BREAKING/Prime Minister and chief of staff use @josephmuscat.com addresses to deal secretly with Henley & Partners chairman, who addresses them as “Keith and Joseph” (in that order)

Published: May 31, 2017 at 3:02pm

Rather than write up the story, I’ve chosen to reproduce an email which I sent some minutes ago to the Prime Minister (Joseph Muscat), his chief of staff (Keith Schembri), the Justice Minister (Owen Bonnici), the CEO of Malta’s sale of citizenship scheme (Jonathan Cardona) – all on their @josephmuscat.com addresses – and the group chairman of Henley & Partners (Christian Kalin).

The email is copied to the two lawyers at the London law firm Mishcon de Reya, Emma Woolcott and Harry Eccles-Williams, who have been harassing me with letters and demands at the request of Henley & Partners, in turn at the request of the Prime Minister and his chief of staff, to the leader of the Opposition, and to editors at The Malta Independent, the Times of Malta, Malta Today and LovinMalta.

Here it is, below.

——–

This message is addressed to the Prime Minister of Malta, his chief of staff, Malta’s Justice Minister, Jonathan Cardona, CEO of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme, and Christian Kalin, group chairman of Henley & Partners, and copied  to the leader of the Opposition, to editors at The Malta Independent, the Times of Malta, Malta Today and LovinMalta, and to Emma Woolcott and Harry Eccles-Williams at Mishcon de Reya

Sirs,

I have in my possession evidence, in the form of email exchanges between the addressees of this message, that Henley & Partners’ threat/decision to sue me in the UK courts was taken on instruction from, and in collusion with you, the Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat, his chief of staff, Keith Schembri, and the Justice Minister, Owen Bonnici.

Following a meeting on the subject with the Justice Minister, Christian Kalin, who is group chairman of Henley & Partners, outlined a plan under which letters designed to intimidate with the threat of a financially ruinous and extremely cumbersome law suit in the “UK courts” were to be sent to me, to the Opposition MP Jason Azzopardi, and to “three media houses” in an attempt at dissuading us from further scrutiny of Henley & Partners and its opaque and damaging activities in Malta.

This plan was then put past you, the Justice Minister, and you, Jonathan Cardona, CEO of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme, for your approval. It was also forwarded to you, the Prime Minister and to you,  Keith Schembri, in tandem, and Henley & Partners’ group chairman addresses you by your first names: “Keith, Joseph”, in that order.

You, the Prime Minister, reply: “i don’t object” (sic) and you, Keith Schembri, reply:  “Thanks, Chris. This looks good. Very kind regards”.

At some point, you dropped the decision to threaten and intimidate the “three media houses” and Opposition MP Jason Azzopardi, with a view to focussing solely on me with a barrage of letters and emails from Mishcon de Reya, a respectable law firm with a reputation to protect, who may be unaware that they are being used as a tool to effect the corrupt plans of the Prime Minister of a European Union member state against a journalist who he has marked out as his own personal enemy, and who he wishes to ruin financially because he cannot do so in other ways.

You will notice that rather than using your official @gov.mt addresses, I have chosen to use your unofficial @josephmuscat.com addresses instead, given that these are the addresses which you use for your illicit and highly unethical negotiations and correspondence with Henley & Partners and others, as seen by myself in a shocking series of emails that illustrate how far the Maltese Prime Minister and those closest to him have fallen down the road to corruption and abuse.

At the most basic level, it is beyond belief that the Prime Minister of a European Union member state – as distinct from Henley & Partners’ favourite stomping-ground, St Kitts & Nevis – would allow himself to be addressed in this overly familiar fashion by the chairman of a corporation that has come to Malta to sell European Union Schengen Zone passports through a convenient arrangement with yourselves, to the detriment of other EU member states and with damaging consequences for Malta itself, or that he would allow himself to be addressed by that chairman in the same bracket as his own supposed underling and chief of staff, with his chief of staff even taking precedence: “Keith, Joseph”.

It is just as disgusting that you, the Prime Minister of my country, stoops so low as to enter into collusion with a corporation chairman, showing him that you deliberately and maliciously use an @josephmuscat.com address for ‘official’ business rather than your @gov.mt address, and that you have drawn your Justice Minister and the CEO of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme (your former ‘Sherpa’) into collusion to do likewise, along with your chief of staff Schembri who you clearly treat as a business equal if not actually a superior to whom you concede.

