Prime Minister issues statement; Prime Minister’s aide launches assault on blog

This is completely unacceptable. Those who are still backing this scum should be taken out and shot. What do they care about Erdogan standards of government, as long as they are swimming in a sea of (funny) money?

Yesterday, the Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement about Manfred Galdes’s resignation as chief of the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit, saying that it was because he was offered a post in the private sector and failing to point out the obvious that the job offer will have come after the decision to resign, and not the other way round.

And this morning, the Prime Minister’s aide sat at his desk at the Prime Minister’s Office and uploaded a post about Manfred Galdes. It is unacceptable specifically because it was written and published by the Prime Minister’s aide.

These animals don’t know the meaning of the word ‘boundaries’ and that it is crucial to maintain them when you are in government or any form of public office.

And to my mind, the even greater crime is the fact that an aide to the Prime Minister – a communications aide, if you please – doesn’t know even the most basic English grammar. WHICH PRIVATE LAW FIRM MANFRED GALDES WAS NEGOTIATING WITH? he writes, and in his heading too.

The arrogance is incredible – imagine having that kind of arrogance that leads you to believe that you know the language sufficiently to communicate publicly in it, when you are unfamiliar even with the interrogative form.

It has long been a mystery to me why Maltese people have such serious problems with the interrogative form in English. You don’t have to learn the grammar at school. For heaven’s sake, how difficult can it be to pick up the position of the verb in an English question when you grow up on an island where English is an official language and you watch English and American films and read stuff in English all the time?


The answer to that is: whichever one it is will be damned fortunate to have him; its gain is the public sector’s very serious loss.

The government loses Manfred Galdes and gets to keep…Glenn Bedingfield, Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi.
