia still doesn’t have the report. Incredibly the AG is trying to [...]

GUEST POST: How to walk into a brick wall

2019-12-16T11:29:06+01:00Mon, 16th Dec '19, 11:29|

When you find a disgraced Joseph Muscat and his wife on television carrying on as if they were the only victims of some recent act of God working in tandem with a hostile media, it's then that you know that these are strange times. They sit before the Super One cameras talking in riddles and [...]

We asked for the President’s protection

GUEST POST: I was in transit, my deers.

An exclusive glance at Michelle Muscat’s soon to be published “My Journal, by Maxalle”, as leaked (not) to Andrew Borg-Cardona. For reasons that are not immediately clear, dates have been left out of the leaked draft. It is surmised that it may become necessary to mess with the time-line in order to fit whatever narrative [...]

This is not the Labour Party. This is the Mafia.

Look at Neville Gafà bashing Evarist Bartolo for not singing with the chorus of praise for Joseph Muscat's mafia state. This post is not an episode of partisan glee seeing two Laburisti quarrel. I do not play into the myth of 'unity' and 'division' in political parties. I disapprove of cultism which necessarily means I [...]

So we hate paralympians now

2019-12-16T09:31:50+01:00Mon, 16th Dec '19, 09:31|

My friends and I are receiving all sorts of messages and threats, some privately and some publicly now. We're being invited to cut our veins. And they don't even ask nicely. You can switch your mind off to things people say on Facebook for some time. It becomes a bit harder when people shout at [...]

RaiUno Special tonight on Mafia in Malta and Europe

2019-12-16T09:56:15+01:00Sun, 15th Dec '19, 12:14|

Rai Uno has announced it will be broadcasting a special documentary on the infiltration of organised crime in Malta and Europe tonight at 23:30. Their announcement describes the situation in Europe as a 'mafia emergency'. Rotterdam harbour receives the bulk of cocaine shopped from South America. Amsterdam is a hideout for Italian fugitives of the [...]

Photo: Paul Borg Olivier Joseph Muscat does not want us to be wondering why Keith Schembri can pass secret intelligence to wanted murderers and get away with it. He does not want us to ask why Konrad Mizzi, forced to resign over the Panama/17 Black scandal, has not yet been questioned by the [...]

No permit is needed

2019-12-14T16:10:42+01:00Sat, 14th Dec '19, 15:09|

The police issued a notice saying the the people gathered in Valletta marking the 45th anniversary of Malta becoming a Republic were not covered by a police permit. As a person who grew up in Valletta, Republic Street was alway lined with barriers on Republic Day (and other events of national importance) to allow the [...]

Light a candle, Mr President

Photo: Robert Agius President George Vella made a remarkable speech today. It was free of the sort of obtuse obliviousness that Ministers in his government appear to insist on with the occasional pause to pity themselves about how they have been betrayed and how they aren't happy Daphne was killed even though she [...]
