Party media needs to go. It's the most bizarre set up in a professed democracy in the European Union. It has long been used to maintain the bipartisan (and almost sectarian) divide in Malta, and it is toxic.
I cannot be at the protest tonight because I don't live in Malta. But I shall be there in spirit, as I am every 16th of every month when people gather to protest corruption which saw a journalist assassinated. I'll be listening to this music as I think of you. In you Malta has hope. …
It's a shame that Moviment Graffitti are complicit in attempting to paint this as a partisan protest (thereby aiding and abetting the Labour party narrative) by pointedly deciding not to attend. But, and make no mistake about this, that is indeed what they are doing.
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.

The corruption diet
These eager fools troll social media trying to enjoin everyone to their ignorance, proselytising. They are slaves happy for their chains and they want to chain you up too. It's like a mass Stockholm syndrome.
If you care about the future of your country, your people, your children and grandchildren: you must protest. It's not just Keith Schembri who should resign. Konrad Mizzi and Joseph Muscat should have hung up their dancing shoes and bowed out ages ago too. Chris Cardona and Edward Scicluna too. As Repubblika put it:
This has to be the most impotent, lifeless, opposition in Maltese history.
