The present Labour government is intent on creating a soulless state by stripping the country of its faith, Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia said on Sunday.

“Even as regards to our faith, the government is trying to find ways of making us forget that we are catholic…We shouldn't think that in the modern world there is no more room, or the need for, showing our faith,” Delia said.

“This government wants to make us forget, it wants to remove holy pictures, it wants to remove crosses, it wants to remove the protection of the unborn child, and wants to strip us of that which we cherish most, our faith.”

Delia was speaking during a political activity in Siggiewi were he pledged that the PN would not allow the government to take away Malta’s values, faith and morals.

The PN leader touched upon a number of subjects, including an incident where the government had changed the clause in a cleaning tender at St Vincent de Paul home for the elderly to benefit one particular company.

Government, he said, was not allow all companies to compete and wasn’t creating a level playing field. He said it was not true that businesses were doing well and said the government did not care about small business owners in Malta.

“It isn’t true that the government is pro-business. It is a government for big-business and some-business,” Delia said.

Turning to Air Malta, and the recently announced profit, Delia said that while Tourism Minister Konrad Mizzi had made it seem like he had succeeded in doing that which nobody else had managed, this was far from the reality.

“Konrad Mizzi is again taking people for a ride…he took a number of workers and placed them in another company, he took debt from one company and placed it on another company,” Delia said.

Mizzi, he said, had hidden some €15 million in debts owned to Enemalta, insisting that the company was in fact making a loss.

With six weeks remaining till May’s MEP elections, Delia urged supporters not to be complacent, and to do their part by voting.

“Those who stay home are condoning corruption. You would be a thank you to Labour and to Konrad Mizzi.”
