Malta u l-politika

Ittri ċċensurati u punti ta' riflessjoni politika.




Kulhadd kien jistenna tmexxija ahjar mill-Partit Nazzjonalista fil-gvern, kemm dawk li jappogjaw lill-PN kif ukoll il-kritici tieghu. Meta l-PN ipprezenta ruhu bhala s-salvatur tal-futur ta’ dan il-pajjiz, liema prezentazjoni dejjem kienet wahda li tolqot l-ghajn u perswazziva, wiehed ftit seta’ kellu ghalfejn imaqdar il-vizjoni Nazzjonalista. Kien partit b’idejat godda, friski u progressivi immexxi minn kap li deher herqan li jwettaq tibdil minn fuq s’isfel fil-hajja Maltija. Dan kien fl-1987. Ghaddew hafna snin minn dakinhar u l-istennija ghall-bidla kbira ghall-ahjar ittapnet minn fallimenti wiehed wara l-iehor li gabu l-kolass tal-aspettattivi kbar tal-poplu Malti. Il-fallimenti tal-Partit Nazzjonalista ma kienux f’qasam wiehed imma f’firxa wiesa ta’ oqsma li b’xi mod jew iehor laqtu lil kull wiehed u wahda minna.


Vera li l-kelma innifisha “falliment” hija kelma iebsa, imma l-provi li gejjin ma jhallu l-ebda dubju dwar ir-rizultati tal-politika Nazzjonalista kif imwettqa l-ewwel taht Dr. Fenech Adami imbaghad taht Dr. Lawrence Gonzi. Il-fallimenti Nazzjonalisti johorgu minn fatti ta’ arroganza, inkompetenza, nuqqas ta’ ghaqal, decizjonijiet zbaljati, abbuzi, gideb, nuqqas ta’ rispett u aspetti ohra negattivi fil-politika Nazzjonalista li jhammru wicc il-Maltin mal-kumplament tad-dinja.


Jekk wiehed ghandux ikompli jhalli dan it-tharbit sejjer hija decizjoni kbira li l-votant Malti ghandu jiehu meta jigi mghajjat sabiex jiddeciedi l-futur ta’ Malta ghal-hames snin li jkunu gejjin. Meta wiehed ipoggi bilqeghda biex jindika fid-dokument tal-vot il-preferenza tieghu, ma jistax ma jiftakarx x’ghaddejna minnu taht Gvernijiet Nazzjonalisti mill-1987 s’issa.


Naf li Nazzjonalisti akkaniti ma jiehdux gost li l-fallimenti tal-PN jigu mperca, imma l-fatti li gejjin ma gewx ivvintati minn imma huma fallimenti Nazzjonalisti maghmula minn Gvern Nazzjonalista u mill-partit innifsu u kollha gew esperjenzati mill-poplu Malti.


L-ezempji li gejjin huma cari bizzejjed. Indikat ezempju wiehed fuq kull kaz imma hemm hafna aktar ezempji ghal min irid ikabbar il-feriti tal-PN.


Fejn falla l-Gvern Nazzjonalista?

The 1992 – 1996 administration was in fact pathetic – Dr. Joe Fenech ex Ministru tal-Gustizzja, The Sunday Times 1.4.2001


Falla meta halla anarkija shiha fil-habs

Josette Bickle ta' 42 sena mill-Belt kienet ikkundannata 12-il sena ħabs u mmultata €23,000 wara li nstabet li bejn l-2006 u l-2008 ittraffikat id-droga eroina fil-Faċilita' Korrettiva ta' Kordin. … L-Imħallef Michael Mallia fis-sentenza tiegħu qal ma hemmx dubju li dan ir-reat huwa wieħed serju u jimmina direttament l-istituzzjoni li suppost għandha sservi ta' korrezzjoni għal min jiżbalja fis-soċjeta'. Pero, qal li l-preokkupazzjoni tal-Qorti hi għal fatt li Josette Bickle setgħet taġixxi b'impunita' għal sentejn sħaħ taħt għajnejn il-gwardjani u d-diriġienti tal-ħabs. Hija impossibli li dawn ma kienu jafu x'kien għaddej aktar u aktar meta t-teħid tad-droga kien isir fiċ-ċelel fejn ir-riħa kienet tinfirex fil-kurituri fejn kien ikun hem mil-gwarjani. In-numru kbir ta' visiti permessi lil Josette Bickle bil-kontra tal-priġunieri l-oħra u l-mod faċli lid-droga kienet tiġi fil-pusses tagħha u tiddaħħal fid-diviżjoni ma jistax ma jindikax kollużjoni ma' l-awtoritajiet, qal l-Imħallef. “Hija ta' tkexkix tisma' xhud jgħid li d-droga fil-ħabs kienet tant faċli li l-konsenja tagħha ġiet deskritta bħala “door to door” mentri fuq barra trid tiġri minn post għal ieħor biex issibha. Din il-Qorti wisq tissuspetta li din il-kollużjoni testendi ben oltre l-konfini tal-ħabs għax minkejja li tneħħa d-direttur ta' dak iż-żmien, il-problema xorta għadha hemm u llum għadna kemm qrajna r-rapport tal-Kummissjoni Nazzjonali għad-Droga, Alkoħol u Dependenzi oħra li 41% tal-priġunieri huma tossicidipendenti,” tenna l-Imħallef. 15 ta' Diċembru, 2011  15:26 CET
