  • Jeħtieġ investiment fil-Marketing

    Nixtieq nissuġġerixxi li jsir marketing aktar b'saħħti u effettiv tal-proposti li l-PN qiegħed iħabbar minn jum għall-ieħor. Dan il-marketing suppost ilu li beda. Fl-opinjoni tiegħi s'issa li qed isir mhux biżżejjed. U dan qed jirrifletti fis-surveys li qed isiru. Hemm bżonn li jiġi ġġenerat għarfien nazzjonali ta' x'qiegħed isarraf il-PN illum. Dnub li qiegħda ssir tant ħidma tajba, tmexxija eċċellenti, proposti fattibbli u prattiċi, u li jolqtu kull qasam tal-poplu Malti, imma mbagħad, f'dak li hu marketing il-PN qiegħed tant batut. Biex tagħqad, hemm il-problema tal-PBS li mhux qed jagħti spazju lill-PN. Hemm bżonn li jsir investiment fil-marketing biex jintlaħqu l-maġġoranza tan-nies hemm barra.


  • Jitwal il-ħin tal-programmi politiċi fuq Net FM

    Inħoss li huwa importanti li l-ħin allokat għall-programmi politiċi jittawwal speċjalment meta nafu kemm qegħdin fi żvantaġġ mal-Partit Laburista li qiegħed jinfluwenza l-aħbarijiet tal-istazzjon 'nazzjonali' favur tiegħu. Per eżempju, il-Programm: Kuntatt jista' jittawwal imqar b'nofs siegħa oħra biex għallinqas jittieħdu aktar telefonati mingħand dawk li jċemplu, u mhux jitħallew barra mill-programm, kif qed jiġri spiss. Dawn ikunu iddiżappuntati ferm meta, wara li jkunu ilhom jistennew minħabba l-ħafna telefonati li jkun hemm, jispiċċaw barra mill-programm. Rigward il-programm Feedback, dan tajjeb li kieku jkompli wara l-aħbarijiet appuntu fuq temi politiċi li jkunu għadhom kemm ġew imħabbra fl-aħbarijiet stess. Anki hawn, it-telefonati li jidħlu jkunu jistgħu jinstemgħu kollha jekk jitwal il-ħin ta' dan il-programm.


  • Kanditati

    1. All candidates should have their contact details inserted 2. site should also be in English for all those english speaking residents that have a vote


  • KINDNESS IS WHAT WE NEED. WHERE IS IT TODAY?


  • L-anzjani


  • Laws are for everyone!

    Unfortunately being a small country everyone knows each other. I really am disappointed cause the law is not equal for everyone so my biggest wish is that all laws are implemented and enforcement increased. We should keep Malta tidy at all costs and to see this enforcement active the use of cctv’s is a must so we reduce more irregularities around the island . An example of this is that a filthy car with an expired license has been parked on my street for over 3 months ( Victory street in Zabbar ) informing authorities ( police station, depot, tweeted minister in charge and even prime minister) but till today car is still here ! We need change !


  • Leadership.

    This is what we all want to see in a new PM.


  • Leading professionally.

    About time this country is managed by competent people. Managed not only by the ministers and prime minister but also by competent people who will professionally lead all government dept's and entities. Honesty, efficiency, maturity, transparency, are a few values which have totally disappeared. This is where I want to help out. This is where all those who are leaders, should come forward. There is so much to do to ensure synergie, creativity, innovation. I am ready, and you?


  • Lessen Taxes for persons with private pensions

    Those who are retired or pensioners who receive a private pension, whether they have a private pension or a private pension plus the government pension, often have to pay taxes as they go above the tax bracket ceiling therefore having to pay full taxes from their pension. I am suggesting to either higher the ceiling or even better, instead of paying full taxes as though working, the system would allow to pay a lower tax rate. This would offset the fact that persons don't receive full pensions from government when there is already a private one. Also it would incentivise more people to invest in private pension plans, thus giving those reaching the retirement age a better future.


  • Let us see what happened in past budgets.

    The photo says it all.


  • Life is what you make it.

    Life is what you make it. The present and the future lies in the hands of the Maltese and Gozitan population. My advice is "do not ruin what we all managed to acquire years ago and let us build our future together" The photo says it all.


