In another post on Facebook Minister Evarist Bartolo clearly states that the Partit Laburista can auto-distruct if it does not react with honesty and realism to the current situation.
Minister Bartolo takes as an example the distraction of the dinosaurs, large animals that became extinct as they were hit by a catastrophe. In the case of the Partit Laburista its extinction could be called a suicide as it would be self inflicted.
The full post of Minister Bartolo states:
The dinosaurs were large animals but became extinct after they were hit by a catastrophe. The Partit Laburista is a large party that did and is doing a lot of good to the Maltese and to Malta. But if it does not react with honesty and realism to the current situation there is a big possibility that it will meet the same fate as the dinosaurs. In this case this would be a suicide. Why should the Partit Laburista commit suicide given that it still can do an enormous amount of good?
