Labour would win national election today, survey shows

James Debono

An election held today would see Labour win by a landslide even though Gonzi is still leading as the most trusted leader. A MaltaToday survey conducted in the same week during which hefty increases on fuel and electricity were announced has shown the Nationalist party is trailing five points behind the Labour party at 31 per cent.

EDITORIAL
Adding fuel to the flames
The explosion in the price of crude oil is a situation not of the government’s making. The hike is due to the strong demand for oil in the emerging economies of China and India together with the hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.


OPINION

Both eyes closed
The social partners and the people seemed to have closed both eyes to what was happening to the oil price on the international market,” screamed the editorial of the newspaper that spent decades placing monochrome pictures of British royalty sporting a tartan kilt when Malta was burning with Mintoff at the helm.
