Red hearts do bleed as well
I have the greatest sympathy for Michael Sant, the brother of former Labour Prime Minister Alfred Sant, when he comments on the article by Mario de Marco who wrote of the stress his mother suffered after the attacks made on her husband, the late well-loved President Emeritus Guido de Marco.
Mr Sant says that his own mother went through the same traumas when Alfred Sant was the subject of vicious, callous and insensitive attacks against her son’s personal integrity. Michael Sant is correct but the very great difference is that Alfred Sant was able to defend himself and obtain his mother’s sympathies.
In Mrs de Marco’s case her husband had passed away when certain political elements tried to tarnish his memory in a cowardly manner for their own ends. Not quite the same comparison is it?
