“Let’s leave the crisis behind without becoming a colony” – Bartolo

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Education Minister Evarist Bartolo said that it is necessary that Malta grows out of the crisis it has found itself in without the need of it become a colony once again. He said that the improvement of the state of affairs in the country does not happen because foreigners want it to, but because the Maltese population recognises that it needs it.

This was said in his latest of a series of daily messages on Facebook. He was reacting to the absolute majority vote taken at the European Parliament yesterday, following a debate held during the plenary the day before, saw 581 MEPs vote in favour of the immediate resignation of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Bartolo said that the Maltese population needs to keep on respecting itself and to not listen blindly to what foreigners say and try to impose.

He insisted that the Maltese institutions need to change and improve for the benefit of the Maltese population and not because foreign powers say so.

The Minister concluded by insisting that one should not throw away a tree because it has some rotten fruit that brought shame to the country with the rest of the world.
