Mintoff and his Socialist policies were only successful because of the overly generous contributions he received from The British after they left. Malta got 14 million per year, much more than Malta has got from the EU in today's exchange. Malta is now in debt up to its ears and should go cap in hand back to China to stop itself sinking under the Med, either through debt or genocidal mass invasion of illegal immigrants.

RIP DOM MINTOFF...The only prime minister of true grit that we ever had in Malta.

Only ONE maltese person is made of the same stuff as Mintoff.

His name is...

NORMAN LOWELL.

Maltese people...if you still want to call yourselves MALTESE, take heed of the warnings and predictions that Mr Lowell delivered that historical day of the meeting in SAFI.
MALTA...You are now tasting the bitter fruits of your folly in ignoring the warnings of Mr. Norman Lowell.
VOTE NORMAN LOWELL
IMPERIUM EUROPA
ANNO 2012

OR PERISH IN THE BACKYARD OF THE HISTORY OF PLANET EARTH.

Mintoff viewed as divisive because conservatives resisted his reforms - KMB
You need Javascript and either Adobe Flash 9 or Html5 to view this video. 
Dom Mintoff's successor at Castille, Karmenu Mifsud Bonnici, said today that Mr Mintoff was viewed as being a divisive figure because he brought about reforms which were resisted by the conservative forces.

He drew hatred on himself  but carried on for the common good and the national interest, he said.

Admittedly, his methods were rough, because he felt that the circumstances of the time so merited in order to push reform through. He brought reform at the expense of personal hatred, Dr Mifsud Bonnici said.

Dr Mifsud Bonnici said Mr Mintoff should be remembered as the person who had lifted the Maltese people, economically and culturally. He had showed the people how they could stand on their own feet and govern themselves without relying on foreigners.

"Mintoff gave the Maltese people an identity which they previously did not have in the eyes of the foreigners," Dr Mifsud Bonnici told timesofmalta.com.

Huge turn out for Dom Mintoff.


He was with us against illegal immigration, togethere with KMB. We togethere, are 97% of the population fighting for our cause against national traitors. A real prime minister  would never support the occupation of his country.

On true reflection,

It is rare for Maltese people to show respect and it was a pleasure watching One TV this afternoon and evening. At the same time, let us not forget that it was the Nationalist party that forgot its own supporters for his injustices they suffered, which could have been caused by the injustices he suffered from Archbishop Gonzi in the first place.

These Gonzi's are the cause of serious trouble and now they have gave birth to a hateful blogger to cause more trouble and also flood us with illegal foreigners against everyone wishes. Mintoff was right to fight these Gonzi's. Inkwiet biss dawn in nies.

While Edward Fenech Adami showed excellent leadership in holding peace.

The funeral of a man who had all the leadership qualities has started for the nations final salute.

Dom Mintoff


"He was a true Nationalist that must be respected and may his spirit to defend our  countries national interest live within the people of his nation. The fatherland - Malta Europe. Land of heros and crosses of merit."

Goodbye Mintoff

When I went to the funeral I found what I expected, a true love and respect from his people. His burning spirit lives inside their soul. What surprised me was that it was an easy goodbye for most of them but I believe it to be so only for one reason... his spirit can still can be felt roaming in the streets. Now, more then ever.
