Lying cheats update: ‘Working-class first-time buyer’ in Prime Minister’s New Year video is actually son of furniture company magnate

Published: January 2, 2016 at 3:36pm

In his elaborately expensive New Year video message, the Prime Minister is shown visiting a working-class couple who he describes as first-time buyers who have been able to buy their home thanks to the government’s tax benefits.

Standing in their pricey kitchen, the young man gives the impression that he and his wife are ordinary people who now have more work thanks to Labour – hence that pricey kitchen.

Once more, you are being lied to by a propaganda-driven government. The ‘young working-class couple’ are Fernando Agius and his wife. Agius is on the family payroll at Malta’s largest furniture company, Construct Furniture, which is owned by his mother Bridget nee Camilleri and her siblings.

The company was set up by his grandfather John Camilleri, who died last year, a brother to Lorry Sant’s notorious front and thug, Piju Camilleri, who is rumoured to have held the 1980s Labour minister’s assets acquired through corruption. Piju Camilleri is one of the landowners who stand to gain by the opening up to development of the Zonqor Point ODZ area.

The fancy kitchen shown in the video is one supplied and built by the family operation, Construct Furniture.

Fernando Agius was sent to school at De La Salle College (not a great advertisement for that school; he is barely articulate), drives a massive SUV, and the home shown in the video, which is in Wilga Street, Hal Luqa, was bought with family money.
