BREXIT UNMASKS E.U. ARROGANCE


'THE MALTA EXPERIENCE'



“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.”
– Aristotle
That's it! The quiet real people of Britain rose up against an arrogant, aloof and untouchable political class and contemptuous Brussels elite.

So, Britain has broken free from the arrogant European Union dictatorship! Surely, they won't see another stream of largely middle-class activists demanding that the will of the public be kept in check or told how to think by hapless Eurocrats. It surely deserved better than to be treated as a mere offshore province by an unelected, anti-democratic, corrupt pan-European bureaucracy. The British people have had enough of being abused by arrogant fools governing from a dysfunctional EU in Brussels.

What could be better? Britain out of the undemocratic EU at last!

As Eddy Privitera aptly noted on Brexit: 'This may be the only opportunity for the British people to decide on who should govern them whether, those elected by them or by unelected foreign bureaucrats.' “As I have been asking for years, we must now have the same referendum in France and EU countries,” wrote France's far-right leader Marine Le Pen. Why can't dear Malta be afforded the same opportunity?

It is not the EU philosophy that the crowd (the people) can decide its fate”, said Schultz. So, are you so arrogant to as to want to decide the fate of the people of Malta, Mr. Schultz? If we pretend inferiority, we would be encouraging his arrogance. Is this perhaps the adopted policy of the Maltese prime minister, considering that he and Schultz are bosom friends? Does it really come to shunning the people (who, after all, elected him) so much as to not let the people decide their own fate?

However, this should come as no surprise as Malta has experienced more than its fair share of EU meddling, hypocrisy and arrogance. Malta has always been bullied, even before its accession into the EU club, and, perhaps due to its inherited and inherent colonial mentality, has always succumbed to foreign influences and interferences.

Don't we remember how in 2004, former president of the European Commission, Romano Prodi had, from behind the scenes, pushed Malta to join the European Union. “Everybody understood that to have a ‘no’ from Malta could have been also a defeat for us (the EU),” the European leader had said. No bother of the Maltese citizens, the bottom line is the fattening of the greedy Union!
But a more classical example of arrogant imposition had ensued when, in 2008, Gunther Verheugen, former European Commissioner for Industry, (now confronted in the VW car scandal), had gone overboard and threatened Dr. George Vella, (then MLP deputy leader) that he would do everything to ensure that the Malta Labour Party would lose the election if he continued to oppose Malta's accession to the EU! How low can they get? And then we 'honour' him by bestowing him with the decoration “Gieh ir-Repubblika”! How long are we going to keep kowtowing this corrupt EU? Sorry, couldn't find a stronger word than 'bootlickers', in spite of the fact that even Malta sometimes does its best to use loopholes to dodge EU regulations!

And the ousting of ex-Commissioner John Dalli by Barroso, the ex-president of the European Commission (and now chairman and a senior adviser at the international arm of Goldman Sachs International); “You have half an hour to resign” the boastful emperor roared. It is evident that the arrogance of Barroso has been inherited and is seeping through the ranks of the whole European Union.

And the arrogant hypocrisy continues.

First rudely comes the rejection of Dr. Silvio Camilleri, Malta's Chief Justice, as Malta’s second judge to the EU General Court.

Then follows the blatant rejection of the government's nomination of Dr. Toni Abela for the European Court of Auditors.

Once we nominated these two finest Maltese gentlemen, it is an insult to our country that they were rejected. It is our national pride that was at stake here and an arrogant humiliation to us all. They both could have fulfilled their jobs properly with integrity, dignity and honesty. Anyhow, the EU's loss is our gain as definitely it does not deserve them as it seems that what the EU prefers is more in line with criminally-convicted lobbyists.

And goodness knows what would result now that we have Malta's nominee for the EU Court of Auditors defending a minister exposed in the Panama Papers scandal to escape a no-confidence motion!.

It is no secret that the EU chieftains always were and still are on a power trip, instructing countries what leaders to elect. Malta is no exception. Didn't we experience this kind of arrogant meddling in 2008, when Labour leadership contenders fumed over Schultz's endorsement of Muscat and lodged a formal complaint to the Party of European Socialists of Schultz's offensive, totally irregular and highly unethical interference. It had been reported that, at least, such other proposed unethical endorsements had been stopped. As expected, the EU never condemned this arrogant 'Big Brother' meddling in Malta's internal affairs. Of course, how could it, if the whole EU is infested with such corrupt abuses and interference in internal affairs of member states and such abuse is inherent in its rotten soul! And was it ever considered whether Schultz's audacity consisted of an infringement of our Foreign Interference Act? Does it still exist?

