GLORY, GLORY, ALLELLUIAH…

Published: August 20, 2012 at 10:22pm

May you rot in hell, you couple of heinous bastards.

I’m sticking this to the front page for a while so that you can scroll through the comments beneath. Twenty-five years of what we thought was normality, and then we find that the younger Labour generation are still rancid Mintoffjani, just as awful as their fathers and grandfathers who burned down The Times, sacked Eddie Fenech Adami’s home, created general mayhem and, above all, voted Labour in 1981, 1987 and 1992, when it was a clear demonstration of cracked thinking to do so (it still is, but those years were the absolute worst).

What is it going to take – another 10 generations?

….but quite frankly, the saints will probably go marching OUT once he walks in.

How very considerate of Mr Mintoff to make this one of my best birthdays ever.

Now excuse me while I rush out to celebrate.

I don’t speak ill of the dead and ordinarily I would consider any such behaviour to be totally crass, but in this case I have to make an exception.

This is the man without whom my life and the lives of those around me would have been completely different. Malta would have been completely different. It would have been so much better.

Dom Mintoff was appalling and hateful, an absolute sociopath, Malta’s Muammar Gaddafi, and let’s not be hypocritical and pretend otherwise just because he’s finally popped his worn-out, miserable clogs.

He should count himself lucky he died in his bed and not like his godawful friend across the water, which is what he truly deserved.

Let’s leave the hypocrisy and the panegyrics and the false rewriting of history to the Mintoffjani and the mealy-mouthed.

Of course, this probably means that his weasel of a daughter will be elected on a rush of sympathy and misplaced sentiment. But we’ll worry about that later.

      • H.P. Baxxter says:

        Jien m’ghandix pedigree ghax jien working class iktar minnek, u gej minn familja hamalla.

        Int u kwazi Malta kollha m’intomx kapaci tiddistingwu bejn il-persuna privata u l-figura pubblika.

        Ic-champagne kellu toghma qarsa lbieragh, u taf ghaliex? Ghax irrealizzajt li l-mewt tal-persuna privata mhix se twassal biex tizzarma l-legacy pubblika.

        Anzi, bil-logika mnejka tal-Maltin, il-mejjet issirlu agiografija, kien min kien u ghamel x’ghamel. Jigi trasfigurat f’qaddis intokkabbli.

        Ix-xorb ta’ champagne b’celebrazzjoni, bhaz-zfin ta’ victory jig fuq il-qabar, huwa att kontra l-legacy ta’ Mintoff.

        Imma ma nippretendix li int u d-99% l-ohra tifhmuha din. Ghalik, dan huwa biss “man kneeling down LOL heheh LOLZ”:

        Ghalik dan huwa distruzzjoni ta’ monument ghal ragel mejjet, x’gharukaza:

        Diga` qed nara eluf ta’ kummenti, hafna minnhom minn politici Nazzjonalisti, ghaddejjin bl-idjozija Maltija, li “whatever he did, good or bad, we must respect the memory of a dead person.” What utter tosh.

        This is not about a person. It’s about a public figure.

        It’s about a legacy. Unless that legacy is dismantled, brick by brick, the man’s death changes nothing.

        Imma ma nistennix li int se tifhem x’qed nghidlek, jew li se tinbidel xi haga. Ghalhekk id-Dom Perignon kellu toghma qarsa.

        @ Daphne I am not yet sure what runs through your disturbed mind/head. Whether you have any conscience, love, respect, any sort of human feeling towards anybody or anything! Sometimes I wonder whether you have received any yourself throughout your life!
        I simply see you as a total psychopath who is struggling to show the world the hatered you have for the ones around you simply because you have not yet fullfilled your dreams or achieved what you have long waited for.
        I would be ashamaed of myself, in these days, in such a civilised community, to write such aricles. Having said that I am not ashamed to openly express my opinion agianst you (or anyone who supports you)! I hope that sometime you realise that the world will definetley be a better place, certainly not through the passing away of a political leader (whoever he may be)! It will be a better place if people like you never existed or were not given the right to utter any word, betterso write down whatever goes through their sick minds!
        Hope God has mercy on your soul when the day comes – unlike most people who read your blogs!
        And finally, may Dom Mintoff rest in peace – at the end of the day, good or bad, he was a human being like the rest of us and throughout his life he struggled to give the working class a better life! So sorry that, unfrotunately, I can see no struggle from your side for anyone in Malta to get a better chance of life!
        Joseph – EX PN supporter.

        well said Mintoff died with dignity and respect she will die with nothing shamefull and discusting

        [Daphne – ‘Mintoff died with dignity.’ Love it.]

        H.P. Baxter, yesterday was the death of the person. The death of the public figure was in 1998, when he retired from politics.

      • Frankie says:

        @H.P Baxter – Yes, unfortunately, Mintoff’s legacy has been being dismantled for the past 25 years by this present government, we have been seeing the social services he introduced perishing one by one, gone are the days when the citizen gets a house from the government with a really cheap price, and gets a subsidized loan as well, gone are the rights of the workers, pension is on the brink as well, and God knows what’s next. I remember the times before Mintoff came into power when the workers had no minimum wage, no leave, no 40 hour week, no bonuses, no sick leave, no pension, I still remember the time before Mintoff, when wage increase used to be given by percentage, does who earn a lot get a big increase and those who worked for pennies got next to nothing, women had to work with a wage far less than men (because according to the P.N of those days, women were only meant to stay in the kitchen) they had no right to vote, beggars on the streets, isn’t this all the legacy of this great man? And then people with sorry arses like you and this horrible bitch refer to this greatest statesman Malta has ever seen like this? Shame on you. At least you had the decency to admit that you’ve got no pedigree and that you are coming from a “hamalla” family!

      • marc says:

        lise, you are talking like this because you can. If you spoke like this under a Labour regime (about Labour) no one will ever hear from you again.

        @ Joseph.

        “Having said that I am not ashamed to openly express my opinion agianst you (or anyone who supports you)!”

        Joseph, are you sure you are not ashamed to openly express your opinion against Daphanie when hiding your identity behind the pseudo name of “Joseph”?

        Can you respect our intelligence please?

        Baxxter ghandek zball meta ghedt ‘bil-logika mnejka tal-Maltin, il-mejjet issirlu agiografija, kien min kien u ghamel x’ghamel. Jigi trasfigurat f’qaddis intokkabbli’

        Zball ghaliex skond proverbju klassiku Ruman ‘de mortuis nihil nisi bonum’. Jigifieri ‘dwar il-mejtin tghid xejn hlief it-tajjeb’. Dan ma qalux xi plebew hamallu imma nies kolti bhal Cicerun ecc. Jigifieri li wara l-mewt issib xi haga tajba anke f’mostru hu sinjal ta’ civilizzazjoni.

      • H.P. Baxxter says:

        U l-PN hawnhekk qed jaghmel l-izball tipiku Malti: il-laghqizmu. Falsehood for the sake of reconciliation. Which will never happen anyway, the way things are going.

        Bandiera mezzasta indeed…. Lanqas il-protocol ma jafu. Jekk veru rridu nnizzlu l-bandiera mezzasta ghax miet ex-prim ministru, mela dan ghandu jsir fuq bini tal-Gvern ta’ Malta, mhux tal-partiti. Bah. Imbasta avukati.

      • FAVETTU says:

        This must be the blasphemy of the century – the PN should have never hoisted its flag at half-mast at the passing away of the beast who could never do them ever any worse than it did, irrespective of this being state mourning or not.

        Corner all the genuine PN supporters and see how (inwardly) insulted they all feel; this must be the worst of all recent mistakes we have suffered from the administration of our party. Please mark your actions please; stop acting blindly.

    • Frank Zammit says:

      Baxxter

      How one may rejoice on the death of another and post it everywhere for all to see is simply crass ignorance of the lowest kind.

      Surely can’t you keep these kinds of sentiment to yourselves or do you feel so relieved at the passing away of an old man that you feel you have to crack open the bottle?

      The mind boggles. And you have the balls to call others names?

      Listen you uneducated, rude twat. I was not around during his time but I was raised with an understanding of human respect. If you have the nerve and cheek to say these things, I would say to you, “look in the mirror” how can you say this, you are just a petulant child with a very small understanding of what really happened? I will tell you how. You are a fu**ing loser and have absolutely no respect: 1-for your elders 2-your betters 3-anyone with a brain. Really, get over yourself and let people mourn for their own and get off your paper soap box and let people be. I am somewhat sure you actually live in Malta, or you would not have given your obviously second hand opinion that is just a small persons way of sucking their own thumb. What a Loser. Get a Life!!

    • Investigator says:

      I am ex PN and have had to be careful about what I say because of the bad experience I was forced through. Dom Mintoff was not perfect. He never pretended to be. He did do a lot of good for the common people and the Nation as a whole.

      Hatred, sarcasm and cheap one sided comments only show how much more we have to learn. One thing is for sure, the man was a good negotiator. Lord Carrington said so. He did not give away public assets like John Dalli did when he sold Mid Med Bank for next to nothing without authority. Dom Mintoff and all the Maltese who participated in Malta moving forward are heroes. Dom Mintoff had a belief and the Maltese made Malta what it is because of people like him.
      Dom Mintoff the MAN and ARCHITECT with determination and foresight who gave the MALTESE NATION it’s EDUCATION, DIGNITY ,SELF-DETERMINATION AND FREEDOM. MAY HE R.I.P.

      Dom Mintoff was controversial in his life and he is controversial in his death. Due to this he will always be remembered good or bad.

      A lot of people have much to learn. This man fought against all odds and the big Western powers at a time when all other countries were going through a change demanding their Independence from colonialism. Has Malta lost its freedom and Sovereignty since joining the EU? I think it has.

      [Daphne – A very convincing imitation of an ex PN. You got the tone just right. ]

        Unlike most of the Labour supporters here I am using my name. This because I am used to violence being directed at me by the MLP supporters, I am used to victimization simply because of my political leanings.

        So no I am not afraid and never was to publish my name.

        Those of you who regard Mintoff as their father have a God given right to do so, but they only do so because they owe what they acquired to him, no they did not apply for the jobs they have or had but they were posted there with the blessing of the MLP (in those days Mintoff alone was the MLP.)

        Those who own houses nowadays worth over 200 K in Pembroke and other GHS areas owe it to Mintoff. But no Nationalist ever got those benefits.

        The words and threats here scare me for only one reason, my kids brought up in peaceful time in Malta since 1987 are going to have to face these people who have never changed, but have only been sleeping and bottling up their anger because they were afraid that they would be victimized like we were in their days.

        So let us all pray that we do not get another Mintoff and that these so called MALTESE CHANGE THEIR WAY as otherwise we are in for trouble.

        To those who used degrading words I say why don’t you show your names and tell us how you got your jobs.

If you have a personal grudge against him, do us all a favour and keep it to yourself. You must be ashamed of yourself. May you rot in hell like all witches deserve.

    [Daphne – ‘You have no right to talk against him that way’: Mintoffiani always did have a peculiar interpretation of free speech.]

    • Massimiliano says:

      There is a difference between free speech and hate speech. Make the distinction D.C.G. The argument of free speech and freedom of expression have been used as an excuse to justify some very shameful acts. Show some integrity and don’t stoop to such levels.

      You may not have agreed with some or many of his views in life but respect the dead, or is your copy of the bible missing some pages in the new testament.

    • Kurt Micallef says:

      Yes they did, just like they were in favour of the many social benefits that all of you now benefit from. :) However, there always is a limit and personally I feel that you just skipped that limit. Respect is another thing and it has nothing to do with freedom of speech…it seems that you lack that as well.

    • Fuck you says:

      You speak as if free speech is an absolute right Daphne.

      [Daphne – All rights are absolute, Fuck You (gosh, how I enjoyed saying that). That’s why they are rights. When rights appear to be conditioned or qualified, it is really a negative effect on the rights of others that we are talking about. One example: there is a right to privacy. The right to freedom of speech cannot be used to curtail the right to privacy. Nor, in the case of public persons, can the right to privacy be used to curtail the right to free speech.]

      Do you not realise that you’re inculcating violence?

      [Daphne – Have you read these comments here, Fuck You? Then don’t talk to me about violence. There is nothing violent in what I wrote, but the comments that came in response are quite unbelievable if you were not, as I was, raised under Labour and had to deal with all this as normal life.]

      What are you gaining out of this?

      [Daphne – I forgot for a minute there that in Labour/Maltese culture, you do things because you ‘get something’ out of it. That’s why you lot can’t understand what I am, what I do or that it’s normal elsewhere. And that’s why you say I must be paid to do it, because you wouldn’t do it unless you were paid handsomely. But then you couldn’t anyway, because you just don’t have what it takes, so there you go.]

      You’re rotten, and well, it doesn’t matter for Mintoff to have one idiot speaking like you on his death. But see the difference: YOU will have thousands of people speaking like you on your death. Now, that is the POWER of free speech ;)

      [Daphne – Mintoff’s death is being celebrated by many more people than one idiot, Fuck You. It’s just that this one idiot has a website and doesn’t give a flying f**k what people like you think. Nor am I even remotely afraid of your threats and violence. You’re all so freaking ridiculous, like the tool characters in some East End mob film.]

      • Fuck you says:

        As a matter of fact, not all rights are absolute, idiot.

        Fuck you ;)

        [Daphne – You’re clear on the matter that freedom of speech ends where my right to live free of threats begins, apparently, because you make a point of being anonymous. Fuck you? I’d rather become a lesbian.]

      • Fuck you says:

        Well, Daphne Caruana Galizia, let me give you a hint. I’m as anonymous as you are in court. And I can preserve my right to be anonymous to the same extent that I am able to link your articles to you in court. And trust me, I’m not making any efforts here.

        Therefore, quite frankly, I’m not the least afraid of what ever you think you could do.

        And, of course, fuck you, idiot ;)

        [Daphne – I have no intention to doing anything to you. I don’t have a Labour mentality, but perhaps you’ve noticed that. I just wonder why you’re all such bloody cowards. Scared of a woman? My, my, my. Tmorru taghmlula xi haga fid-dlam? Rgiel bla bajd.

      • Teresa Pace says:

        You are the one who provokes violence Daphne.You’re all so negative and provokes such hate between people, to yourself and your family.

      • Fuck you says:

        @ Daphne: This is the provocative side of my comment: You now make sexist remarks. Now you assume that an anonymous commentator is male, and you go beyond, to the ridiculous point that you assume the commentator is afraid of you. To a psychologist or psychiatrist, all this reveals just too much.

        As always,
        Fuck you ;) Idiot.

        And this is outside the scope of ‘fuck you’. A personal (and sincere) suggestion:

        Change your life. Make an apology to all those you’ve hurt, and base your new life on love, not anger. And I’m sorry for using the term ‘fuck you’. Just don’t be angry towards life. If you do, it WILL hit you back, in one way or another. Quite frankly, you can pretend that you give no fuck about what everyone says about you. But, unless you’re a genius, I’m sure you do care, deep inside down. And I’m sure you’re not a genius. If you were, then you wouldn’t give a fuck about Mintoff’s death, or anything else you spend so much time writing about. I repeat: base your life on love NOT ANGER.

      • Grezz says:

        I agree with Daphne that Mintoff’s death is being celebrated by more than one person.

        I yesterday posted a comment that at the exact time that Mintoff’s death was made public, there were shouts of joy in my neighbourhood, and, yes, fireworks were actually let off, too. Seriously. Just a little round of them, but certainly not a coincidence.

