As Joseph Muscat and Yorgen Fenech ramp up their disinformation campaigns, it is good to remember why Joseph Muscat is trying to throw mud at Chris Fearne and his aides. During Labour’s leadership race that saw Robert Abela elected as Party Leader and Prime Minister, Joseph Muscat initially approached Chris Fearne to trade his support against immunity from the law. Chris Fearne rejected the proposal outright telling him off in the process.
There is also another thing that Muscat asked Fearne. Muscat solicited Fearne to negotiate once again the Steward deal, implying directly that he was already working for their interests even as he stayed on as Prime Minister during his later days in office. Of course, Fearne didn’t even consider any of his proposals. Joseph Muscat went on to support Robert Abela who had agreed to Muscat’s demands and went on to win the leadership race.
