From the Times:
Those people who do not vote in this election, as well as those who vote for Alternattiva Demokratika, will be contributing to the election of the Malta Labour Party, PN leader Lawrence Gonzi told a televised press conference this evening.
Dr Gonzi was replying to a question put by The Times during a political debate organised by the Broadcasting Authority on TVM.
Asked what decision he would take if the MLP had to win 32 seats in parliament, with the PN winning 31and AD winning two parliamentary seats. Dr Gonzi replied that AD would form a coalition government with the MLP. He said people who do not vote and those who vote for AD would be indirectly electing the MLP to office.
So will someone explain what we can call that feeling of deep disgust after reading this kind of propaganda? I’d rather have Daphne call me stupid and immature any day… at least she says what she thinks. Gonzi wants me to think that I am intelligent but then insults me by throwing this rubbish at my face. It’s Eddie Fenech Adami at the Luxol Grounds all over again. Sorry Daphne but this is not a strategy it is suicidal campaigning. Let’s face it… who is Gonzi trying to convince back to the fold? The diehard nationalists who would vote for him come what may? Not really… he wants people who would vote AD to “see the light” and vote PN (and note the reason why… not because PN is good but because MLP is bad).
Anton would say figura di merda. He would try to “stendere un velo pietoso”. Unfortunately it is the tragicomic theme on which politics is run. We have an election based on bad choices. The persons mainly responsible for this bad choice want us to confirm them in power for another 5 years. And they have the guts to go on TV and gloat about this non-choice of theirs.
Is-sewwa jirbah zgur. Xoghol. Gustizzja. LIberta. Solidarjeta. Dejjem… kullimkien. Fiducja. and now… You’re Lumped with Us and better get used to it.
Thanks to Gonzi’s theatrics I am back to undecided. I am back to the possibility of not going to the ballot after all. There. Here’s a one man poll for you. As Holmes (Sherlock) likes to repeat, one man is unpredictable… it’s the crowd that’s easy to fathom. Gonzi needs to see quickly that the undecided are made up of the only individuals stuck between the two crowds of spineless flagwavers. Wake up and smell the floating voter…. and stop insulting him.
