Il-bidla fil-klima hi magħna

climate-change

Nhar il-Ġimgħa li għaddiet rappreżentanti ta’ iktar minn 170 pajjiż, Malta inkluża, inġabru fil-kwartieri ġenerali tal-Ġnus Magħquda fi New York biex jiffirmaw il-ftehim dwar il-klima li intlaħaq fi tmiem is-sena ġewwa Pariġi. Dan il-ftehim għandu jfisser li hemm qbil li kull pajjiż ser jikkontribwixxi lejn soluzzjoni ta’ din il-problema.

Hemm qbil biex jittieħdu l-passi kollha meħtieġa ħalli t-temperatura globali ma togħliex iktar minn bejn 1.5oC  u 2oC fuq it-temperatura globali, kif din kienet fil-bidu tal-perjodu industrijali. Biex dan isir jeħtieġ li jonqsu l-emissjonijiet li qed joriġinaw mill-attivitajiet tal-bniedem u li qed jinġabru fl-atmosfera u jsaħħnu d-dinja. Ewlieni fost dawn il-gassijiet hemm id-diossidju tal-karbonju (CO2) li prinċipalment joriġina mill-ħruq ta’ żjut fossili li nużaw biex niġġeneraw l-elettriku kif ukoll mill-petrol u mid-diesel li jintużaw fil-karozzi u inġenji oħra.

Anke Malta ser tfittex li tnaqqas l-impatti tagħha fuq il-klima u dan billi jkollha politika sostenibbli dwar it-trasport, l-enerġija u l-agrikoltura, fost oħrajn. Irridu nindirizzaw l-impatti tal-klima fuq il-bijodiversità, fuq is-saħħa, fuq it-turiżmu, fuq l-ilma, fuq l-agrikoltura kif ukoll fuq l-infrastruttura marittima.

Kemm is-sena li għaddiet kif ukoll l-ewwel tlett xhur ta’ din is-sena kienu fost l-iktar sħan fl-istorja. It-temp qed jitħawwad. L-istaġuni qed jiġġebbdu u jinbidlu. L-istaġuni tax-xita inbidlu għal kollox b’mod li qed issir ħsara kbira lill-agrikultura kif ukoll lill-ħażna tal-ilma li hi tant essenzjali għal kull forma ta’ ħajja. It-temperatura li qed togħla qed iddewweb is-silġ fil-poli u fuq il-muntanji f’diversi partijiet tad-dinja bil-konsegwenza li l-livell tal-baħar qed jogħla u ser jogħla iktar jekk ma’ jittieħdux miżuri biex inrazznu l-għoli tat-temperatura.

Irridu innaqqsu l-impatti tagħna fuq il-klima bħala pajjiż: irridu innaqqsu l-emissjonijiet kif ukoll il-ħela ta’ riżorsi bħall-ilma u l-elettriku. Jeħtieġilna ukoll li narmu inqas skart kif ukoll li nirriċiklaw iktar. Jekk nagħmlu iktar użu mit-trasport pubbliku ukoll nistgħu inkunu ta’ għajnuna kbira biex Malta tnaqqas il-kontribut tagħha għall-bidla fil-klima.

Irridu nifhmu li l-bidla fil-klima qed tħarbat il-ħajja ta’ kulħadd. Qed tipperikola r-riżorsi li s’issa tipprovdilna b’xejn in-natura. Dan ifisser li filwaqt li kulħadd jintlaqat, l-iktar li jintlaqtu huma l-fqar f’kull rokna tad-dinja. Għax it-tibdil fil-klima iżid il-faqar kullimkien. Dan diġa beda jseħħ.

Il-klima hi parti mill-ġid komuni, hi ta’ kulħadd u hi għal kulħadd. Hu għalhekk ukoll li għandna l-obbligu li kull wieħed minna jagħti sehmu biex l-impatti ta’ pajjiżna jonqsu. Il-ftit impatti tagħna huma importanti daqs il-ħafna impatti ta’ ħaddieħor. Mela niftħu ftit għajnejna għall-ħsara kbira li diġa saret u nagħtu sehemna biex din tonqos. Ma baqax żmien x’jintilef għax il-bidla fil-klima diġa qegħda magħna.

