Keep your eyes on the prize people - Muscat is already trying to protect his buddies from being implicated in the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia. Why do you think he's doing that?
When all of this became apparent, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat insisted on standing by them. He didn't order resignations, he didn't fire them. We know this because he told us this, while running away from questions like a little bitch. Why not? Could it have anything to do with Egrant?

The Maltese should be rallying in their thousands, regardless of who is in attendance. The crowds should be so big that you have no idea who is there.
Assume that most inquiries are a cover-up under the present administration. On that basis, assume too that Egrant really did belong to Michelle Muscat. It hasn't yet been proven otherwise.
You wouldn't normally pay attention to the muttering, mumbling old drunk in the corner. But when he's a political appointee for MCAST it merits commentary. Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando obsessively and relentlessly targets an assassinated journalist. He's still smarting about the trouncing she gave him publicly for being an opportunistic, craven wee cretin.
