PM - Two weights and two measures for Labour
Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi said that the Labour Party had two weights and two measures, finding faults in others, while failing to hold their own candidates to the same high standards.
"Labour doesn't change. It is, and always has been, a negative party," he said during an interview on Radio 101 this morning.
Dr Gonzi said that the PN had always been able to generate employment; not by resorting to the creation of employment corps but by modernising Malta and making it attractive to private investors, unlike Labour, which actively scared them off each time it was in power.
He also spoke about education and mentioned the Middlesex University campus which opened this week, noting with pride that 82 per cent of students went on studying after completing compulsory education.
Dr Gonzi said that some people were still looking for jobs, and that the government was seeking ways to increase opportunities especially for those who were having trouble finding employment, such as those in late middle-age and people with disabilities.
He also spoke about the newly-opened gardens in Pembroke and said that visitors who had not been to Malta in just three years were impressed at how much had changed, including more recreational spaces.
"We want the profits we reap to be invested in the country's health - and that doesn't just mean free medicines, but also spaces to relax and unwind."