  • Limited development allowances in localities

    I think it would be beneficial for the general public if we limited the amount of development that can take place within a single locality or region. This would reduce the strain on public infrastructure, reduce traffic issues in the locality, and reduce noise, dust and air pollution in these localities. In the long-term, income from development should only be marginally affected, if at all, but the social and health benefits will be huge, and the government will have time to properly plan for any major infrastructure changes that might be required from an area encountering a massive development boom. An example would be to limit the development that can take place within a locality to 20% of the total built-up area of said locality (percentage can be adjusted following relevant studies on the optimal figure). This must obviously be enforced by the Planning Authority in collaboration with the local councils, which should have more of a say in what happens in the locality from a planning perspective.


  • Linkedin.

    It is now a must to have a party page on LinkedIn. So very important. Best to start this up immediately and have someone to get as many people to follow. If you need my assistance, I am available.


  • Li s-ceiling tat-taxxa jerga' jibda joghla kif kien isir kull sena taht Dr Gonzi.

    Nissuggerixxi li r-rati tas-ceilings tat-taxxa jergghu jibdew jizdiedu kif kien isir kull budget taht Dr Gonzi. Tafu li dawn ir-rati ilhom ma jizdiedu mill-2013 - l-ahhar budget li ghamel Dr Gonzi? Kif il-PN qatt ma semma' xejn u ma kkritikax lill-gvern kemm felah dwar dan? Dan ifisser li z-zidiet kollha li kien jaghti l-gvern kollha regghu spiccaw ghandu fl-ahhar tas-sena. Ghax anke l-batuti, ta' pagi baxxi u l-pensjonanti single b'pensjoni baxxa spiccaw jinqabdu bit-taxxa. Ma nistax nifhem kif il-PN qatt ma semma' xejn dwar dan!! Mhux ta' b'xejn jizdied il-faqar!!


  • LIVING WAGE

Din kienet wegħda li għamel JM tmien snin ilu, izda li umbghad ma kellux il kuragg jiffaċċja l employers. Nemmen li jekk din tkun diskussa b'mod matur mal MCESD min issa, biex tkun tapered in fi ftit zmien, u tkun feasible ghal employers din tista tkun flagship tal proposti ghal elezzjoni ghal PN. Ovjament din, bħal kwalunkwe proposta oħra ghandha tkun costed, dettaljata u spjegata sabiex din il weghda tkun kredibbli.


  • Local councils

    Local councils currently have little to no control over what happens in their town. What if they were given the final say. If the government wants to implement something that the town does not agree with, then it would be the government who has to convince them and to repackage the idea to ensure the town will benefit in other ways - extra budget, more community projects, etc.


  • Local councils.

    I was brainstorming regarding our local councils and conducted some research what foreign local councils look like and how they operate. May I offer the following suggestions, please. If we really believe in local councils and their abilities and if such councils are carefully monitored, then I feel it is time to manage change. I would ensure that all those elected are fully paid and that their income is solely a local Council wage, which is fair and reasonable. Anything or nearly anything which has to be done in the town or village is fully managed by the council, meaning that funds are sent to the council, they issue call for tenders, they issue the orders, they pay, they monitor the services given and they take care of the entire process. If need be, to cope with the workload, civil servants are transferred to local councils, to assist. One board is nominated by the government, three by the government and two by the opposition. They will be responsable to monitor and scrutinize all tender awards to ensure the outmost transparency. Where possible and if enough space is available in the council's building, certain civil sevants from various govt depts are transfered there to provide a better service for those who, to date, do not know how to use facilities provided via the Internet. We still have many of such people. If a really good plan is made, it will be a success. Let me give just one example. Yeserday, in a particular locality, 5 or 6 people (I have no idea with whom they are employed) were walking through the streets checking if the garbage issued is correct on the day. Instead of splitting up so that in 1 day they can cover nearly all the streets, they all stuck together. Pathetic and stupid. Money down the drain. Let's give our people the leadership they want and need. The photo say's it all.


  • Local council Security/officers

    I live in st Julian’s, the noisiest and dirtiest place on the island, I suggest that local council should have there own security officers on our streets to prevent us residents from noise pollution and littering


  • Long-term local planning

    Unfortunately, I know this one is a long-shot, thanks to Bernard Grech's recent statement that the 2006 local plans will not be amended, but I will list it anyway as I feel strongly about it. We should be looking at the current local plans of the island and re-work them to safeguard what little green areas we have and be smarter with the way we develop. These new local plans should be the skeleton plan for the next 50 - 100 years, with only minor review and amendments allowed every 10-20 years due to any major changes that might arise (climate, changing needs of the island)


