Busut­til’s fail­ure to cen­sure Mal­lia over Hitler com­ments shows he has be­come ir­rel­e­vant - PL

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Labour Party said yes­ter­day morn­ing that the fact the Si­mon Busut­til had re­mained silent af­ter PN star can­di­date Salvu Mal­lia re­peated com­ments about Hitler, this time also men­tion­ing Mus­solini, and also about the plague, showed “how ir­rel­e­vant the PN Leader had be­come.”

It was re­fer­ring to com­ments made by Mr Mal­lia dur­ing an in­ter­view on INDEPTH, which is pro­duced by The Malta In­de­pen­dent.

“This is of­fen­sive not only to­wards the Prime Min­is­ter but also to ev­ery­one with a sense of his­tory,” it said, point­ing out that Hitler had been re­spon­si­ble for geno­cide and the start of WW2.

“Salvu Mal­lia is a car­i­ca­ture of pol­i­tics. He is in­sult­ing peo­ple’s in­tel­li­gence and spread­ing hate that does not ex­ist. Af­ter he in­sulted the Col­lege of Euro­pean Com­mis­sion­ers be­cause the en­ergy project was ap­proved, Si­mon Busut­til is fail­ing to con­demn Mal­lia, who is not only in­sult­ing his po­lit­i­cal ad­ver­saries but all those who have sense of de­cency.”
