“The leaders change but the Nationalist Party remains the same” – Labour Party

In a statement, the Labour Party said that Dr Grech’s speech was yet another confirmation that despite the change in the Leaders of the Nationalist Party, the Opposition remained the same: annoyed with our country and bereft of ideas and that for two hours Dr. Grech read out a prepared script drawn up by the people who put him there, which was both negative and partisan. Dr Grech attempted to scare people with the deficit and was asked what initiatives he would reduce to avoid increasing the deficit.

By way of conclusion, whether or not the country was better in 2013 as suggested by Dr. Grech, would be decided by the Maltese and Gozitans.