Din is-sena bħala riżultat tal-bidla fil-klima ftit li xejn kellna xita f’Malta. L-effett fuqna ser jinħass l-iktar fuq l-agrikultura u l-ħażniet tal-ilma. Pajjiżi oħra sofrew l-għargħar li kaxkar kull ma sab.

Dawn huma l-effetti li qed jidhru u li diġa huma magħna. Nagħmlu l-parti tagħna biex flimkien ma dak li jirnexxielhom jagħmlu pajjiżi oħra innaqqsu dawn l-impatti u b’hekk titjieb il-qagħda ta’ kulħadd. Għax il-klima hi ġid komuni tal-umanità kollha: hi ta’ kulħadd u hi għal kulħadd.

Ebola: aħna imħejjija?

ebola

 

Waqt li l-istampa internazzjonali u in partikolari l-istampa Ingliża qed tgħarbel il-livell ta’ tħejjija bħala lqugħ għat-tixrid ta’ din il-marda tajjeb li nistaqsu x’inhi l-posizzjoni tagħna f’Malta.

Xi tħejjija hawn?

It-tobba u l-paramediċi huma ippreparati f’każ li jitfaċċa xi każ ? Fl-ajruport u fil-portijiet xi preparazzjoni hemm? Il-membri tal-iskwadra marittima tal-Forzi Armati huma imħejjija, u dan billi huma jiġu l-ewwel in kuntatt mal-immigrant ġejjin mill-Afrika ?

Tajjeb li nkunu nafu li 90% tal-każi jwasslu għall-mewt. M’hemmx fejqan magħruf għal din il-marda.

Ma nistgħux nissugraw li ma nkunux ippreparati

Ministru hands-on !

mater_dei

L-Ministru tas-Saħħa t-Tabib Godfrey Farrugia għandu uffiċċju fl-Isptar Mater Dei, ħdejn l-emergenza. Iħoss il-ħtieġa li jkun hemm viċin biex ikun jista’ jevalwa l-problemi.

X’inhu xogħol il-Minstru?  It-Tabib Farrugia jidher li jaħseb li xogħolu hu ta’ Manager li mexxi “day to day”. Mhux l-ewwel wieħed li ħasibha hekk. F’pajjiż żgħir bħal tagħna nifhem li l-politku, billi ħafna drabi bhu f’kuntatt dirett man-nies iħoss l-obbligu “politiku” li jintervjeni b’mod li jidher biex ikun jista’ jagħti sodisfazzjon immedjat lill-votant.

Imma allura x’inhi l-funzjoni tal-Management tal-isptar? Għax jekk il-Ministru jħoss il-ħtieġa li jkun viċin il-problema l-konklużjoni loġika hi li l-management jew qiegħed hemm għal xejn inkella mhux jagħmel xogħolu kif meħtieġ! Jiġifieri iktar minn kamra għall-Ministru hemm bżonn li kulħadd jerfa’ r-responsabbiltajiet tiegħu.

Ir-rwol tal-Ministru m’hiex ta’ sehem dirett fit-tmexxija tad-Dipartimenti li għalihom hu responsabbli. L-anqas ma hi sorveljanza diretta tal-ħidmiet diversi fil-Ministeru tiegħu. Hi li jagħti direzzjoni politika u li joħloq l-istrutturi neċessarji biex ikun possibli li l-politika tal-Gvern tal-ġurnata titwettaq.

M’għandix dubju mill-intenzjonijiet tajba tal-Ministru Godfrey Farrugia. Imma anke Austin Gatt kien Ministru hands-on! ir-riżultati ta’ Gatt nafu bihom ilkoll.

