Malta u l-politika

Ittri ċċensurati u punti ta' riflessjoni politika.


Xi kultant ma naghtix tort lill-poplu Malti li jkun mifxul ma jafx x’se jaqbad jemmen, meta jghidulu affarijiet li huma litterament l-oppost ta’ xulxin. Li l-bnedmin ma jaqblux kollha bejniethom hija normali u kif jghidu, “mitt bniedem mitt fehma”. Imma lil’hinn mill-fehmiet personali tal-individwu, hemm il-fatti. Suppost fatt huwa uniku u ma tistax iddawru. Jekk cirku hu tond, ma jistax jigi wiehed u jghid li hu kwadru. Jekk persuna mietet, ma jista jigi hadd u jghid li ghadha mimlija bl-ghomor. Imma sfortunatament f’Malta dan it-tahwid jezisti wkoll. F’din il-pagna hawn diversi dikjarazzjonijiet li huma migbura tnejn tnejn u li jidhru b’mod car li jikkontradixxu lil xulxin. Inhalli f’idejn il-qarrejja biex jiggudikaw huma liema dikjarazzjoni hija korretta. Jekk thossukom imhawdin b’dawn il-konflitti … nikkumpatikom!!

“The Maltese government considers its application of the derogation to be well-founded and within the legal framework of the EU Birds Directive and it is prepared to defend its position even in front of the European Court of Justice.”

“European environment commissioner Stavros Dimas did not mince his words when he spoke at the European Parliament last week, stressing that Malta benefits from no such derogation from the Birds Directive. He even went so far as to describe Malta’s attempts to tinker with regulations as the “perfect example of the ‘misimplementation’ of the Birds Directive”. He also pointed out that what had been agreed between the parties in pre-accession talks was the fact that Malta had, and still has, the right to request a derogation from the directive, as does any EU member state, as long as certain strict conditions are fulfilled and are fully justified. Mr Dimas also highlighted the fact that Malta had not requested any such derogation, but that Malta had instead gone ahead as though there had been a bilateral agreement and without providing any justification for the derogation as required by the directive.”

A forensics team was dispatched on site to look for clues, and a number of witnesses were taken to the police headquarters for questioning.

Shops are selling less and less...

Retail trade continued its downward spiral in July as Malta registered one of the highest drops in the EU, according to the European statistical agency. Retail trade fell by 1.7 per cent when compared to the previous month and 4.2 per cent in relation to July last year. On both counts, Malta was one of the worst performers in the EU. The figures published by Eurostat yesterday show that, on a yearly basis (comparing the performance of a month with the previous year’s month), retail trade has been dropping since March. The decrease peaked in April (6.4 per cent) and although the rate had slowed down in July, shops were still selling less stock than they did last year.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said this morning that he had no idea that Shiv Nair, the Indian business consultant who travelled to Qatar with Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi was blacklisted by the World Bank. “No I did not know he was blacklisted – we were not informed of that,” he told the media.

Intant, Joseph Muscat kien mistoqsi wkoll dwar Shiv Nair. Muscat qal li l-gvern m’għandu ebda kuntratt miegħu, għalkemm żied li kien hemm l-intenzjoni li toħroġ letter of appointment u din ma kinetx esegwita. Muscat sostna li hu kien konxju li kien hemm kwistjoni ta’ blacklisting fuq Shiv Nair.