      • red says:

        Dear Grezz…. The fact that you have herd people celebrating Mintoff’s death shows that in fact the Nationalists might in fact be greater ‘hamalli’ than the labour as there were no celebrations nor people talking like DCG when Gwido De Marco passed away. I myself am a Nationalist and i know some of DCG’s family and i’m disapointed to read her post of celebration for the death of a person ! All in all i must add that if Mintoff and his Clikka did whatever they liked at their time, now we have the BLUE clikka doing whatever they like….. This is not something we should be talking about as this should have nothing to do with the death of a person.
        Please stop calling each other rude names as it can only provoke violence.

    • Joseph Carmel Chetcuti says:

      Daphne is yet to learn that free speech is not hate speech … which may well explain why some Labourites decided to put Nationalists like her in their place? She obviously needs to visit a psychiatrist although I doubt any sane psychiatrist would invite her to sit on his or her couch! They would probably throw themselves out of a window, preferring suicide to having to put up with her antics. Fancy being a columnist for The Malta Independent.

        [Daphne – It is not necessary to introduce or qualify your arguments with ‘I am not a fan of Daphne’s comments’. Let them stand alone.]

        This is with regards to a lot of comments I’ve read talking ill about privatization.

        Privatization is a very positive thing. You might reply that prices will go higher, and to that I say you’re right. But let me keep this simple… What about being taxed less? And you only pay for stuff which you actually need?

        And with regards to prices going higher due to privatization, keep in mind that privatization = competition, competition = private sector battles as to who will provide the cheapest and best services.

        There are a lot of other factors behind this which prove that privatization has more ups than downs, but I am trying to keep it very generalized and explain it in such a way that it will immediately give you a perspective of what privatization is.

      • Joseph Grech says:

      [Daphne – That’s a BBC obit, honey. You should see what the British media had to say about him when he was prime minister. You wouldn’t have been proud, I can tell you. No, he did not introduce social reforms. He broke the country’s back and made it such a terrible place to live that those who could get out tried any means to do so. WHAT EXACTLY DID THE NATIONALIST PARTY DO? Unbelievable. You’re 17. Do you honestly believe that Malta was always like this? All this, now, the Nationalist Party in government did. Until 1987, we lived in Albania.]

        ‘You should see what the British media had to say about him when he was prime minister.’: hahaa of course they may have said bad things about him…he was the biggest threat to them. He managed to convince them to pay for staying in their own colony.

        [Daphne – X’injoranza bazwija, jahasra. Malta ceased to be a colony with independence on 21 September 1964. When Mintoff became prime minister in 1971, Malta was not a British colony. That’s what INDEPENDENCE means. Terms and conditions for the British to stay on in Malta as a military base were negotiated – OBVIOUSLY – with independence. They were then renegotiated when Malta became a republic in 1974. Mintoff tried to renegotiate them again in 1979, but failed miserably and spectacularly. He had no plan B for income, and turned to Gaddafi. Freedom Day actually marks Mintoff’s failure to succeed in negotiations with the British, and Malta’s fate placed in Gaddafi’s hands because of that. Did your parents tell you this? Obviously not. But then, they probably don’t even know it themselves.]

        What a great mind you must have to be able to do that. The people weren’t getting out of Malta because of Mintoff…they were getting out because of post-war troubles…which would be present in any country under any government. But what do you know…you’re just a sad Nationalist who doesn’t have someone of such greatness to look up to. :)

      • Kurt Micallef says:

        …continued…

        All I know is that the Nationalist party is privatising everything from the dockyard to the public transport and nearly even Air Malta while Mintoff was bringing work back in Malta after dismissing the English

        [Daphne – “Dismissing the English”. Bambin aghtini pacenzja. 1. It’s the British, not the English. Many of them were Scottish, Welsh and Irish. 2. Privatisation is the way to go. It is not the business of the state to run businesses. 3. The dockyard was the Royal Navy dockyard not the state dockyard and it became an immediate and terrible liability once the British Navy left. Mintoff had no money to keep it going, it could never be a viable concern, and it cost the Maltese taxpayer hundreds of millions of liri which could have gone into schools and hospitals. 4. Mintoff did not ‘dismiss the English’. They dismissed him. Their contract was up on 31 March 1979 (that’s when the British financial year ends) and they had no intention of renewing after he put up the price. He was too embarrassed to back down again on the price and they told him politely to go and stuff himself, leaving him high and dry without a source of income, and then sailed out. He then turned to Gaddafi with his begging-bowl and Gaddafi said, yes, I’ll give you a few million dollars but in return, when I say ‘jump’ you have to say ‘how high’. And that’s about it, really.]

      • Kurt Micallef says:

        What an interesting lecture Miss Daphne. I apologise for the honest ‘English’ mistake but I didn’t know that I was retaking my A-level History exam ;) Ahh this brings me to another thing…no my parents didn’t have to tell me anything about politics, they didn’t have to since I got my A-level and did everything in detail, but please keep them out from this. I didn’t mention your parents, despite the urge to mention them in some obscene language :) During my history course I realised how Mintoff risked his political career to see Malta in the best position possible. He went from Integration (which was attacked by the Catholic Church [which I am sure that you are very fond of] in fear that it will lose its power) to absolute Independence. This differed from the Independence proposed by Olivier (which stated that the BRITISH were to keep control of our foreign and military affairs). There was also Strickland’s version of Independence, “quasi-independence”, which no one really understood. Mintoff believed in the Maltese…he believed that they were able to fend on there own. Like it or not, he was right

      • Jozef says:

        Kurt Micallef must be the prototype the PN should be working at, an imperative to clear the air of this incredible state of affairs.

        Honestly, when I see how they don’t have a clue, where everything, facts, history and basic economics are twisted under superlatives to shut anyone else up, I just wonder how sustainable all this can be.

        At least he tries to argue along the information he’s been fed, hopefully young enough to revise his mindset. He underlines, unwittingly, how Maltese history starts with Dom Mintoff.

      [Daphne – You are beyond redemption. The tragedy is that people like you have a vote, and if there are more of you than there are of anyone else, you get to decide who runs the country. If anyone doubted that formal education can only do so much with poor genetic material and to mitigate the influence of the home, all they have to do is read through the trash on this comments-board.]

      Perit Mintoff did many things for this country, and the Nationalist Party just continued on what he was building! So please Ms. Galizia, show some respect! You’re just making a huge show! All this, for a bit of attention from the media?

      [Daphne – ‘All this for a bit of attention from the media’. Hardly. After all, you only have to scroll through these comments to see that even people who can’t read or write, and who have certainly never read anything I’ve written, know about me. How did that happen, do you think? Yes, I love having to deal with dyslexic savages. It’s my all-time favourite thing.]

      • A.P says:

        [Daphne – What disability? Dyslexia? I see that you can’t do basic comprehension. I wrote ‘dyslexic savages’ and not ‘savage dyslexics.’]

      • A.P says:

        I comprende very well Ms. Galizia So much so I find your basic comrehension appalling . Get off what ever your so high on and show some respect to all Maltese citizens. You should be ashamed to call youself Maltese. I loath that we breath the same air.

    • Caroline says:

      OH dear Daphne! Don’t you have nothing better to say?? Talking shit cause someone made a Typo?? U dont have to be thick or brainwashed to know that you do not disrespect the dead this way! Im sure you would kick a huge hissy fit and sue anyone who attacks your family or loved ones in such a way ( and that is if you have any loved ones cause im not sure that there are any ppl stupid, damned thick and brainwashed enough to love someone as heartless like you)

    • Teresa Pace says:

      Daphne you’re a shame to the Nationalist party,a big shame.

    • Bolt VanderHuge says:

      The sheer idiocy of calling someone thick and brainwashed and then, in the same sentence, claiming the PN did nothing but good in the myriad years they’ve been in power is world-shattering. It’s as if you truly believe there’s no grey areas in life and people. I seriously hope you don’t do this.

      [Daphne – I didn’t say the Nationalist Party did nothing but good. I said that all the good we have now is because of Nationalist policies.]

      I claim no love for either party but reading your blog and comment replies, it’s quite clear you’re just as thick and brainwashed as every other stereotypical Malteaser. You yell about how one party are infallible gods amongst men and the other party is pure evil and reply to any dissent with “mahruq” or citing cherry-picked facts and ignoring everything else. I’m disappointed to say the least, I expected someone who claims to be well-read and with a prestigious journalism background to back it up.

      [Daphne – I never claimed anything of the sort. I am not Franco Debono’s sister. That is what you think of me, not what I think of myself.]

      Sensationalist journalism at best, inciting violence and hatred at worst. Commenters screaming for blood and throwing personal insults aren’t any better either.

      • Bolt VanderHuge says:

        What if said person is a student and receives a stipend? Stipends were introduced by Mintoff and we still have that policy (if perhaps amended), ergo that comment is false and we have good policies from both governments in effect afterall.

        If you believe the Nationalist Party actually did do some bad, then you naturally believe the Labour Party did some good as well. Why not make an article about that to dispell the stigma? I don’t think you would because you deftly avoided my previous comment about being a simple hardcore Nationalist with a loud voice, much like all the other hardcore anythings. It’s just as bad as what you call a “Mintoffjan”, you’re just wearing a different shirt, sadly.

        You don’t claim anything of the sort but you imply it so heavily, you might as well have stated it outright. You hold a prominent position as a Maltese celebrity, for better or worse, and you squander that by simply using it to make your loud voice even louder. Why not point out the good and bad in each politician and earn the respect of your contemporaries instead of furthering a personal biased agenda?

    • AB says:

      Actually I don’t love Mintoff, I have never voted for MLP in my life and probably never will.

    • Frankie says:

      And this God’s give to men just wrote: But you should have learned that by now, even if you’re too damned thick and brainwashed to see that all you have today you have because of the Nationalist Party in government.] Are you on drugs??? Either you’re so damn thick and stupid to believe all this yourself (which I believe you’re not) or you’re so damn brainwashed with hatred to anything labour that you’re actually trying to convince yourself or trying to fool people? So you want anybody to believe that all the social services that Mintoff introduced, and to which PN ALWAYS voted against, were done by PN, like for instance, to name a few, Minimun wage, 40 hour week, leave and sick leave, bonuses, women’s right to vote, women getting equal pay as men (yes, PN voted against this as well, as according to them, women, you included, were only good to stay in the kitchen and produce babies!), free hospitals, obligatory education, right to civil marriage, subsidized loans, free housing and so on, weren’t all those the legacy of the GREAT DOM MINTOFF ?

      • Frankie says:

        “She spent her entire childhood under this tyrant’s domination” By the looks of it, was she locked in a cellar chained to the wall given only cocroaches and piss to eat? was her father killed and her mother raped in front of her eyes by this so called tyrant? That is what Tyrant do, don’t they? Is this what Mintoff was? I’m sure Grezz you don’t even know or remember Mintoff, you’re only expressing your sorry ignorance and stupidity in your writing.

      • Jozef says:

        Actually, I’m from Zurrieq.

        The problems started when Mintoff insisted on creating ghettoes in the form of housing estates against the vote.

        In ten years time, when the children are gone and the parents packed off to one of Marlene’s planned residences, whole acres of sprawl will lie empty.

        Fragmentation was the instrument to ban access amongst ourselves, distance became literally virtual.

        Who wants Hal-Farrug, Laqxija, San Gwann and what have you? Mintoff’s design failed us miserably, just watch them.

    I am sorry but you are a rude and evil bitch. How can you be so rude and inconsiderate to this man’s family regardless of your political beliefs. I am foreign and do not care about Maltese politics or your red and blue parties. The problem let me tell you with this country is rude and arrogant people like you. May I be the first one to piss on your grave some day hope the saints don’t go marching out when you reach the pearly gates. May you rot in hell.

    • La Redoute says:

      For a foreigner who doesn’t care about politics, you care a hell of a lot about Mintoff.

      • Christine says:

        I don’t care about Mintoff at all. However a decent person has respect for the family members who are mourning. To them he was not the ex-prime minister but a member of the family that they just lost. It is completely shows lack of class to disrespect that. I can’t even vote, it makes no difference to me who is in government. I think this women lacks class and respect and this was my point.

        [Daphne – ‘This woman lacks class’. Ghax dawk li jivvutaw ghal Mintoff klessy hafna, Alla jbierek. Christine, those who weren’t raised in the gutter don’t go about worrying that people might think they were, and tailoring their behaviour accordingly. One of the spectacular benefits of having no concerns about your origins is not giving a rat’s ass what other people think – especially people like you.]

    • Zammit says:

      Let me get this straight: you are criticising Daphne for her comments as a general problem of this country, then as a foreigner you threaten to behave exactly the same way when she dies?

      Clever. Anyway, Mintoff was not the messiah; he was a very naughty boy. For every person here who ‘”loved” him, there is one who hated him.

      More or less – let’s say 51% hated him. That’s just in the Maltese islands.

      Incidentally, he is the father of the red and blue divisions in this country, and his legacy lives on, though not in the history books written by the Labour Party, mind.

      P.S. I bet people danced about when Hitler killed himself and I bet some people thought that was rude.

      • Rosemarie Cachia says:

        well said Mr/Mrs/Miss Zammit, at last somebody is talking sense !!

      • Christine says:

        I don’t care who loved or hated him or what he did in the past to be honest. I absolutely does not concern me now and never will. However love or hate the guy he has a family and to them he is a father, cousin, brother uncle be it what may. So seeing someone disrespect a family in mouning made me angry.

        And yes I am sure they danced about when Hitler died however no one was rude enough to right about it on the night of his death.

        As I said I could careless about Mintoff it is what Daphne represents that bothers me and that is ignorance.

        [Daphne – They didn’t have the internet or the free press in Germany when Hitler killed himself, Christine. Get a grip. But a hell of a lot was said in the free press elsewhere. There were also several famous ditties, including ‘Hitler only has one ball’ and more in a similar vein.

        You fail to distinguish between public figures and private. Mintoff was a prime minister, the worst but one that Malta ever had (the worst was his successor KMB). If he were anyone else, nobody would give a damn. But the criticism comes with the praise. Learn to live with it and grow up into the democratic world.

        I do not represent ignorance, Christine. Mintoff represented ignorance. He was the representative of ignorance in parliament. Ignorant people put him there and he represented them.

        I am not, never were and never will be in parliament, and so I cannot represent ignorance. Also, ignorant people, as we have seen amply demonstrated on this comments-board, tend to hate me with a passion. I represent everything they fear, mistrust and despise, and it certainly is not ignorance we’re talking about.]

        Daphne has every right to say what she wants here, because

        1. It is HER blog, not YOURS.

        2. We live in a democratic country, an island called MALTA, not NORTH KOREA.

        3. Daphne is one hundred percent right about Mintoff. I know – I may have suffered a bit less but I lived it too. I was also born in the sixties and was one of the many unlucky ones who lost many opportunities and had our freedom taken away from us. It was not about MARS bars and PEPSODENT, Rhona, it was about OUR FREEDOM, not to mention the violence some of us either experienced personally or saw happenning with our very own eyes – of course, I do not expect you to understand – I suspect you were not even born then.

        4. No one is forcing you to read what you do not like to read, and vice versa – we are living in 2012 not 1981.

        5. I hope that you realise that Daphne is even uploading your comments, calling her stupid and every name under the sun – again, we are not living in 1981.

        So before getting all offended and continue to post idiotic comments, both here and elsewhere, I suggest you should ignore any drivel you may have been fed, perhaps from the very day you were born, and do some decent research, look for information one can actually rely on. Inform yourself better and try to put yourself in the shoes of those of us who lived those horrible events.Then, and only then, you will perhaps be able to conclude with an open mind who and what is right and what’s not.

