You are always better off with a Nationalist Government.
Hekk qal l-oraklu!! Ezattament Robert Arrigo MP Nazzjonalista, fl-artiklu tieghu fThe Malta Independent tat-30 taDicembru 2005. Kien artiklu bhas-soltu tieghu jghidilna kemm morna, ghadna u se nibqghu sejrin tajjeb taht Gvern Nazzjonalista. L-onorevoli Arrigo ghandu kull dritt jaghmel elogji waqt li jhares lejn il-mera imma naccertah li l-utopja li jahseb li qeghdin nghixu fiha ma tezistix hlief fl-imhuh ta dawk il-ftit li ghax qeghdin tajbin allura jahsbu li kulhadd bhalhom.
Il-Maltin qeghdin jghixu tajjeb taht Gvern Nazzjonalista? Mhemmx ghalfejn tiehdu il-kelma tieghi jew tal-Partit Laburista. Imma zgur ma tistax tghalaq ghajnejk quddiem dikjarazzjonijiet tal-GRTU, Dr. Lawrence Gonzi, The Malta Independent, Alternattiva Demokratika, John Dalli, UHM, The Times, Daphne Caruana Galizia, il-Kummissjoni Nazzjonali tal-Familja u The Sunday Times. Zgur ma tistax tghidu li dawn ghandhom agenda politika favur il-Partit Laburista.
The traditional commercial gainers of the Christmas season, hoteliers, restaurateurs and retailers, say they do not have much to be jolly about this year.
The Times 23.12.2005
The 2005 festive season was one of the toughest ever for the entertainment industry. The Sunday Times 1.1.2006
Business during the Christmas period was worse than expected for half the retailers interviewed.
Kumment: fl-aqwa zmien ghan-negozju, il-bejgh sejjer lura. U ilu sejjer lura s-snin.
DR. LAWRENCE GONZI
It is true that many people are fed up with the present state of things, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi admitted yesterday.
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi yesterday issued another warning that sacrifices will be inevitable
The Times 24.10.2005
Kumment: Kuntrarju tal-istampa li jrid ipingi Robert Arrigo, il-Prim Ministru stess jammetti li l-poplu mdejjaq bdin is-sitwazzjoni. U biex jitfa aktar melh fuq il-ferita, jkompli jghidilna li rridu naghmlu aktar sagrificcji.
If the government wants another term, it needs to come down from the pedestal on which it sits and start paying attention to what people are saying.
The rich are getting poorer and the richer they are, the poorer they are becoming.
Kumment: Araw il-problemi mifruxa fuq diversi oqsma li sahansitra qeghdin jaffettwaw bil-kbir lis-sinjuri ahseb u ara l-haddiem iz-zghir kif inhu mghaffeg.
The Maltese have become poorer since 1999 if one had to factor inflation and demographic changes into the latest official economic statistics, according to Alternattiva Demokratika. Scrutinising the recently published economic figures from the National Statistics Office for the quarter ending June 2005, the Green Party said the economy was effectively in a coma.
The Times 12.9.2005
Kumment: Statistika tal-Gvern stess turi li l-poplu Malti sejjer lura. Din mhux xi invenzjoni ta xi partit politiku imma informazzjoni moghtija mill-Gvern.
Why is there such a feeling of grave despondency in the air? Some are feeling that this country has stopped functioning. There is not the excitement of new activity. There is not the challenge of new targets. There is not the comfort of a supportive infrastructure. There is not the reassurance of a clear direction.
The Sunday Times 4.9.2005
Kumment: John Dalli huwa membru parlamentari Nazzjonalista u sa ftit zmien ilu Ministru tal-Finanzi. Kemm il-darba stqarr li qieghed ilissen il-karba tal-poplu fil-kitbiet tieghu.
UNION HADDIEMA MAGHQUDIN
The UHM has called on the government and all the social partners to start taking the decisions needed in order that the country can begin to emerge from the current bleak social and economic scenario.
Kumment: Union li l-poplu jassoccjaha mal-Partit Nazzjonalista fil-hidma taghha turina l-qaghda hazina li l-pajjiz jinsab fiha.
The country is going through difficult times and, despite the advances made in some sectors, the way ahead still looks tough.
The Times 16.7.2005
Kumment: Forcina ohra tal-Partit Nazzjonalista tammetti z-zmienijiet difficli li qeghdin ghaddejjin minnhom.
DAPHNE CARUANA GALIZIA
Its not just economic gloom and doom, but goes beyond that a profound ennui like the dead, still air before a thunderstorm cracks. People are nervous and fed up. Theyre sick of each other and theyre even sick of themselves. Theyre feeling stuck and trapped. Its a negative zeitgeist, and I have no doubt that the general unhappiness in the air is a contributing factor to private unhappiness and the collapse like skittles of marriage after marriage. You would have to be completely insensitive not to pick it up. Its the kind of mood that, several decades ago, would have propelled a country into war to snap the stalemate.
Kumment: Deskrizzjoni eccellenti kif taf taghmel bhas-soltu Daphne, imma din id-darba minghajr incensar ghall-PN.
NATIONAL FAMILY COMMISSION
More than one-in-five (21 per cent) of all children live below the poverty line . Nearly 15 per cent of the population is at risk of being below the poverty line . Figures show that 41 per cent of those who are poor are also unemployed . Only 21 per cent have a social life. People living on social benefits are hurt if they are taxed on their part-time job, the research showed. On certain occasions, poor mothers buy a piece of chocolate for their children when they receive the paycheck so that they can keep them happy at least once a month.
