Muscat - GonziPN is threatening the stability of the country
Labour leader Joseph Muscat said that Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi was endangering the stability of the country during a political activity in Xghajra this morning.
The Labour leader said that families and businesses wanted less talk and more facts, less promises and more action. He said that if the Budget was not approved, Malta could end up with its back to the wall.
"The Prime Minister has already said that the Budget vote is a vote of confidence, but he cannot turn to us for help because we don't believe in this Prime Minister or this government."
Dr Muscat said that the public was tired of chatter instead of policies, and that the government had decapitated the middle class. "A new Labour government would raise the poor up and strengthen the middle class," he said.
He also claimed that the Prime Minister was consistently against democracy, and was responsible for making people lose faith in politicians. He made reference to Richard Cachia Caruana and the St Philip's Hospital lease, which he said had eroded GonziPN's credibility.
Dr Muscat concluded by saying that the PL would be moving forward with courage, good will and unity. "In the coming weeks, we will be provoked by those who want to cling to power, but with good will and courage we can build a better future for all."
