A British Parliamentary committee is warning the UK government is turning a blind eye to Russian dirty money flowing through the City’s financial structures serving the foreign policy aspirations of the Putin government. Read more about that report here, including the response of the UK government that seeks to assure Parliamentarians that the government is [...]

By

A Civil Court judge today turned down an application filed by lawyers for Alfred Degiorgio iċ-Ċiniż, one of the alleged hired assassins accused of killing Daphne Caruana Galizia, to stop FBI witnesses from testifying against them at least until the Court takes a final decision on preventing them from doing so altogether. In a lengthy [...]

The smell of Gasol

David Lindsey’s story yesterday on The Malta Independent on Sunday throws a little more light on the darkness of the exit of Gasol from the Electrogas consortium. Jacob Borg’s story today on The Times of Malta provides some more information about the agency of Konrad Mizzi as some form of mediator between any regulator with [...]

This was first posted on my Facebook page while my site was inaccessible. manueldelia.com continues to be unavailable for most of those trying to access it. This is due to a heavy DDoS attack on multiple fronts on the servers it uses. This is the second downtime this week and the longest in the year long [...]

The monk’s freedom

Published first earlier today on my Facebook page when this site was done. So Labour stalwarts Own Bonnici, Rosianne Cutajar, Kurt Farrugia and other sundry corporals in the zombie apocalypse army of Joseph Muscat are all over Facebook and Twitter taunting civil society activists to throw themselves in front of the bullets the Catholic Church [...]

As if they haven’t suffered enough

With the possible exception of a few loons no one feels anything but a depth of anger, sorrow and sympathy after the senseless assault on a traffic cop by a murderous lout. But some also cynically find in that near unanimity an opportunity to use the despicable incident as a pretext for their political advantage. [...]

Jeffrey’s OK

I am greatly relieved that it turned out that no one had actually placed a suspicious package outside Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando’s house. That would have been horrible. And how sad to see that he got such an awful fright. People should really be careful about where to dump their rubbish. I really do hope he’s [...]

There’s a coordinated campaign to get Facebook to ban this article as spam. Make sure you read it.

By
2018-05-17T21:55:21+02:00Thu, 17th May '18, 21:55|

The article is by Ranier Fsadni and was published in the Times of Malta this morning. It is, as is usual from this author, brilliant, clear and devastatingly cogent. People who shared the article on Facebook have had it struck down after Facebook received complaints the article is spam. We are fighting a battle merely [...]

Wounded policeman? Blame the activists.

By

A family of a policeman is going through unbearable suffering. He was doing his job directing traffic and a young man tried to kill him. I’d have to say allegedly tried to kill him of course, but his arrest and arraignment though not a prejudice to the presumption of his innocence are manifest and reasonable [...]

I had a conversation with the tech guys that help me out. The scale of the attack this website has been and is being subjected to is far from common. It compares to the worst acts of sabotage the local industry sees for example when someone wants to try to push an online casino off [...]

Verses sent in by Sean who is known to me: Numbers are allowing for this validation, A constant tallying of national falsification. Championing through daily rights for civil liberty, Whilst enabling the degradation of moral purity. Pumping stations will fuel this egoistic vanity, Trees mortgaged to satisfy our Dubai fantasy. A country where men can [...]

My speech at yesterday's vigil in Valletta: https://youtu.be/St2x3RowX-o Nixtieqkom tilbsu ż-żarbun tas-sorsi li kixfu dak li nafu fuq il-korruzzjoni f’pajjiżna. Meta l-whistleblowers tkellmu sentejn jew sena ilu ħadu riskji kbar. Xebgħu jaħbu għall-imbruljuni u stħaw flok sħabhom li baqgħu jagħlqu għajnejhom. Ħadu riskji kbar. Tilfu xogħolhom u għal xi żmien il-libertà tagħhom. Esponew ‘l uliedhom [...]

Does anyone think they’re funny?

Do people feel the way they sound when they go on Facebook to say the thug who ran over a policeman should have reversed over him to finish the job? It was not a universally held view by any means but what possesses apparently normal people to say such things in open view of everyone? [...]
