They’re not just deaf. They’re hard headed. If a useless Labour opposition no longer exists they will invent it. We’ve said what we have to say about the government’s sweeping PfP under the carpet and beyond discussion. Until now answers from the apologista quarters are limited to reminding us of Labour’s position on PfP and deriding the “obsolete” neutrality clause (their interpretation and not that of a constitutional court). They will keep producing this bull – because it is bull, because it is beside the point. Lack of consultation. Ignoring parliament. Failing to mention the damn move in an electoral manifesto. That is the point. And it features nowhere in their answers.
This is a clear example of the sad situation we are in so long as the opposition is feeble. The nationalists and their apologists will go on reminding us what the failed part of the opposition has to say and measure their deeds against a team that is on the fast lane to becoming past history. In the meantime when faced with clear questions from the media (see Times, Independent, MaltaToday) and warning signs that their chosen path to reactivating PfP membership is not so democratic they just evade. They probably secretly pine for Sant’s exit from the political scene. He made it all seem so easy.
And Fausto… at least I expected you not to quote out of context. Dr Mangion speaks of “arrogant behaviour” and refers to the PN government decision of 2008. Just in case you were hoping otherwise.