And, quite sadly and disastrously, this arrogance has infiltrated into our political arena and our leaders. How could any Maltese 'thinking' quack not observe and comment on our prime minister's unilateral, factional and unsolicited declaration: 'EU referendum for Malta? It would be suicide'! What a condemning statement!

Why are most people such slow thinkers? Can't we realise what this involves? Firstly; his thinking is given away in that he is so sure that the people would vote for exit from the EU. Secondly; his opinion does not necessarily reflect the general wishes of the majority of Maltese citizens and consequently one may rightly remark that he is leading only his 'minority', and thirdly; the arbitrary denial of hearing the people's voice through a referendum is akin to a dictatorial attitude. Our prime minister should worry more about what confidence the people have in their own opinion than in his. Such serious considerations of expressed arrogance should not escape the attention of us all. Was the Malta prime minister perhaps looking forward to his extended EU presidency?

Totally unlike what's happening in my country, sheepish Malta, most European countries, including Germany, Italy and France are all under pressure to hold referenda. Malta, still doggedly dreaming of glorification in its EU Presidency has been denied the hearing of its people's voice of their aspirations. Hopefully, the EU won't endure till then!

And finally. The cherry on the cake!

A written letter of complaint, accompanied by a list of signatories, by a group of Vittoriosa (Malta) residents and addressed directly to Mrs. Emily O'Reilly, European Ombudsman, went totally ignored by the self-nominated 'Europe for the People'!.

Well, none expected any immediate intervention. However the lack of even a decent acknowledgment highly exposed the disdain, haughtiness and arrogance which has even permeated the lower levels of administration of the European Union.

Let's not condone simply minds, as all we would get in return would be simple pleasures!

The strength of nations is their masses and their system. I want to feel well by being Maltese in Malta!

Il-G.W.U. tal-Haddiema jew tal-Partit?


“L'ghaqdiet tal-haddiema ghandhom kull opportunita li jbiddlu, mhux biss sitwazzjoni ndustrijali u jirbhu gliediet importanti ghal-haddiema waqt konflitti, imma wkoll opportunitajiet li jbiddlu l-gvern tal-gurnata.”
Arthur Scargill


Forsi xi whud jahsbu li din hi mistoqsija zejda, ghax hafna jifhmu u bir-ragun kollu jippretendu li din isimha maghha, “General Workers Union”, jigifieri ‘Ghaqda tal-Haddiema’.  Imma fid-dell tal-konflitti li pajjizna ghaddej minnhom illum, din hi mistoqsija tassew f’waqtha u serjissima u li kull haddiem ghandu jixtarra sewwa.

Dak li hu zgur hu li kieku l-Moviment P.L. (aktar Progressiv Liberali milli Partit Laburista) li llum ghandna fil-gvern, illum baqa t-tarka tal-haddiem u zamm il-principji socjalisti li dejjem kien imsejjes fuqhom, allura wiehed bi dritt ihoss li din hi mistoqsija superfluwa.  Imma jahasra dan mhux il-kaz!
 
Il-politika tal-Gvern prezenti tilfet u rmiet ghal kollox kull principju socjalista li suppost trawmet fih u mhux ta’ b’xejn li kull laburist genwin qed jistqarr li dan mhux il-gvern li tella hu.   Politika bhal dik imsejjha “pro-business” ma hi ta’ ebda beneficcju ghal-haddiem Malti, anzi ghal-kuntrarju tinkoraggixxi l-privatizazzjoni u tagevola u tqawwi l-kapitalisti Maltin.  “Pro-business” tfisser “Privatizazzjoni” li tfisser “Kapitalizmu”. Mhux kulhadd jaf li l-kumpaniji mhumiex xi intraprizi tal-karita, imma qeghdin hemm biss biex jaghmlu profit minn fuq il-haddiem?   Zgur li mhux dan riedet il-maggoranza tal-votanti Maltin!  Allura, wiehed jistaqsi, jekk il-'G.W.U.' qed tappoggja din l-atitudni u politika, mhux hi wkoll hija hatja ta’ tradiment tal-haddiema Maltin  Il-liberta politika minghajr ugwaljanza economika m'hi xejn ghajr pretenzjoni, falzita u gidba u l-haddiema ma jridu ebda gideb!

