Listen to me dear PN - leave the seat vacant - there is absolutely no parliamentary material in any of the three nominations. In the past, Gonzi had spoken of the limited talent in his group. Buzullotti will be speaking very soon of the inexistent talent in his group.

Int bis serjeta Fredu? Facli tkun statesman meta tifqa lil kaxxa bid dejn thalli li ta tahtek jghamlu li jridu u tghaddi in nies biz zmien bil weghdi mhux imwettqa.

All the candidates put together cannot even start to fill in Gonzi's vacant seat. Kemm tridu tieklu bajd u gobon biex tersqu lejn l-expertise ta' Gonzi u l-par idejn sodi tieghu! Studjaw kulma ghamel Gonzi u forsi tibdew titghallmu li statesman bhal dak mhux facli tihdulu postu. Start with the winning smile as you cannot start with the winning results.
