What exactly is Cyrus Engerer saying the PN did? I wonder if anyone bothered asking?

Is he saying that the PN sent those pictures themselves to his ex boyfriend’s boss and office colleagues, and blamed Cyrus for it?

Is he saying that the evidence that was shown was all planted by the PN?

Or is he saying that the PN brought this all to light deliberately?

Once again I think we are seeing how damn stupid people can be, and how in a culture where you don’t normally leave home until you get married we end up with 30- or 40-year-old babies unable to deal with the reality of life.

This isn’t school where you get punished and think it was all unfair and cry and beg for forgiveness. As adults sometimes we make foolish choices, and they all come with consequences. The best thing to do is stand up for yourself, of course, but then to take the consequences with dignity and integrity.

Malta doesn’t seem to function as a country. It functions as an extremely dysfunctional family where everyone cries out when they get caught doing something wrong saying “But they did other worse things!” as though that’s some sort of defence.

Or better still, ‘distract with drama and tears’ is always a favourite. Show the public how sad you are and start crying. Say something – it doesn’t matter what you say as long as it includes the words ‘unfair’ and/or ‘not my fault. Play on people’s ignorance to get support so that other people will tell your lie for you.

I would tell Cyrus to just grow up and stop making things worse for himself, but that would mean I assume Malta to be a normal and democratic country with standards.

Actually I think you’ll find that the ‘distract with drama’ approach is going to work in his favour and get him more support from the PL camp, because that is a tactic they use themselves. They have to support one another when it is being used to add credibility to their own act when they need to make use of it.

    Next stop: Xarabank.

    It’s been decided. The ballot papers are going to be reprinted, all of them. I wonder who’s the lucky guy who’s going to supply all this paper to the government. I am eagerly waiting for the tender to be issued to guess who’s going to win it.

      Why should we taxpayers pay for this additional expense? Cyrus Engerer should be made to pay for it. He caused this mess.

      [Daphne – I trust you’re not serious.]

        I’m sure that Rumplestiltskin is just being righteous and doesn’t really expect Cyrus Engerer to pay for the costs incurred. Although strictly speaking, it’s PL’s fault for accepting him in the first place.

        However there should be a law where someone who withdraws from an election in the last minute, is made to pay a hefty fine to make up for the costs of reprinting.

    If what Mr Engerer is alleging is to be taken seriously, that would mean that the PN knew all the way what he was up to but only proceeded against him once he decided to join the PL.

    But then that would mean that the PN are even more corrupt than the PL; something I categorically refuse to believe.

    [Daphne – The major flaw in this reasoning is that the PN does not proceed against anyone. It can’t, because it’s a political party and not the police force. Also, you are overlooking the most crucial fact: that the police proceeded at the request of Engerer’s victim, a private person who filed a formal complaint and request for investigation and prosecution.]

      My friend, Cyrus Engerer lied through his teeth throughout his case.

      Cyrus has NOT admitted the charges brought against him even though the judgement makes it blindingly clear that he is guilty of a criminal act/s. Cyrus also tried to blackmail his victim.

      How can you even consider Cyrus Engerer’s allegation when you now have this background at your disposal?

    The “distract with drama” approach – successfully used by Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando back in 2008.

  5. Natalie Mallett says:

    These people think they can outrun the law of cause and effect.

    Mr. Engerer should realize that what goes round comes around eventually.

    Let the PL enjoy their pickings from the PN skip. It is quite amusing to watch them in self destruction mode.

    What happened to Mr. John Dalli and Mr. Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando Smith and whatever else. Are they going to join the Malta ‘s got Theatrical Talent show going on at the moment?

    Reminds me of Noel Arrigo and his rosary beads.

    What a Trojan horse Cyrus has turned out to be. Joseph and the P L swallowed the bait hook, line and sinker. The PM now has a serious problem of his own making. Cyrus is even his biographer. Smell the coffee now, and enjoy him.

      I would agree with you, however, like me, you are assuming that this sort of thing is a PR mess for the PL when it isn’t.

      They love it when one of theirs gets accused and/or sentenced like this because it means they can continue to blame the PN and make that person look like some sort of victim.

      Basically they are assholes, and they love this sort of thing because they know exactly how to feed it to their supporters who don’t like feeling like the bad guys.

      In fact, I think that the PL often feel like they have no choice but to find ways of twisting these sort of situations on their heads because their supporters are terrified of being on the losing team.

      They feel that their interests are only protected by the PL, they feel that the PL are the true Maltese leaders, and have no choice but to vote for them. This sort of brainwashing means that they feel that if the PL does something wrong it is their fault too.

      Although blaming them might seem fair enough because they voted for them, they do not see the option of not supporting the PL. They have internalised this sort of barrier and can’t find a way out of it.

      So they will throw their weight behind the PL even more so, treating it more like a sacrificial lamb that has to come up with reasons why it is not at fault so that they can feel they are not at fault. The worst thing a PL leader can do is accept blame for this. That would be letting the supporters down and that is when they won’t vote for him.