In other words, you, the Prime Minister of Malta, have no problem at all showing a corporation chairman that you are deliberately and maliciously choosing ways and means to cheat the public you have been elected to serve, and to hide information from the civil service, and that you so lack the dignity of the office you hold, that you draw the corporation chairman with multiple passports into this plot to hoodwink your own government and people.

I know that this email will be ignored by you, the Prime Minister, by you, his chief of staff (you have already barred my telephone number), by you, the Justice Minister and also by you, the CEO of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme (who brazenly and disgracefully uses the email address [email protected]). But I shall still ask the question as to why you are colluding with Henley & Partners using @josephmuscat.com addresses hosted on a private server in the United States, rather than your official @gov.mt addresses hosted on the Malta government’s servers.

This particular question is addressed to Christian Kalin, group chairman of Henley & Partners: Why, despite the fact that you are here operating in a European Union member state and not in the Caribbean islands of St Kitts & Nevis, you have agreed to collude with the Prime Minister, his chief of staff, another senior cabinet minister and the head of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme using @josephmuscat.com addresses, when you know – because you operate extensively in corrupt and undemocratic jurisdictions – that the sole purpose of this is to keep the exchanges from being part of official government records as they should be.

As I myself said to you, Mr Kalin, during our sole meeting some weeks ago: “The fact that you deal with shady members of the Malta government and may have been exposed to corrupt dealings at an official level here in Malta does not change the fact that Malta is nonetheless a European Union member state and not a dirt-poor and desperate Caribbean island without the rule of law or institutions to safeguard it.”

I should add here that, this morning at the Courts of Justice, I informed the inquiring magistrate in the Egrant Inc/Pilatus Bank inquiry that the Prime Minister, his chief of staff, the Justice Minister, the chief of Malta’s Sale of Citizenship Scheme and other key henchmen are all using [email protected] addresses for their illicit exchanges concerning Henley & Partners, which would indicate that they are doing the same in their other (nefarious) plots.

I also suggested that he should act immediately to gain investigatory access to the josephmuscat.com email server as he will probably find many of the answers he is looking for there.

Meanwhile, a word of advice to the addressees of this email message: if you are going to take the trouble to creep around using @josephmuscat.com addresses to hide your dealings from the public and the civil service, it’s a good idea to make sure that you don’t automatically pick up your correspondent’s @gov.mt address by default when you type in his name, as that will send the entire chain of emails to the Malta government server.

In some of the correspondence between Christian Kalin of Henley & Partners and Joseph Muscat, Keith Schembri, Jonathan Cardona, and Owen Bonnici, the ‘@gov.mt’ email address is mistakenly picked up by default instead of @josephmuscat.com, throwing whole chains of exchanges into the Malta government server.

    “Chris, what’s time the spit roast?”

    “Sorry, you emailed the wrong Chris.”

  2. The Sceptic says:

    Congratulations, you have outdone even yourself. This is journalism as it should be.

  3. Esteve says:

    Nobody should rest before Joseph & Co. are all behind bars.

  4. Pont pilat says:

    Well done, Daphne. They think that they are smarter than everyone else, but little do they know.

  5. r pace bonello says:

    Who is the more important to Henley & Partners? Keith or Joseph?

  6. Tom Double Thumb says:

    A semi-decent and fractionally-competent Police Commissioner has more than enough evidence to charge all the people mentioned in that e-mail immediately, for serious crimes in the very highest public positions.

    But Malta does not have that sort of Police Commissioner. In the circumstances, you are actually risking being arrested for publishing this article. If the authorities decide to take that course, there would be open rebellion in Malta. Enough is enough.

  7. Stephen Forster says:

    What a bunch of utterly contemptible, low-life, money-grubbing sleazeball twats, the London law firm included.

  8. Julian Borg says:

    Fucking zibel!

  9. canon says:

    We are behind you , Daphne, every step of the way.

  10. Victor Bonello says:

    Plain disgust, pity too many Maltese cannot understand what this means or what it is about.

    • Corinne Vella says:

      Go out there and explain it.

      • Odyssey says:

        One-third of the electorate is illiterate, while another third is literate but not that intelligent. It is a lost cause.

      • Corinne Vella says:

        It’s a lost cause if you keep up that attitude. Moping among the like-minded won’t change anything.

