Read this interview in today's The Guardian. I can say no more.
Joseph Muscat is indulging in his classic newspeak. He is spinning this story like the rapist who pleads to the judge "but her skirt was very short". He told Christiane Amanpour on CNN, Daphne Caruana Galizia was "a harsh critic of (his)". He then repeated that line in Parliament. He is seeking absolution in the [...]
This exchange on Facebook between the so called honourable Silvio Schembri and Matthew Caruana Galizia happened on the eve of the last election. Matthew Caruana Galizia understood well what Silvio Schembri meant by "getting rid" of him. "How do you plan to do it," Matthew Caruana Galizia asked Silvio Schembri. "By shooting me?" Transcript of [...]
Here is the link to the article The Economist will be running on tomorrow's print edition following the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia. During his time here I met the author.
by Richard Theuma Whenever I open my web browser, the first thing I normally do is to guide the cursor towards the address bar and type in 'Running Commentary.' In spite of myself, I still do this even when I'm conscious that I'm doing it. It's the first stage of grief: denial. I can't say [...]
This is my intervention on NET TV on Monday a few hours after the shocking news Daphne Caruana Galizia was brutally executed. https://youtu.be/Qautkq0yevk https://youtu.be/YrfUGHUL7sA https://youtu.be/gh8xRtkpYsU https://youtu.be/SKh5H22aVEM
A day or two after the election result from last June I wrote an essay to try to make sense of an election result I could not understand. Daphne Caruana Galizia read it and linked it on her website. She said it was the analysis she intended to write but had not found the time [...]
by Lisa Darmanin Demajo As the horrific events of last Monday sink in, I am still suspended somewhere between disbelief and grief. Grieving for the mother, the wife, the sister, the daughter who was loved and lost. Brutally murdered and left to burn in front of her son. My heart breaks for them. Disbelief, that [...]
The foremost investigators in Italian journalism are in Malta or on their way. For them the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, so visually and morally reminiscent of the Strage di Capaci, is a story with layers and ramifications they have long suspected but feel they must now come here to prove. La Repubblica is reporting [...]
I struggle to think of Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando writing something poignant but from his small, diseased, petty and evil mind comes an unintended but no less significantly strong historical observation. He posted this in his celebration of Adrian Delia’s election to the leadership of the PN. That’s how small-minded he is. Looking at those acronyms [...]
Here's Evarist Bartolo on Facebook today: "Il-jum it-tajjeb. Wara l-qtil brutali ta' Daphne Caruana Galizia nhar it-Tnejn qed iqumu hafna mistoqsijiet serji u nkwetanti. Min ried jaghlqilha halqha f'daqqa wahda? Ghal tant snin ikkritikat bl-ahrax nies li qatt ma ghamlulha xejn. Xi tfacca gdid fl-ahhar xhur? Wahda mill-konsegwenzi ta' dan il-qtil kien it-tharbit tal-progress socjali [...]
Joseph Muscat had said in 2013 he'd make Malta the best in Europe. In 2017 he said he'd put Malta on the world stage. Oh but he has. The New York Times's editorial is on Daphne Caruana Galizia's assassination. It quotes Joseph Muscat's promise to ensure her killers are brought to justice. But it is [...]
This screen-grab of a rant by Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, another one of many raising a glass to the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, the one who held him to account for his disloyalty, corruption and pathological lying whilst Joseph Muscat rewarded him and confirmed him in public office he is completely unfit for. Jeffrey Pullicino [...]
An education Ministry civil servant wrote some encouraging words to parents of school children after the execution of Daphne Caruana Galizia. No harm in that and I would hate to diminish its effect if it does anyone any good. DQSE 02_2017 A Tragic Awakening But I know how these things work. Civil servants do not [...]
