The PN billboard gurus are at a complete loss. Their latest billboard, launched with a message by Mario Demarco is plain nonsense. In the launch of the billboard campaign, the Nationalist Party used a 30 year old poster by the Conservative party. At least now they have copied the idea presented by a modern PL -that Gonzi simply won’t listen. Considering that the billboard strategists do not have any inspiration from the past governance of GonziPN, they resort to a negative approach which has, so far, been consistent in their billboard layouts.
Simon Busuttil, the Nationalist party’s star candidate, confirmed this in an interview published last Sunday. When speaking about his own party’s campaign he is quoted as saying: "I find the campaign disappointing so far." And that "I would have preferred the PN to come up with a more positive message, based on fresh ideas..." To date, there has not been one positive message, nor an inkling of the PN’s proposals for the future. Yet the same cannot be said of the Labour Party. The PL has come up with twelve serious sustainable proposals which will help take the country forward. In fact, Simon Busuttil spoke about what ‘the Labour Party is actively proposing’ confirming that the new billboard is merely a way of copying Labour’s artwork.
GonziPN would like to use the budget speech, full of unsustainable promises, as its stepping stone for the next election campaign. However, the Gonzi administration has kept people in the dark so many times during this last legislature and over so many issues, that the new billboard is merely an account of GonziPN’s lack of policies using the Labour Party’s style of message. It accuses the Labour Party of being silent which is completely false. The Labour Party has already said that when in government, it will not automatically renew the € 500 weekly increase to Ministers, nor will it use and abuse outdated Parliamentary procedure to stop motions that do not favour the government. The PL has already discussed and published guidelines on the new way of governance, one which will lead the whole country, to a united future, as against a Gonzi administration that has introduced and adopted policies that benefit the few.
Once again the launch of this copied billboard was announced through an e-mail. The PN is casting as wide a net as possible, even if this means sending it also to Labour MPs. In its extreme panic, GonziPN keeps tapping all possible sources in the hope of fooling some more people, more of the time.