Qed naraw ruxxmata ta’ haddiema barranin dehlin go pajjizna bla ebda razan u jisirqu xoghol il-haddiem Malti, u dawn mhux biss minn pajjizi membri tal-Unjoni Ewropea (li bilfors irridu nitqannew bihom) imma wkoll minn pajjizi mbieghda li pajjizna ma’ tamtx ghandu relazzjoni maghhom, bhal; Filippini, Russi, Arab u Asjatici ohra. U dan minbarra l-eluf ta' immigranti illegali u klandestini li Malta marbuta li tilqa bir-regoli tal-Unjoni Ewropea. Imma jahasra, kulhadd rieqed raqda helwa, sahansitra l-imprendituri Maltin li lanqas biss qed jindunaw li l-intraprizi taghom qed jiffaccjaw theddida min intraprizi u korporazzjonijiet barranin u internazzjonali.  Ma nafx kif tara dan il-G.W.U. Imma ma nahsibx li dan hu ta' beneficcju ghal-ekonomija Maltija u wisq inqas ghal-haddiem Malti.  Bizzejjed wiehed ihares ftit kemm mijiet ta’ haddiema Maltin ghandha t-Tarzna ta’ Malta.  Il-G.W.U. kuntenta b’dawn ic-cirkostanzi ghal-haddiem Malti?
 
Nistghu ‘llum nghidu li l-GWU tirrapprezenta s-sahha ekonomika maqghuda  tal-haddiema Maltin, li fl-affarnett hija l-aqwa u l-aktar sigurta socjali diretta li l-haddiem jista jkollu?

Wisq drabi qed ninnotaw li l-medja tal-’Union’ qed taghzel triq taparsi tal-’verita’ li toghgob lil-mexxejja politici taghna.  Jista jkun li hemm indhil u pressjoni minn naha tal-membri tal-gvern u jekk dan hu ‘l-kaz, allura dan mhux kaz ta’ qerq u tradiment tal-haddiema Maltin?

Minbarra dan, kien xokk ghalina (kif nahseb ghal-haddiema kollha) li nisimghu akkuzi (li genwinament nifhem li huma bla ebda bazi) ta’ profitti mill-istess ‘Union’ minn fuq dahar il-haddiem!

Hemm bzonn li noqghodu attenti ghall-appelli falzi, u aktar minn hekk din l-ghaqda tal-haddiema ghandha taghmel kritika interna taghha nnifisha dwar l-onesta u d-devozzjoni genwina taghha lejn l-interessi veri tal-haddiema Maltin. Hija tassew hasra li naraw numru dejjem jikber ta' laburisti genwini jinnotaw kif il-Partit Laburista u l-'G.W.U.' fallew mizerjament li jghatu appogg konkret l-interessi tal-haddiema li huma suppost qed jirraprezentaw.

Ghandi tama qawwija li ghad naraw moviment maghqud tal-haddiema fejn il-haddiema jkunu aktar b'sahhitom. Dan ghad ikun japplika wkoll ghal-'unions' tal-haddiema.

Meta jinduna li jista jahseb, jista l-bniedem jinheles mis-servitu u jsib il-veru helsien!

Deputat Laburista jagħti l-aqwa raġunijiet għaliex il-Maltin u l-Għawdxin għandhom jitfgħu ’l barra lil Joseph Muscat u l-klikka tiegħu mill-gvern.

Ara kemm diġà nkiteb u għad irid jinkiteb fil-ħames ġimgħat li ġejjin biex ikun spjegat għaliex Muscat u l-kikka tiegħu għandhom jitqalftu minn Kastilja. Inħossni ċert, iżda, li ħadd ma kien, jew se jkun, aktar preċiż u konċiż minn dak li kiteb id-Deputat Laburista Godfrey Farrugia bħal-lum ġimgħa f'ittra li fiha informa lil Muscat li kien se jitlaq minn Whip tal-Gvern tiegħu. F'dik l-ittra qallu wkoll għaliex ħa dik id-deċiżjoni.

Dawn huma siltiet imprezzabbli li jiddeskrivu b'mod elokwenti x'kienu tassew dawn l-aħħar erba' snin tal-aktar gvern korrott f'pajjiżna. Aqrawhom sew, xtarruhom tajjeb u mexxuhom ma' kemm tistgħu nies.