    Dear Daphne

    If you keep a lower key on name calling it would be so much better. How dare you speak in that manner especially about a recently deceased person…feelings for family if you have any? MLP supporters read your article, since they associate you with PN (unfortunately for us that is) they will run a mile from PN and spread hate towards PN as if there isnt enough..
    A hateful and arrogant article which shouldnt have been published at all if you have a bit of conscience that is.
    Yes Dom Mintoff did both…he did alot of good and not so good as well. Now let him rest in peace.

  39. Antoniette says:

    Thank you for telling us it’s your birthday.
    I hope you don’t mind but I will be celebrating your birthday too.
    Happy birthday and have fun, it’s a CELEBRATION!

  40. Leon Caruana says:

    Make a favour to all of us… And Shut the fuck up you stupid ignorant bitch. May you &your ……. Rip .

    • CZ says:

      The beauty in all this is that when Mintoff was in power you HAD to “shut the fuck up” or you’d get beaten by his thugs or worse. Now we can all swear and hate freely…

  41. Mary Xuereb says:

    How can you be so vile? You should be utterly ashamed – call yourself a human being? If only you had half as much goodness in all your body as he had in just one hair. He will be remembered for all the good he did and yes probably also for the mistakes he made in this life…but he was human. You on the other hand are not worth remembering. The King is dead but his legacy will live on.

    • CZ says:

      Mary, his legacy is that half of us hate the other half. It actually wasn’t this way before ‘the King’ usurped the crown…

      • JP says:

        CZ, you really know your history…not. Go back to the library!

      • Albert says:

        Int bis-serjeta??????Aqra l-istorja ha tara kienx haw mibgheda politika qabel Mintoff…..fittex u ara x’kienu jaghmlu,jinqdew bil-knisja u l-injoranza biex ibghedu n-nies mil-PL.Kull fejn kien hemm bniedem li pprova jaqbez ghall-batut u ghad-drittijiet tal-haddiema qala kemm felah fuq rasu,bhal Manuel Dimech…..prova jeduka l-poplu izda spicca hazin.

        Mintoff kellu l-hazin ukoll,pero l-gid li ghamel ma tistax tinsih.Gid li qeghdin ingawdu llum,jekk ihalluna!!Dak li kitbet DCG ma tantx tajt kazu,l-aktar ghax dak huwa l-oghola livell safejn tista tasal….tizra l-mibgheda.

      • CZ says:

        I should have clarified. Mintoff’s legacy to my generation… In 1981 when the Labour Party lost an election and Mintoff remained in power, I was just old enough to learn to start hating the other side. Why, were you hating before then?

      • Jozef says:

        Albert,

        Manuel Dimech haseb, li jekk jisraq bicca tal-gwerra u jhedded li jgharraqha, il-kuruna (li dak is-zmien kellha aktar minn hamest elef vapur) kienet se ccedilu.

        Apparti li, ta’ sbatax, gie mixli u nstab hati li qatel wiehed biex seraqlu flusu. Siehbu ta’ tmintax ha l-forka u hu helisha ghax tifel.

        Tghallem jaqra ta’ hamsa u ghoxrin, l-ewwel ktieb li mess telghalu ghal-rasu.

        Kapolavur iehor.

  42. Taks Fors says:

    Amen to that.

    He screwed up so many lives, harmed so many people and ruined the country, which is yet to fully recover after 30 years.

    It takes so little to break a nation but so much to rebuild one.

    • Mary says:

      I can’t understand you idiots when you say ‘ruined the country’! Runined it how ? By giving everyone free education, by giving free medical services, by giving pensions ( which by the way this govement wants to take away), by giving jobs to people, by opening the air malta which thanks to this goverment they drove it to the ground! The list goes on, I advice you to go and read the Maltese history.
      I don’t know how these things can ruin a country but if u choose to believe that continue being ignorant!!

    • ggggg says:

      FUCK YOU

    • JP says:

      Taks Fors, you must me Malta’s No.1 Economist.

      Hope your social skills come handy here, if you have any.

  43. Teresa Pace says:

    As a continuation to my previous comment…..It is not a way to talk about a recently deceased person Daphne. Feelings for the family if you have any???? They are humans and have feelings like you?
    I noticed the photo and the comment…did you have to add that comment???? Such a hateful comment. And the title….
    What you sow you reap….sow hatred and guess what you reap…

    • A E says:

      Precisely Theresa that is what Mintoff sowed – hatred. He thrived on it and nurtured it, dividing a nation so he could control it. Hatred This is his legacy and everything here is evidence to that.

  44. johann says:

    Now Daphne keep to your words after he is buried go and spit on his grave. If you are a woman do it. You are a truly disgrace for the maltese country :)

      L-Air Malta
      Fil-21 ta’ Marzu, 1973 il-parlament Malti approva mozzjoni tal-Prim Ministru Laburista,
      Dom Mintoff, biex titwaqqaf kumpanija nazzjonali tal-ajru – l-Air Malta. L-Air Malta
      ġiet imwaqqfa bl-assistenza tal-Gvern tal-Pakistan. Il-kumpanija nazzjonali irċiviet ħafna
      kritika mill-oppożizzjoni Nazzjonalista, li ppreferew jagħmlu użu minn kumpaniji tal-ajru
      barranin milli dik lokali.
      Bank of Valletta
      Fit-23 ta’ Marzu, 1974 gie mhabbar il-ftuh tal-Bank of Valletta, l-ewwel bank kollu
      kemm hu Malti. 60% ftal-ishma fil-bank kienu ser ikunu f’isem il-Gvern Malti filwaqt li
      l-40% l-ohra kienu ser jinbiegħu lil pubbliku Malti.
      Miżuri oħra tal-Gvern Laburista (1971-1976)
      Il-Gvern ta’ Mintoff waqqaf bosta miżuri fosthom:
      • In-nazzjonalizzazzjoni kif ukoll il-bidu ta’ bosta kumpaniji propjetà tal-istat,
      fosthom l-Air Malta, is-Sea Malta, il-Bank of Valletta, il-Mid-Med Bank, itTelemalta u x-Xandir Malta;
      • Tnaqqis fid-differenza fis-salarji bejn l-ogħla u l-iktar grad baxx fis-servizzi ċivili;
      • L-għoti ta’ żieda għall-għoli tal-ħajja u bonuses bi flat rate minflok b’perċentwali;
      • L-introduzzjoni tas-sistema PAYE (Pay-As-You-Earn) u higher ceiling fejn tidħol
      it-taxxa tad-Dħul;
      • Il-bidu ta’ skema nazzjonali tas-saħħa;• Id-demolizzjoni ta’ slums u l-bini ta’ bosta units residenzjali għall-ħaddiema u lfamilji tagħhom;
      • Xiri bulk-buying ta’ prodotti mportati bħall-ħalib, zokkor u butir bi prezzijiet
      orħos;
      • Bosta riformi fil-leġiżlatura industrijali bħal per eżempju, it-tnaqqis tal-working
      week għal 40 siegħa u liġi favur paga ndaqs għal ħaddiema nisa;
      • Iż-żieda fin-nefqa għas-servizzi soċjali kif ukoll l-introduzzjoni ta’ servizzi bħaċ-
      Children’s Allowance;
      • It-tneħħija ta’ streaming u eżamijiet fi skejjel statali;
      • Bosta proġetti turistiċi;
      • Inbnew oqsma industrijali ġodda u dawk eżistenti ġew imkabbra;
      • Ġiet mibnija pista tal-ajru ġdida li kienet takkomoda vetturi tal-arju kbar;
      • L-introduzzjoni ta’ korpi tax-xogħol bħall-Korpi tal-Pijunieri, li kienu jagħmlu
      bosta xogħol ta’ kostruzzjoni. Membri ta’ dawn il-korpi kienu miċħuda mid-dritt li
      jissieħbu trade unions.

        Ghax ma tikkuntemplax il-fatt li daqs kemm tejjeb il-qaghda ta’ certi familji, daqshekk iehor Mintoff halla hsara kbira u gab faqar lil ohrajn minhabba il-mibgheda kbira li kellu ghan-nies edukati.

        Biss biss, ara kif dawwar in-nies kontra l-ghalliema, li kienu l-unici nies li setghu verament jedukawlhom lit-tfal taghhom.

        L-uniku wirt li hadna minghand Mintoff kienet mibgheda harxa bejn il-Laburisti u n-Nazzjonalisti ghax hlief isahhanhom kontra xulxin ma kienx jaghmel.

        Mintoff fired poplu.

    You just gave your behaviour a definition “totally cress” and seems like you are so proud of it. Please, stop embarrassing us and make yourself a favour – leave the country immediately.

    Go to countries where this behaviour is not tollerable, will be a good challenge for you. There you can prove yourself how good you are. Malta is easy for you as justice is weak.

    It is clear that your self belief is on a very low standard as you always feed the negative side of you and you are not capable to deal with it yourself so you share it publicly. Massive ego that is killing you from your inside. Seek help, you truly need it.

    [Daphne – Tolerance and tolerable have only one L. I can’t understand why it takes Laburisti so long to understand this.]

        Yes we know who you are, you are a freak of nature and you think you can take it against everyone but remember that at the end it will come on you for sure. If you had a personal grudge for Mintoff you should have kept it for yourself and not hurt other people’s feelings. You are a shame on your family and instead of protecting them you are putting them in danger. I ‘m sorry for you but I think you should seek a doctor and also work on your manners as you should learn not to hurt others and not to be selfish. A bitch is not the rigfht word for you as a bitch gives and takes, but you hurt people who did not do anything to you. You are a disgrace to this country and even you Nationalist party shoud get rid of you, shame on you jaqqqqqq

And stop telling people what they have a right to write and what they don’t have a right to write. We’re not living under Mintoff anymore and you really need to get ‘freedom of speech’ defined for you. The only thing you’re not allowed to do is lie about others or invade the privacy of non-public figures.]

        For the most part I disagree with Daphne and obviously I do not heart what she wrote up here, but it shocks me to see so many of you trying to silence people and imposing your beliefs on others.

        If you are mourning Mintoff, by all means do so, but appreciate that not everyone is going to harbour your exact same sentiments and that everyone has an opinion and a right to FREELY write and describe what he/she really feels without any restrictions.

    By the way, recently you wrote that your hosting service was upgraded to cater for a spike in page requests. It’s either that you’ve got this wrong or this evening the run on site was far greater than those which took place towards the end of last year when you had last gone viral on Facebook.

  64. Mark Sciberras says:

    You truly are a sick and loathsome woman, Daphne. I never voted for Labour, experienced the worst of the eighties and guess what, consider you a vile, despicable woman for posting such hate (not just Mintoff, but his daughter too???) nonetheless. Did you ever even visit Gaddafi’s Libya, do you even know what went on there, while equating Malta under Mintoff with that?? But enough of that, that is not the point. The point is your unalloyed hate, the utter lack of even an ounce of empathy or sympathy with the hundreds of thousands, let alone one grieving daughter, who today mourn the passing away of a man. The Nationalist Party should disassociate itself from you and your blog in the clearest possible manner, once and for all. Even if there is, theoretically, no logical need to do so, the merest hint of association with you and your name is poison, not just to a political party but to any respectable person. Do not kid yourself about the tens of thousands who visit your site….most of them may concur with what you say some of the time, but even Gadaffi, seeing that you mentioned him, did a good thing or two, and his name and incoherent ramblings generated a lot of traffic on the web…….

    • A E says:

      There are two daughters. Perhaps though your comment is right and only one of them is grieving.

      The man was 96 and they kept away from him for most of his life. Only when it looked like the end was nigh did they come to his side. God only knows what treasures he has hidden.

    • Antoniette says:

      What went on in Libya did not go on in Malta not because of Mintoff but because we had Eddie Fenech Adami and the Nationalist Party to steer us in the right direction.
      I cannot believe how seeemingly intelligent people cannot understand this.

  65. Darren Caruana says:

    Am sure all will bet that it will be you (the bitchest of all bitches) that will rot in hell and not the greatest statesman of all times who gave an Identity and all that we enjoy today to our country incluing you.

    As a matter of fact I think you are already rotting in hell even though still alive. You have no shame and you have made it clear manyatimes that you are unhuman and deserve nothing more then be tortured in a village pjazza

    You only wish you had a fraction of the respect Dom Mintoff .
    gets.

  67. Rob79 says:

    Wow! Unbelievable! To hold still such a grudge against someone whose last major political activity involved helping your beloved party to power. When was this? Oh, yes! Last millennium.

    Speaking of hypocrites, to say he was perfect is as vile as claiming all the blue boys are holier-than-thou. Perhaps you might want to consider some positive contributions he made such as taking a stance against the church. An institution that was surely more cancerous to society for a far longer period and in which parasitic traces can be found not only by the hypocrisy of it’s followers but by the far reaching effect of ‘bad conscience’ it is guilty of inflicting throughout Europe and beyond. Evidence found in your article above.

    Perhaps you should have celebrated your birthday and enjoyed this ‘glory’ privately rather than showing how low one can stoop. Speaking your mind can be psychologically beneficial, and considering the contempt and bitterness you held for so long, recommendable. However, please keep it to you inner circle, cause as you put it, such behaviour is indeed totally crass

      No shit … I mean honestly, who would want to pay respects to a woman who lacks even the most basic of common courtesies? The only reason why your funeral will be private is so that people don’t come in masses to spit on your coffin.

    • A says:

      Your point being what daphne? that all of malta will not know that you died? i can guarantee that just after minutes after your death your own doctor will tweet it. you’re making it seem that your private funeral will save you from the hatred you’ll recieve from the people….it won’t.

  72. DAVID MANGION says:

    You are right in saying that your life would have been totally different had it not been for Dom Mintoff. Firstly you would not have been entitled for a vote, remember the Malta Labour Party gave the right to women to vote. Secondly you might not have become such a thrash writer or even a writer for the matter. So whatever you are today,be it good or bad Mintoff had a role in it. Your Beauty or the lack of it cannot however be attributed to him.When your time is up I sincerely hope that you will not be judged by what you wrote on hearing about Dom Mintoff’s demise which I find shameful. I hope that the Nationalist Party in government will disassociate itself from your remarks and that the state funeral will give its true value to the most prominent Maltese statesman of the 20th Century.

    I too feel no remorse at Mintoff’s passing away.

    It is a pity it took him so long. Today the world is a better place.

    As for those saints marching out, I don’t think that where he is heading, he is going to encounter many saints.

    • Konti Ugolino says:

      My sentiments exactly. My own father never lived to the grand old age of 96 but died early as a direct result of Dom’s spiteful policies.

      My own child never reached adulthood. Her death was directly connected to the shoddy services (or rather the lack of them) provided by Dom’s best health service in the world.

      Now that he is no more, I hope he will get exactly what he deserves in the next world, if there is one.

      • Linda Kveen says:

        I am so sorry for your loss. I totally empathise with you.

        My own beloved mother died at the young age of 50, in 1981, in the mess that was then St Luke’s Hospital.

        Perhaps, if these Laburisti had lost someone close to them thay would understand why we are not shedding any tears at the death of Mintoff.

