Led by blind spin­meis­ters

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LETTERS -

I re­fer to Noel Grima’s ar­ti­cle en­ti­tled “Led by blind spin­meis­ters” (TMIS, 18 Novem­ber) in which the fol­low­ing was stated: "All we could find were sto­ries and then more sto­ries about 17 Black. By the end of the week we were no nearer the truth than we were at the be­gin­ning. And we could also find sto­ries, and then even more sto­ries, in­clud­ing in­ter­views and ap­pear­ances to per­suade us that Adrian Delia is still alive, as a po­lit­i­cal leader that is, and that all this me­dia blitz was no 'dead cat bounce'. The spin­meis­ters would have us be­lieve that these two is­sues are the real is­sues of the Mal­tese pop­u­la­tion in Novem­ber 2018. Whether Delia is a real leader will be de­cided by the peo­ple come May, although the lat­est poll saw him sink­ing fast..." I ask Noel Grima to in­ves­ti­gate whether one would be cor­rect in say­ing that well-known Na­tion­al­ist Party ac­tivists are do­ing the rounds in cer­tain elec­toral dis­tricts, ask­ing prospec­tive vot­ers not to vote Na­tion­al­ist come the 25 May, 2019 Lo­cal Coun­cils and Euro­pean Par­lia­ment elec­tions.

This would then pro­vide a cer­tain fac­tion with the op­por­tu­nity to claim that the re­sult ob­tained by the Na­tion­al­ist Party in 2019 was worse than that ob­tained by this same party in the 3 June, 2017 Gen­eral Elec­tion.

This is only an un­eth­i­cal, ob­scene plan whose sole aim is to desta­bi­lize the present party lead­er­ship and, it seemed to me, that Noel Grima is go­ing along with this treach­er­ous sit­u­a­tion. Ed­ward Tor­pi­ano Flo­ri­ana
