“Daphne Caruana Galicia resented and admired Malta in equal measure, and she’ll go down in the history of this Mediterranean island as one of the most influential authors,” said editor of the online version of the newspaper Times of Malta Herman Grech.
“Her uncompromising blog and a sharp pen did not skimp on the criticism, she attacked the representatives of the influential labour party and their supporters, criticized the representatives of the centre-right Nationalist party, including its newly elected leader,” added Grech.
