Grace under pressure, I don’t think: a money-grubbing guttersnipe from start to finish

Yeah right

Yeah right

Kemm jiflah ikun baxx. No better than that green-soap-smuggling, voices-in-prison-hearing, friend-of-the-Naples-Camorra brother of his.

Ghamlu opra, ommhom u missierhom – il-vera kaz. One worse than the other. I won’t say anything about the priest because people who love to miss the point will say that I am insulting a man of the cloth.

Joanna Darmanin, who was John Dalli’s head of cabinet when he was Commissioner, testified at the European Court of Justice today in the case that Dalli brought.

He must be having yet more ‘psycho-social’ problems which have only served to compound his ever-extant stupidity and ignorance, to work so hard at hoisting himself by his own petard.

Darmanin said, of meeting Dalli immediately he came out of Barroso’s office after being forced to resign: “I saw Dalli and he told me, ‘We have a problem. I need to contact my wife. I need to see about my rights. My allowances and whether I have a pension.'”

What scum. What utter, utter, hamallu scum. He is an EU Commissioner who has just been forced to resign (or be fired), the world’s media are rushing to get the story, the scandal is hitting the newspapers back home, and all he can think about is his rights – which to him are his allowances and his pension.

Money, that’s all it’s about with John Dalli. If he and that dowdy, messy wife of his ever spent any on actually living, I would understand it. But apparently the pleasure they both get is from storing it up and counting it.

And good for Joanna Darmanin for slipping in that bit which shows how he hadn’t called his wife yet, despite his having claimed, in his testimony earlier, that he had. The first person he called was his Godfather, Joseph Muscat, his co-conspirator and schemer.

That doesn’t tell me how close they were as friends. It tells me something else: that those two plotters and schemers were counting on doing something together that involved Dalli’s position as EU Commissioner and Dalli had to inform Muscat at once that the whole thing had blown up.

Imma l-aqwa li Joseph is going to China this week to sign a five-year agreement with the communist dictatorship. Hasn’t John Dalli worked out how to get five per cent of that yet? After all, he needs to supplement his pension.
