Busut­til reaches new heights when it comes to mak­ing stupid state­ments

Malta Independent - - LETTERS -

When­ever I think that Si­mon Busut­til has reached the high­est pos­si­ble level of his long col­lec­tion of lu­di­crous state­ments, he al­ways man­ages to prove me wrong with some new, even more ridicu­lous state­ment!

His lat­est, which beats all his for­mer non­sen­si­cal state­ments, was his claim that he can beat Dr. Joseph Mus­cat, and I quote: “Be­cause I have al­ready beaten Mus­cat in 2003. Just as I had beaten him then, I can do it again”!! Who doesn’t know that Si­mon Busut­til in 2003 was the Head of MIC and not the leader of the PN, just as Dr Joseph Mus­cat, in 2003, had not even dreamt of ever con­test­ing the PL lead­er­ship.

So how can Si­mon Busut­til say that that he had beaten Dr Mus­cat in 2003? Be­sides, MIC was a sup­pos­edly “in­de­pen­dent” body which had the re­spon­si­bil­ity of in­form­ing the gen­eral pub­lic about the Mal­taEU ne­go­ti­a­tions and all the rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion about EU in­sti­tu­tions etc.

Is Si­mon Busut­til now ad­mit­ting that, in fact, he con­sid­ered his role as head of MIC a po­lit­i­cal role? And hence con­sid­ered the PL – then led by Dr Al­fred Sant and not Joseph Mus­cat – as his po­lit­i­cal ad­ver­sary?

Such ridicu­lous state­ments by the PN leader con­tinue to con­vince se­ri­ous and in­tel­li­gent vot­ers that Si­mon Busut­til is in a des­per­ate po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion due to the fact that he is not fit for pur­pose.
