03 Aug The real problem of the january ‘reshuffle’ – Austin Gatt
Last january on Bondi+ i made it clear that the reshuffle, which was no reshufle at all was done on january 6, precisely on the day I made very bold declarations stating I would not support a Prime Minister who is held hostage by people like Austin Gatt. That was Friday 6th january at 9am, Times of Malta.
There was such a great panic at these declarations that their reaction was to make a reshuffle later on in the day, to confuse people, and make them believe i reacted to them!
If you have been swallowing this bait, it’s time to wake up! I made my declarations. The panicked, half baked and turmoiled reshuffle came after, later on the same day! If you were always led to believe otherwise you were being cheated!
Last january on Bondi+ i also made it very clear that the real and greatest problem was not who wasn’t appointed to cabinet, but who wasn’t removed.
‘Il-problema tar-reshuffle mhux min ma dahalx imma min ma harigx.’ I said this last january on Bondi+.
Can this country tolerate a Minister (Austin Gatt) and his band of merry men in various government boards and entities playing musical chairs, committing one blunder after the other, not resigning after BWSC, not resigning after Arriva, burdening the mlatese population with cruel water and electricity bills, declares he is not even contesting the next elections, and he continues to act and is allowed to act by the prime Minister as if he is an untouchable ‘li hadd ma jista ghalih’?
What does a Prime Minister expect if he allows someone to ride roughshod over everyone and to bully his colleagues with impunity? Isnt that a bad example not just to the whole country but also to the parliamentary group? Where is team spirit?
Why is AustinGatt allowed to have multiple political lives, whilst others ideas and opportunities have to survive multiple abortion attempts?
Austin Gatt’s attitude, which for years has brought feelings of utter disgust in thousands of Maltese people including Nationalists is the attitude which has caused untold harm to the PN parliamentary group, the party and the government.
People dont like bullies. Someone who is confrontational by nature does not become a ‘doer’ because exhibits his bullying tactics and gives vent to his anger, with the excuse of getting things done.
The public transport reform, without Austin gatt’s bullying character, would have succeeded!

In the coming elections there won’t be an austin gatt, there will be his stooges ,all students of his,all graduates in arrogance…… My god!!! 5 austin gatts!!! Gives me the shivers!!! Mind you , in my opinion they will all be competing for nothing ,because the party as we know is dead. I do not believe that 25 years is too much for a goverment as long as he keeps delivering. Dr fenech adami delivered to the end but dr gonzi has killed the party that our forefathers build with so much sacrifies.what would dr.enrico mizzi,dr borg olivier.dr emanuel bonnici, and all the genuine nationalists of yesteryear say today . Dr gonzi what are going to say to uncle micheal down yonder when you meet.you have broken the heart of all the real nationalists,the ones who love thier country not their pockets or their bulging bank accounts

U kieku kont int, x’kont taghmel?
BWSC: Ghidli, kont taghti l-kuntratt lill Bateman? Kont tinjora t-teknici li evalwaw il-proposti minn diversi kumpanniji u tiddeciedi int? Kont forsi taghzel li l-PS tithaddem bil-gass u konna nistennew xi 5 snin ohra? U x’kont taghmel bil-Marsa PS? Kont forsi tibqa thaddimha kontra l-parir tal-UE w thallas multi w fl-istess hin trahhas it-tariffi? Minn fejn kont se timporta ‘fuel’ irhas biex thaddem il-PS ? Kont tiffinanzah l-‘interconnector’? Forsi xi hadd qed ipespislek f’widnejk dwar is-SARGAS? L-energija ghandna bzonna illum mhux xi hames snin ohra, PS fuq l-art u mhux fuq barkun!
ARRIVA: X’kont taghmel int biex taqleb sistema antekwata, b’xufiera zdingati u thaddimha fuq ir-rubini mill-ewwel gurnata? X’kont taghmel meta nofs ix-xufiera ma marrux ghax-xolghol fl-ewwel gurnata? Int espert tat-toroq wkoll, issa? Meta l-MT kellha rakkomandazzjonijiet mill publiku dwar ir-rotot, int kont tinjurhom u ggieghel Arriva tibqa fuq ir-rotot l-antiki minghajr ittigha cans tevalwa rotot godda? Il-‘hindsight hija 20-20’ jghidu. Wara kulhadd bravu. Int kont iddiskutejt ma Wistin dak li qed tghid issa QABEL ma dahlet l-Arriva?
Il-problema tar-reshuffle, ghidt int ‘mhux ta min ma sarx ministru, imma ta min ma tnehhiex’. Sewwa, mela ma tridx ikollok xi hadd adattat biex isir ministru f’dak il-portafoll qabel ma taqla iehor? U allura kont tahseb li int kien imissek u kont taghmel xoghol ahjar minn Wistin? U mbaghad meta int ghidt li hemm problema fil-ministeru tal-Gustizzja kont titlob il-ministeru tal-Gustizzja? U mbaghad, kont iddur ghal ministeru tal-Finanzi ghax Tonio Fenech ghandu bzonn il-pariri tieghek li ma tridx ittih? Ftakar Dottor Debono li ‘a rolling stone gathers no moss’.
Hallina nghixu Franco, qed iddur bhal zugraga li wara li taghqad ghal hin zghir tispicca fuq gembha, wieqfa bhal ma se jigri l-karriera politika tieghek.

Iam sorry but this is all your fault that Austin Gatt is still there.You should have voted against him when you had the time.It is nnot your fault only but the others too are to blame.

Minkejja dan kollu jien xorta wahda se nivvota lil manwel delia ghaliex kont mort il- launch tieghu fil-presenza tas- sur Lou Bondi, epitoma tas-simpatija. Tghidx kemm hadt gost nitkellem ma Amanda Ciappara dak in-nhar. Tant jisthoqqlu l-one is-sur Delia li ha ntih zewg ones…ha ntih l-eleven. X’tahseb Franc?
