30% say that corruption is their topmost concern

Malta Today reports on its survey which shows that for 30% of the electorate, corruption is the topmost issue of concern. Think that’s too little, do you? Well, if Maltese people were Danish people, then it would be. But if Maltese people were Danish people, then we wouldn’t have been in this situation in the first place.

Thirty per cent is actually extraordinarily high for Malta. Lawrence Gonzi’s government is supposed to have been voted out because of corruption. Think €400 Maltese clock and a trip on a private plane to watch a football match – with the individuals to whom THIS government gave a power station deal and is planning to give permits for five skyscrapers.

But the same Malta Today report says that in the years 2008 to 2013, concern about corruption never went beyond 3%. Now it’s 30% – from 3% to 30% in just four years of this country being run by Joseph Muscat and his bandits.
