Franco Debono is on a roll. Now he’s decided to tell us The Truth about what happened when he made a giant scene at the entrance to the Isle of MTV concert.
ISLE OF MTV EP[SODE WAS MARIO DEMARCO’S FAULT
Let me say something which I have never said till now. Ex minister Michael Falzon raised the issue somewhere recently without obviously knowing the truth about the matter. I did not need to be elected to Parliament to attend the Isle of MTV since the previous year I had already attended.
But in 2008 a few weeks after being elected to Parliament as government’s youngest mp I asked Mario Demarco, as Tourism Minister for two tickets for the Isle of MTV. Mhux biss qalali qalbi jghaddini biz-zmien ghal gimghat!
MICHAEL FALZON who has raised again the issue recently please note this now :
MARIO DEMARCO GAVE TICKETS TO MPs even to LABOUR MPs but he didnt give me any! So when I tried to go in I was directed to another place. No one likes to feel humiliated. X’tahseb Michael? Why were Labour mps given MTA tickets whilst I wasn’t? And please note there was a number of other mps too. I wasnt the only one to attend. It was humiliating to be directed to a different section to that where the other mps were!
A simple MTA ticket an mp was entitled to is not a cabinet post! And I wasnt the one to make this episode public but I have to defend myself from falsities.
I never spoke about this episode before today, but enough is enough I think .. .I really wished to keep this to myself, notwithstanding the unfair criticism, and due to the respect I have for mario and even more to his sister, who is one of the most exquisite people I have ever known, but am afraid I must defend myself .. .Since then I have had an excellent rapport with Mario, who I repute as a gentleman.
After this kummiedja the whole procedure changed and it became more formal, because they realissed they had committed a big gaffe.
