Il-Mument scrapes out the barrel
The Nationalist Party’s Sunday newspaper, Il-Mument, has raided its political arsenal and come up with some really heavy-hitting weapons against divorce legislation.
On the front page, last Sunday:
IL-PREZZ TAD-DIVORZJU FUQ L-ULIED
Tfal ta’ genituri divorzjati ghandhom cans kbir li…
* Ipejpu sigaretti aktar u jiehdu l-marijuana
* Ikunu attivi sesswalment taht l-eta
*‘Ipoggu’ qabel l-eta ta’ 20 sena
*Ikollhom l-ulied waqt li huma teenagers
*Ibatu aktar minn breakdowns
*Jitilqu kmieni mill-iskola
What can I say, in between face-palms of despair at the fact that the magnificent political party which took Malta from broken and desperate North African state to a member of the Eurozone has come to THIS?
Yes, the Nationalist Party has come to this, reduced to scrabbling around in territory more familiar to Labour, upending all that it stands for, while believing that it is being consistent with its principles when it is doing the exact opposite of that.
And all because of….what, exactly?
At least we should be grateful it isn’t ‘marihwana’, ‘tijnejgers’ and ‘brejkdawns’ as it would have been in It-Torca. For small mercies…
I’m wary of translating that piece of wisdom, because this website has an international readership and I don’t want people to think that the governing political party is made up of crackpot elderly spinsters. But here goes:
DIVORCE – THE PRICE THAT CHILDREN PAY
The children of divorced parents are more likely to…
*Smoke cigarettes and use marijuana
*Become sexually active while still under-age
*Cohabit before they are 20
*Have babies while still in their teens
*Suffer nervous breakdowns
*Leave school early
