Enjoy the peace

At a court hearing yesterday (Thursday) a representative of the State asked me if it could be that Lino Cauchi was killed in some sort of personal vendetta.

We have reached that stage. So it’s not just “she had it coming” Daphne Caruana Galizia. Or “he just had to happen to be in the way” Raymond Caruana.  All the victims of State terror were in some way or another to blame for what happened to them.

This is a massive rewriting of history, a fraud now reaching stratigraphic levels, aimed at quieting alarmed souls, at bringing the country to a state of peace and tranquillity regardless of problems that there may be.

It’s very clear the election is very near and nothing must be allowed to disturb the peace.

We have come out of lockdown and overcome the virus. We are reopening. People are coming out. Restaurants are open, bars reopening, tourists coming back.

And anybody who dares question even one of these assertions is branded as negative, as wanting bad things to happen, as hating the lawfully elected government, as being out to bring the government down.

Even this snippet shows how much our democracy is a sham. All the effort in the coming months will be to get one side just one vote ahead of the other side and so hand the winner a carte blanche for the next five years.

In 2003 there was a massive move to stop Malta from joining the European Union (by the people now benefiting big time from the EU) whereas the member states were moderately in favour. They will now be regretting their inaction.

Malta has now become the side door through which so many undesirables entered Europe. There are other countries facing charges of corruption other than Malta. At least Malta is now not being mentioned as objecting to the US plan to tax multinationals on the profits they make but do not pay tax on (with Cyprus beating us to that).

So the plans are now in place to anaesthetise the population and tranquillise people into believing we don’t have it so bad. This was the belief I understand of some of the conclusions reached at the conference sponsored by the President which aimed to tell us the state of our being.

So people who are becoming quite alarmed at the sheer amount of construction going on find that their worries do not matter. And people concerned at the continual loss of the little countryside. And all those regretting the sudden loss of the countryside to hunters.

Now all this may not factor in the opinion survey that is due today and people will begin to draw their conclusions and position themselves accordingly. Just as they did in 2017. And in 2013. And deals will be done just as they have always been.

Until either we run out of space or the built apartments but unsold will be so many as to collapse the economy. But that, and so many other issues I haven’t mentioned, will be put on the back burner until the election is over and secured.

Enjoy the peace.