      • Reader says:

        Corinne, that’s not fair to post, sorry. I don’t know Victor but I’m sure that his family including their dog are all out there trying to explain it.

        I’m in the same position; unfortunately we encounter a lot of people who insist that voting is a matter of principle to the extent that they actually believe that they get branded with a Labour hot iron upon exiting their mother’s womb.

        Yes, it’s that serious. One can never get into a political argument with people like that.

  11. Claire Portelli says:

    And Saviour Balzan is going to vote for them again – he said so in his article in Illum a few days ago.

  12. Jozef says:

    Kah-boom.

  13. Sowxal says:

    What a collection of slimy pieces of sh** these people are.

  14. callixtus says:

    So the Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff and the CEO of a state entity of a European Union member state, have been caught colluding with a corrupt passport-sales company to try and silence the free press of that very same EU member state.

    Anyone who thinks Malta is still a democracy is a fool. Muscat is a despot. If he’s re-elected Malta will become a mini Turkey.

    • Corinne Vella says:

      Malta already is a mini-Turkey. The difference is that Malta is a member of the European Union.

  15. Mary Lucas says:

    No words – not printable ones anyway.

  16. Mike says:

    Intriguing screen grab re: 10 nov 2016. Presumably Henley instructing Malta’s PM where he must go whore our country out to next, a full 2 years in advance.

    • Yes, they also discussed hotel suites and there is one particularly interesting exchange where the Prime Minister becomes very upset because Henley & Partners invited the President (Marie Louise Coleiro Preca) to speak at a passport-sales event in London without telling him. They also discuss suitable dates for a London event with Joseph Calleja, who gives them a hard time because of his packed diary, and when a date is found that suits them all, they have a snarky bitchfest behind his back about how expensive he is, though he is probably worth it.

  17. tinnat says:

    Why? It’s just another scandal, small compared to the others, so its effect on people will be limited. Game over may happen on Saturday if people vote right.

  18. GWAR says:

    You should have copied Tony Blair and Matteo Renzi as well

  19. A. Muscat says:

    This is a Cosa Nostra organisation, not the government of a European Union member state.

  20. David Griscti says:

    My God, this is shocking. How can anyone decent, honest and upright approve of this blatant abuse?

    This eats at the heart of our democracy. It shows Muscat and his gang to be very dangerous rogues who are now eating away at the very foundations of Malta’s institutions.

    All people of goodwill: we HAVE TO put an end to this mess or we will be damned for a generation.

  21. callixtus says:

    The cupola keeps expanding.

  22. Rosez says:

    They are not even smart but they pretend to be smarter. #barra

  23. PETER MALLIA says:

    This should be sent to Ana Gomes and Werner Langan at the European Parliament’s anti-money-laundering committee, and to Donald Tusk. No need to bother with Jean Claud Junker.

  24. Joe Fenech says:

    Ilham Aliyev’s apprentice has mastered criminality.

  25. BVella says:

    Those who have got their finger in the pie will say that it’s all lies (or so they tell themselves). And then there are the illiterates who can’t work out what such emails/documents/arguments/proof/setups mean.

    So they just repeat that it must be all a lie, because that’s a lot easier than trying to understand what is being done to them and to their country. And they will vote Labour back into power next Saturday, and be totally happy about it, as if their favourite football team has won.

  26. Floater_Malta says:

    One word: sad.

    • I don’t think that’s quite the word you’re looking for.

      • carl barthet says:

        Joseph Muscat is Malta’s nightmare. We will have to be ready to fight him, all the way, even on the streets, to safeguard our democracy, if he wins.

        This is their plan to break us completely. We do not know what’s coming our way, and it’s going to be hell – if he give him this chance.

    • Reader says:

      Frustration more likely, knowing that our only weapon against all this premeditated web of corruption is just a pencil and a piece of paper which we can only use this Saturday.

    • quickmick408 says:

      Try ‘bastards’.

  27. Malta Taghhom Ilkoll says:

    These are the same people who have just bought the votes of 50% of the Armed Forces of Malta with overnight mass promotions. I hope that it’s not another Noriega in the making.

  28. Reader says:

    This is shocking, incredible. I’m lost for words. Thank you, Daphne.

    Before I read this post, I was trying to figure out the complex web behind Vitals Group. Let me know if you need more details, and I’ll send them by email.

