It occured to me this evening that Mackinac Bridge in Michigan is where the famous Ford cards started. Who is the Ford agent in Malta?
Malta has woken up to find out that Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has been protecting criminals Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi in his office. Yorgen Fenech has asked for a presidential pardon to spill the beans on others complicit and we've now got MP Chris Cardona being questioned by the police.
Remember? Here's the full article to refresh your memory. Thanks once again to BugM.
To foreigners this must be reminiscent of the divide between Gaddafi supporters and rebels, or Syrian rebels and supporters of President Assad. In both cases they often hired third party mercenaries to bolster their ranks, but in Malta they don't really seem to need that. They've got their good all blinked bi-partisan culture to fuel this.
I'd love to hear your opinions on this, so feel free to also comment below. Do everyone a favour and share this far and wide. Get it past the echo chamber. Try, especially, to share it with any labour-voting friends of yours. If they're members of Laburisti Sal-Mewt, all the better.
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?
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.
