It is a pity they don't have coach of the year as the Bokke would win that.

Remember the R1 billion budget for the 2016 ANC's election? And a little something for the facilitators too.

Agreed when the water becomes too hot, just move them somewhere else. The next Oil minister publicly announced that what Joe had said was no the truth. I wondered at that, was it inexperience or just plain honesty, in the world of the ANC today, honesty is such a rare commodity.

"FALSE FACE MUST HIDE WHAT THE FALSE HEART DOTH KNOW." Macbeth 1:7 William Shakespeare (1564-1616) English dramatist and poet. The above quote is the last line of the first act of Macbeth. It relates to the scene where Lady Macbeth and her husband resolves to kill King Duncan and take over his throne. To keep their intentions secret they would hide their true but false intentions with a false face to the king. Former minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson.is the epitome of Lady Macbeth. Her blatant lies whilst the Minister of Energy was meant to obfuscate her deplorable actions and hide it from the public. When in May 2016, Business Day’s Carol Paton broke the story of the secret sale of South Africa’s strategic crude oil reserves, about 10‑million barrels’ worth, at a rock-bottom price, this despicable woman and the chief executive of the Central Energy Fund, of which the Strategic Fuel Fund is a part, vociferously claimed it was simply a matter of “stock rotation”. The energy fund would be able to buy back the oil at any time. A more blatant lie is hard to imagine. What must be remembered is that this illegal transaction took place at the time Brent crude oil's price was in the range of $37 to $45 a barrel. What smells so rotten it screams for attention is that the Strategic Fuel Fund saw fit to sell 10‑million barrels of our much needed fuel reserves in a “closed tender” to energy traders Taleveras, Glencore and Vitol at $28 a barrel!!!!! This "brave" act of the Minister left South Africa with less than a day’s worth of oil reserves, calculated at about 300 000 barrels. Taking in mind we use about 450 000 barrels’ worth a day, in reality it left us crippled. God forbid we suddenly have a National emergency and we urgently have to buy millions of barrels. As sure as hell we won't buy it near $28 a barrel! If Alec is correct that Zuma's latest Cabinet reshuffle is to try and hide the finer details of the Oilgate scandal, the only thing they can cover up is who precisely shared in the billions generated from the sale. And if that is the case, and the Laughing Hyena initiated the reshuffle, then one must wonder just how many of the billions found their merry way into the coffers of the Gupta's and the Zuma clan. Unfortunately, I don't share Alec's enthusiasm for December to roll on. Methinks we're going to see and experience a whole truckload of Zuma shenanigans, no matter how detrimental to the economy, the people, and the country, before the much-anticipated ANC Elective Conference gets off the ground. Fasten your seat-belts., Folks, there's severe turbulence ahead. Oh, and by the way, tighten your own belts as well, with what Gigaba and co. have in mind for us, you'd be wise to cut a few extra notches in your belt. AISCH!!!!!!!!!!!

And anyway with SA's out of control crime, we are already experiencing the "Black Death"? It seems that our fellow indigents love violent crimes. Besides, I very much doubt that the Minister of Health has any ability to deal with even a single case, let alone an outbreak?

I cannot agree with anything you have just said here. The government is not on its knees. That this sham of a protest's aim is to bring the government to its needs prematurely does not translate that it will succeed. The Government is not worried. The protests look plain to all now. They are partisan. They are sustained by the old PN establishment who are trying to use DGC murder to survive. All people of good will were woken up by the bomb that kill DCG myself included. I never liked her but I did not hate her. I envied her ability to write flawlessly and thought of her ability as a waste in the way she used it only to funnel her contempt for Labour and Labour supporters. I asked her once why she hated Labour so much and if she did not see any corrupt politicians on PN's side. This was before the election. Her answer was, no, no one in PN are corrupt; and contempt not hate for Labour. I never addressed her name in shallow language. I do not to no one. As for your last sentence. No, it won't get any bigger. The people fighting the present government do not deserve to win anything because most in the fight are not sincere to the initial call which should have united the whole Nation to bring DCG's murderers to justice.

It's always an opportune moment for an election if enough people want it. If a government ends up on its knees because people are protesting and it won't listen, then it is governing terribly and refused to see things coming. Government's fault. And if the government is actually afraid of people protesting as seems to be the case and wants to stop them, then it's a worse government still. One of the primary things we are demanding to change is that the government must be answerable to the people at all times and not only before an election. There may still be a minority protesting on the streets, but the majority at home has been woken up by a bomb. This will get bigger.