  29. “But it’s Daphne. She’ll pull through.” Because, you know, I’m not human.

    When people say that, I feel like slapping them.

      Slap them? I would use a knuckleduster.

    • Lydia Pace Workman says:

      If only there were more women with sizable ovaries and men with grandes cajones, Malta would never be in this predicament to start with.

      • callixtus says:

        Logic, honesty and courage have nothing to do with sex organs. They are the result of an intelligent brain and good upbringing.

  30. He will have to go through the US authorities, which is no joke – and exactly the reason those crooks have it hosted there and not in Europe.

  31. What worries me most is not the whole “in-your-face” anti-democratic, anti-journalistic and dictatorial picture behind this, but the fact that all those with vacuum for brain cells will be taking the “U iva, mhux xorta” stance with their vote this coming Saturday.

  32. If the people demand justice, they would vote for it. I’m keeping an open mind about that.

    • Steve C. Miller says:

      That’s what we are voting for. It just happens it is the Nationalist Party we need to vote for to get there. And this time round I do not expect ‘national reconciliation’ stuff a la 1987 to get in the way of putting these five crooks and their associates where they belong, behind bars.

  33. callixtus says:

    How very reassuring. We have been ruled by Henley & Partners with the help of a criminal gang of Maltese Laburisti for the past four years. BARRA.

  34. Matthew Borg says:

    Assholes, just assholes. Can we see the rest of the emails?

  35. JS says:

    The Prime Minister and his chief of staff are conmen. Hopefully come next Sunday, Malta will return to the rule of law and a Prime Minister who will work to clean Malta’s name.

  36. Is Sixer says:

    I have been expecting some more revealing news from you, Mrs Galizia, but not of this calibre. A criminal organisation within the goverment led by the Prime Minister himself.

    They thought of it for a very long time and organised it to the finest detail. God knows what we still have to find out.

    The level of disgust people now feel for this criminal gang who have hijacked the government and the country’s institutions is beyond belief. You have my support. It must be hellish.

    As for the honest public, it is time to prise these criminals out of office.

  37. Dumbo says:

    At this rate nothing convinces me that there will be no jerrymandering next Saturday. Keep in mind that the Labour Party has already rehearsed their gathering at the counting hall in Naxxar.

  38. bernie says:

    Nothing short of a dictatorial state.

  39. orapronobis says:

    Ja qabda tradituri! Barra!

  40. Butragenio says:

    They are walking down a dark one-way street. We have the power to stop them now, or let others do it later. It’s our choice.

  41. The people you really have to thank are the unsung (because they cannot be made known) heroes who are risking their jobs, their livelihood and prosecution so as to come forward with this information, in the name of justice and all that is right and proper.

    As one of them said to me some days ago: “I could lose my job and, ironically, end up in prison when they don’t. But what’s the alternative – more of this? We can’t go on like this.”

  42. Antoine Vella says:

    The first sentence of Kalin’s email is chilling: “We have looked into the matter to (sic) threaten a defamation case against Jason Azzopardi and Daphne Caruana . . .”

    I get a mental image of these men coldly discussing how to silence their critics. They decide to threaten them and the calm, matter-of-fact way they talk about it makes it more menacing.

    They finally single out Daphne as the object of their threats, perhaps reasoning that it’s easier to intimidate individuals one at a time.

    Mafia bosses using Mafia methods.

  43. steve fenech says:

    My first reaction was to puke, but that would be wasted if it’s not on these scoundrels.

    Again and again, your credentials for investigative journalism come shining through. And you are trusted by sources who feel more comfortable coming to you with their revelations than they do to the mainstream media houses. That I can understand, as one does not know who sees what in those organisations.

    Quite honestly, and despite the best efforts of the rest of the independent media, if it weren’t for you we would be mostly in the dark about what these crooks are up to. Unfortunately, for you this must all come at a price for you and your family.

    You may find some comfort in knowing that you have my gratitude for what you are doing for me and for my family.

  44. Macduff says:

    And these corrupt rats are set to win this Saturday. It’s unbelievable and unbearable. It makes me feel sick. What have we done to deserve a tribe that is ready to elect criminals at all costs?

    We’re four square behind you, Daphne. Thank you for all the hard work.

