Matthew Caruana Galizia has weighed in on the swathe of political billboards popping up all over Malta, warning that the country needed concrete action to ensure transparency and accountability on the islands, not childish political messaging.
Six billboards were erected yesterday by the Labour Party, in response to the two billboards that the Nationalist Party unveiled earlier this week on Tuesday. Both billboards were intended to take a dig at each respective party.
On the other hand, PL’s billboard shows Jason Azzopardi exiting from Hilton Hotel and a message saying “Grazzi Yorgen,” with a reference to the Tomb of Christ in shot behind him.
Writing on Facebook, Caruana Galizia said:
“In the end, it’s not billboards that we care about, but that people don’t kill our mothers for money. How do we get there?”
Caruana Galizia continued by listing morals, ones that a fully functioning government should be in possession of.
“Accountability. Integrity. Transparency. Justice. Fairness. Merit.”
He concluded his status by saying, “If someone isn’t putting these serious words on their billboards, it’s because they know they can’t.”
Do you agree with this?