      • mzammit says:

        yes like the new hospital Mater dei is better, cancer machines not working…. not enough beds.. patients on stretchers…. not enough medicines…. waiting YEASRS for an operation?! what the hell??? and this is what you would call a Better life?! They should make Dom Mintoff a Saint! and put all those who say bad things about him in hell so that they can reflect on how stupid they are! Mintoff changed Malta and throughout his leadership he managed to make Malta better! I respect that some people don’t like him but not that much to spit on his grave?!! AND SAY IT IN PUBLIC come on!!! this only shows that the nazzjonalisti are full of hatred and hate anyone who makes competition! Seeing all these comments made me realise more how much the PNs hate the maltese and are not trying to improve Malta but to make it suffer by being lead for other years by you PNs…. People like you Daphne should be ashamed to say Youre Maltese and ashamed to say youre human because even animals are always loyal to their leader even when he ill treats them sometimes because they have faith in him and Love him just as much as we love dom mintoff. but dont worry! mintoff being a great person will forgive you for all the bad things you said and if you feel like spitting on his grave then do so.. but you’ll be the sinner then.. not him!

  81. Angus Black says:

    “….but quite frankly, the saints will probably go marching OUT once he walks in’

    Are you sure he’ll make it that far?

    As I sat down for a late supper, the news broke followed by a documentary on Dear Dom on NET TV.

    I enjoyed supper and even had dessert, which I do not normally indulge in.

    Although, as the documentary went through events chronologically, it got worse by the minute, inducing a high degree of revulsion in my guts, but somehow I still managed to enjoy a lovely meal. I felt no remorse but in the end, I pitied the man.

    He could have done so much more, so much good had it not been his super ego, so patronizing and so bull headed.

    He was the master of short term gain for a long term pain. He divided Malta and left Malta divided and still in pain of remembering this tin-pot tyrant, though some even go as far as describing him a ‘giant’, a ‘hero’ and a ‘statesman’.

    • Tano says:

      It’s very sad that you did’nt choke on your pretty supper. But hope you will choke on you next one. Good luck!!!

    • m. gauci says:

      • sjf says:

        M. Gauci, i’ve never commented on a blog in my life, but when i saw your comment i must admit it got me thinking. You are one hell of an idiot!

    • Linda Kveen says:

      “Cancer machine.” There is no such thing as a “cancer machine.”

      That would imply a machine that causes cancer. What I suppose you are referring to is a radiation machine.

      If you don’t like the service offered at Mater Dei, at least you have the choice of going to a private hospital.

      We were not so lucky. Mintoff closed the only two private hospitals on the island and we had no choice but to go to St Luke for our medical care.

      Mintoff had locked the Maltese doctors out of the hospital because of the doctors’ dispute so it was staffed with the medical students and foreign doctors. It was a place of chaos. Truly a nightmare.

      As for Mintoff being forgiving, are you kidding me? You really don’t know anything about him, do you? He was one of the most unforgiven and vindictive man who ever lived.

  82. Darren Caruana says:

    Ofcourse you removed the comment/s, She Devil !

    [Daphne – I didn’t remove them, Darren. They’re all here waiting for upload while I was out on the town celebrating. Now I’m back and going through them. Such fun being reminded what a load of chicken-brains Mintoff had for fans.]

    Dear Mrs Caruana Galizia, as a Maltese person I am utterly disgusted with this post, as a labourite i’m not surprised nor impressed by what you’ve written. I will not stoop to such a low level to reply in kind and wish you any of the colorfull wishes you’ve just sent to Dom Mintoff. I appreciate that Mr. Mintoff didn’t go down well with a portion of the Maltese society, thats quite normal in a democracy, however I salute Dom Mintoff for the good deeds he done and for the social revolution he brought to his dear Malta.

    I wish you well,

    Malcolm Farrugia.

      • Mark Buttigieg says:

        Constructive not destructive. When a person dies at least have respect for the family. I wonder what she would do if someone close had to die and comments like these are passed. It’s a pity she acts this way as she ruins the whole image of her family. Well daphne I won’t swear at you or go down to your level with indecent comments but would love to hear from you and know if you where dropped on the floor when you where a baby?

      • Tano says:

        Really?????

      • A M says:

        I didn’t quite like Dom Mintoff either, but I find this article to be in bad taste. At the end of it all, this article does not affect me in any actual way, however, you have managed to upset a belligerent bunch of Mintofjani to an extreme this time.

        [Daphne – Yes, that’s exactly why I do it. The expressions are ‘rattling their cage’ and ‘yanking their chains’. We were on our way out yesterday when I said, wait, before we leave I have to upload something about how happy I am that the old bugger has popped it at last, so that on our return I’ll find 300 comments threatening me with death and torture in dyslexic sentences, all of which I shall upload to show what sort of people vote Labour.]

        I wonder if you realize that this article could end up hurting you, and I do not mean career-wise (you’re already in the toilet as far as I’m concerned). Perhaps, soon enough, someone else who you probably loathe with a profound passion will be writing an article about your death, though I quite doubt you’ll make it to old age at the rate you’re upsetting people.

        [Daphne – I don’t know whether you’ve worked this one out yet, A M, but when I’m dead I’m not going to be bothered about some person writing an article ‘that will hurt me’. The dead are beyond reach. It’s not as though Mintoff is sobbing in some corner saying ‘look at what that bitch wrote about me’. More’s the pity, of course. Fortunately, I had more than enough time to let him know what I think before he went senile and lost the ability to read it.]

        Your capability of seriously angering the ignorant (or your opinion of what journalism is) will inevitably backfire on you.

        [Daphne – Wrong. Staying silent will. We got saddled with Mintoff because of fear.]

  85. Lisa says:

    You’re a real bitch!

    If Mintoff was a sociopath …you are no less! YOU are appalling and hateful! I wish no harm to people…..but I might end up wishing you to rot in hell…you’re evil!!!

    • IMHO says:

      The difference, Lisa, is that Mintoff was in power and stayed there, wreaking havoc over everyone’s lives, including yours, though you wouldn’t know it.

      To clarify my rather pithy comment, I’m old enough to remember Mintoff and KMB’s shenanigans and even witnessed close up various violent incidents in Rabat pre-1987. Mintoff’s death is no loss to Malta.

      However I don’t see the benefit of revelling in his death. I’d much rather see people like you take the higher moral ground. (Not hard, frankly.) The potential long-term downside of this sort of post is greater than the short-lived upside. If there even is one.

        So how come nobody condemns this poet’s post? What he’s saying is far worse than what DCG said. And far more worrying.

  112. maryanne says:

    Why do all these people care what Daphne thinks about Mintoff?

    I am waiting for them to go and ask Alfred Sant what he thinks and what his sentiments are. Is he going to say he’s sorry for calling him a traitor?

    • Qeghdin Sew says:

      As if Sant would still be carrying that chip on his shoulder.

      [Daphne – You don’t know much about him if you think he’s not one to bear grudges. He bears terrible grudges. Surely you should have been able to observe this from his public statements and behaviour.]

  113. Frank Grech says:

    Utmost disgraceful piece of disrespect I have come across shame on you, for even writing that ! I live in Australia and find that article disturbing, I meet Dom Mintoff in 1990 enjoying his past time at Dalimara a true gentleman inviting us on many occasions, He put Malta on the map of the world, I’m sure your enjoying the fruits of this era and bad mouthing Mintoff at the same time Shame on you!

    [Daphne – Yes, Frank, I know that you emigrated to Australia and that you’re a Mintoffian, because you told me. Not that you needed to, because practically all the Maltese who emigrated there were Mintoffians. And that can only be a good thing, because imagine if you’d all stayed here. The frigging bastard would still be prime minister.]

    • Frank Grech says:

      Sad very sad that you view history in this way , open your eyes and open your ears and learn that making Malta what it is today had to have a starting point and that starting point was what Dom Mintoff did for Malta , in life some times if you believe in it and see greatness you push as hard as you can to achieve it ! your not going to tell me what Malta is today just happened , Malta today is MAGNIFICENT and has evolved into a beautiful island and prosperity and its name is known all around the world …your article just proves to me and to many you have alot of learning to do … if you had any future in politics i think you have just closed the door on your self , and by the way many Australian Maltese NATIONALIST OR LABOUR like Mr Dominic Mintoff or not would respect his work and not disrespect him in the way you have done with your article

    • Ben Cassar says:

      careful what you wish for babe :/ there’s a thing called karma! peace out!

      • Cole says:

      • Ben Cassar says:

        You confused me ‘Defni’ are you talking to me, or the rest of the forum? Please I invite you to correct my grammar! Bitchy as it may be, I don’t mind. That means I will learn something new today! But if my grammar is correct, than stop stating useless comments like these ‘Ma tafux tiktbu u tahsbu’ cause your sticking to one argument hence being pathetic!

        [Daphne – It’s Daphne, with a flat A and not an e, as in ‘cat’, which you probably pronounce ‘ket’ anyway.]

      • Ben Cassar says:

        I like calling you ‘Defni’ is suits you…. Some people call me Benji :)

        [Daphne – Exactly my point. And when other people call you Banji, you think that they have that Maltese problem with vowel sounds.]

      • Ben Cassar says:

        when I’m in a bitchy mood I tend to dislike it yes, but on the whole I’m not that sensitive… happy pill Dahp?

Of course you have got a different DNA inside you bunch of pig shit as I guess no such cruelty was said when one of the ex PN Ministers died like you did on Mintoff’s death. You guys never finish to impress, but at least we know with whom we are dealing in 2012, that results how you should be treated after

  117. carlos says:

  118. Babe says:

    Muscat said that he feels orphaned by the death of Dom.

    I do not harbour such feelings. My mother was not a whore, my father not a cuckold and I am no bastard. If he feels orphaned, that’s his problem.

      [Daphne – ‘Go fuck your mother’, like ‘bastard’ and ‘cunt’, are terms of abuse which English usage reserves exclusively for men. ‘Go fuck your mother’ is not a lesbian insult.]

    Daphne I admire your work very very much.

    To me you are a true journalist because you are not ashamed of saying the truth.

    Do not let people bring you down with their words because you truly stand up for those people that have seen cruelty through mintoff’s ways.

    As said in a previous comment ‘GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH’.

    Continue doing what you do Daphne. My family amd I are behind you all the way and not us alone, because many other Maltese think so highly of you. I don’t even consider Mintoff a human being let alone give him my respect. And have a good birthday Daph Xxx

  130. James Tyrrell says:

    I fail to see why some people are surprised at your comments as it is just further proof, not than any was required in my opinion, of what a repulsive bitch you are. Have you any idea just how happy people will be when you die, which given the way you look can’t be far off. Just think, even members of your own and Peter’s families will be glad to see the back of you and the Nationalist Party will breathe a huge sigh of relief that they are no longer associated with you and your foul mouth. The good point to all this is that every time you come off with crap like this you lose that twat Gonzi more votes!

    • Frankie's Barrage says:

      Ah, a lecture from a former member of an organisation created to persecute the weak, the downtrodden and the underprivileged.

Not to mention the kind of security personnel guarding the PN headquarters this lately. Nahseb li kulhadd ghandu xi jxomm taht idejh hux veru ? Hatred and violence in this country started much earlier than the mintoff era and YES the mintoff administration was unable to stop it. Shameful indeed as is shameful the promotion of violent MLP era police officers to higher ranks under EFA, I will never beleive that those officers were ever mintoffjani , more likely PN supporters doing their best to stain MLP ‘ s image and my god it worked.

      Continue entertaining her, guys, for she is definitely succeeding in entertaining me.

      Values, by the way? Oh yes, that’s it. Disgusting language used in your comments. A prime example of Labour’s values. Close-minded and horrified comments? Another such value.

    He did more harm than any other politician in Malta.

    Many Maltese had to emigrate. You can tell what character he was from the friends he kept, namely Gaddafi, The Chinese Communists, the North Koreans, the dictators of the Soviet bloc, Lorry Sant…etc

    He became filthy rich through rebuilding under the War Damage programme. He also forced people to bath in rusted water, and buy inferior expired products during his regime.

    He was a bastard, and used to make fun of his own supporters during those famous riots or public meetings. He once called the Shipyard workers, his own beloved supporters, men without balls. I was there, observing.

    I agree with you, and even being gone from Malta for the past 20 years hasn’t changed the way I feel about this man who tried but failed to take away our freedom, who persecuted us in our own homes and robbed us of our belongings.

    Happy birthday from the USA where freedom of speech reigns supreme!

    • no shame no gain says:

      tried to take your freedom? its amazing how hatred distorts reality. Reality is he brought you freedom. And now that freedom is gone again, as Malta still has to answer to the EU. That is the problem with the nationalist party. They never believed Malta could stand on its own two feet, never believed that its people are capable of running it on their own terms. Its disgraceful to be like that. The highlight of ones career is when he gets a job overseas, as its regarded as you are so good as they employed you overseas!
      what did they rob you of? did they come to your house and steal from you? in the name of labour and mintoff?
      And yes in america freedom of speech reings supreme, but you cannot go get free medical assistance like you get in Malta. So god fordbid you ever need it, i hope you have good insurance or they can cure you with a speech.

      • Angus Black says:

        I am spending too much time here, but just this one and I will pack it in.

        You CANNOT use the word ‘Freedom’ and ‘Mintoff’ in the same sentence, no shame no gain.

        Freedom is not burning The Times and destroying its presses because it did not agree with his policies.
        Freedom is not shutting down the courts whenever he liked especially when some government case was looking bad.
        Freedom is not denying the NP to have a radio and television station and had to transmit from Sicily.
        Freedom is not barring foreign journalists from reporting about the political scene in Malta.
        Freedom is not denying or restricting the number of secondary students from entering university.
        Freedom is not harassing Nationalist supporters when attending meetings even when all permits were issued.
        Freedom is not allowing Labour Party thugs to invade and destroy private property.
        Freedom is not failing to renew an agreement with Britain but sell the country to a fellow dictator by the name of Gaddafi.

        Liberty is not requisitioning, without compensation, private property for ‘government projects’ only to be converted to Labour Party clubs.

        The list is too long to continue, but if this government had the guts, it would freeze all of Mintoff’s assets and bank accounts and do justice with those who are still holding empty bags since their property was stolen so many years ago and whose shares in banks were seized without compensation in the National Bank rape.

        For God’s sake! Mintoff didn’t give ”freedom” to the Maltese, the English left, do you understand? LEFT! And what did that ”Traitor” as he was one, do? He went crawling to the scum of the earth Gaddafi begging for money!

        Either you’re 10 years old, brainwashed or you suffer from dementia.

        The sad bit is that you have a vote and you can use it freely, unlike previous elections with bullies at the polling booths intimidating and threatening voters.

    • Ben Cassar says:

      Enlighten me Daphne please, all of these are the scum of the earth right?! while you sit there all high and mighty wearing a white robe??? it take’s one to know one dear… just hope nothing really bad happens to you or your precious son cause it will be the first time I laugh my ass off at some one’s death!

      [Daphne – Your ignorance knows no bounds. ‘My precious son’. You don’t even know I have three. I suppose you imagine that the ‘tifel ta’ Defni’ discussions on your scum sites are all about the same one. White robe? No, actually it’s striped.]

      • Ben Cassar says:

        Unlike you, I’m not a busy body so honestly no, I didn’t know you had three, more probability for you to worry about their health I guess… Not that I wish you ill, but surely I won’t shed a tear, well maybe a joyful one. I hope you’r wearing a wonder bra under that striped robe, don’t wan’t you tangling up in your breasts while walking :p thank god for ‘Defni’ !!

        [Daphne – You don’t have to be a busybody to know I have three sons, Ben. I’ve had them since I began writing 23 years ago and I’ve never kept them a secret. So when your favourite sites mention sons with different names, identities and ages, and get them all confused, what do think, exactly? And when they publish photographs of a dark son and then a blond one, what do you register: il-lallu kemm tbiddel? That’s right, you don’t think. You vote Labour. Mohhkom ta’ tigiega b’xi breakdown.]