  45. Catsrbest says:

    I firmly believe that he went to Azerbaijan more than once to take some ‘interesting’ private lessons in totalitarianism.

  46. It’s not because it’s Malta. It’s because it’s Muscat’s Malta.

    The first thing I thought when I saw all those emails on private, secret-server email addresses, between a corporation boss, the Prime Minister and his chief of staff, in which they interact casually and call each other Chris, Keith and Joseph, was: “My God, can you imagine a corporation boss emailing Prime Minister Fenech Adami and his chief of staff Richard Cachia Caruana, jointly and casually, for government business, on [email protected] and [email protected] addresses, and beginning his message “Richard and Eddie”?”

  47. There are some very brave and decent people out there. I’m just discovering that.

  48. Dumbo says:

    In a civilized society it would have been game over ages ago and this history would only serve academic purposes. Unfortunately Malta is ruled (not governed) by a mob.

  49. The Prime Minister is not just complicit in this. He is one of the instigators, alongside ‘Keith’.

  50. Zammit says:

    Was it the Russians this time?

  51. Yes, of course. But what was the alternative – not writing about it?

  52. Yes, I’ve just written a post about that.

  53. Dorothy Sciortino says:

    The common factor between these shameful individuals is not their illicit email address but most probably a bank account at PILATUS.

  54. Julian Borg says:

    If I open my eyes all I see is four years of corrupt practices backed up by evidence.

  55. He had the election date sorted already. His first choice was 27th May.

    • Reader says:

      But the normal and expected date from a party in government with 7 seats and 36,000 majority was no earlier than March 2018.

      Something went horribly wrong for them to make them change their mind to sacrifice an entire year of power and follow the polls to try to ensure that they got re-elected.

  56. I have explained already that the server is in the United States. This means that the inquiring magistrate has to jump through several complicated and time-consuming procedural hoops before he can get an order for access from the US authorities. That kind of thing takes months and with no guarantee that the order will be given.

    Is your solution not to write about it at all? I hasten to remind you that journalism is a separate ‘power’ to the police and the judiciary, and not part of it or something that serves its cause.

  57. You are correct. But there is a more obvious route, and that is for the inquiring magistrate to issue a warrant for the seizure by the police of laptops, smart-phones and other devices used by Joseph Muscat and Keith Schembri. The only thing that will then stand in the way is their passwords – but I’d like to see a situation in which the Prime Minister and his chief of staff refuse to give their passwords to the inquiring magistrate in an inquiry which the Prime Minister has called himself.

    • R F says:

      Nassumu jerga’ jitla l-Labour, liema magistrat se jkollu il-guts jipprezenta rizultat ta’ investigazzjoni li tmur kontra dawn in-nies? Min jaf minn liema infern irid jghaddi ghal kumplament ta’ hajtu. Jekk irridu li issir gustizzja, inheggu lil min nafu biex jivvota Forza Nazzjonali.

      Yes, but the data would have long been deleted in the meantime.

  58. tinnat says:

    It won’t happen before Saturday. Let’s vote them out and let natural justice take its course.

  59. PETER MALLIA says:

    I believe that I am not alone when I say that many years back, one of the major motivations for wanting to be part of the EU was that someone in Brussels would prevent things like this happening, that even if labour were voted into power, the European Commission would action the necessary checks and balances, and what we lived through in the 70s and 80s would not be able to happen again.

    Unfortunately, I was wrong, and what’s going on today is the premise (actually more than just a premise) of something much worse than what was going on during those years.

    A lot of courage and energy is needed by all of you who are sticking your necks out for what is right. I fear that a hard and tough battle is brewing.

  60. Godfrey Leone Ganado says:

    Daphne – you are unique and you have our solidarity and support to stand up to our corrupt Prime Minister and all the cabinet ministers who support corruption.

  61. That’s right. It’s a criminal organisation, and has been since Dom Mintoff seized control of it decades ago.

  62. John Jones says:

    It is not just Daphne who needs to keep the faith. The time is soon coming when we might all have to stand to be counted.

  63. Corinne Vella says:

    Henley & Partners have dragged themselves through the mud. Kalin and his partners are in cahoots with Muscat in his dirty deals.

    • Stephen Forster says:

      That just shows you what Mischcon de Reya’s ethics and standards are too. “Law firm of the year”, my arse.

