Last week a lot of furore and fuss erupted over New Zealand born billionaire Christopher Chandler, the man behind LEGATUM, the think tank at the intellectual heart of the Brexit-campaign, who applied for and subsequently acquired Maltese citizenship, through the Individual Investment Programme.
MEP Roberta Metsola was one of many who took to their keyboards to express disbelief at what they described as ‘surreal’ – a leading Brexiteer activist “buying” a Maltese passport. What we find even more interesting and surreal is that one of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s sons, Paul,worked for LEGATUM and yet none of these people chose to mention it. Isn’t that surreal and a little bit ironic? Or perhaps there’s another word for it.
While Daphne Caruana Galizia sweated bullets and railed against Brexit, her son was employed with the very think tank that made this possible. And while Daphne Caruana Galizia waged a war against Pilatus bank, her son was working for a man who held a bank account with Pilatus bank. Now that is surreal in my book. But for some reason it escaped the notice of The Shift , Manuel Delia and the PN MEPS.