  • Look at the Past Mistakes

    Let's face the truth and admit that in the past 45 years, the environment and our heritage when it comes to old buildings, houses of character, all of which are part and parcel of our identity, culture, tradition and Maltese architecture have been totally neglected. The Mintoffian Regime started it all in the 70s, demolishing some of the most beautiful villas on the Sliema front and despite, the NP came all out saying, Mintoff had a score to settle with Sliema for being a NP fortress, they continued with the building mania after they won the elections. Not only, but the mania spread like cancer all over the rest of the island. In 2013, the stats read that Malta had the highest percentage of built up areas, by 33% in Europe. Are we for real - are we even aware of the size of this island, or do we think we are in some other country like the US, which incidentally only has about 9% built up areas, when there are 360 million people living there! Does this comparison with tiny Malta even make sense to anyone. Of course not, but consecutive administrations have been led by the nose mostly by businessmen, the majority of which were building contractors. The government gives them whatever they want, no matter where the development is proposed to make a quick buck - at our expense of course! Probably at this point ,in time even a block of apartments in the middle of Mdina will happen , In exchange contractors support the parties by sponsoring their advertising requirements during the elections. Today, few fools are unaware of this ugly fact. I think it's a fantastic idea to protect ODZ areas the way Dr Grech suggested but I would go a step further. This is not just a question of protecting only our natural environment, but also our building heritage, mostly historic buildings, or buildings with unique features, that deserve a conservation order. However health should precede all the above and a new government MUST think about the quality of life of the whole population. Because of the building mania that has been ongoing for the past 10 years, people have fallen ill both physically, or mentally. Some died of cancer and asthma but others were buried alive beneath the rubble and the 'lucky ones' that survived ended sup living in their cars, like Janet Walker and many others like her. So now, every time construction works are taking place, such as is happening next to my cousin's house in Fleet Street, Gzira, people who cannot afford lawyers and architects are suffering huge amounts of stress, starting from day one when the works started and will continue until they are completed. My cousin has two boys and her husband living in their house and the building contractor who is one of the many thugs working on similar sites doesn't give a damn about the people next door. Then we wonder why the rate of suicide has risen to incredible heights ,with one person committing suicide every day, aged between 13 and 30! Then we wonder what is all this road rage about, why a huge percentage of people are on tranquilizers or other drugs. It's simple, consecutive governments are supporting the building industry to create claustrophobic eye-sores, that cost an arm and a leg and that only the rich can afford. The ludicrous thing about all this is that there are as many apartments as there are people, not to mention old buildings which could have been restored and utilized and which would not have hassled the whole population. A bank today will give a maximum loan to an average wage earner of Euros 60,000 - try purchasing an apartment with that budget. There are people buying garages and turning them into their residence. When was Malta ever in such a ridiculous situation? All this to make the privileged few richer, and the poor even poorer! Shame on us all. So my idea is we should give power to the people. How about putting actions where our mouths are and being really democratic? Introduce a law which states that in ANY street where a permit is requested to demolish a house, FIRST, the building contractor will have to have ALL the signatures of the residents living in that street who are going to be affected by all the grief and suffering brought by the building activity. If there is a single signature saying NO. Then the contractor need not even apply for permits, because this law would not be allow it! Now we come to my personal experience. I was forced out of my home twice in the past 20 years. The first was from a house in St. Julian's, thanks to the NP when they decided to turn my village where I was born into a red light district where every weekend all the local and foreign hooligans would converge upon it their thousands and then from Msida, when the cancerous spread of buildings made it impossible for me to continue living in a dust, diesel and noise polluted area. So, I made the big move of buying a house, I could not afford in Balzan, in a road which used to be known as Triq il-Villel. Not only but with every purchasing contract for land or residences, there was a clause that said one could not build high-rise building. This was all to be dedicated to villas, terraced houses and bungalows. Today, within the last 8 years, five blocks of apartments replaced five beautiful villas right opposite my home. So during all this time, I was once more subjected to noise and dust pollution, parking hassles, closed streets and roads and eventually developed asthma and severe eye allergies. I spend a fortune on inhalers, eye drops and constant regular visits to my GP and an eye specialist because of the health issues that came thanks to all this unsustainable development. But as if that's not enough, my skyline and views from my entertainment area on the roof which cost me over Euros 50,000 are now gone and when we have supper in this area, my privacy is gone as well because I have people in front peeking at me all the time sometimes even in their underwear. Wonderful! Perhaps it's about time this laissez faire attitude by different administrations whereby building contractors can do whatever the hell they like, without any consequences should be stopped NOW. My house until these buildings were given the green light, was evaluated at over Euros 900, 000, now it's depreciated by