■ Kont xammejt l-aġenda moħbija ta' dawk li jħufu qribek, persuni li int għandek fiduċja fihom.

■ ...ikolli nistqarr li żlaqna fin-niexef għaliex it-tmexxija naqset milli tkun matura.

■ ... meta bdejna niġġustifikaw l-iżbalji u l-ħazin insejħulu tajjeb, hemmhekk bdiet storja oħra.

■ L-OPM (l-Uffiċċju tal-Prim Ministru) spiċċa jieħu aktar u aktar it-tmexxija f'idejh anki meta spiċċa fid-dlam taħt id-dell tal-iskandlu internazzjonali tal-Panama.

■ Il-logħba tal-illużjoni qatt ma għoġbitni, aħseb u ara l-intriċċi tal-logħba Makkjaveljana, politika post-verità, ipokrita jew anti-verità.

■ F'ċerti riformi ta' twaqqif ta' awtoritajiet stennejt li l-politiku m'għandux jibqa' ċ-ċentru ta' kollox, iżda kellu jitbiegħed.

■ L-għemil ħażin li ma ġiex rimedjat f'waqtu, ħalla riperkussjonijiet li tefgħuna wiċċna mal-ħajt.

Tlifna l-fibra morali. Ma nrexxilniex ngħaqqdu lill-poplu.

■ Wasalna f'punt li qed nagħtu immaġini ħażina lil Malta tagħna anki barra minn xtutna u saħansitra waqt il-Presidenza tal-Unjoni Ewropea.

■ L-allegazzjonijiet li saru dan l-aħħar weġġgħuni – weġġgħuni għaliex ngħożż lil pajjiżi.

■ It-tama tiegħi hi li nġib it-tmexxija f'sensiha u tieqaf tuża lill-poplu għall-protezzjoni tal-poter tagħha.

■ Il-fiduċja tal-poplu ma kellha qatt tiġi traduta u użata biex tkun imbuttata l-aġenda tal-ftit li jidher ċar li m'għandhomx l-interess nazzjonali f'qalbhom u wisq inqas f'moħħhom.

Żewġ elezzjonijiet ‘tewmin’

1998*

■ Id-Deputat Laburista Dom Mintoff jattakka, fil-Parlament u barra, lill-gvern tal-Prim Ministru Alfred

Sant għall-mod li bih kien qed jitmexxa l-gvern, u jivvota kontrih fil-Parlament.

■ Il-kameras ta' Net Television isammru lill-Maltin mal-iscreens tat-TV bit-trasmissjonijiet diretti ta' konferenzi stampa u intervisti mid-Deputat Laburista Dom Mintoff.

■ George Abela, eks konsulent tal-PM Alfred Sant, jitkellem fil-konferenza ġenerali tal-MLP u wara jħabbar ir-riżenja tiegħu minn Deputy Leader tal-Labour.

■ Alfred Sant kostrett iħabbar l-elezzjoni ġenerali ħafna qabel żmienha.

2017

■ Marlene Farrugia, Deputat Laburista, tattakka lill-gvern għall-mod li bih kien qed jitmexxa minn Joseph Muscat, tivvota kontrih fil-Parlament u eventwalment ma tibqax fil-Partit Laburista.

■ Il-kameras ta' NET Television iwaħħlu lill-Maltin mal-iscreens tat-TV bi trasmissjoni diretta dakinhar li tħabbar min hu s-sid ta' Egrant. Filmati storiċi ta' sid Pilatus Bank ħiereġ bil-bagalji u bil-Kummissarju sejjer għal fenkata.

■ Godfrey Farrugia, il-Whip tal-Grupp Laburista, iħabbar fuq facebook li kien irriżenja mill-kariga u jxandar ittra iebsa dwar it-tmexxija ta' Muscat.

■ Joseph Muscat iħabbar elezzjoni ġenerali sena qabel żmienha.

*NOTA: Dik l-Elezzjoni Ġenerali kienet imsejħa minn Alfred Sant wara li Joseph Muscat kien għamel kampanja qalila fil-partit u fil-kitbiet tiegħu biex Sant jagħti tagħlima xierqa lil Duminku Mintoff!

Bl-Għawdxin ma jidħaqx

Forsi ndunajtu mill-kitbiet tiegħi li għandi ċertu soft spot għal Għawdex u n-nies tiegħu. Għawdex tassew hu ġawhra għall-Maltin kollha u l-Għawdxin huma nies li jilħqilhom.

