Earthquake in the Nationalist Party? If you say yes, you’re a liar.
Thirty six minutes after The Times of Malta (on-line edition, yesterday Tuesday February 3, 2009) reported that Sebastian Dalli was accused in court of association to traffic cannabis on December 27 last year – the fifth arraignment to be made after a police operation at Miġra l-Ferħa on December 27 when what was thought to be a consignment of cannabis was intercepted as it was being brought ashore on a dinghy – Daphne Caruana Galizia exclaimed that “this one is going to grow and grow, unless the prime minister acts immediately to nip it in the bud”. http://daphnecaruanagalizia.com/?p=1536
According to another e-mail from one Bertoldo Cacasenno aka Gahan Lawrjat (same one who wrote to us last week, see Seismogramme in this blog) this is what is what is happening: the lady’s views reflect the interests of someone else, someone powerful, who feels threatened by minister John Dalli, who happens to be Sebastian’s brother. The Miġra l-Ferħa story could not have happened at a better time for whoever is afraid of John Dalli. Who is afraid of John Dalli?
Whatever, the ruling Nationalist Party is united four-square behind its Kap and anyone who suggests otherwise is a traitorous insider or a Labourite provocateur or worse. A case in point is the guy who wrote the following hogwash in The Times of Malta on January 19:
“Governments are made possible by alliances: social and political alliances, by alliances of convenience and, sometimes, of conviction, by strategic and tactical alliances, by long-term and short-term alliances. Many of the alliances that this government is built on are beginning to come apart. This is sending tremors throughout the whole edifice of Lawrence Gonzi’s government. No wonder he looks worried.” (See No Quantum of Solace in this blog).