Snippets from AD’s electoral manifesto: (8) Climate Change

climate change 1

The following extract is taken verbatim from Chapter 14 of AD’s Electoral Manifesto

Climate Change.
Climate Change is anthropogenic. AD believes that all countries should contribute towards the solutions required in proportion to the impacts which they generate.
Malta should seek to reduce its climate impacts through developing sustainable transport, energy and agriculture policies.
We need to address the climate change impacts on biodiversity, health, tourism, water, agriculture as well as maritime infrastructure.
Government should prepare plans on the climate change impacts of the various sectors. These plans in the form of a carbon budget drawn up after consultation with the social partners should be submitted periodically for Parliament’s approval.

L-Estratt segwenti hu mehud kelma b’kelma mill-Kapitlu 14 tal-Manifest Elettorali ta’ Alternattiva Demokratika

It-Tibdil fil-Klima.
It-tibdil fil-klima huwa riżultat akkumulat tal-ħidma tal-bniedem. Alternattiva Demokratika temmen li kull pajjiż għandu jikkontribwixxi lejn soluzzjoni iżda dan il-kontribut għandu jkun proporzjonat għall-impatt li kull pajjiż qed ikollu illum jew inkella kellu l-bieraħ fuq il-ħolqien ta’ din il-problema.
Malta għandha tfittex li tnaqqas l-impatti tagħha fuq il-klima billi jkollha politika sostenibbli dwar it-trasport, l-enerġija u l-agrikoltura.
Irridu nindirizzaw l-impatti tal-klima fuq il-bijodiversità, fuq is-saħħa, fuq it-turiżmu, fuq l-ilma, fuq l-agrikoltura kif ukoll fuq l-infrastruttura marittima.
Fuq bażi regolari l-Gvern għandu jfassal pjan dwar l-impatti ta’ Malta fuq il-klima mis-setturi differenti. Dan il-pjan fil-forma ta’ baġit tal-karbonju għandu jitfassal b’konsultazzjoni mal-isħab soċjali u jitressaq għall-approvazzjoni tal-Parlament perjodikament.

Futur fis-sod

Futur fis-sod 2

Il-Partit Nazzjonalista qed jgħidilna li biex ikollna futur fis-sod (fl-edukazzjoni, ix-xogħol u s-saħħa) it-tim ta’ Lawrence u Simon hu indispensabbli.

Ma jgħidilniex iżda li l-present, għal uħud, fis-saħħa qiegħed fuq stretcher fil-kuritur u b’nuqqas ta’ mediċini. Simon, simpatiku bħal dejjem, ma jarax differenza bejn grocer li spiċċawlu l-piżelli u l-ispiżerija tal-Gvern b’lista dejjem tiżdied ta’ mediċini out of stock.

Huwa ovvju li l-investiment li għamel il-Ministru Joseph Cassar meta kien l-uniku membru tal-Kabinett li appoġġa l-kandidatura ta’ Simon għal viċi-Kap tal-PN ġja beda jirrendi. Verament każ ta’ investiment u futur fis-sod.

Imbagħad hemm is-Segretarju Ġenerali baħbuħ, Pawlu Borg Olivier, li jidher li qed jitgħallem kif jibagħat l-emails. Il-bieraħ bi tbissima, bejn Paula u Marthese, ħabbar il-linji gwida tal-Manifest Elettorali tal-PN u nfurmana kemm il-Partit jgħozz id-diversita’. Ħasra li ma kellux ċans jispjega għaliex id-diversita’ li jgħozz il-PN s’issa waslet sal-logo ta’ din il-kampanja elettorali. U jidher li sa hemm tista’ tasal!

L-aħħar punt.

X’futur hemm għalina u għal uliedna jekk jibqa’ jkollna Ministri (u Prim Ministru) li għalihom xejn m’hu xejn? Għax għal Gvern immexxi mill-PN, li Ministru jiddobba lift fuq jet privat ma bniedem tal-business biex jara logħba futbol ma fiha xejn. L-anqas jekk xi żmien wara, viċin jew fil-bogħod irid jieħu deċiżjoni politika dwar kif fl-aħjar interess tal-pajjiż jeħtieġ li tkun regolata l-industrija.

