Is-sena 2016 se tibqa' mfakkra ghal hafna affarijiet u mhux lanqas ghall-kazijiet fil-politika Maltija li jistghu jissejhu unici.
Wara li l-programm li Salvu Mallia kien jipprezenta fuq TVM, ma giex inkluz fl-iskeda l-gdida ghas-sena ta' wara, dan l-istess Mallia hareg qatta bla habel kontra l-gvern in generali u kontra l-Prim Ministru personalment. It-triq li ha Mallia ma kienitx biss kritika fuq ix-xandir u l-programm tieghu imma wessa l-argument tieghu ghal wiehed politiku partiggjan. S'hemmhekk ma jidhirx li saru affarijiet barra minn normal.
Li ghamel Salvu Mallia u li darras hafna nies inkluz fil-Partit Nazzjonalista, kien li beda juza lingwagg baxx li hasad hafna nies. Dan il-kliem xejn onorevoli minn xi hadd li jrid jasal ghall-istess indirizz, wasal ukoll fl-istess zmien li l-kap tal-PN, Simon Busuttil kien ghamilha cara li kien se jiehu bis-serjeta r-risponsabilta sabiex inaddaf il-politika.
L-iskop ta' din il-pagna m'huwiex biex tikritika l-argumenti ta' Mallia, imma biex turi sa fejn jasal jinzel politikant sabiex iserrah il-kuxjenza tieghu u jpattiha lil min ma jaqbilx mieghu. Il-gudizzju dwar jekk l-ghagir ta' Mallia hux korrett jew le jithalla ghalikom.

Despite mounting internal pressure to take action, the Nationalist Party leadership would neither say whether it dissociated itself nor what it intended to do with regard to comments that were made by former TV presenter-turned candidate Salvu Mallia. The controversy was sparked by a series of posts Mr Mallia uploaded last week on his Facebook account using colourful and even foul language, while hurling abuse at the Labour government and its supporters. … “The least the party could have done was to immediately disassociate itself from such statements and, if necessary, take disciplinary action against Mr Mallia to prevent such an embarrassing incident from repeating itself,” the sources said.
Salvu Mallia, often described as the PN’s “star candidate”, lashed out at the Labour Party and hurled abuse at its supporters using colourful and even foul language. As expected, his outburst raised eyebrows within the PN, including among high-ranking officials. Yet, the PN, and, particularly, its leader, Simon Busuttil, appear too reluctant to take a stand, giving rise to concerns from within of a “weak” leadership. Is it possible Dr Busuttil is happy with the situation? Does he not realise the longer he decides to do something about it the more the damage he would be causing to himself and to his party? Is he resigned to share the same fate as his predecessor who appeared too weak to tackle a vociferous MP?

Mr Mallia's comments also ruffled feathers on the European continent, with the Party of European Socialists releasing a statement calling on PN leader Simon Busuttil to "immediately disown" Mr Mallia's statement that Adolf Hitler was "very progressive". "If Mr Busuttil does not have the courage even to stand up to one of his own candidates who has so clearly crossed the line, then he certainly does not have the necessary attributes to lead Malta's official opposition, never mind to stand for election to government," PES president Sergei Stanishev said. He said it was "tasteless" for a political candidate to invoke Hitler when criticising Joseph Muscat.
The problem for Mallia and the PN is that by his behaviour he is at great risk of not being taken seriously. His very attributes, which he displays so exuberantly, are prompting raised eyebrows and even derision, and make easy targets for attacks on the party. In expressing himself so fiercely against

Salvu Mallia withdrew from a public showdown with the Equality Minister’s husband Patrick Dalli yesterday after being “persuaded” to tone down his approach, this newspaper has learnt. The latest controversy surrounding the presenter-turned-candidate erupted following remarks which he made about Minister Helena Dalli, whom he called “a bitch”. Mr Mallia was reacting to a story published by The Malta Independent which said that her youngest son was put on the State payroll as a member of the Economy Ministry’s secretariat. Aggrieved by the remark, the minister’s husband on Friday challenged the PN candidate to a face-to-face meeting, at Café Cordina in

He (Joseph Muscat) never showed on iota of goodwill since elected as Prime Minister.
Joseph Muscat is an evil man.
I voted Labour in the last five minutes. I went to cast my vote in Birkirkara and in front of me there was Edward Scicluna, today’s Finance Minister. Honestly, I said to myself: “If this guy thinks these guys are good, there must be something to it.” That tipped the balance towards Labour. It was a spur of the moment decision.
