Looking at this video now, with hindsight, it really is astonishing that anyone ever trusted him. Smirks, furrows, self-satisfaction, unconvincing reading off the screen, and above all, the whole sleazy look. I wouldn’t have bought a soup-liquidiser from this man if I found him in a shop. The outcome was inevitable.

All the while he was cross and jealous because he saw government as the route to personal illicit riches, and thought that the Nationalists were all filling their pockets like his friend John Dalli.
