On entitlement and privilege

Not fair, she bellowed. I would have been President if it were not for those pesky fellows who didn't want a President who served in Joseph Muscat's cabinet. I have worked tirelessly for my country and the people of my country, she continued. I should have been made President!


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President when she served in the cabinet of a Prime Minister considered to be one of the most corrupt men in the world?


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President when she served in the cabinet of a Prime Minister who oversaw the transformation of Malta into a den of iniquity and corruption, crime and money-laundering, landing us in the FATF grey-list?


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President when she was in the leadership team of a government blamed by a public inquiry for its pivotal role in the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia?


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President, when she derided and mocked those who voted for her party because her party had successfully misled them?


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President when her husband initiated a SLAPP suit against a journalist who reported on illegal works they were carrying out on a property of theirs, then lodged a complaint about the judge when he lost the case on appeal?


Did she really expect to be considered for the role of President when her husband called the Chief Justice "Mafia", "corrupt", and "Freemason" in open court, because the Chief Justice did not overturn on appeal a conviction her son had received of trafficking in ecstasy?


The sense of entitlement Helena Dalli has is unparalleled. She isn't happy with the iced bun she received when she was nominated for European Commissioner. She epitomises the sense of entitlement and privilege, the arrogance, of those closely associated with Joseph Muscat. The sad part is that so many, even people who struggle daily to make ends meet, continue to endorse and nurture this sense of entitlement and privilege.
