10 Oct 2012 TVM
Attention Broadcasting Authority and Editorial Board :
Ever since the new schedule started on 1st October, rarely has there been a current affairs programme where I wasn’t mentioned. I have even filed a breach of privilege in Parliament. I have asked for two rights of reply.
However I have NEVER been invited to be present on ANY programme to have the opportunity to make statements or rebut at least some of the nonsense. TVM ausdience have heard about what others have to say about what I said, but not me saying it.
Doesnt’ the TVM audience have a right to hear my side of the story? Where is impartiality? How is the audience presented with a balanced picture?
I invite (challenge) Dr Gonzi, the man who will spoil Christmas for you, due to his stubborness and detachment from reality, for a debate even on Bondi+ if he likes. I have no problem facing him on enemy territory. He can get Austin Gatt with him.
The Boradcasting Authority needs a radical overhaul, as one aspect of an enormous constituional reform that this country needs, and that as long as RCC and Austin Gatt are around it will not have. The whole broadcasting spehere also needs a new regulatory framework and a new culture. Look at RAI and BBC – it’s a different planet !
What are they afarid of?
They know I have a considerable following out there. I meet people every day who thank me for what I did and what I am doing to stand up to the Oligarchy, to re-establish democracy and to bring on huge political and justice reforms in this country.
I have no doubt they are aware that the vast majority of the population belive I have valid reforms for which I campaigned and that I was treated badly by an incompetent Gonzi. I have no doubt they are awara that people, every day encourage me to stand for election evenas an independent because they are ready to support me.
This is what they are afraid of.
In the meantime the PN is trailing Labour by 12% in the polls. In 2009 PN lost MEP elections by 35,000 votes. At the time I had never uttered a sigle word of criticism against the PN. People were already utterly fed up. I started to speak out after that verdict of the elctorate
