From my article in The Sunday Times yesterday:

“Daphne Caruana Galizia summarised it in one of her more brilliant and memorable analyses published on July 3, 2015: ‘There is corruption everywhere in the world, literally everywhere, and at every level. The difference is that in Malta people have a corrupt attitude towards corruption. They blank it. They tolerate it.’ Not only does Grixti’s post show that the doctor is corrupt as he implicitly admits that he organised industrial scale benefit fraud by failing to even attempt to deny his involvement. It also shows that Grixti is enabled by his Facebook followers’ corrupt attitude to corruption. It is corrupt to feel any sympathy with Grixti’s claim that being made to face consequences for corruption is unfair and that the proper conduct of the state is to treat its citizens in a way that allows politicians to get away with corruption.”