      • Ben Cassar says:

        Well ‘Defni’ I believe this turned out to be my favourite site after all… I never heard of your sons simply cause I don’t follow or better, your personal life doesn’t interest me. Me Voting Labour: wrong again! I vote to whom I see fit in getting my vote. Daphne I will always defend your right to say whatever you wish, but that doesn’t mean that I have to agree with you or that I’m not entitled to insult you back when you insulted half of Malta, You have every right to do that but so can I. By all means continue I find you very entertaining!

      • Ben Cassar says:

        according to your own judgment, EFA is a ‘mohh ta tigiega’ right?

        “M’hemmx dubju li ħalla impatt fil-pajjiż, partikolarment wara l-gwerra. Kien personalità li ta kontribut… jiena ngħid li ‘overall’ kien kontribut pożittiv. Naturalment kellu l-element negattiv ta’ kif kien jaħdem. Però kien bniedem li kien jaf x’qiegħed jagħmel u jaf xi jrid u dak li jrid kien jagħmel minn kollox biex jilħqu,”

  143. no shame no gain says:

    clearly Daphne, you want to shock, so your name gets mentioned. It is was a known fact that you would not have been in mourning, when Mintoff passed.
    For some Mintoff was the man that brought them hope when they were desperate, who gave them social services to survive since they were not born into well off families, as not everybody could get education. And for that person that wrote he wanted the catholic schools to close, no that is not what he wanted, he wanted them to still teach, but without a fee. He knew that educating everyone would be the way out of poverty and they way for Malta to flourish. And that it was an injustice that only the “rich”could get educated.
    I do not like people that write swear words and that loose it while typing a response.
    But to write that the islands are full of idiots is very disrespectful, to your own countrymen and women. Idiots are everywhere. And clearly you are one of them, as if you had some sense you would not have posted this article to create hate, once again!
    The past is past, maybe you and your lot did not agree with his way of politics, because it interfered with your way of life negatively.But it was not directed at you, your family or other families in your class, it was directed to lift the people that needed a hand. Most of the things he did was to help Malta and its people to live a proper life where no one had to go without anymore, be it food, education etc.
    I come from a labourist family. But my parents worked hard to BUY a plot of land, and build their house. they did not get free plots, as my parents always believed that if with hard work they can do it, they did not need to ask for a free plot that could go to someone really in need. So i do not come from a family of idiots, i come from a family, that thought me integrity, honesty and working hard. but most of all they thought me to be proud of where I come from. A beautiful island, that stood on its own two feet, all because of this man, Dom. Go ahead now and tell me I was brainwashed. I was not. I can know make a different decision, as i am an adult and know the history of politics. But I know that Mintoff was so proud of his country that he fought for it. Its a shame that all this mud keeps being flung on his name. And its a shame no one is fighting for our country anymore, as everything is being sold to foreigners. Just recognise the good things he did. Afterall, those times both parties had a lot to answer for, if I recall, even an amount of guns was found at the PN headquarters.
    So, instead of writing about him, why dont you start writing about things that really matter, find a good cause that needs attention in Malta, and make light on it. You know a lot of people read your blog, you know with your writing you can create awareness. Find a cause, and write about it with the same passion as you did about this man and the mintoffjani. Find an injustice, and create the same hype you did with this article. And do not stop until you get a positive change, instead of wasting your time on the past. You can start by inspiring people to love their country and take care of it. Create something that is of benefit, and not something that bring the worst out of people from both sides.

    • Mark Sciberras says:

      Could not agree more! Prosit for your words. But with Daphne they are wasted. I have have never seen a journalist, whose articles I once recall reading with pleasure, plumb such depths.

    • Ben Cassar says:

      well said, very well said, but, should we be amused that you wrote such words, cause according to DCG we’r all idiots!

      [Daphne – Oh, not according to me, Ben. It’s undisputed fact. Just look at all the evidence laid out here. Not only idiots, but violent, vulgar idiots, the worst sort. You know, the kind who in Mafia mob films are called ‘tools’.]

      • Ben Cassar says:

        Hoooo Daphne, most people curse you, I just thank God you exist! Now that Charlie Sheen is not doing Two and a half man any more, I found the substitute of a great (maybe your even better) comedian….

  145. Simone says:

    Daphne, wow – and here I was, thinking how subdued your article was! You definitely hit a nerve for some people. This is the kind of hatred and vengeance that many of us had to grow up with in the 70s and 80s.

    • Rob79 says:

      Unlike what she says, this bickering between two tribes is what kept this so far behind. That hatred and vengeance is what many nations had to grow up with in the 70’s and 80’s. Mainly by leftists. The ones one the right have been doing it from the dawn of civilization.

  146. Mark Sciberras says:

    I am re-reading your post and reading the comments it provoked (looking for mine too, by the way…not printed yet…..damn!) So tell us …..was it worth it?

    [Daphne – Yes. You idiots fall for it every time. I say half a word about your bastard idol and you come out in force like a horde of dyslexic savages with your death threats and your vulgarity and your pure and utter stupidity.]

    Your blog was full of hate and it has provoked hate and vulgarity in return. In a way, you are deserving of sincere congratulations. It is not easy to have taken the decision to descend to the lowest common denominator of humanity and then wallow in the sewage there, feeding off insults, name calling and the regurgitation of bitter memory and jaundiced history, especially when you have had the benefits of a good education and enjoy what I understand to be a life not lacking in material comforts, beautiful house and all. It would be sad, of course, if you ended up speaking the same way (different words, different language, but very much the same way! Truly congrats!) and thinking the same way as the hamalli mintoffjani you cannot stomach without intending to………This is just provocation to have some sordid fun with the ripostes in your own little space right???? But seriously, and to end on a serious note……..you are repulsive beyond words. Good night hon. I have a feeling it’s been a long time since your putrid living corpse has had a cuddle…..hope that arse-whipped husband of yours is getting his elsewhere.

    • Mark Sciberras says:

      He was no idol of mine hon, and I never threatened you and never would. We are all being entertained here, and my guess is that the more intelligent of us – you are not in our select group, sadly – are being entertained more than others. It is mildly entertaining, after a while, I suppose, to see a once formidable journalist and columnist lose all credibility and plumb the depths, and then decide to live there. You may as well leave your house and take up residence in an Armier boathouse hon, playing the bingo. It’s what you have become.

      [Daphne – There’s a man with a three 100s on his Form II report who might wish to join your select group of more intelligent people. His number is 9998 8877. Give him a ring because he seems a bit down right now.]

      • Drattax says:

        Daphne, some say you have ‘balls’. May I just ask you to prove this? You gave Franco’s private mobile number in a sad and puerile attempt to get at him in some warped way of yours. May you kindly publish YOUR mobile number and ANSWER it?

        [Daphne – My mobile number is public and has always been: 9949 3545. If you want to waste money ringing me, go right ahead. Just bear in mind that I have a two-decade back story in dealing with cranks and obscene callers, so I’m not exactly going to be upset, impressed or intimidated.]

      • Drattax says:

        Thanks for obliging. But I meant your PRIVATE mobile number not the one rigged to the PM’s office and his ‘advisors’.

        [Daphne – That’s my only mobile number. I’ve had it for almost 20 years.]

    [Daphne – They don’t follow my blog. They’ve never read anything I’ve written and they haven’t a clue who I am. One of them actually thought I am a member of parliament. They just come in through Facebook links.]

    Surely they never had it so good under his totalitarian and oppressive rule. Who knows how eager they are awaiting Joseph to oblige in a similar fashion.

    C’mon lads… You can’t all be that stupid and not realize she’s playing you all like a fiddle for ratings and click counts?

    As for Dom, never was a fan of the man when he was alive, but politics sure were interesting when he was.

    And Daph, the quality HAS been slipping of late…

    [Daphne – Oh, I’m not doing it for ratings and click counts. I’m doing it because the best way to whip a mask off people is to talk them into doing it themselves. I don’t need Mintoff for page views. He’s transient.]

    • Natalie says:

      Believe me, she doesn’t need Mintoff’s death to bring up the site’s ratings. People read the blog for its great information value, superb journalism and of course, a good laugh.

      Great article and even better comments. Keep the insults coming, get them off your chests.

      However, I would like to read more reminiscences (wait, that’s too difficult for these dim-wits), I mean more personal memories of Mintoff. Should be interesting.

  162. Joseph Micallef says:

    @ Daphne I am not yet sure what runs through your disturbed mind/head. Whether you have any conscience, love, respect, any sort of human feeling towards anybody or anything! Sometimes I wonder whether you have received any yourself throughout your life!

    I simply see you as a total psychopath who is struggling to show the world the hatered you have for the ones around you simply because you have not yet fullfilled your dreams or achieved what you have long waited for.

    I would be ashamaed of myself, in these days, in such a civilised community, to write such aricles. Having said that I am not ashamed to openly express my opinion agianst you (or anyone who supports you)! I hope that sometime you realise that the world will definetley be a better place, certainly not through the passing away of a political leader (whoever he may be)! It will be a better place if people like you never existed or were not given the right to utter any word, betterso write down whatever goes through their sick minds!

    Hope God has mercy on your soul when the day comes – unlike most people who read your blogs!

    And finally, may Dom Mintoff rest in peace – at the end of the day, good or bad, he was a human being like the rest of us and throughout his life he struggled to give the working class a better life! So sorry that, unfrotunately, I can see no struggle from your side for anyone in Malta to get a better chance of life!

    WOW. Daphne I don’t care much for politics, and maybe I should. But when I heard of this article I just had to come and read it. I must say, I found you to be rather….help me out here, you’re the expert….what’s the opposite of classy?

    You’ve expressed your hatred for Mintoff in such a way that makes you look no better than him with all the horrible things he did. You hate him for his alleged cruelty towards the people, and people hate you for your cruelty too. The way I see it, you’re on the same level as him hun, just not ruling a country, and not influencing people much except for correcting their grammar here and there in response to their feedback. Feel free to correct mine too, if it makes you feel better about yourself.

    The man just died for chrissake. People in mourning. Whether you agree to their mourning or not, have some respect. It doesn’t take much.

Gvernijiet Nazzjonalisti stess li setaw jigvernaw minn 1987 l-hawn ghax wara l-kontroversja tan-1981 Mimtoff stess hass il htiega li tinbiddel il-kostutzjoni ta’ pajjizna biex vera jkun jista jitla l-Gvern li maggioranza tal-Poplu. Kieku kellu il- kilba ghal poter li jkun dittatur bhal ma kien Gaddafi seta halla kollox kif kien u jibqa jigverna bis- siggijiet ghall- ghomru.

  181. Mark says:

    Hi Daphne,

    qatt harist fil-mera int?!!!! Li tikteb b’dil-mibeghda kollha u tipprovoka lin-nies b’dan il-mod huwa tal-misthija. Kont perswaz li inti mara bla qalb, hadra u vjolenti; ir-ragel tieghek wiehed li daq il-hdura u l-iskizofrenija ta mohhok. Mintoff kien dak il-bniedem li lill-klassi l-baxxa gabha fuq saqajha. Insaqsik is-servizzi socjali li dahhal Mintoff inti rrifjutajthom ghax dahhalhom hu, jew dejjem ftaht idejk ghalihom? F’dawn il-25 sena ta gvern nazzjonalista il-bonus ghola, s-sick leave zdied? Il-leave flok zdied naqas. Kull kumpanija li holoq Mintoff biex tkun taghna l-Maltin, il-gvern tieghek bieghha biex ilaqqat ftit tal-flus. Barra minn hekk il-gvern tieghek dejjem ivvota kontra kull tip ta’ beneficcji ghaz-zghir. Hag’ohra kieku ma kienx Mintoff u haseb fikom in-nisa int lanqas vot ma kienu jtuk.

    Nammetti wkoll li Mintoff kellu l-hazin tieghu imma min m’ghandux?!!! Fl-ahhar snin tilef il-kontroll tal-klikka, ta’ shabu u tal-partit bhal ma fl-ahhar mill-ahhar tilfu l-leader tal-partit tieghek ghax hlief korruzzjoni u moqzizijiet mhux qed johorgu fil-berah.

    U nixtieq nghid lil dawk li qalu li mitulhom xi qraba taghhom minhabba l-istat hazin tal-isptar fi zmien Mintoff; jien missieri miet Mater Dei u l-professur tieghu Mr Zammit ma setax jikkurah fl-isptar state of the art li niftahru bih ghax ma geddewlux il-kuntratt.

    Grazzi ja sahhara tal-bidnija li tajtni c-cans nesprimi l-hsibijiet tieghu u tinsiex li l-hajja qisha rota llum jien u ghada int. Qatt m’ghandek tiehu gost bid-deni ta’ haddiehor.

      Mark, il-hazin ta’ Mintoff ma bediex lejn l-ahhar snin meta “tilef il-kontroll tal-klikka”. Beda hafna u hafna snin qabel. Zmien twil ilu xandar mal-erbat irjieh li Boffa wettaq incest meta raqad ma’ bintu stess; gidba sfaccata naturalment. Jien bniedem hekk viljakk insejjahlu. U int?

    It seems that the PL now have an electoral situation on their hands (which potential has always been there, but now there has been an historical moment for its expression): if the PL leaders and their followers accentuate their continuing idolatry with the same momument of emotion evident here, the rational voter will have only one choice.

    Well, the best thing about Mintoff’s passing is that you MIGHT stop flapping your gums about him every 2 bloody seconds.

May he (and our ears) finally rest in peace.

  189. John Falzon says:

    In 1983, I was in my early thirties and looking forward to a life and future in Malta.

    Life in Malta was full of hatred, lack of freedom, corruption, not to mention full control on imports and all business. That was Dom Mintoff’s Malta and so together with a young family, I migrated to Australia.

    Dom Mintoff, me and my family will always be indebted to you. Life has never been so good. Thank you, Mintoff.

  191. Reuben David Spiteri says:

    A few points I’d like to share:

    1. I am 25 years old, and therefore I didn’t live under his thumb, so I might not know exactly what transpired during the Mintoffian times. My parents did however, and don’t think too highly of him either.

    2. I know that just because someone (or his supporters, devotees, etc) are vulgar and wish death left, right, and centre, that doesn’t mean you should, as you’d be lowering yourself to their level and show lack of self-discipline.

    3. Am I glad he’s dead? Well to be frank I never cared for him in the first place, so while I may not go “Glory, Glory” like you do in utter bad taste, I’m not going to flood forums, blogs, facebook with images of the ‘saint’ and go “RIP, RIP, OH GOD RIP TAKE ME WITH YOU”.

    In conclusion: It’s a human life that has ended. Respect it for what it is.

  192. Joe says:

    Most of the published comments really expose Mintoff’s legacy. May the country starts to find closure (possibly after the other incompetent idiot ‘Zero’ joins his mentor?)

    On a different note, Happy Birthday Daphne!

  193. R.J. Grech says:

    I’ve always respected both parties and to be perfectly honest, I’ve never been biased on neither, They all had some tremendously talented people which in some point or other in history have provided some good deed,however, I was never into Mintoff’s politics or idealism as I had not lived in those times, therefore , I can’t judge. As much as I support our freedom’s and posts like this prove that we are a free country without the need of being prosecuted for practicing our freedoms and sadly, as much as I’d appreciate someone who practices freedom of speech in such situations, regarding a conspiracy or a similar event which took place in a nation’s history, I resent the purpose of this post, the way I see it, it’s a direct insult to a dead man, whatever he has done, his sins are either forgiven or being paid for now, there is no reason to smite those mourning him more-so than the pain they are feeling about his rite towards wherever he is going. I am not angry but I am very disappointed because I disprove of disrespect, you have every right to post things like this, in fact most of your posts actually make sense, but in this case, posting against a man which can’t fight your argument himself is null and therefore a void show of interpretation of his character, Very disappointed indeed.