Booted at the opportune moment yes; Always as democracy demands. Because some will remain rooted to the opinion that a government is incompetent and corrupt should never spell out let's bring it to its knees. The majority, including the silent one dis not of that opinion. If it was It would have shown by now. Now what I ask is, what is this minority really after? Because we all know that it is always dangerous to stir up the majority to protest against. And it needs only a handful of renegades to do another Black day that will really put the government party to shame and to another spell in opposition!

Did you need Raphael Vassallo to tell you that? But just because you win an election doesn't mean you can't be booted out again if you are incompetent and corrupt to the bone. Look at what's happening to Trump. Joey and Delia are no different.

31/10/2017

I think this is a fitting answer to what you have said in this comment. It comes from Rafael Vassallo's latest blog under the heading "If you want to ‘Occupy Castille’... win an election" Here goes: "There is, after all, a perfectly legitimate way to ‘Occupy Castille’, for those who wish to do so. It’s called ‘democracy’; and while our own electoral system may be complicated in the detail, on the surface it’s fairly straightforward. If you want to occupy the seat of government... you form a party, contest an election, and win"

"I think this is inevitable in any society." That's why what we need to do is to radically decentralise powers. If a country is centrally controlled, it can be centrally subverted and that what has happened to Malta. Those who subverted our country take turns at ruling it and give us the illusion of a vote for, as you well say, "different tastes". PL-PN Like Pepsi and Coke. Both leading to diabetes and death if uncontrolled. The two-party system is broken. We need radical bottom-up change.

Alex, not one country on Earth is Utopia. Appreciate that we are no different. Each Party has crooks in its midst whether they like it or not. My experience with people throughout my life, and this ever since my childhood, is that anywhere I have been I met shady and sinister characters. I think this is inevitable in any society. The bigger the society the bigger the number of crooks. As a people, we are not divided between the good citizens and crooks. Crooks are warts in a society and like warts, you may get rid of one but two will grow somewhere else. As citizens, we are divided because of diverse opinions. All we need is to respect each other and recognize that we all have different tastes.

When I say we are not one people, I am saying the Nation is divided. Do you disagree? And I'm saying it is divided between ordinary people and crooks. Do you disagree? I consider myself one of the ordinary people and I won't unite with crooks.

I will give it a rest if you consider us as not one people. When we say the people that means all the Maltese citizens who make up this Nation. By the people here it is surely not meant those who feel that they can use any excuse or occasion to bash the governments they hate. Or those who each week religiously go to hear Muscat's talks.

No we are NOT one people, Joseph Pavia. There are people who want to see the PLPN status quo go on because they benefit directly in some way. That must be the "One People" you refer to: the I'm In Taghna Lkollers Panama New Way L'Aqwa Zmien Ghall-Politikanti. Then there is a quickly-growing number of people who are sick and tired of the political class destroying our country, sending their bribes to offshore accounts and announcing press conferences when they throw two-cent scraps to the public. This group of people have put up with the situation for a long time. But a certain explosion woke them up. Beware of their fury!

Only the people can change our politicians and that happens as they choose to change their government when there is a call for an election.. This is the only way it is which is allowed in a western democracy. What is happening in my opinion is that under the guise that the rule of law is not being respected a minority is attacking the majority who already said otherwise. An attack on the majority is an attack on democracy. We cannot continue changing the goal posts and the rule of thee game just because these do not fit the agenda of a few who hid behind the Church, the PN and any tragedy that hits Malta; hiding behind all these together whenever we have a Labour government.

No revolution. Revolutions just replace one dictator with another. What we need is a revolutionary change. Those politicians who don't understand the need for change in our terminally sick country will eventually become the minority and will eliminate themselves. Whether they are the ones you mentioned, or others, or the whole political class will depend on them as much as on the people. Delia promised a new way but he is just like Joseph Muscat. We are going to show them both what a new way really means. People are waking up and realising what others have said for years that we have reached tipping point. This can't go on. Listen to the speeches this afternoon.

We remained a democracy and a member state of the EU. What are you suggesting? A revolution to elimlnate Muscat, Delia, Mizzi, Schembri, Cutajar, Grech and Curmi in the process? And this is merited because some people refuse to be governed by a Labour government? Because this is the whole crux of our national problem. Come on now! Is this what we really need so that our lives go on back to the normal times under PN? Twice the majority refused that overwhelmingly!

Yes it did on that black Monday. Many, myself for one were shocked. But now, two weeks on, only some politically motivated people still want to milk the dreadful episode dry for all its worth. A few may really be doing it for DCG. But I am sure that most of those who join in the protests are doing so because it is a golden chance to bash the PL government they hate or that they cannot stand. The truth is that life goes on. It always does whatever happens.
