Gas price hike

At 7.30am in the beginning of August, a friend of mine told me she had just bought a gas cyclinder that cost more than usual. The first thing that came to mind was: how come this increase in gas prices was not communiated to the media on the steps leading to the Prime Minister’s office in Castille, just as had been done in 2014 when a press conference was called to announce the great sensational news (!) of a 2c reduction in fuel prices?

Then, I quickly reminded myself that we are being led by a Labour government that prefers to do things by stealth.

Everyone would recall the contracts signed by the government not so long ago and (if and when) presented to the Opposition they would have been either late or incomplete.

This increase in gas prices will continue hurting pensioners, families facing financial difficulties and other vulnerable people.

I have no intention of dwelling on the past.

However these things, together with others which surface every day, keep on confirming how the Maltese electorate was cheated.
