What Dr Muscat is creating “is a movement not a party because a party has its principles… Everyone is being allowed in like sheep and goats as long as we win. I am sorry to see my party (going down this road). You cannot accept everyone, without any vetting. Those who are being pushed most are the turncoats. Others, like me, are sidelined and the turncoats are raised sky-high. Turncoats do not come because they love the party but because they hate the others. And they will come with a shopping list; a list of requirements. A turncoat will not cause trouble now but in two or three years’ time when the party gets to government. This is not the way to do things,” Dr Vassallo said.
- At least someone, somewhere is seeing it. The Umbrella Party laid bare. Who will be Muscat’s JPO?
On a personal level, I am Cyrus’s Confirmation Godfather and care a lot for Cyrus and his family. I am deeply upset by the way certain elements in the media are manipulating two unfortunate incidents of people I deeply care for with the sole aim of defaming the Prime Minister and the people around him. - Edgar Galea Curmi
The godfather? the private lives of saints unfold in public…. and constitutional rule of law turns topsy turvy.

No wonder Sliema did so bad last year. This year Valletta will win the league again. Hail Hail.

On the death of Eritrean hero Ashih Haile, a smart MaltaToday reader writes in:
“If he were already dead why was he taken to hospital by helicopter?”

Minister Gatt has taken note of the hunger strike announced by Emmanuel Cini. He has asked Arriva to speak to the hunger striker and try to ensure that his ends are met. We know this from a report in the Times in which Gatt’s actions were transmitted to the Times by a spokesman for Dr Gatt.
Minister Gatt did not speak directly to the press. He did not speak to Emmanuel Cini either. If the striker is even half serious you’d expect a bit more commitment from Gatt. Instead of his usual gutsy dismissive statement we get his metatron - a spokesman for Dr Gatt. Which makes you wonder what happened to the other Emmanuel, the one who was only too happy to have his name linked to anything Arriva before the fiasco began.
You know which Emmanuel we are talking about. The one who very evidently does not know what a hunger strike means.
“Just three days after filing a judicial protest objecting to “unreasonable” bus routes, lawyer Joe Brincat has received more than 60 e-mails from disgruntled commuters complaining about unnecessarily lengthy journeys.”
20 e-mails per day and 1 hunger strike? I’m sure I’d collect more complaints about Bondiplus, Xarabank and Affari Taghna if I took the same initiative (though not too sure if anything is worth hunger-striking about).