Ma ġara xejn l-anqas jekk is-Segretarju Privat ta’ Ministru jammetti fil-Qorti li hu korrot. B’daqshekk?  L-aqwa li lill-Ministru tidhirlu d-Duluri u tfissirlu kemm hi inkwetata.

Qatt ma qalilna jekk kienitx inkwetata minħabba fih!

A case of bad governance

The full process leading to the agreement whereby St Philip’s Hospital is leased to the Government with the option to purchase requires careful examination. Even after Monday’s parliamentary debate, the information is substantially under wraps with only small snippets having been made available to date. The little that is known however, already points towards bad governance.

The Government opted to start negotiations with the owner of St Philip’s Hospital late in 2008, that is four years ago. Commencing negotiations relative to St Philip’s Hospital signifies that alternative sites and options were being excluded: alternative sites were ignored, considered as not being suitable, or as being less suitable than the site under consideration.

The Minister for Health said in Parliament that it would require just under €40 million to rehabilitate St Luke’s Hospital. What the minister forgot to consider was that a basic rule for comparative statements is that, for the comparison to be of any significance, one has to compare like with like. You cannot compare what is required for a 1,000 bed hospital to justify the relative smallness of the sum required relative to a 75-bed or a 110-bed hospital.

The cost to rehabilitate St Luke’s is obviously substantially higher than anything related to St Philip’s. Such comparisons are deceptive. Moreover, parts of St Luke’s are no longer available as they are being used for other purposes.

The potential use of St Luke’s was discarded when negotiations started way back in 2008. If St Luke’s was then considered as suitable, the Rehabilitation Hospital would be up and running by now, saving millions of euros and lots of time. It could have been operational at least three years ago. As a result, it would have been possible for medical personnel at Mater Dei Hospital to deal more appropriately with patients because overcrowding there would have been substantially reduced three years ago, at least.

This is one of the issues which the Auditor General should consider when he examines the process that led to the Government’s decision. I understand that detailed reports are existent. It would be appropriate if these are immediately made available for the consideration of the Public Accounts Committee and the Auditor General.

It should also be considered whether the Government acted correctly when it opted to initiate direct negotiations with one hospital operator to the exclusion of other suppliers of potentially suitable sites. The fact that the Government is not legally bound to issue a call for tenders does not signify that it is good practice to start the process without such a call or, alternatively, with a request for the submission of expressions of interest. The Government, instead, inversed the process linking itself with a call for an expression of interest issued by the owner of St Philip’s!

The tendering procedure is a basic characteristic of public sector procurement so much that even local councils are expected to issue such a call when leasing or purchasing property. Why is it that the Finance Ministry insists on good practice at a local level but then opts for bad practice at a national level? The reasons brought forward by the Government to justify direct negotiations are equally applicable at a local level, yet the ministries of finance and local government justifiably insist on the tendering procedure.

In view of the above, Franco Debono (actively supported by Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando) is insisting that the agreement reached should be shelved until such time that the Auditor General and the Public Accounts Committee of the House of Representatives have examined the whole process.

In view of the seriousness of the matter, that is the possible overriding by Parliament of the Executive’s discretion, the honourable way for the Leader of the House was to deal with the motion submitted by Debono with urgency. It should take precedence over all the Government’s business as it strikes at the most basic of uses.

When documentation is submitted for the Auditor General’s scrutiny there is one particular scrap of paper that I will look out for. This is the advice dished out by the Malta Environment and Planning Authority indicating the possibility to consider an application for the increase in beds at St Philip’s to about 280.

A quick visit to the site of St Philip’s would remove all doubts as to the suitability of the site because it is clear that there is hardly sufficient parking space for the hospital’s current size. The only remote possibility for increasing the facilities at St Philip’s in my view is to redevelop it completely, in which case, costings made have to be calculated afresh. And I have serious doubts whether this can be done.

