I am angry. No scratch that. I am beyond angry. I am livid. I am livid and mad at what is happening to my country.

I am angry at the forces in my country that have created a society that only works for the favoured few. A culture with an agenda of greed, and the voices of hate and division that created apostles of hate against Daphne Caruana Galizia.

Hate which resulted in her being callously executed for exposing the filth and corruption that Joseph Muscat and Keith Schembri, aided and abetted by Robert Abela and the rest of the current and former Labour members of parliament have led us into.

I am aghast at the vitriol expressed by labour trolls against Daphne in the gutter press and on social media, even now that she has been authoritatively and formally declared by a panel of three judges to be a victim of the state’s failure to protect her.

Daphne was a woman, a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a mother. She was a human being who was cold-heartedly murdered by the mafia and big business, aided and abetted by the elected representatives of the people who were in duty bound to protect her.

Instead of protecting her, they allowed and encouraged a culture of impunity to form and grow like a malevolent virus. Glenn Bedingfield and the others who helped to demonise her, have a lot to answer for.

Most politicians are narcissists. Narcissists are arrogant, self-important, (that pompous git Edward Zammit Lewis springs to mind), see themselves as special, require excessive admiration (proset ministru), have a sense of entitlement, and are exploitative.

They tend to believe that they are right and, even when they are not, they actually believe that they are too clever to be caught or suffer the consequences. In other words, they believe their own bullshit. This leads them to believe that they can do whatever they want. A sense of impunity which gives them a licence to rape and kill.

Politicians know their followers will believe them, even in the face of irrefutable evidence to the contrary. Politicians and their supporters live in an echo chamber in which everyone watches the same TV news channel, listens to the same radio programs, reads the same newspapers and websites, and socialises with like-minded people.

People don’t want to hear the truth. Truth hurts and no one wants to hear things that threaten their existence, their beliefs, or anything that will make them uncomfortable. Politicians tell people what makes the people feel comfortable, and the Labour Party are the masters of spin.

Following the release of the public enquiry, Robert Abela “offered an apology” to Daphne’s family, on behalf of the state. But he didn’t apologise. “Talab apoloġija”, which is not the same as “Għamel apoloġija”.

“Talab apoloġija” translates to “asked for an apology” and in my book at least that is not an apology. It’s a play on words and it makes me very, very angry.
