My agenda is to get rid of this super-corrupt unholy trinity – Salvu Mallia tells Marlene Farrugia
“My agenda is to get rid of this super-corrupt unholy trinity and make sure that those who follow do not commit the same mistakes that discredited [him] with a whole nation, and also to promote culture as the only true salvation of a our country’s soul.” This was the reply that Salvu Mallia posted on his Facebook wall in reaction to what
Partit Demokratiku leader Marlene Farrugia had written on her wall earlier yesterday.
Dr Farruga had said: “I am the PN as much as I am the laburista mill-fortizza tal-Ħaddiema Żurriqija. Because if you dig deep enough you will realise that the hardworking , honest, law-abiding , level-minded , Maltese laburist is not different from the hardworking, honest, law-abiding, level-minded Maltese nazzjonalist, jew alternativist.” Dr Farrugia told Mr Mallia that what matters is that we agree on where we want to go from here. “Where do we want to see our country, our people, our children? It can be done. But it’s not about me joining the PN or the PN joining me. It’s about being. It’s about being good Maltese citizens, good European citizens, good citizens of the world by adhering to the basic principles that guarantee human dignity and fulfilment wherever that humanity is and whatever stage of physical, emotional development it is in. And yes, this can be achieved.”
In his reply Mr Mallia said that he is “proud to have said it publicly – and here I confirm it – that I respect you above all other MPs on both sides of the House, as you taught everyone a great lesson in honesty, integrity and zero tolerance to corruption.” He said that in yesterday’s PN political event, “I invited you to do like me (and I suppose that you understand that I consider my decision to be the best for the welfare of the country) and that only proves further how much I hold you in the highest esteem. I am convinced that your example, of not being cowered into submission like so many others, can convince people to make the right decision.”
The former TV presenter said that “there is no room to experiment and play in the hands of Muscat, a person who treats even his own people with contempt, let alone Malta. No, it’s not going to be any Simon-Salvu coalition that will save Malta, but all the good Maltese and a complete change of mentality and attitude, what I call the revolution of the minds. First and foremost in the Nationalist Party.”
Mr Mallia said that “only then will the people start trusting them again, after the clamorous rejection of the last election and this is a truth that Simon Busuttil should consider very seriously, and get rid of any traitors who put their interest first and paved the way to defeat giving an easy victory to a cheap demagogue. I have always made clear that I follow no leader but my conscience and serve no one but my country.”
He told Dr Farrugia that he is sure that “there are no differences in what we both believe, except for the fact, it seems, of how we are going to achieve our common goal for the welfare of this country that we both love dearly.”
