Keith Schembri: running scared and behaving badly

A journalist, Jacob Borg (the tall one who chases Konrad Mizzi with a microphone and asks him questions about Panama), sent the Prime Minister’s chief of staff some questions about dealings in Azerbaijan, for a story he’s writing for The Sunday Times, and the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, instead of replying in the civilised manner required of him, posted the questions and some terse answers on his Facebook page.

He hadn’t even answered the questions himself. Kurt Farrugia, head of government communications, did it for him.