Kumment: Ahbarijiet li jwahxuk. Ahbarijiet li jgaghluna nisthu quddiem id-dinja u dan kollu taht Gvern Nazzjonalista. Fejn hu l-progress u l-ftahir fil-vojt li mtlejna bil-flus?
THE SUNDAY TIMES
People are finding less money in their pockets to spend on everyday needs - and this is not simply due to inflation. Forget things like clothes, travel, luxury goods and general leisure. It is more the basic necessities, and medicines that are going up in leaps and bounds.
The Sunday Times, 6.3.2005
Kumment: Ligi tal-gungla fejn il-prezzijiet joghlew minghajr kontroll imma l-pagi ma jlahqux. Min hu bsahhtu biss jghix filwaqt li l-bqija tal-poplu jezisti biss, mitluq fil-genb tat-triq tal-progress jara kif jirranga biex jixtri l-bzonnijiet bazici tal-hajja.
Il-pajjiz ghandu problemi kbar, akbar milli hafna lesti jammettu, imma Alla jbierek Robert Arrigo qieghed jara l-genna fl-art.
Imma nahseb li l-Onorevoli Arrigo se jkompli jitkellem wahdu. Tant hu maqtuh mir-realta li qieghed jaghmel hsara enormi lill-partit tieghu stess u bsaten fir-roti lill-gvern li biex jibda jsolvi l-problemi li ghandna jrid l-ewwel jammetti li ghandna l-problemi. Imma bnies bhal Robert Arrigo, dan difficli jsir.
Il-Maltin ghandhom ikomplu jisimghu lill-imgarrab u huwa ghalhekk li maltapolitics.com ma tinzilx tajjeb man-Nazzjonalisti ghax il-verita li titwassal hawnhekk, xi kultant twegga.
Robert Arrigo qieghed kull ma jmur jinzel fil-livell ta kwalita ta kitba. Nahseb li mhux qieghed jinduna li l-kitba tieghu fiha ftit li xejn sustanza u jrid jara xjaghmel ghax bhala membru parlamentari suppost ghandu jkollu livell ahjar ta kitba. Imma din problema tieghu (jew ta min qieghed jiktiblu l-artikli). Fost shabu hemm min ghandu potenzjal qawwi fil-kitba tieghu u Robert irid jara kif jinqala mill-qiegh li jinsab fih biex ghalinqas ikun jista jitqabbel ma shabu. Pero nerga ntenni, din hi problema tieghu.
Intant fThe Malta Independent tat-22 ta Settembru 2006 kiteb, this government listens to the people, is close to the people, and will continue to do so.
Dan it-tghawwig tal-fatti maghrufa jirrendi lil Robert Arrigo hati ta ingann politiku. Ghaliex? Ghax mhux vera li l-Gvern Nazzjonalista jisma lill-poplu. Ovvjament tridu l-provi. Hawn huma:
- My biggest mistake perhaps was my inability not to listen enough to what everybody had to say (Dr. Austin Gatt, The Malta Independent 9.3.97)
- The government is just refusing to listen (Vince Farrugia GRTU, The Malta Independent on Sunday 13.11.2005)
- One decision it (Nationalist Government) has to take as a government but also as a party is that it should go back to the basic approach of listening to what the people have to say (editorjal, The Malta Independent 14.3.2006)
- (PN) Councillors urged the PN to listen to what the people had to say. (The Sunday Times 2.4.2006)
- Blair, unlike Gonzi, has the nerve to reshuffle his cabinet colleagues and demote his heavyweights. In doing so he is sending the message that he is listening. Gonzi does nothing of the sort. (Saviour Balzan, MaltaToday 7.5.2006)
- Why doesn't this man (Gonzi) listen to himself at least if he doesn't want to listen to anyone else? (Joe Grima, di-ve.com 6.9.2006)
Seba ezempji bizzejjed sur Arrigo biex tinduna li qieghed tghawweg il-fatti?
U l-praspar ta Robert Arrigo jkomplu. FThe Malta Independent tal-1 ta Gunju 2007, Robert kiteb, This government, which by the way is a new government, under the direction of a new prime minister, is only three years old, and there is a lot of fuel left in its tank.
L-unika verita li qal kienet li l-gvern ghandu Prim Ministru gdid. Imma Robert gideb meta qal, This government, which by the way is a new government
Imbaghad xi nghidu ghal-gidba l-ohra, and there is a lot of fuel left in its tank. Twiegbu The Times:
L-ewwel hekk (Lulju 2004): The change at the helm has failed to give the government that new spark to tackle the string of serious problems facing the country with the kind of energy the electorate had been expecting so eagerly.
Imbaghad hekk (Marzu 2005), Dr Gonzi is now seen leading a weak Cabinet when the economic situation calls for a team that measures up to the people's expectations.
U kompliet hekk (Awwissu 2006), Dr Gonzi is seen to be heading a weak government, with a number in his team long past their sell-by date. His failure in dealing with this problem earlier might cost him a great deal at the ballots.
Kompli itimghuh l-imbarazz lill-poplu sur Robert Arrigo imbaghad ghidu li tirrispettawh!!!
Robert Arrigo kiteb hekk fThe Malta Independent tal-20 ta Frar 2009: The
