Partit Nazzjonalista are proving again why they are not fit to govern. They are so bitterly divided that they were would rather tear themselves apart than put their country first.
A meeting of the party’s Parliamentary Group, to discuss the Embryo Protection Bill, turned into a circus as members traded insults.
Adrian Delia, who commands so little respect among a large section of the party, tried and failed to restore order.
What was the outcome? Group members agreed they couldn’t stand each other. Adrian Delia agreed he had no authority to decide anything. MPs agreed they would do what they like.
Adrian Delia isn’t so much a Prime Minister in waiting as an accident waiting to happen.
