Busut­til has switched on the PN ma­chine’s gear, in re­verse

Malta Independent - - DEBATE & ANALYSIS -

Just a cou­ple of hours af­ter read­ing Mal­taTo­day’s lat­est pub­lic opin­ion sur­vey re­sult, which showed Dr Joseph Muscat hold­ing an eight-point lead over the PN leader, while the PL had marginally in­creased its lead over the PN, Si­mon Busut­til had the gall, once again, to tell a few PN sup­port­ers gath­ered in Nadur that he and the PN “would be win­ning the elec­tion”.

When one con­sid­ers that this sur­vey was car­ried out just three days af­ter the PN’s In­de­pen­dence mass-meet­ing, in which Si­mon Busut­til was sup­posed to have “switched on” the PN’s elec­toral cam­paign, and made all sorts of elec­toral prom­ises, this re­sult should have, at least, con­vinced him not to keep mak­ing such glar­ingly ob­vi­ous stupid state­ments.

No won­der Dr Muscat quipped: “Yes, Si­mon Busut­til has switched on the ma­chine. But he put the gear in re­verse.”
