Labour in labour

Re-inventing the Malta Labour Party (and Maltese politics): an unauthorised tazebao.

What’s behind your face, Mr. Would-be-leader?

Posted by fcb on April 2, 2008

So now, we have three contestants, Muscat, Falzon and Bartolo (listed in the chronological order of their announcement). They’ve all told us that they are their own men (well, so far, no woman has come officially forward) and that their families are ‘four-square behind me’ and that they can reach out beyond the Malta Labour Party’s traditional core supporters to ensure Labour wins the next election. That’s all very fine, even if not all three are equally credible as magnets of non-traditional Labour elements. It is not, however, enough for us (general conference delegates or paid-up members, whatever will be the case) to make an informed and intelligent choice. Now we want to know what’s behind these guys’ faces. How do they plan to reorganise the Labour Party (not only in terms of structures but also in terms of political culture) to take it to victory? What ideas and goals are we going to put forward to inspire a confused and numbed electorate to believe in Labour as a party of government? What’s behind your faces, Mr. Would-be-leaders?
