The Labour Party have a tonne of ammunition they can use against Frank Portelli

But they’re holding off in the hope that thousands of idiots of the sort who already voted for them will now vote to make him Opposition leader. They didn’t hold off five years ago, when they thought the Nationalist government might sign a deal with him on St Philip’s Hospital.

And this even though he tried to appease them by appearing on their party station to run Dr Gonzi’s government down, repeatedly. They certainly won’t hold off if he becomes Opposition leader, and for once they would be justified in doing exactly that.

As though somebody with this kind of track record should be put in charge of the Opposition party, let alone the country. Nobody would be justified in bringing any of this up were he not running for public office.

The Labour Party and Frank Portelli are as bad as each other. Despite running this news report telling us how rackety Dr Portelli’s track record is in running his company, with losses running into the millions, piles of debts, employees left unpaid, and his home about to be sold under court auction at the request of a major creditor (all of which should disqualify him for life from serving as a company director), Labour appointed him to the board of directors of Public Broadcasting Services Ltd. immediately they were elected to government in 2013, when they were dishing out trays of iced buns to those who had helped them get elected one way or another.

I’ll bet lots of you had forgotten that.