  197. Cliveb says:

    Malta is a better place without Mintoff.

    Unfortunately, he did so much damage to the social structure and mentality in our country that the repercussions will be felt for a long time – as evidenced by the slew of comments posted above by people who are not only functionally illiterate, but display a total disregard for the concept of freedom of speech and association.

    You can threaten Daphne and the rest of us all you like, but you won’t stop us from saying what we think – that Mintoff was a monster, just like all other tin-pot dictators which the human race has been saddled with from day one.

  198. Independent says:

    Ghax ma tmurx tiehdu f ghox kemm ghandek; la tmut int nigi inbul fuq il-qabar tieghek. Inti bid dwejjaq l ghandek zgur li qatt mhu ha ssib il paci. nahseb int sejra il-genna.

  199. Why all this hatred? says:

    On both sides hatred has ruled, bitterness is supreme and we are the lesser mortals. Many like me did not agree with Mintoff’s govenance, and we did suffer because of this. But inspite of all this, I can assure you that we daily prayed earnestly, especially at the Eucharist, that in His Infinite Love and Mercy , Jesus would personally assist Dom Mintoff before entering eternity. We have all sinned before God, no exception. Daphne, you are bitter because you have been hurt but you are not the only one, and if you decide to forgive, you will be not only a greater woman, but a serene soul. Forgiveness is a decision, not an emotion and will give you peace. The greatest battle to win is to win over your will.
    Forgiveness.

    Did you ever expect Daphne to write something in favour of Mintoff? i never did. The first thing I did when I got to know that Mintoff died was to check this blog to find someone with the same sense of humour.

    I do not wish him to rot in hell, that decision is purely God’s to make.

    • Angus Black says:

      My English may not be perfect, my Maltese a tad less, but reading all the above (and below) I have a pretty good idea where all the hate and foul language is coming from.

      Having an opinion on a man who had personally caused many individuals to go through hell simply because they did not agree with his excesses and abuse of power, is, after all an individual’s right.

      Now, mark my words, this coming Saturday, he will be eulogized as if he were a saint.

      It is this hypocrisy which is routinely practiced here and everywhere else which people in the know hate and causes their stomachs to churn and to the point of throwing up.

      The Archbishop had better measure his words since One TV guru, Illum, l-orizzont and Malta Today will be out in full analysis of his eulogy.
      Mintoff never reconciled with his fellow citizens but we hope that he reconciled with his Maker before he was called.

  209. Raphael Dingli says:

    You have sent out a big hook today and boy how everyone has bitten. Well done. Congratulations.

    The reality is that your comments put you in the same league as those who you hate and despsie so much. You have fallen to the depths of depravity.

    Methinks you have done it just for fun – which makes it worse. Your arguments about sociopaths, hamalli, uneducated, crass, naff, scum of the earth, vulgarity, pure and utter stupidity etc etc etc can now be clearly directed towards you.

    Today you have just provided all of the evidence required for this. Your infamy and gall is unmatched – you must laughing your head off. This “fun” I note will most likely continue to contribute towards your income stream as I suspect there may be two ads on this website in the coming weeks and months.

    For all the people bashing Daphne, I see nothing wrong with what she wrote as it is the truth, but even if it wasn’t, I am sure you were not the first ones in line to stand up for other people (read Nazzjonalisti) who were treated like dirt during Mintoff years and given a beating (or two).

    I’m sure you didn’t as most of you still actually applaud these things so do away with the two weights to measures thing and shut up.

    Mintoff was no saint.

    All those using foul, vulgar language, thank you for showing us your true colours. It is actually quite possible to make your point using perfectly good English/Maltese – but no I forgot, inthom mhux hekk imdorrijin.

  220. Teriza CT says:

    Incredible but so true, to actually feel overwhelmed to celebrate someone’s death, is bizarre.
    But hell yes…

    The Dark Lord has succumbed…FINALLY

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAPHNE!

  221. Demel says:

    Jekk kulħadd se jtiha xebgħa Joseph ħa jsib il-kaxxa ta’ Malta mimlija, bis-€60 li kulħadd se jħallas. Ser tiġi, xebgħa ntaxxata.

  222. BZ says:

    I’m Nationalist, and yet I think you’re being the biggest bitch ever to set her feet on this earth. Yes maybe he wasn’t the most decent man, but still, why say these things once he is dead? Go say them to his face fine, but don’t defile a person’s name once they are dead. One day you’ll be going to hell and people will be saying this crap against you. Would you like that?

  223. ciccio says:

    Good on you, Daphne. Show the Mintoffjani for what they are. And for what they will be after 2013.

    Mintoff thrived on hatred and division, not on the unity of the nation.

    This hatred has resurfaced in recent years, as Joseph Muscat started to bring back the Mintoffjani to the front, undoing the attempts made by Alfred Sant to disassociate the party from those elements.

    By the way, has Super One asked Alfred Sant for his reaction to Mintoff’s death as yet?

  224. *1981* says:

    it seems that swearing is all they can do. Wow. and telling you they will beat you up etc.

    Just shows how the Labour mentality will never change. Do or say something they don’t like and it’s back to the only thing they know: violence and threats and abuse.

    Anyway, Daphne, today ( I have followed your writing for years), you have not failed to show that you will say what you please and for me that is just great. If they don’t bloody like it, they don’t bloody read it.

    Mara bil-bajd (ghax hekk jifhmu zgur).

    Another thing, since when do people who die suddenly become saints? I can’t stand this crap.

    Will all you people please stop worrying about Mintoff. He doesn’t and never needed you people to defend him. And he held you in contempt,.

    I’m sure he’s having his last laugh in good company at the moment, knowing that even after he’s dead he has managed to divide Malta and show the true face of Labour – Violent and ignorant. Just like he liked them, so he could rule as he pleased.

  231. Pipps says:

    Daphne, the vast majority of the nation including the more sober Labour supporters agree with your assessment of this man’s horrendous politics and the misery he caused to most of us during his premiership.

    He destroyed lives and nurtured class hatred which still abounds even today.

    Sadly yes, he can be likened to other despots such as Hitler and Mussolini e bella compania.

    Thank you Daphne for your gutsy reporting, your objectivity and for always telling it like it is.

    As to the idiots above, apart from the fact that it’s patently obvious that many of the vile comments come from the same source, did anyone really expect anything different ? Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.

    • mintoffjan says:

  232. Christina ZLR says:

    Wow! Hats off to the Labourites! I must admit that Daphne might have been some what inappropriate, however she was never rude.

    Not only have most of you posted rude comments but you have also resorted to being vulgar and seemingly uneducated.

    Mintoff might have increased Malta’s wealth, but he was also a tyrant who forced the hand of many.

    For those of you who wish to grieve this day – go ahead and do so, but do not judge those who wish to remember this day for different reasons.

  233. Nadya Cassar Bonaci says:

    Hi Daphne,

    I replied to your statement about me in your notebook.

    I do not have to repeat it here.

    A person just died and you cant write about him in that way..whoever he was.

    If you are a Christian, you should leave certain things out of your blog.
    Do not try to make money out of controversies..we have enough of them on this island.

    You are always mentioning me..even in Dr. Karmenu Bonnici’s time. I am just a miserable woman.

    One thing I would like to tell you again.
    Do remember that hatred breeds hatred and you have children who I am sure see what you are writing.
    When you are not here , who is going to defend them if in the near future they might encounter difficulties.

    I will end up by telling you,

    Dear Dom May you Rest In Peace ..yes and I cried for him.

    Like I cried For Mrs. Fenech Adami. You cannot keep away people from this. Espescially when those who mourn are mourning great persons. You cannot take that away from the.

  237. Joseph says:

    Daphne

    I usually see – but do not write – today is an exception.

    You think you own a lot. You think by deliberate hurtful comments such as this, you gain attention. AND indeed you do. However, it is very sad, so sad to see that this is the only way you can (and do) get attraction. It would be better off, if you can do something good for a change. Oh, sorry – you don’t know what Good is. It’s not in your character. I am sorry for you. What a pity. I hope Relatives of the deceased do not give you much attention.

    (Not best) Regards

    Dear Daphne, I understand your hate, frustration and anger but they will lead you to nowhere.

    This is the ugliest piece of crap I ever read in my career…

    it is not only about Don Mintoff but is more about your personality. if these are your daily thoughts I just can’t imagine how dark your dreams are.
    Help is what you need!

  240. Yeah right says:

    Ms CG,

    Here’s what I like about you: you understand the typical Laburist so well, and you can truly push his or her buttons.

    Ghax dawn il-progressivi u moderati titfghalhom il-lixka li tikxef x’inhuma vera u jidhlu ghaliha bhal gemgha imzazen.

    What I really love about their reactions is that they truly miss the irony and contradiction.

    They accuse you of being full of hatred, in between the ja ******, mur hudu *******, li ma kontx ******.

    [Daphne – They say and write ‘aaaa’ not ‘ja’. You have to get the terminology right.]

    Man, aren’t these people a social psychologist’s wet dream.

    • mintoffjan says:

      mela i write ja liba tal kukkudrili ja mara kerha

      [Daphne – Kemm jiffaxxinakom il-liba, God bless. Mohhkom biss fih.]

  241. Adrian says:

    I augur that you, Daphne, continue to live as long as your destiny precludes. In the meantime I thank the same destiny that permitted us Maltese to be led by the greatest politician, as yet, that these islands have seen. Thanks to Dom Mintoff, today we can take for granted the social benefits that we now have. The same social benefits that you can rely upon should destiny decide that your presence in this world is worth the while. Destiny, alas, is not me. Otherwise you would have been obliterated already.

    P.S. make up your mind…. Either the saints go marching out (in heaven) or else may he rot in hell. Diametrically opposed!

  242. Keith Vassallo says:

    Seriously Daphne? Seriously?

    I’ve always thought all the hate you got was from hardline PL brainwashed plebeians.

    Today I realise they’re right. That’s the last time I read this piece of shit.

  243. Glen Rund says:

    Dear Daphne

    There is journalism and there is rhetoric propaganda. Unfortunately you often venture too close to the latter. Still every man and woman has a right to his opinion and I believe the days where people can be swayed blindfolded by the agendas of people like yourself are gradually coming to an end.

    I definitely don’t agree with many things Don Mintoff has done most notably the allowing of waves violence that gripped Malta at one point. This, in my opinion, is the major reason the present administration has remained in power for so long. However diversifying an economy that was crippled by the absence of any developments from our previous colonialists is no mean feat. The separation of duties from church and state has proven to be the right path irrespective of one’s religious beliefs. Fantasying a utopia under an alternative past leadership is a bad choice of time management.

    I most certainly didn’t expect you to come out sobbing tears of sorrow but your words are akin to spitting on a man’s grave. This I find disturbing even by somebody of such despicable character. Any decent human being would agree to disagree and let bygones be bygones. If your motivation is driven by sensationalism and a move to further prop-up a Nationalist administration plagued by cancer, I’m afraid your article has backfired.

    I just wonder what will happen the day you pass away.

    • Jozef says:

      Utter rubbish.

      It’s in order and necessary to disrupt the current bullshit.

      He never sought to minimise the iconography built around him, leaving half the population yearning for a clone.

      Someone obliged.

  244. GSD says:

    Finally – an opinion about the old bastard which I agree with! Thanks Daph!

  245. Drattax says:

    I would only like to say one thing about this excuse for a sad creature who spits bile on bandwidth. I would be VERY surprised were she to still be in a position to colour this bandwidth and some other excuse as ‘newsprint’ when her backers and protectors lose their grip on power.

    [Daphne – Exactly what are you saying here, Drattax? That you will be voting for a government in the hope that it does to me what China did to Ai Wei Wei? Are you mad, or just another effing unbelievably stupid Labour voter? Life outside China is wasted on people like you. What protectors? You don’t need protectors to write your opinions on the internet, though I’ll admit that some people probably think I need the police right now, but to protect me from lunatics like all those commenting here. And you don’t need backers to run a blog. That’s the whole point.]

    • Drattax says:

      That’s it, you got the point. I just hope that you don’t get the ‘butterflies-in-your-stomach’ feeling waiting for that day. I was a Nationalist voter but I will not waste my vote to prolong immunity to low-life creatures like you.

    Cin Cin , let’s celebrate and many happy returns of the day to you, dear Daphne. You are an inspiration to hundreds of your blog readers who share the same sentiments.

  255. These comments are somewhere between pathetic and hilarious. Mostly pathetic though. I wish I could say I had no idea there were so many people who had the mental faculties of a retarded rock; but unfortunately I knew exactly what to expect.

    You are completely entitled to say whatever you want in your blog, just as they are entitled to play with a keyboard and call it writing.

    [Daphne – These are not arguments, anon, which is why I don’t bother with them. Condescension? Perhaps you think I should treat these people as my equals. They are clearly not and they know it, which is the root cause of their malice and frustration. Grammar is my particular interest.]

    • Anon says:

      Perhaps then you should write a book. At least explain your frustration in a more organised and coherent manner. Your blogs are full of bullshit and you know it. Karma is a bitch, so be prepared.

  261. Kevin Wain says:

    Daphne. I will begin by saying that I am no fan of Mintoff and, yes, I do agree with you that Mintoff and the person next to him in the photo (Lorry Sant) have done some terrible things when they were in power. There are those (many of them) who have suffered a lot under Mintoff, but there were also those who gained in social services and benefits which were inexistent before Mintoff became prime minister. These people (those who were brought out of poverty) will be hurt by what you are saying here and grateful to Mintoff for what he has done for them. I believe that some sensitivity wll always help when a person, who has raised much controversy, but who is much loved by many dies. Besides, it is wrong for you to write in such an abraisive style.
    To be honest, nor am I impressed politically by his daughter, but this gives me no right to attack her in manner you have chosen to here. A balanced analysis/avaluation would have been more appropriate at this point. You must also be aware of the fact that attacking Mintoff’s chidren is useless and wrong to say the least. They are passing through sad times. He was their father after all. We should learn from the pass mistakes especially those of Mintoff at these times, without having to be vindictive.

    [Daphne – I don’t give a monkey’s cuss in hell if they are “passing through sad times”, just as they didn’t give a cuss in hell and lived as far away as possible when their bastard father made other people’s lives a misery back home in Malta. Passing through sad times? Why, because a man they despised in life because he made their mother miserable and who they avoided for so long has died aged 96, leaving them so much money that they never have to worry about it again? Give it a rest. It is no surprise to discover that those who know least about Mintoff are those who support him most.]

    • S.H. says:

      Oh that’s yet another can of worms… money.

      Daphne, you would know better than I do, but isn’t he one of the richest people in Europe?

      I don’t need to go into the how and where he managed to pocket so much money now, do I?

    • mintoffjan says:

      fuck you daphne you fuckinggggggg bastard i wish that one day you will be fucked in your ass by a big black cock

      [Daphne – I thought we’d end up there before long. I can’t help but suspect that when men say exactly those words to a woman, it’s because they rather fancy some of that themselves, but can’t confront the knowledge.]

