“There is no expedient to which a man will not go to avoid the labour of thinking.” - Thomas A. Edison
So, let's try to read some 'writings on the wall'. HOME... Any bets that the General Election will take place well before the end of this year? ...AND AWAY - Who will attack Iran, the US or Israel? You guessed it, Israel!
Any bets that the General Election will take place well before the end of this year?
Accusations of manipulating the country into an election frenzy are being hurled all around like leaves in autumn.
"Will the Prime Minister call an election for late November, should Malta be cleared by mid-year to adopt the euro on January 1, 2008?", asked Lino Spiteri. In a sly artful way, he predicted the answer. Of course!! In the first sentence of his last paragraph of his article he states; "Should Labour win the election in a post-euro scenario of galloping prices......" And who would ever dream of holding an election following 'a post-euro scenario of galloping prices'? The Nationalist Party is more shrewd than that!
On January 14, 2007, Tonio Fenech, Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Finance, was quoted as saying that "By the end of 2006, foreign investment is expected to exceed Lm 500 millions." It would be interesting to know if this figure had been reached and if in it is included the selling of Malta and its family silver! Does he expect any revival of our economic situation, once all our heirloom has been sold? I'm sure he's not betting on it and he knows that the earlier the chance of a premature election, the better. Before things get worse!
