Malta’s Opposition is living in a “La La Land bubble”, according to Kristina Chetcuti, the partner of former PN leader Simon Busutitl.
Chetcuti, an activist with the pressure group Occupy Justice, penned a hard-hitting opinion piece in Sunday Times of Malta today, in which she questioned why the FBI is no longer involved in the investigation into the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
She said the situation is hopeless and helpless because the Opposition is living in its own bubble, making reference to how its leader Adrian Delia was recently criticised by Caruana Galizia’s sister for laying a wreath at the makeshift protest memorial in Valletta for the assassinated journalist.
“On Wednesday, the leader of the Opposition mistook the protest memorial in Valletta for the grave of Caruana Galizia,” Chetcuti wrote. “He went with a bunch of men in ties and cameras in tow, “to pay their respects to Daphne”. He clearly does not realise that flowers and candles are placed at the foot of the Great Siege monument as a sign of protest against injustice and corruption which the journalist unveiled.”
Indeed, she said the protest is against Delia too, both because he isn’t opposing and because he has too much “dodgy baggage” to be bale to do his job properly.
“If no one around him – Louis Galea please note – is telling him what’s going on outside the bubble, then they all really ought to find another hobby other than hogging crucial democratic roles,” she said.
“A friend of mine the other day told me: “At this point, if I still had hair, I might have joined Graffiti”, in reference to his disillusionment of the political class across the board. “Since I no longer have hair, I am slowly becoming a hermit in my own house.” I know the feeling.”
