This photograph is published by Newsbook today. It shows Arthur Azzopardi, the legal counsel Adrian Delia picked for his five libel suits against me despite having a whole officeful of lawyers to choose from (Azzopardi runs his own firm), wearing his Masonic apron during a lodge meeting.

His client Delia never wears an apron, because as he told an interviewer this past weekend: “Can’t cook, won’t cook!” Not only that, but he also has his stay-at-home wife bake great, big fascist dishes of mqarrun and ross fil-forn (none of that immigrant sushi stuff) and take them in to the office in Valletta by chauffeur-driven car so that he and his lawyer colleagues don’t have to go out to get some lunch. And, of course, he also gets to advertise the fact that he married above his station – as he sees it – and still managed to turn her into his servant.

I honestly don’t understand how people can’t see these situations for what they are or think of them as normal and acceptable.

That’s Arthur Azzopardi on the left with his hand over his face.