  262. Paul Bonnici says:

    Daphne, are you joining Dr Alfred Sant in the celebrations?

  263. bookworm says:

    I propose the 20th of August to be declared the true ‘Jum il-Helsien’.

  264. MxC says:

    I think the main bad here was the form of presentation of the content, rather than the content itself. For even in freedom of speech, there is something called human decency. And just because he didn’t have any it doesn’t mean one should go down to his level. Rather than reading on what the saints and you would be doing, I’d rather have read what he did as further support to your point. Just a few suggestions on what to write next time another political celebrity dies.

    [Daphne – The Maltese disease, the result of a society developing among hundreds of thousands of people squashed together on a rock 17 miles by nine, and another, even smaller, rock. Spare me your views. I have had a lifetime to consider them and I’m still having none of it. What you are talking about is not ‘basic human decency’, but the survival instinct kicking in.]

    RIP

    [Daphne – Miss Free, I despise Mintoff not only for I and those around me had to endure, but for what he did to the country. In 16 years, he made it one of the most miserable places in Europe, and with half of Europe behind the Iron Curtain at the time, that’s saying something. I despise him because nobody will ever give us back that lost time. It’s easy for those who came afterwards and who were raised in the luxurious heaven – by comparison – of the last 25 years to rewrite history and look back and praise that terrible man, but they speak from a position of great privilege that was denied my generation. So it is not for them to speak. It is for us to speak.]

      That’s to show the count of how many people hate you

      • Angus Black says:

        It also reveals how many follow her blog. Many of the ones who admire her guts are simply relaxing and pitying the ignorance of Labour followers, mostly like Joseph, dedicated Mintoffjani who know nothing better than writing death threats and using gutter language which they are so accustomed to.

        Why are you checking Daphne’s blog, anyway? You have The Times, l-orizzont, Illum, Maltastar, Malta Today and the Progressive Labour Party electronic sites to unload your bile on.

      Daphne gismu miet biss, l-ispirtu socjalista li bena Mimtoff ghadu haj u jibqa haj ghal dejjem. Isem Mimtoff ha jibqa jisemma hawm Malta sa tmiem id-dinja.

      Pero dan inti tafu u b’hekk qed taghmel dan li qed taghmel fuq dan il-blog ghax taf li ghalkemm gismu miet hu xorta wahda ha jibqa madwarna ghax kull fejn thares tista tghid li dan bis-sahha tieghu li beda kollox.

      Tghid li ghal grazzja ta Alla min hu zaghzugh bhali twelidt fil gena ta’ l-art ghax dejjem kont taht gvern Nazzjonalista. Il-genna ta’ l-art skond inti li jkollok delizzju u li hu anki tradizzjoni Malta li tigi michud li tghamlu ghax fil grupp li thalna u jigu jaqaw u jqumu minna. Genna ta’ l-art li biex tixtri fejn toqod trid tissallab ghal ghomrok. Fi zmiem il-Perit kien hawm tbatija u nghidlek tbatija imma bi ftit sagrificcji kont issir nies. Illum biex issir nies trid vera tmissek ix-xorti jew inkella taghmel xi haga llegalli.

    Dear Daphne

    Believe me many Maltese hate you for being blunt and for speaking out your mind( fact) but just bear in mind that there is at least one (me) who agrees with you all the way.

    The hatred that Mintoff has injected in many is still here and can be seen in a lot of comments. He lived a sad, horrible life. He loved the Maltese so much that he wanted to integrate them to another completely different country.

    This man who was so convinced that integration was so goo came about to even go against this project with so much force that whoever mentioned the word Britain would be turned into a hate figure.

    Mintoff was a ‘pinnur’ and when he did all the 360% he realised that he had no direction but to retreat into his own messy shell.

    Whenever someone came out with a bright idea he declared cynically that he was a star (Fenech Adami). Whenever he was challenged with reason he would use force (nigu u inkissrukhom).

    I think all Maltese should heave a sigh of relief that this terrible man is done with and thank God, that we will be spared from the likes of him ever again. Or at least, we hope so.

    The pity is that he did not go down like Robespierre and others like him. The days he ruled were days of terror and I will not mince words. I shall not be goody goody and ask God to give him eternal rest. I will consider that as swearing and making God do a very bad thing.

    Bitch were you living in malta the past 30 years ?? or were you busy sucking dicks

    • Stephen Ganado says:

      That’s the whole point, Dale.

      If you only know what has happened in Malta over the last 30 years, you need to find out what happened BEFORE, when Mintoff was in power.

      His adoring fans are keen to mention the social reforms he introduced – which were being introduced all over Europe at the time, so nothing special there – but they don’t mention the hardship, violence and total lack of rule of law that existed till we finally got rid of him and the PL from government.

      Read your history without blinkers on and then you may start to understand what many of us went through thanks to your beloved Mintoff.

    • Samantha Jones says:

      Is that what you occupy your time with when not living in Malta?

  275. Malti says:

    I have read your article, and all the posts. In a way I was a bit shocked to read what you said, although I strongly believed there is a freedom of speech, but although I am not a Mintoff fan, still I found the comment harsh, could have waited to be posted several days after his funeral at least. I am sorry as well for all the rubbish of comments and bad words of frustration from a lot of other Maltese, if you are angry of what Daphne has said, you have right to comment and say your opinion but leave it clean as she did without offending anyone’s family or wishing you death. I believe a lot in freedom, now that we have it please use it with caution and honesty.

    ps: wrote in English so everyone could read my message, as I saw a lot of posts from foreign countries, not becauce I lost my Maltese language.

    May I express my humble opinion. I really feel saddened by all the comments, pro or against Dom Mintoff, expressed in a very unChristian way. Why can’t we approve or disapprove simply by offering our opinions. I sincerely believe that we can say whatever we wish to say in a much more Christian tone.

  285. Paul Bajada says:

    Daphne,

    You and people of your ilk have a huge challenge indeed ahead. Because the way you are expressing yourself about Mintoff shall not win you paradise! On the contrary, you stand a chance of going to hell too.

    Now how about that for your misery? if you also go to hell and join Mintoff there? Wouldn’t it be awful for you having to endure his company for eternity?

    So why don’t you reflect on your behaviour for once and say a prayer for his soul instead? Jesus forgave his enemies and the ones who killed him. But may be I am expecting too much from an allegedly intelligent person like you!

    I am sorry to say, but you are so short sighted! Or may be you have an agenda in your head! To provoke the PL supporters to do something irregular so that you have something to attack them with! Am I right?

    I do not know whether Mintoff deserves hell or not. Let God decide. I am glad though, that you are not God, otherwise hell is meant only for PL supporters and heaven for the likes of RCC, you, EFA and the rest of the mob!

    you should know better.

I’m a PN Supporter and will not even think of such things, you should be careful what you write. Even our leaders hailed the person and one feel sorry for the loss. I know a friend of mine that when Dr. Demarco died, he told me that he was touched and followed his funeral on TV right till the end. What you are saying of what happened in those times is exactly what you are doing now. You are jeopardizing the PN and we don’t need people like you to put us at a worst position than we are at the moment.

      Do you dare walk in the streets at this moment?

    I wish you a very happy birthday Daphne.How are you going to spend the day? With family and friends I suppose.Can you tell us?You are living in hatred and you can never be happy Can we join? You deserve a very nice present.And by the way ,how old are you?
    Daphne I think that today is a very bad day for you.To write about a great man like Mintoff in that way one must not be in his right senses,and after death! Speak well of your friends and nothing of your enemies.
    You must forgive and forget so that you will be forgiven.If you do not forgive you will have an unhappy life.That is what you show in your blog.What does your husband say?

    [Daphne – My husband feels possibly even more contempt for Mintoff than I do, lola. And that is quite apart from the fact that in the 21st century, wives do not ask their husband’s permission before expressing an opinion.]

    • Paul Bajada says:

      A right given to you by Mintoff, dear Daphne. If your memory plays well, then you can easily recall that under the PN women had not even voting rights, let alone expressing themselves about politics and governments!

      [Daphne – Mintoff did not introduce the vote for women. Learn your history, instead of repeating the rubbish your party winds you up on.]

      But for you what is red is ignorant, what is blue is righteous!

      No one stopped you from celebrating, but showing disrespect towards the people who feel that Mintoff did something useful for them, that is absolutely cruel and wicked! Do you seriously believe that by showing these abnormal emotions of yours you can win any people’s hearts? Something the party you support desperately needs coming elections? Do you seriously think that spitting this venom would change a dime towards Mintoff’s destiny?

      And if your husband feels such contempt for Mintoff, let it be. Everyone has his own demons to bemoan. We had Gonzi and he (like many others) has Mintoff.

    I just want to say thank you for having the guts to write this piece that speaks the truth, and for providing me a week’s supply of entertainment in reading the comments. Unfortunately I must remain anonymous as I don’t have the guts you have.

    awful, shameful and disgusting. Why all these rude and nasty words ? Stop it with ”Ostji” I am not a labourite but now what has been done has been done and we cannot reverse the clock. Yes Mintoff was a great leader and loved his Country very much. He did good things and took great measures in their right directions. On the other hand he did somethings that were lesss good or perhaps even not good at all but errare umanum est. Let us not be WE to judge him as the Lord warns us ” Judge not lest you be judged.” And please both sides STOP POINTING FINGERS. Instead together let’s say a short prayer for him if we are christians. ” Eternal rest grant unto him Oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. Grant him eternal rest dear Lord.

The rest of us know the difference between using the internet to threaten others and using it to express our opinion. Under the law, it’s your friends here who are committing a crime, not me.

    Dephnie, i really respected some of your toughts in the past, but today it seems like you trowed every thing you did in a garbage bag. even hard core nationalist always say Mintoff was a great man, ok he done mistake ( who do not? ) but one can not underastemate what a change he bring to the Maltese People and culture. in all these comment i pretend that the officials in the nationalist Party will deplore againts your article, its out of all means what you wrote in here. how can you talk on a man like this when he made the woman a real human by giving her all the human rights. first of all are you a woman??? if yes! like him or not you must atleast thank hime for this that you have to talk and write your taughts. forget the other things, you are you today thanks to him. if i were you i will apologize with all people and most of all with god for this forbetten sin. i am sorry for you!

    [Daphne – People who respected some of my toughts and think I trowed every thing in a garbage bag would have been incapable of reading anything I’d written or understanding it. So don’t bother pretending. You’re really not convincing.]

    GOOO, DAPHNE!

    Dom Mintoff was a horrible man and despite the few things he might have done which benefited us, we Maltese still went through hell under his reign so good riddance to him.

    we all have our opinions and this is Daphne’s and most Maltese agree, so all you ‘Laburisti’ can take your fucking opinions and threats and keep them to yourselves.

    Maybe it is not nice to ill speak of the dead but I fully admire Daphne for being honest and outspoken and having the courage to say what the majority of the people are thinking deep in their heart.

    Thank God, today we live in a democracy and have freedom of speech not like the bad old Mintoff days where had no freedom at all.

    A lot of people seem to have forgotten what it was like living under Mintoff who sought to control every detail of our lives. And to all those who seem to believe that there is a special place for Dom Mintoff in heaven – come on, are you serious?

    At least Daphne Caruana Galizia had the decency to keep her opinion of Mintoff even after half of Malta is mourning him.

    No big deal, some people are still talking shit about him just like they used to when he was alive. The only difference is that he’s dead now. WOW – dnub mejjet, eh?

    Ghax issa miskin mejjet allura nbiddlu l-opinjoni taghna dwaru u ma nibqghux noffenduh.

      • SERACINA says:

        Dear Daphne

        I am not the type of person who normally follows your blog but today I was intrigued. You managed to glue me to my laptop and read all the comments that you have been receiving.

        My first reaction was that you were way out of line with your harsh words, and still think so, but that is democracy and the freedom of speech. ……. But now as time goes by I am having horrible flashbacks from the70’s and 80’s. This was how it was when I was growing up……….. Labourists and Mintoffjani spreading this type of violence…….. which I really hope my children will never taste in the future.

        Yes Mr. Mintoff started out with great ideas, be it his idea or if someone else started them, but then he changed into a Dictator and I will explain myself so that the young generation can really understand what we went through growing up under this man.

        1. If you wanted to buy the In…..taghna (because that’s what the Nazzjon was called in those days) you were beaten.
        2. If you wanted to have a telephone or television in your home you had to bribe someone.
        3. If you wanted to eat chocolate you could either choose Deserta or Catch.
        4. Sugar and pasta were given out by ration to each family. I remember going to the “Grocer” to take my “Ratal” (equivalent of 800gr) of the week.
        5. If you wanted to go abroad you were only allowed a certain amount of money to take with you whether it was for a week or a month the amount was still the same. If I am not mistaken it was LM25.
        6. If you wanted to buy a colour TV you had to know people who knew people but that was not enough you also had to pay LM100 which in those days were equivalent to a LM1000 because of the wage freeze.
        7. Whether you liked it or not you had to learn Arabic in order to be able to go to Sixth Form.
        8. If you wanted a plot of land for free to build your house all you wanted to do was go to Lorry Sant and you could even choose locality and size. Even if you wanted to become a police officer forget your height or qualifications……… go to Lorry Sant or any other Minister for that matter but Lorry Sant was the all time favourite.

        And the list goes on……….

        That’s what I remember from Mintoff’s days. That is what I remember of my childhood days but there is something I also remember………. whilst I was living through this hell, Mr. Lorry Sant was buying half of M’Scala’s seafront to build his villa with exotic animals such as peacocks, Mr. Moran’s villa resembled Castille with it’s enormosity, whilst my father in those days was driving a beaten up Mini Minor most of the Labourist Ministers owned Mercedeses…………… that was the reality.

        I don’t want to sound mean or disrespectful but those are the memories people my age (be it blue or red) have of Mr. Mintoff and that is why we react that way when his name is mentioned. Most of you were very rude and included vulgarity but you don’t know what it was like unless you experience what we did. For most of you Supermarkets are a normal way of life, we were like imgewhin and the only way to eat good chocolate or pasta was to go to Catania…….. but first you have to either hide what you had or else make friends with Customs Officers so they wouldn’t check your bags and have everything confiscated. Most of you were horrified when Libyans spoke about similar things happening under Gaddaffi’s Regime and that is how it was in our days.

        What you take forgranted nowadays we had to wait for twenty years to achieve………………. so please before attacking Mrs. Caruana Galizia just walk down memory lane with people who lived it and try and imagine yourselves in our shoes.

        I bet you wouldn’t last a day……… let alone 20 years.

  339. Anony Mous says:

    Frankly, I must say that I wasn’t too appalled after reading this article. The reason is simple, I was aware of Daphne’s bitterness towards Dom and her words did not surprise me.

    What definitely horrified me was the crowd’s response.

    Yes, I’m sure you have Dom at heart but honestly some of the comments I’ve read have scarred me for life.

    Half of them include swearing and very thrilling orthography.

    I agree on people answering to threads and sharing thoughts but not in the manner I’ve seen here.

    I’m quite sure everyone has a reason for either liking him or hating his guts. She clearly doesn’t have a reason for liking him, but that’s OK since the world is made up of mixed opinions (thank God).

  340. Backwards country says:

    We really live in a backwards country.

    All you people spewing hate against Daphne saying go to hell f*xx ommok etc etc…I am not a man of god but if I remember correctly, judge lest you not be judged, and love thy neighbor as you love me were pretty important in the Christian dogma.

    But I guess you are all too uneducated to realize what you are doing.

    The saddest thing is that you have a vote that carries the same weight as mine.

