I published a story this morning that annoyed Adrian Delia. He responded by calling me a liar. I published a post that showed I wasn’t lying. In the meantime, Times of Malta worked on the story separately and substantially confirmed my reporting including the fact that Joseph Muscat had tipped Adrian Delia as lawyer for [...]

By order of the king

Adrian Delia read my piece of this morning. In response, such as it was, he wrote on his Facebook calling me a liar and other things. Later in the day, presumably because someone might have explained to him how I found out that Joseph Muscat had picked him to be the lawyer for the premier [...]

Frank Psaila is collecting iced buns like a Laburist tal-qalba. Kristy Debono now works for the agencies it was her job to shadow as an MP up to just a few months ago. Adrian Delia is now Joseph Muscat’s lawyer as the former prime minister, aided by the former leader of his former opposition, takes [...]

Joseph Muscat has picked Adrian Delia as one of two lawyers to negotiate with the football association on behalf of premier league clubs. Adrian Delia will be working alongside Jean Farrugia, one half of DF Advocates a firm which in the past has denied having close links to former OPM chief of staff Keith Schembri. [...]

From my article in Sunday's Times: "I did a quick survey of newspapers and found that the last time the prime minister was anywhere in the presence of the media actually saying something was 63 days ago... "This is not an extended holi­day. Abela has gone underground." Read the full article here.

Joseph Muscat complained the institutions are acting against his cronies under pressure from “the usual people”. By that he means the police are only prosecuting Frederick Azzopardi to make it look like they’re doing something and get people calling for justice off their back. But they don’t really mean to have Frederick Azzopardi convicted. There’s [...]

The general and his four cats

Erba’ qtates they called the thousands in the streets that brought Joseph Muscat down in 2019. You’d have to wonder what they’d call the Manwel Cuschieri fan boys (and some girls) who showed up to cheer Frederick Azzopardi this morning when Manwel Cuschieri helpfully pointed him out so they could distinguish him from all the [...]

Joseph’s Army of Wrath. Where is it?

Joseph Muscat promised thousands screaming in indignation. He threatened to flood the streets of Valletta with a mass of furious anger flowing like hot lava. How dare anyone prosecute an official he had handpicked for breaking the law and tarmacking a valley? Joseph Muscat's promise fizzled into nothing. In place of a massive [...]

Joseph’s guns (6): The corrupter corrupts

Read this report of a comment by Joseph Muscat in May 2018. He was facing calls to have a public independent inquiry opened to look into the killing of Daphne Caruana Galizia. He was rejecting the calls saying an inquiry would undermine the criminal investigations and eventual prosecutions. He was facing protests against his protection [...]

Joseph’s guns (5): The vale of destruction

Just so it’s clear where this started. Frederick Azzopardi is being prosecuted for ignoring legitimate orders from the environment protection agency to stop building a road in Siġġiewi's Wied Qirda. The road was being built to replace an illegal passage way to a house in the valley. To make way for the new road, protected [...]

In the 7 years he was prime minister Joseph Muscat never showed up at a marċ ta’ San Gejtanu. He’s now a people’s man again because he needs those crowds at his back to scare public officials from doing their duty and prosecute him and his cronies. He showed up at San Gejtanu yesterday and [...]

Joseph’s guns (3): The state outside the state

By
2022-08-08T06:46:28+02:00Mon, 8th Aug '22, 06:46|

Joseph Muscat is no longer prime minister. He no longer has access to the basic hire and fire power over public officials that he had when he was in office. When he was prime minister he headed a criminal organisation that captured the institutions of the state to pursue its profiteering program. That program and [...]

Joseph’s guns (2): “The Usual People”

By
2022-08-08T06:40:04+02:00Mon, 8th Aug '22, 06:40|

Joseph Muscat’s crony, mouthpiece, 1984 propagandist, and lynch-mobster Emmanuel Cuschieri put a face to his boss’s reference to “the usual people” under whose pressure institutions act. He put up a picture of Repubblika’s Robert Aquilina as a target of hate, a blood red cape waved in front of the mob they are whipping up to [...]
