“This can be a new start”; Franco Debono says ‘people are angry’ in light of survey results

 - Local - Mar 13 SHARE ON:

In light of MaltaToday’s recent survey results showing the Labour Party’s ‘worst result ever’, lawyer and former PN MP Franco Debono took to social media to share his two cents on the matter.

Debono stated that “the survey shows the people are fed up” and “very angry”, which anger can be seen in the survey results. In a string of Facebook status addressing the matter, Debono encouraged the PN to keep its feet on the ground and approach politics with humility and caution as the people continue to ‘wake up’.

The trust barometer survey results state that the gap between the Labour Party and Nationalist Party stands at 8,500 as it stands within margin of error.

The survey states that PL lost eight points compared to last February, while the PN gained six points.

“God bless, this earthquake of a survey condemns the government in the same week Joe Azzopardi was made Standards Commissioner”, the lawyer stated, going on to state that the survey reflects not only the hospitals scandal but various episodes of arrogance being committed ever single day including vile attacks on judicators.

What do you make of this?

6 people reported by Malta Rangers for littering and illegal fire at Għar Lapsi

Six individuals have been reported by Malta Ranger Unit officials for littering and illegal fire on top of a Mediterranean Thyme.

The Malta Ranger Unit Facebook page stated that the Natura 2000 site of ‘Ir-Ramla taċ-Ċirkewwa sal-Ponta ta’ Bengħisa’, Għar Lapsi in this case, continues to face visitors which do not respect the environment they are in.

The Rangers reportedly documented the illegal acts, alerted the Siggiewi & Zebbug Community Policing Team and made a report, which was enough for the police to press charges.

Photos shared by the unit show one individual throwing a plastic bottle, leftover food which attracts rats and poses a threat to breeding seabirds and ongoing fire on the protected Mediterranean Thyme.

“Fines for littering within a protected site are between €450 – €1150 (additional €300-1000 on the €150 for littering/incorrectly disposing of waste”, the post read.

The Malta Ranger Unit thanked PC218 and 981 from the Community Policy Team and the Inspector of the EPU for continuous hard work to safeguard the Maltese environment.