    What Daphne did could be called crass and in poor taste but it is not illegal so what you are all doing is just proving her right that you Mintoffjani are all uneducated animals who should be lined up in front of their families and shot.

    • Mark Cachia says:

      if I had Daphne as my neighbour I will surely love the idea to blind fold her, cover her face as I might suffer from a serial of nightmares and shag her. that’s the most I can do otherwise I’d rather have a pig farm next to me as a neighbour rather than having that low life, with no self esteem bitch

      [Daphne – I hate to break it to you, Mark, but if you lived near me, you WOULD have a pig farm as a neighbour. It’s just across the road.]

      • H.P. Baxxter says:

        Interesting. They hate you but they want to have sex with you.

        [Daphne – It’s been like that from day one. The subtext of their violence and hatred is invariably about sex. They don’t realise it themselves and they don’t know that I have the required knowledge to see it. These are people for whom sex, violence and misogyny are intertwined. It’s very ugly out there in Maltese underclass culture.]

      • ciccio says:

        Baxxter, it is why Mintoff liberalised sodomy.

      • Dcg says:

        You make part of the maltese underclass culture

    • Mark Cachia says:

      also from your writing it seems that you’re one hell of an uneducated son of a gun….. wow you’re just saying that all Labour fans are to be lined up and shot….very nice of you. is that the way your leader whisper to you in your ears? aren’t we supposed to have one Prime minister who represents us all. shame on you backward mind you have not a backward country

      • Backwards country says:

        Mr Cachia,

        I was going to be sarcastic in this comment but I am afraid you won’t understand, so I will spell it out to you.

        I do not have a leader. Unlike you i don’t choose a colour and stick with it. I use my brain.

        I never said all Labour people should be lined up and shot, but that uneducated Mintoffjani should be. And that is just a British turn of phrase.

        For their hypocritical comments, and about our country being backwards – well, just look at all the colorful enhancing language they are using in their comments. Just pure class.

  341. Daphne Admirer says:

    Dear Daphne,

    Rest assured that you will never rot in hell as you wished the two gentlemen above, because so many maltese will come ti piss on your grave (ibda minni) that you will not even make it to hell. By the way, I copied this blog so that I can paste it in memoriam to you when you eventually croak and die as your epitaph.

    Good day, may you choke on your next breath.

    • Mark Cachia says:

      you can choose to be sarcastic as much as you like backwards country. As a mater of fact my mind detects sarcastic people and all I do is care less about them. I will surely not get troubled with an idiot saying such a similar phrase about what his wish would dearly be to do to all Mintoffjani(just to exclude the word Labour) but writing similar barbarian stuff will lead you nowhere but to see what kind of low life people you are….. this is exactly like that prick of a local counciler (Julian at Sliema) forgot his surname said about that he do with his Labour employees…giving them less salary…. I give that credit too…. sick twats like you and all those who were so rude in your writings clearly show us what kind of mercenaries you are. would you like to be respected if there was a government change? then show some to get some!!!!!!!

    The biggest bastard calls a real man a bastard ? lol you disgust me daphne.

    [Daphne – In English, ‘bastard’, like ‘cunt’ (also used erroneously elsewhere on this comments-board) is a pejorative term used exclusively for men. I don’t want you to waste your time by popping in here, so I’ll let you go away with some information you didn’t know before.]

  344. Joseph Micallef says:

    @ Daphne I am not yet sure what runs through your disturbed mind/head. Whether you have any conscience, love, respect, any sort of human feeling towards anybody or anything! Sometimes I wonder whether you have received any yourself throughout your life!
    I simply see you as a total psychopath who is struggling to show the world the hatered you have for the ones around you simply because you have not yet fullfilled your dreams or achieved what you have long waited for.
    I would be ashamaed of myself, in these days, in such a civilised community, to write such aricles. Having said that I am not ashamed to openly express my opinion agianst you (or anyone who supports you)! I hope that sometime you realise that the world will definetley be a better place, certainly not through the passing away of a political leader (whoever he may be)! It will be a better place if people like you never existed or were not given the right to utter any word, betterso write down whatever goes through their sick minds!
    Hope God has mercy on your soul when the day comes – unlike most people who read your blogs!
    And finally, may Dom Mintoff rest in peace – at the end of the day, good or bad, he was a human being like the rest of us and throughout his life he struggled to give the working class a better life! So sorry that, unfrotunately, I can see no struggle from your side for anyone in Malta to get a better chance of life!

    I am taking this opportunity to thank all those who showed sympathy with the death of one of the strongest pillars that Malta ever had.

    In the meantime I condemn you Cruella De Ville. Your low life never finish to surprise many people, we all know what your abilities are but nonetheless it seems that you always reign. let me tell you this, you pretend to be classy, but you’re nothing but a piece of dried shit you fucking whore. My only wish is to see the Karma working back to you and see you suffer while your last rites are being told to you. I will be the one of many shitting on your grave.

    I only wonder if you ever were breast fed in your early days, or if your mum sipped venom directly in your mouth. No wonder why are you called the fucking SAHHARA TAL-BIDNIJA you long nosed whore

  350. This goes to you BITCH…!!!

    Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point – that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative, self- value. If you cannot love yourself, you will never believe you are loved (which in your case Ms galizia you are not and will never be loved). You will always think it’s a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. You should be ashamed of yourself you may think that death may not reach you one time or another but the only problem is that when it will reach you only God has to Create hell for you. If you ever decide to respond to this, you don’t have to bother I already know your answer…(we are ignorant, chicken heads and sooooo on) you always say the same old things…you’re soooo damn frustrated bitch. The difference between you and Mintoff is, Mintoff is well known with everyone not only in Malta by all the good he did for our country and for us including you, you say it’s not true but we all know it is true, every single one of us in one way or another is enjoying the good he brought to our country. On the other hand you are going to be well known by everyone infact you already are, for the rudeness etc and for the evil woman you are BITCH but that’s what jealousy brings you to do…That’s the big Difference between you and Mintoff BITCH.

  351. AC says:

    One cannot say that Mintoff did no good, but a lot of bad there was! His biggest mistake was letting Lorry Sant take over, bribes galore. Remember Pio Camilleri and their bella klikka.

    One couldn’t even get a telephone line, colour TV, basic commodities in the shops – the worst was NO water at all. So I must say, I am not sorry he passed away. He should have gone sooner – but perhaps that was his punishment.

    • Paul Bajada says:

      You forgot the Mars chocolate and toothpaste. We really needed those! But Mintoff unfortunately was more interested to get us pensions, schools, women rights to vote, education, minimum wage, free healthcare, employment and housing.

      Of course there are some who abused and also passed away. But look at the present administration. Do you think they are getting fat from tap water?

      get a life!

    • Priscilla says:

      Why, there r no bribes now you think? Pronto! Terra chiama luna! No bella klikka now after 25 years? E.T. go home! Wake up!

So instead she takes out her frustration on a dead man!! She must be so sad!!! We’ll see what an intelligent reply we’ll get back of her…

    [Daphne – ‘She takes out her frustration on a dead man’. Now I’m a necrophiliac but worse than that, one who fancies Mintoff’s corpse.]

    • You must be sick in the head says:

      Yep I knew she’d reply with something that she perceives  as  intelligent but really it’s a pretty damn stupid reply.  Daphne since you brought it up and since you seem to agree with it ‘ you are a Necrophiliac ‘ as you are so obsessed and fascinated with the dead! However if I was you I wouldn’t brag about it as it also means that you have erotic attractions and sexual contact with corpses. Then again I wouldn’t hold it past you, after all we all know that you are one sick puppy !!

    Why is it that all of a sudden Mintoffians have become so mealy-mouthed when commenting about the dead?

  361. it's a spade says:

    Wow, reading some of the comments makes me thank Zeus that I left this country a decade ago.

    It’s ironic that the hate-spewers commenting are a direct legacy of Mintoff’s time; this is what he wanted to create and he managed it brilliantly.

    To think that the same people will probably be in power very soon makes me shudder, just for the fact that my elderly parents are in Malta and live in fear of what will happen.

    What I do find amusing are all the references to ‘hell, devils , lakes of fire’ and so on. Mediaeval superstition still rules with an iron fist in ‘christian’ Malta.

    from your speach i see you hated him and still hate him very much,well im realy looking foward to see what he done to you and your near 1.

    • Angus Black says:

      When you ask, ” what have mintoff ever done to you??”, you have to address it in plural – to ALL of Malta who lived in his era. The difference is that half were brainwashed and the other half saw things as they REALLY were and not what the ‘leader’ wanted them to see.
      It takes brains to distinguish between logic and defective decisions as taken by him. Unfortunately the brainless half have since reproduced and handed down their genes to those who still think that Mintoff was some kind of a genius even if they never knew him.

      • girly says:

        Angus black, for that i am asking what he ever done wrong?Im 22years old.i still wasent born till he was the ruler of Malta.can you please tell me some?

      Generally, they kept quiet because in their countries there was no ‘freedom of speech’ and communications were nowhere where today’s. There was no Internet, no Facebook, no Twitter etc. otherwise the true feelings would have come out loud and clear.

Grazzi ta kollox Dom Mimtoff u jalla tistrih fil paci………………..

      Mintoff ta lill-Daphne il poter biex illum il gurnata tista titkellem fuqu kif taghmel”?

      Int fliema dinja tghix? Int jew zghir, jew ergajt sirt tfal biex ma tafx li Mintoff anke kontra kompjuters kien. Kont trid thallas licenzja biex timporta wiehed u gej tghid li Mintoff ta l-poter biex nitkellmu kif irridu? Mintoff ma riedx jaghti licenzja tar-radju w televizjoni lill PN u kecca lill gurnalisti barranin biex ‘ma jindahlux’ fil-pulitka Maltija! Dik liberta, dik ‘freedom of speech and expression’ – dak Mintoff!

Jien mhux qed nghid li kull ma ghamel huwa tajjeb ta ax kulhadd jizbalja fid dinja, Kemm jien u anke int, imma hadt go Malta ma jista jitkellem HAZIN fuq DOM Mintoff.

    RIP DUMINKU MINTOFF

  395. Claude Sciberras says:

    I think you broke a couple of records today a) number of visitors b) amount of verbal abuse c) birthday wishes – of the wrong type.

    I think someone needs to underline the negative as unfortunately as you say after the death of someone he suddenly becomes a saint.

    I would avoid the name calling as it deflects from the substance but it is important that someone says it as it is.

    Last time a foreign friend of mine wanted to know more about the dark ages of Labour government and I tried to search on Google. I expected to find loads of information on the Labour Government of the 80s and yet I found it hard to find anything which really portrayed the reality of those days.

    Today’s youth have no idea what used to happen then. When people speak about the good that Mintoff did they must also consider the damage he did to this country. KMB had completed the job but his stint in power was basically an extension of the Mintoff years and we we all know what that resulted in – or should i say some of us know…

  396. Cyana Seychell says:

    I am no Mintoff fan, but shame on you Daphne for these words. This is way below the belt. Pure ignorance if you ask me.

    What goes around, comes around.
    You deserve no better.

    insomma kif ghandna habta nghidu ahna l-Maltin – issa meta nsemmu lil Dumink Mintoff nibdew nghidu wkoll “ALLA JAHFIRLU”.

    U fil-very sens tal-kelma li ghandu x’jahfirlu Alla lill-perit ghat-tbatija, il-misthija u d-dwejjaq li gaghlna nhossu kemm dam fil-gvern.

    Bilhaqq, tinsewx li kull darba li Mintoff kien fil-gvern dejjem spicca bl-inkwiet.

  399. TROY says:

    The yellow coward who sent my father to an early grave is finally DEAD.

    Yes I will celebrate with a bottle of the finest champagne,and those Mintoff arse lickers out there who think I’m heartless have no idea how evil and vindictive this man was.

    He died surrounded by a few brain-washed followers. Now he’ll have a state funeral and we’re bound to see a sea of crocodile tears as his rotten body is carried away in a expensive coffin (that’s a new one DOM) through the streets of our capital and then laid down to rest and rot.

    It feels like my birthday too.

    • Clifford says:

      Why not put him in a second hand coffin? He would be pleased to learn that we saved some money – same as the buses and power turbines in his days

    • Belti w kif. says:

      just as well, your father is rotten in hell. Well done Dom.

      Dear Troy,

      Am really impressed . . thought that daphne was the only idiot around seems theres another one . . going by the name of TROY . . .

      once youre done with the champagne you can stick it straight up your ass . . . judging on your comments youll be quite happy . . PUFTA!

      • TROY says:

        DC, which I think stands for Dumb Cunt, you called me a pufta. So you just assumed that I am a man.

        When I’m finished with my champagne, I shall open another one because I just can’t stop celebrating the death of this BASTARD.

    Dear Daph,

    It seems your fan club is out in force today.

    They’re all missing one thing: the fact that they can speak their minds without any fear is the biggest, nicest, largest certificate to Eddie and his friends.

    As someone from the French revolution once said: I may not agree with what you say but I will defend what you say till death.

    The Maltese version would be: If I don’t agree with you, shut up or you will get to feel my chain/boot/knuckle/truncheon…

    Meta ha nikbru?

    • mary says:

      Dear Allamana, go to the library and read some history books because the freedom of speech was given to us by Mintoff and his friends.. Oh and not just that he gave women the right to vote and the right to work and get equal pay … I wonder from who u learnt you Maltese history.!!!

      • Priscilla says:

        Well said mary !

      • The truth? says:

        Freedom of speech given by Mintoff. Sure! You were free to say what you wanted… as long as Mintoff agrees with it. If he didn’t…. well, accidents happen.

      • RSM says:

        “freedom of speech was given to us by Mintoff”, tassew?

        Il-Ligi ta l-indhil barrani insejta?
        Jew kont qed tibblaghhom dak iz-zmien?

        Tant kellkhom (il-laburisti) freedom of speech li stajtu tghidu li tridu, imma min ma kienx laburist jispicca jiehu xi transfer ghal Ghawdex jew jistenna xi vendikazzjoni…

        Jien ghextu iz-zmien taht il Gvern ta’ Mintoff, u hemm kont meta dak il-bodbod ta Lorry Sant u l-klikka tieghu gew issawtuna (l-istudenti) ghax ghamilna protesta kontra l-20 punt, XI FREEDOM OF SPEECH hlomt li taghna Mintoff?

        Jalla hu u Lorry Sant ga qeghdin l-infern ta’ kull hniezrija li saret taht it-tmexxija tieghu ghax jien qatt ma nahfirlu, bhal nofs il-Maltin fuq kollox!!

      • Angus Black says:

        Mary, if Mintoff was still prime minister you would have to pay for a licence to get a computer, you would be beaten up if you dared challenge his politics, you would actually be OWNED by the State.
        In Communist countries every single person was looked after by the State even peasants, after the State took all their produce and left them in utter misery. People queued for a loaf of bread and everything was rationed. The State did all the ‘bulk buying’ and handed out charity to the lowly citizens. Does this ring a bell? BTW Mintoff DID NOT give women the right to vote. That was given before his time.
        Freedom of speech was taken away by Mintoff not the other way round. Your history books must have come out of the propaganda press of Muscat’s Labour Party.

      • IMHO says:

        Wrong, Mary.

        Freedom of speech was eroded under Mintoff’s watch. Why did your lot burn down the Allied Newspapers building, next door to your hero’s office?

        Rights are not given, they are recognised. Mintoff did neither. Women acquired the right to vote in 1947. Mintoff wasn’t prime minister yet.

        Women have always worked, or hadn’t you noticed?