B'dawn il-kwalitajiet inħoss li l-Għawdxin fehmu sew x'inhu Joseph Muscat u x'valuri jirrappreżenta. Bihom ma jidħaqx, aktar u aktar wara li esperjenzawh.

F'diskors li għamel f'Għawdex ftit tal-jiem ilu, kellu l-kuraġġ isemmi l-proġett tal-mina bejn iż-żewġ gżejjer wara li, kapriċċożament, tellef snin prezzjużi minn fuq proġett li l-gvern ta' qabel kien diġà għamel passi sostanzjali fil-fażi ta' studju f'livell għoli.

Naturalment dan għaliex issa lejliet elezzjoni. Iżda meta ħames snin ilu l-gvern tal-PN kien qed jaħdem sod dwaru, il-Labour u l-qaddejja tiegħu tgħidx kemm għajru u insulentaw lill-Ministri Giovanna Debono u Chris Said li kienu qed jimbuttaw l-idea.

Araw x'kienet qalet l-orizzont tas-26 ta' Mejju 2012: “... din iċ-ċajta goffa intenzjonata ekslusivament biex tagħti palata lilu (lill-Gvern tal-PN) joħroġ mill-ħama fejn hu midfun sax-xfar t'għajnejh...”

It-tweġiba tal-Għawdxin, inħossni konvint, se tkun waħda b'saħħitha lejn min wiegħdu s-sema fl-art u mbagaħd sab li kien biss duħħan a la Muscat.

Stagno

Fil-midja soċjali l-ġimgħa l-oħra kienet qed iddur u tagħqad kwotazzjoni tan-notorju Karl Stagno Navarra li, bejn wieħed u ieħor, kienet tgħid hekk: Għall-Partit Nazzjonalista staqsu lili għaliex jien ħdimt fil-midja tiegħu.

It-tweġiba qasira u xotta tiegħi hi din:.... u għal Karl Stagno Navarra staqsu lili. Nafu sew u mill-qrib ħafna għaliex ħadem miegħi għal bosta snin.

Għadni mbellah kif Muscat jaqbad nies tal-kwalità ta’ Stagno Navarra u jpoġġihom f'pożizzjonijiet importanti. Iżda mbagħad niftakar f’Cyrus Engerer u nifhem kollox.

Shame on you Joseph. Tabilħaqq.

Tibqax ċass

Żmien il-paroli spiċċa. Issa jgħoddu biss il-fatti u l-azzjonijiet. Kulħadd jaf b'xi ħadd li jonqsu aktar konvinċiment biex jivvota kontra dan il-gvern maħmuġ u korrott li għandna. Agħmlu lil din il-persuna t-target tagħkom; kellmuha b'għaqal u prudenza sa ma tipperswaduha.

Dak li qal Godfrey Farrugia hu ideali biex jgħinkom fl-argumenti tagħkom.

KIF DEJJAQTUNI !


Kif xbajt fuq li xbajt nisma elf stupitagni fuq persuni ndividwali, specjalment fuq; Zeppi Muscat u Xmun Busuttil. Dawn min jahbtu? Min huma dawn? Forsi Mintoff u Borg Olivier? Zgur li le, ghaliex naf tajjeb kemm dawn kienu jirrispettaw lil xulxin minkejja li dawn kienu f'kampijiet politici opposti; Socjalisti u Konservattivi. Kemm niftakar sew kemm irrabja u canfar Mintoff lil certu medja meta dawn fettlilhom jikkritikaw lil-Borg Olivier fuq il-hajja privata personali tieghu. Dik kienet il-vera rgulija! Dak iz-zmien il-mexxejja taghna kienu jafu xi jfisser il-kliem; edukazzjoni socjali, etika u rgulija. Imma 'llum, x'sitwazzjoni ta' hasra!

Nista jien inkun Socjalist minghajr ma nkun Laburist? Ghala le? U nista jien inkun Kapitalist minghajr ma nkun Nazzjonalist? Tithawwad biex twiegeb hux? Ma ntikx tort, ghax illum baqa biss paroli vojt, weghdiet fierha galore u kulhadd, biex jipprova jingieb ma kulhadd sar 'centru', Centru Lemin jew Centru Xellug. Fejnhom il-principji tal-ideal politiku? Jistghu xi darba s-Socjalizmu u l-Kapitalizmu jinghaqda taht xettru wiehed? Kemm ser idumu l-politici taghna jibilghu u jbellghu mzazen lil-poplu?

