    I feel sick.

    Why is the government consorting with these most unsavoury dictatorships that no prime minister of the western hemisphere will touch with a barge pole?

    Why are we letting this government pimp our country to the highest bidder?

    Why aren’t we resisting this progressive (pun intended) erosion of our values and democratic institutions?

    • Jason king says:

      The only reason that Joseph Muscat is going on these tours because these are the only countries that are even interested in speaking to Malta now.

  2. H.P. Baxxter says:

    Er, Zarifa Aliyeva is the Azerbaijani president’s mother.

    Azerbaijan Taghna Lkoll. And here is a profile of Mr. Aliyev and his politics:

    I wonder whether they just lit up the eternal flame because SleepyHead was on his way for a visit?

  5. Mike says:

    and here are some videos of how protesters are dealt with in Azerbaijan.

  6. Arnold Layne says:

    The wreath-laying is guaranteed to annoy Armenia and, by extension, Russia. Not a very clever move in the dictator collection game.

    Isn’t it obvious to everyone with a grain of common sense that the Malta Labour Party may be being financed by these companies that are being awarded contracts without a competitive tender?

    Henley, Shanghai Electric, SOCAR, the Chinese and Azeri dictators themselves, etc.

    If this is the case, we will see the unleashing of this war chest when it matters most, during election campaigns.

    Someone with knowledge of the market needs to track what all parties are spending so that the MLP will have to give account of what it is spending and where it is getting it from.

    Can anyone at least show this embarrassment to my country on how to improve his posture? Damn kid can’t even stand up straight.

  9. ciccio says:

    Did he do all that in one morning, in the name of the Maltese people?

  10. Who paid for all those wreaths?

    Not that I care to know, but the spectacle of my country’s prime minister acting like a puppet on a string in the hands of a far-off dictator makes me sick.