Euros 100,000 because there are no views and no privacy. Furthermore, I am informed by my own sources (I am a journalist and writer by profession with far reaching contacts even abroad) that this road is condemned and will end up another jungle of concrete. And I believe it will happen unless, the NP steps up, forgets about infra-structure being the 'motor of the economy' and issues an order, not to MEPA - MEPA has to be removed asap, but to another private institution that there should be no more buildings unless its refurbishments to the existing villas and bungalows. And if they are replacing the building, the height has to remain the same as that of the same purchased building. MEPA has to be investigated because the amount of permits issued even where it was clear these same permits shouldn't have been , wreaks of corruption. I would stake any amount of money that the members have been having a whale of a time at the population's expense. Furthermore, there should be laws that do not allow buildings to overlook onto the properties of others, such as the one opposite my house which not only has taken my privacy but the privacy of the villa next to it, when back galleries were built looking directly into its garden and swimming pool area. Who is going to reimburse us for the depreciation of our properties - the government, or the thugs who built these monstrosities or maybe the MEPA members who allowed this rife corruption? When I spoke with Dr Grech about this issue, he said that this is a problem that wherever you cut will cause bleeding! Oh yes, I don't see the building contractors bleeding or sweating, it's Messrs John citizens like myself that are bleeding because we are the ones suffering from all this chaos, the anarchy and rebus and the fact that citizens are only called upon by politicians when they need their vote! When we need them they are nowhere to be seen. This has got to stop. Creating a law to protect ODZ areas is a must and should have happened in 1987, when the NP were in government, not four decades after. The people are the ones who are suffering and it's about time the government creates laws and regulations to protect his citizens. So far, no administration had the guts, or the balls to kick the asses of the building contractors who now own the island. We were never governed by politicians - it was either building contractors, rich people, businessmen or criminals. Now it's even worse! Tied with the above sagas is the reason behind why we are already experiencing an exodus of young professionals. I personally know at least two dozen of these young people who specialize in various fields, medicine, IT, music, engineering and education who have left the island. All these have left to seek pastures new because as one of them told me before departing, he wants to be able to give his family, especially his kids a quality and healthy life, something that we do not have any more. All this young man was seeing around him were concrete forests! Incidentally there are over 77 thousand people suffering from respiratory problems, all due to dust and diesel pollution. Some have lung cancer, others like me severe eye allergies and asthma. The medicines we buy to keep us thriving are not even on the government scheme for free medicines and these medicines cost a small fortune. I know a lot of people because I am 63 and embarked on my journalistic career at 17. I was employed as a freelancer with Independence Print, now Media Link and just turned 20 joined The Times of Malta. I am a writer, poet, editor, copywriter and PR, ran my own business for 20 years and edited two nation-wide distributed magazines in Malta. that being said, my work is well known in Canada, the USA, Cuba and the UK. I was also twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize in the USA by two different publishers within four months and hired as an associate poetry editor with a leading literary magazine in 2017 in New York. So I've been around and know what people expect. Dr Grech needs to tell people what he is planning especially that there will be NO RECONCILIATION with the criminal regime when these are investigated and found guilty. People expect justice like they expected in the 80s after the Mintoffian Regime had caused so much suffering to people but because of the 'reconciliation' all those cabinet louts walked free and the main culprit was given a state funeral. Imagine after WWI giving a state funeral to Mussolini - there would have been civil war. I believe it was one of the reasons, Fenech Adami lost the election to Alfred Sant. Many people felt they had been cheated because no pone was punished except for the Police commissioner. Dr Grech needs to wake up and face facts - we are not dealing with a political party but with criminals and assassins, organized crime and the Mafia. I also think he should address them for what they are because I would call Robert Abela by his real name Don Robberto Abela !!! He needs to raise the hackles on the necks of the crowds and he needs to show people the NP is going to save Malta once more from its current journey to perdition. There are still people who doubt him because they do not believe he is tough enough! Another point if we really want to win this election, we need Dr Delia and Dr Grech to unite their people together. To do this a mediator would be necessary but consider that he has to be a non-politician. He needs to ne a patriot and both these men must remember that after all, they both want the same things for Malta. Other differences can be settled after they are in government. It's crucial now Delia starts to accompany Dr Grech as a show of unity. We should also start thinking about uniting other small forces like the Republika, the PD and the Alternativa. This is a race to the finish and if this criminal regime wins another term it will take 15 years for a NP government to get us out of all this muck! I have spoken with other NP party members and should you wish to query my comments or ask questions please feel free to contact me on 77702867 or 99498927 or my landline, 21441150. Dr Lawrence Gonzi knows me because he is family . Hope you consider some of these suggestions because this country needs a complete overhaul. Stay safe