Hija tassew hasra u tal-biki li hawn go Malta taghna ghandna din is-sahta ta' 'caqlembuta politika', li qed dejjem tirrenjja bis-sahha taz-zewg partiti politici dominanti kbar? Dawn, ghax tassew hekk jaqblilhom, hallew u sahhnu il-qasma fil-poplu taghna, fi klassijiet u sahansitra f'lokalitajiet maghrufa ghal-linja politika taghhom. Immaginaw ftit din il-povra gzira taghna li lanqas ghanda popolazzjoni ta' farka ta' biss belt (u lanqas rahal) fl-Ewroppa u li niftahru li hija Stat, jinholqu tant differenzi bejn il-klassijiet. Imma x'tort ittina jekk il-kapijiet politici taghna hekk jaghmlu u jhegguna naghmlu? Siehbi. inti mal-homor? Le! Mela inti mal-blu! Le, lanqas! Hi.., mela inti x'int? Mistoqsijiet banali ta' poplu stupidu! JIEN MA' JIEN XEJN GHAJR MOHH MIFTUH!! Inhares, nisma u nizen u nara fejn ser inpoggi riglejja. Inhares lura, nisma x'qed jinghad u fl-ahhar nizen min tassew hu l-aktar kredibbli fi kliemu u f'ghemilu.

Bl-Ingliz ghandna il-famuza espressjoni, “What's in a name?”, li fi kliem hafif tfisser “Xi jfisser li jkollok isem?”. U jekk din nistaqsuha liz-zewg partiti politici popolari taghna, naccertakom li l-ebda partit m'ghandu direzzjoni dritta u onesta lejn xi ideal politiku. Tixjir ta' bnadar, ghajjat, capcip u kant kemm trid, imma fejn baqghet is-serjeta tal-hsieb? Kollha jwarrbu kollox biex joghgbu l-mentalita fqira tal-maggoranza tal-poplu, u sahansitra jinqdew b'tghajjir u zeblieh lil-haddiehor. Noqghodu attenti ghax ic-capcip tal-boloh huwa biss ibbuwjar! Jien ghamilt xi zmien nippartecipa regolarment fuq programm politiku televiziv u dejjem, minghajr waqfien, kont nirrepeti: “Isimu imma temmnunhix. Imma uzaw mohhkom u morru araw fil-fatti dwar dan li qed nghid hux veru u sagrosant!” Ma nafx kemm hadu din it-taghlima!

Jekk niflu sew l-origini taz-zewg partiti ewlenin taghna naraw li dawn kellhom gheruq stabbiliti diversi u opposti li dejjem kienu l-gwidi tal-politika mistqarra u pprattikata minnhom, jigifieri dik socjalista u dik kapitalista. Imma llum kwazi m'hemmx x'taghzel! Minkejja li t-tnejn jghidu li huma favur il-haddiem, dan xejn ma jidher minn hadd minnhom, fil-prattika. Kif tista tkun Nazzjonalist u twarrab l-interessi tan-nies tal-flus jew teqred jew twarrab ir-reghba tas-settur privat? Jew kif tista tkun Laburist u twarrab il-principji socjalisti u tmur u ssir 'pro-business' jew ahjar favur l-interessi konflingenti kontra l-haddiema? Jew inkella tiftahar li tiftah aktar il-bieb ghal-haddiema barranin b'kompetizzjoni ma' haddiema Maltin? Ma gbajniex nisimghu il-frazi iebsa (kif kienet anki kkwotata sahansitra fil-gurnal tal-Ghaqda tal-Haddiema); 'Jekk ma' joghgbikx itlaq, haddiema barranin insib kemm irrid!' Jien personalment, ma rridx dan it-tip ta' Partit tal-Haddiema! Naturalment lanqas irrid Partit ibbazat fuq l-interessi tal-hekk imsejjha klassi ta' fuq jew ahjar dik ipprivileggata.

Siehbi qum minn hemm u ahseb u thalli l-hadd imexxik minn imniehrek aktar. Niftakar kemm xi hadd ikkwota tajjeb is-sehem tal-elezzjonijiet, fejn qal: 'Il-poplu aktar jivvota ghal xi hadd ghax ma' jridx lil-haddiehor!' Fiha x'tahseb din Salv! Xi tghid!!

MALTA JIXIRQILHA AHJAR!
