This means all the Prime Minister’s communications are being kept out of the public record

This is beyond disgraceful. How are public inquiries meant to proceed, in the event that they are required, if the email evidence is not on the servers at the Malta Informational Technology Agency (MITA) via the prime minister’s official address, but instead on a server in another country?

Even the police can’t obtain email evidence in those circumstances when investigating serious crimes, let alone inquiring magistrates, the Auditor General, the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit or similar.

It’s best for our sanity if we tell ourselves that people don’t understand what this means and why it is being done. To fully comprehend that they understand and don’t care – or better, that they understand and are glad that their correspondence with the head of government, which they shouldn’t be having in the first place, is not in the public record – is enough to make you switch off completely. Which is, of course, exactly what the Muscat cabal wants.