      • Corinne Vella says:

        Mishcon de Reya’s ethics and standards are not a factor in this election. Muscat’s collusion with the passport peddlar is.

  64. Corinne Vella says:

    I think you have answered your own question.

  65. Corinne Vella says:

    Someone with criminal intent who conspires with others of a like mind to take over government and run it as a personal business would not shrink at a warning by the Auditor General.

  66. Zammit says:

    He probably has one himself.

  67. Mr Ellul, I don’t think they hoodwink people. I think it’s far worse: that people see them for what they are and like it. I actually think that many of the people who are refusing to tell pollsters how they plan to vote are not, as so many seem to believe, those who are scared to say they will vote Nationalist, but rather people who are ashamed to admit that they plan to vote Labour despite the scandals, corruption and quite obvious criminality. Because they like it, or because they fancy Joseph.

  68. R.Cassar says:

    A lot of people look at politicians as regular guys. They do not see them wearing hats whenever they are addressing the nation in an official capacity.

    So they think it is okay for a Prime Minister to use an unofficial email account whilst conducting official business. They hear stories about Hillary Clinton and the use of her personal email which helped her lose the presidential election and do not see parallels.

    Even when you spell it to them, they fail to understand that @gov.mt emails are stored on the government servers and this keeps them accountable of all official communications.

    I tried to explain how civics was taught many years ago and how you had to know the very basics of government, of how it is formed.

    You ask several people what they think money-laundering is, and they give you a blank look. There are people who would sell their own mother if they thought they could turn a profit. These people are easy targets for this criminal gang.

    You have to start teaching your children early in life about having values and principles. You have to give them roots to defend themselves from abuse and corruption.

  69. love travel says:

    I am truly lost for words. If that bastard criminal wins this coming election I would be then convinced he made a pact with the devil.

  70. The Sting says:

    So right now we are a nation undefended against the powers that be. The Prime Minister and many of his ministers/MPs should have resigned a long time ago over innumerable cases. But they don’t, and unless they are voted out next Saturday, there doesn’t seem to be any way they are made to do so.

    Being found guilty of money-laundering carries a prison sentence of up to 18 years.

  71. tinnat says:

    Not everyone is pork. Some are intelligent human beings who lack the courage at the moment.

  72. Annabella says:

    Thank you, Daphne and other unsung contributors. Be brave. Seek the truth.

  73. Sparky says:

    It’s a couple of hours since this story was published and we haven’t heard anything from the corrupt lot. One wonders.

  74. Corinne Vella says:

    You can do all that as well as. It’s not an either/or situation.

  75. Hannibal Borg says:

    Oxley Capital has been repeatedly mentioned in connection with Vitals Group. I couldn’t quite remember the precise context. It appears they control Bluestone Investments.

  76. Tabatha_White says:

    Why is it a pencil?

  77. Dizzy says:

    Henley & Partners declare that they do not interfere in the politics of the countries which sell their passports as Malta does. This is now undeniable proof that they are liars and corrupters.

  78. Tabatha_White says:

    Yes.

  79. canon says:

    In any possible way.

  80. Jim says:

    The prescriptive period is one year in England too. This is an entirely vexatious plot.

  81. Jhon Camacho says:

    This gang is shaming all of us Maltese. All this will not end Saturday 3rd June. Tradituri ta’ Malta huma.

  82. RF says:

    Evarist Bartolo said that we need structures so that the Panama affair will not happen again. It’s people with integrity and backbone that we are lacking who had the chance, like him in the cabinet, but did not stop Joseph Muscat and Keith Schembri from committing such abuses and crimes.

    I hope that the corruption under his very nose by his own canvasser will get punished.

  83. Stephen Forster says:

    It would be interesting to know if Mischon de Reya have also facilitated any candidates for the purchase of Maltese citizenship through any networking company here in Malta.

  84. Jan Farrugia says:

    Why is the Times of Malta so silent about this new corruption story?

  85. Chickchickchick says:

    I am speechless. This is beyond serious and grave. If this doesn’t open the eyes of the undecided floaters and switchers, then nothing will.

    Thank you for your ability to connect all the dots between various pieces of information you receive. and then more importantly sharing it all with us. Thank you.

  86. Chickchickchick says:

    You must be joking. They don’t give a shit about us. They are greedy self-centred bastards.

  87. That’s OK. I tend to know what I’m doing most of the time.