As I see it, there is no way in which St Philip’s can function as projected. Public funds invested in this project would be monies down the drain. Hence the need for the intervention of the Public Accounts Committee and the Auditor General before the deal is concluded.

Il-każ tal-isptar ta’ Frank : jidħol l-Awditur Ġenerali

(updated)

Għadni kif qrajt fuq di-ve li l-Gvern ser jibgħat il-ftehim dwar l-isptar St Philip għand l-Awditur Ġenerali biex ikun eżaminat il-proċess kollu.

Di-ve jghidilna :

“The Government has announced its intention to submit the contract to the Auditor-General for a full review and evaluation of the process regarding the leasing of St Philip’s Hospital.

The report that will be drawn up by the Auditor-General will then be presented to the Public Accounts Committee for full parliamentary scrutiny.”

Tajjeb. Pass il-quddiem. Ma kellux għalfejn jistenna daqshekk biex jieħu dan il-pass.

It-Times tippubblika l-istorja kollha u din tinkludi d-deċizjoni li l-kuntratt tal-kirja xorta ser ikun iffirmat. Ir-raġuni mogħtija hi in-nuqqas ta’ sodod fl-isptar. Ir-raġuni reali hi l-bejgħ b’subbasta tar-residenza ta’ Frank Portelli li kellha issir il-ġimgħa d-dieħla kif fissirt f’post ieħor f’dan il-blog.

Nistennew x’ser jiġri iktar.

Time 2BFrank

In-negozjati dwar il-bejgħ/kiri tal-isptar St Philip’s ftit li xejn hu magħruf dwarhom. Għax saru fil-kwiet u ħlief lejn l-aħħar ftit li xejn kien hemm paroli dwarhom. Hu diffiċli ħafna li issib informazzjoni. Imma ftit sibt ukoll.

Nhar l-4 t’Ottubru 2012  t-Tribunal Għat-Talbiet iż-Żgħar taħt id-direzzjoni tad-Dottoressa Yana Micallef Stafrace tat deċiżjoni fit-talba numru 1515/2010 bejn żewġ kumpaniji: Icon Studios Limited (C 26538) u Golden Shepherd Group Limited (C 14949). Ta’ l-ewwel kienet rappreżentata mill-Avukat Ġeġe Gatt iben Austin Gatt. Tat-tieni rappreżentata mis-CEO tal-Isptar St Philip’s, t-Tabib Frank Portelli.

Il-każ kien dwar ammont żgħir (€1663.80) li Ġeġe ried lill-Frank iħallas ta’ xogħol fuq website li kien għamillu wara li kienu iltaqgħu u ftehmu dwar dan fil-Lukanda Westin Dragonara nhar it-23 ta’ Diċembru 2009! Id-deċiżjoni kienet favur Ġege. Frank kien ordnat iħallas l-€1663,80 bl-interessi.

Ta’ interess fid-deċiżjoni hemm dan il-paragrafu enumerat bin-numru 7 :

“Wasalna fl-1 ta’ Marzu 2010 ……………… u Dr. Portelli qed isemmi n-negozjati li kellu mal-Gvern li kienu ilhom għaddejjin għal-18-il xahar u li kien għadu jittama f’konkluzjoni.”

Mela issa nafu li in-negozjati bdew madwar sitt xhur wara l-elezzjoni ta’ Marzu 2008 u 18-il xahar wara (f’Marzu 2010) kienu għadhom għaddejjin.

In-negozjati bdew sitt xhur wara l-elezzjoni tal-2008.

Nafu x’kien l-impenn ta’ Frank fl-2008 f’Villa Arrigo jassisti lil Gonzi fil-ġirja tiegħu wara n-nagħaġ li intilfu!

Fid-dawl ta’ dan kolli l-Gvern għandu obbligu ikbar li jwieġeb ħafna mistoqsijijiet dwar l-isptar St Philips. Hemm bżonn ta’ tweġibiet ċari dwar kemm l-isptar St Philips jaqdi l-ħtiġijiet tad-Dipartiment tas-Saħħa u kemm ġew meqjusa sewwa l-alternattivi.

Fl-assenza ta’ tweġibiet ħadd m’għandu jagħti tort lill-ħadd li jikkonkludi li l-ftehim li jidher li huwa konkluż huwa ħlas minn fondi pubbliċi għall-ħidma f’Villa Arrigo fl-interess tal-Partit Nazzjonalista lejlet l-elezzjoni ġenerali ta’ Marzu 2008.

L-Awditur Ġenerali għandu jeżamina sew x’ġara.

Il-Parlament għandu bżonn jistenbaħ ftit!

Its time 2BFrank.

A step in the right direction

The presentation by maverick MP Franco Debono of a motion requesting that Parliament and the Auditor General should examine the proposal that government takes over St Philip’s Hospital is a step in the right direction.

The decision for government to take over the private hospital was taken after negotiations between auditing firms representing government and the hospital owners concluded terms for an eight year lease with the option to purchase. No call for tenders was issued. The hospital owner however issued a call for an expression of interest in the acquisition of the hospital.

There are various matters which the Auditor General should examine.

First: is the proposed takeover of St Philip’s Hospital value for money or is it a political gimmick on the eve of general elections?

Second : isn’t the proposal to take over St Philip’s Hosptal just a confirmation of bad planning involved in the development of Mater Dei Hospital which has resulted in its being too small for the country’s needs so soon after being finalised?  Who was responsible for the Mater Dei brief which has resulted in wards bursting at the seams and  hospital corridors being transformed into wards? Who will shoulder political responsibility for this failure?

Third: is it right for government to negotiate with those who are in breach of the Companies Act through non-submission of audited accounts for a number of years?

Four companies are involved in St Philip’s Hospital. All of them have not submitted audited accounts for a number of years as can be noted through the list of documents available online  at the Registry of Companies. The Golden Shepherd Group Ltd   (C 14948) has last submitted its audited accounts on July 15, 2008. Private Health Investment Ltd (C 24386) has last submitted its audited accounts on February 1, 2007. Medicaid Ltd (C 5283) has last submitted its audited accounts on September 14, 2007. Biomed Laboratory Ltd (C 14303) has last submitted its audited accounts on October 12, 2007.

The Golden Shepherd Group is owned by Frank Portelli, Private Health Investment Ltd and Medicaid Ltd.  Private Health Investment Ltd is owned by Medicaid Ltd and Biomed Laboratory Ltd.  Medicaid Ltd is owned by Frank Portelli whilst Biomed laboratory Ltd is owned by Frank Portelli and Medicaid Ltd.

I await the Auditor General’s conclusions!   I also look forward to Dr Frank Portelli’s comments on government’s health policy and its implementation.

Bizzilla ta’ Malta

Il-ftehim konkluż dwar l-isptar St Philip bil-fors ikun soġġett għal-lenti politika. Dan għal diversi raġunijiet.

Il-ftehim qed isir lejliet l-elezzjoni ġenerali ftit snin wara li fetaħ l-isptar Mater Dei li fih intefqu flejjes kbar: il-miljuni. Qed isir ma persuna politika (it-Tabib Frank Portelli) li hu kritiku ħafna tal-politika tas-saħħa tal-Gvern. Dan waħdu jqajjem il-mistoqsija jekk il-kritika tat-Tabib Frank Portelli kienitx motivata biss min-nuqqasijiet fis-sistema tas-saħħa jew inkella jekk il-ħtieġa li jinħoloq suq għall-isptar tiegħu kienx motiv addizzjonali importanti!

Irridu naraw jekk il-kritika li kienet għaddejja mit-Tabib Frank Portelli fuq diversi stazzjonijiet tal-televiżjoni issa hux ser tkompli, inkella hux ser ikollna pawsa twila.

It-tieni osservazzjoni hi dwar il-fatt li ma ħarġitx sejħa għall-offerti. