Franco Debono: Give us back our Country

In what is probably the last post on his blog prior to the General election, Franco Debono quotes a patriotic poem by Ruzar Briffa.

It is a clear message that the people need to unite as one – that the distinction is not between reds and blues but between Maltese who will vote for the good of the country and those that vote to use the country for their own good.

The poem also stresses on the need to participate in bringing about a change that the people badly need, particularly the last line that emphasises that finally we can put an end to the politics of the past and look forward to a new direction in providing unity for all the people of Malta and Gozo.

U l-Kotra qamet f’daqqa – u għajtet: “Jien Maltija!

Miskin min ikasbarni, – miskin min jidħak bija!”

U l-Kotra għanniet f’daqqa – u semmgħet ma’ l-irjieħ

L-Innu ta’ Malta tagħna, – u l-leħen kien rebbieħ

Fuq ngħas l-imgħoddi ġwejjef, – in-ngħas ta’ l-Apatija,

Xħin ruħna kienet rieqda – ġo sodda barranija;

U l-ombra ta’  Vassalli – qamet minn qiegħ il-qabar,

U għajtet: “Issa fl-aħħar – jiena se nsib is-sabar.”

Give us back our country, and then he emigrates to Italy. HOW IRONIC

Giga never say never in life, Franco will realise that PL stands for what it is and he too one day will join us, the PN will end up like a Taverna on some Island in Greece - merely isolated

Franco Malta needs more people like you, not afraid to speak the truth, therefore I beg you to cross over to the labour party as with you and Joseph Malta will become the diamond of the medditeranian God bless you

Il-Partit Laburista bhalissa qisu centre forward fl-ahhar sekondi tal-Partita li ghadha draw, bil-ballun f'saqajh quddiem lasta VOJTA. Nhar is-Sibt nispera li jaqlalhom xutt b'sahhtu li jifqa x-xibka u jirbah il-Partita ghall-hames snin li gejjin. Ejjew ha nghollu s-saqaf tal-ground bl-ghajjat ta' ferh!!
