A new video by the Nationalist Party’s electoral campaign reminded followers and the Maltese public in general of a whopping 150 scandals in 9 years by the Labour government. 

The 2 minute video rushes through 150 scandals of all the emergent scandals by their political rival. ‘Will you trust them for another 5 years?’ the video asks as it ends. 

Among the scandals were the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia and the connections with Yorgen Fenech and Keith Schembri, scandals associated to former Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and the more recent deals involving PM Robert Abela. 

The video also included the recent resignation of Justyne Caruana from her post as Education Minister due to the scandal involving Daniel Bogdanovic, as well as the infamous FATF grey-listing.

Sandra Gauci, a teacher and ADPD candidate, issued a statement slamming the authorities for the lack of respect shown towards workers following the St Patrick’s Day celebrations. 

Infuriated, Gauci highlighted how whilst educators are forced to wear masks and use sanitisers, mass meetings and St Patrick’s Day celebrations went ahead without any adherence to mitigation measures. 

She also highlighted the fact that Opposition leader Bernard Grech joined in the celebrations in St Julian’s, taking photos alongside all those convening in the entertainment Mecca. 

‘Thank you for the lack of respect to educators, public health front liners and anyone who lost someone due to COVID-19. Now try and buy us through some fictitious raise’ she said.

Gauci emphasised the recent spike in daily cases of the virus, but this is being ignored so that people can revel in mass meetings or parties. She also forecasted an increase in measures and the introduction of a fourth booster dose, after all celebrations were done with. 

Comments flooded the post, with several mixed reactions from the public. Some supported Gauci’s message whilst others said that people have a right to celebrate but at the same time asked that kids remove masks in class. Others slammed the vaccine mandates or the cancellation of local feasts.
