    Good God, lady. Let the man rest in peace. Haven’t you vilipended enough?

    “Dward, ghid il-verita, jaqaw ma tantx kont tmur tajjeb fis-somom meta kont Form 2? Is-somma li hdimt fuq Mintoff anke t-tfal indunaw li gibtha hazina.”

    • Dwardu says:

      Ugo, kelli nghidilhom li kellu iktar pozittiv milli negattiv ghax bzajt li jibda jidhirli bil-lejl, liebes il-kuruna tar-ruzarju.

      • Gahan says:

        Eddie ftakar li Sant kellu jirrizenja minhabba f’Mintoff, dik kienet li qalbet il-mizien in-naha tal-keffa t-tajba.

        Imkien fil-maratona ta’ elogji fuq Mintoff fuq is-Super One ma’ ssemma li kien minhabba f’Mintoff li Sant ma setghax jiggverna.

    Ii is no rocket science to understand that Fenech Adami was making sure that he doesen’t say anything that would increase the division that we have in Malta.

    It was his life mission to put an end to all the hatred that exists between us.

    He should be commended for what he said and it takes a great statesman to give ,shall I call ,praise,to the man who caused him so much personal anguish.

    But repeating what Mahatma Gandhi
    It takes a great man to forgive……

    [Daphne – You can only forgive your enemies when they are vanquished for ever, Silvio. Unlike Ghandi’s British colonialists, the sordid Labour Party as a potential government remains a reality.]

    • Colin says:

      Daphne, you are a disgrace to the Maltese society and I’m surprised than PN haven’t distanced themselves from your comments full of hatred and which are inciting hatred. You should take a leaf out of our president’s behavior and attitude towards trying to unite all Maltese people. Instead you try to create a division between fellow Maltese people. I wonder how you feel so elevated and superior to the ‘hamalli’ u refer to, when your words prove otherwise. I hope you are not so limited to believe that the word ‘dick’ you use in one of your articles, is less rude than its Maltese equivalent just because its in English. Anyone reading here kindly understand that Daphne’s views do not represent the views of all PN sympathizers. An before you ask, I lived during the Mintoff years

    • silvio says:

      By all the gods in heaven, and you call me, a FASCIST.

      ” vanquished for ever”, sounds like something from Mein Kampf.

      [Daphne – Not at all. It merely means that Gandhi could talk about forgiveness and so on because the British weren’t coming back to India. Imagine if he had to fight them off every five years. He wouldn’t be talking about forgiveness then, would he. Let’s say a woman has a violent husband of whom she is terrified. Does she forgive him when 1. he’s living in the same house and beating her up; 2. has been evicted from the house but is still hanging about and threatening her; or 3. when he has backed off, found Christ, begins doing charity work, stops drinking and leaves her alone. I trust you can see that the correct answer is 3.]

    • Another John says:

      And tell me exactly how Gandhi’s British colonists were vanquished for ever, Daphne. They just changed.

      [Daphne – Sorry, I forgot you people take things literally. I meant they were out of the picture, which they were. Gandhi could afford to forgive the British after they’d packed up and left India. He certainly didn’t forgive them before they did that. That was my point. The Labour Party are there all the time, threatening to come back and govern. Therefore it’s impossible to forgive and forget.]

      As have labourites over 20 years. Only someone as full of hatred as yourself cannot get over what happened. I’d vote for neither party, but your one-sided bigotry almost (and I stress that) tempts me to vote labour just to annoy you.

      [Daphne – People who say that have made up their minds to vote Labour (and probably always did so) and are just looking for an excuse. What they don’t seem to understand is how very childish and under-developed it makes them sound. I’d think twice about saying that in public if I were you. You really don’t want people to think you’re mentally deficient.]

        At least not a hypocrite, who at the age of 60+ became a ‘liberal’ beacuse she has a few token gay friends at Super One.

        You have become a joke, Anna, unlike your sisters who were and remain decent.

  33. Makjavel says:

    I was lucky I never needed any politician , so I never had to cross swords with any one .At least Dom Mintoff balanced out the bad that he did when he really became our saviour by outmanouvering Dr. Alfred Sant out of government to let Malta resume its road into the European Union ( Integration of sorts), so he still got almost what he wanted , integration with Europe and through the PN, so whether we like it or not all of us owe him something, for better or worse……

  44. canon says:

    Jista xi hadd jghidilna jekk Mintoff talabx xi forma ta skuza tal-hazin li ghamel jew haseb li kull ma ghamel kien kollox sewwa.

    • ciccio says:

      Canon, prosit ta’ din id-domanda. Sa fejn naf jien, Mintoff qatt ma talab l-ebda skuza lil min hu kien ghamel il-hsara.

  45. Esopu says:

    To all our Nationalist brothers and sisters:

    How does it feel knowing that you all have contributed from your hard payed tax for a State Funeral ?

    Damn it feels so good knowing that even though you hate Mintoff so much, together we paid for all this. THANK YOU

    At this time, what is the point for the PL to Govern having such a generous and kind PM. First a President from our side, now State Funerals for our Leaders. Dr Gonzi, we shall never forget….THANK YOU SIR

    ps: payback it’s such a bitch :)

    • La Redoute says:

      See, Esopu? That’s real statesmanship for you. Your lot, on the other hand, believe government exists for your tesserati alone.

  50. Catsrbest says:

    I believe Mintoff would not have liked this scene at all. Dr E Fenech Adami looking down on him as he lies there dead in his coffin.

    I am convinced that he was grossly obsessed with Dr E Fench Adami.

    This is because the very first time that Dr Fenech Adami contested the election as PN’s leader – Mintoff lost the majority and never recovered it.

    So much so that he had, against his wish, to find a substitute (Dr Zero), since he said that “without the majority of the people he wouldn’t have governed”.
