You really must watch Jeremy Paxman’s interview with Conrad Black, for the BBC, in the link below.

Why don’t you paste the links directly into your posts? I often miss them or google something you referenced only to find the link when it’s too late, and I’m sure there are others like me.
Forget that Hollinger stuff.
Conrad Black was spanked by the powers that be for his greed on the stock market for selling short in a large way just prior to the 9/11 event.
This Queen’s black knight almost gave the game plan away and had to pay the price.
Well, Conrad Black should have set up his business in Italy. I mean one can get away with anything….except, on earthquake predictions….
This is THE classic Paxo
“One thing is sure, that the tobacco industry is the main winner with the fall of Dalli. I hope that this will not lead to precisely what big tobacco wants, the further blocking and delaying of a strong tobacco product directive.
Irish MEP Nessa Childers
As quoted by parliament.com
As I had commented earlier, “Who is to gain with John Dalli’s resignation?”
An Irish MEP?
Even if this was an entrapment, Dalli put himself in a very vulnerable position with his ‘bazuzli’. And that is a matter for resignation for an EU Commissioner.
The mind boggles, Such a similarity between the two. I had to view that video twice and I still cannot believe it’s real.
Black is in deep denial but at least he’s out of jail now.
Dalli’s refutation of facts denies him the ability to grasp the gravity of the situation and where it may lead to.
What’s more he defends Silvio Zammit and closes ranks with him when he should have never interacted with him in the first place.
Does Zammit now require protection lest he spills the beans? This is not a happy situation.
No surprise we have a couple over here.
Quite an illustrious family, her father and grandfather staunch sympathisers and leaders of the IRA respectively.
Arrogance and lack of insight are their common traits not to mention denial.
This guy continues to embarrass us Canadians. A true crook
Could it be that one of Dalli’s ‘middlemen’ has contacted Black for some pointers on denials?
And he has no shame. He wants his Canadian citizenship back after he renounced it.
He’s just another victim of the Evil Click.
So will you stop all this bourgeois priggishness?
Daphne read this and stop being so biased… you make me puke
obviously you wont publish this comment…
I trust you do not expect people to agree with you on the basis of your vomiting.
The delay, of a few weeks, in the review of decade-old legislation is regrettable (though Dalli apparently did not give a flying fu*!< at a rolling donut thereon… naturally until he was outed) but it's worth incurring if it allows the EU Commission to remove any suspicion of sleaze and corruption. Furthermore, apparently the relative draft is untouched; Dalli's removal ensures that it will not be damaged by his unethical behaviour.
If only we had Maltese journalists with balls like this one.
[Daphne - Jeremy Paxman is unique even in Britain, Marinto.]
I live in the UK, Jeremy Paxman and John Humphreys are the best journalists who know how to grill politicians.
Few politicians dare to be interviewed by Jeremy Paxman.
Malta can never have a Jeremy Paxman.
And that for many reasons including anthropological, geographical, political, religious and so on and so forth.
That is no excuse for not having far better journalists than we actually have.
Our ‘decent’ journalists can be counted on the fingers of a partially amputated hand.
Paxman is also an excellent author and one of his books I like is “The English”.
If you enjoyed reading ‘The English’, I suggest you read:
It is an excellent book if you would like to discover the odd characteristics of the English.
At least Black is more articulate.
Wow! What an interview.
Conrad Black is on a slightly different stratospheric level than Dalli, however they are similar in one thing.
Both guilty as sin.
What can I say?
Conrad Black certainly has some of the Dalli streak in him and in his misdemeanours.
However he is such an articulate, polished and suave individual that any further comparisons can only be odious.
How predictable. Xi dwejjaq, m’hemmx li nehilsu minnhom darba ghal dejjem. Rega qam is-serduq.
Pretty obvious that Dalli’s stealing the limelight from Franco Debono.
This was the most interesting edition of L-Orizzont ever published!!!
When was that published in L-Orizzont?
If Dom Mintoff was still live and kicking, he would have already invited Barroso for a debate on television. Why wouldn’t Dalli, Grima and Privitera do the same? The last two do have the mannerisms and language of their beloved perit.
We’re missing Eddy Privitera in this thread…
Honestly, if Mr Privitera had to be a US citizen he would make them consider repealing the First Amendment to the US Constitution (right of free press etc) and enforce the Second Amendment (right to bear arms).
I know that to be so gullible to believe all the shit Joseph Muscat and Co mete out on a daily basis is already saying something, but this guy really is empirical evidence that some people are on the lowest ebb of Darwin’s theory.
This song kept playinging in my mind.
“Dalli um-pa” and it had to be the Kessler twins. Some distant relatives of Giovanni, the evil OLAF prosecutor?
I can see that the plot is becoming curiousor and curiousor and now we have proof enough that the web of the evil click has been working against our Johnny since 1961.
Black vs. Paxman and Boulton
