Backlash After Minister Suggests Waiting Out Power Cut With Reading

Backlash After Minister Suggests Waiting Out Power Cut With Reading
Jul 23 2023 Share

A reply to a comment on a post by Inclusion Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli did not go down well with local social media users, after the Minister suggested combatting the power cuts by keeping busy with a book. 

The Minister had posted a photo after having exited a public library, to which a Facebook user commented: ‘Whilst you’re posing for photos, the majority of the people feels exhausted with your actions’.

The user, Christian Borg, went on to highlight the current power cut issues, saying that after a day of work, one returns home only to find no electricity. 

The Minister’s response revealed that she too was without power. ‘I understand that it is not a joyous situation’, she replied. ‘We read a book until power returns.’ 

The reply did not go down well, with one other commenter urging the Minister to say the same to the elderly currently stuck at home in the heat or those who risk losing vital medicine due to their refrigerators not working, amongst others. 

What do you make of this situation?
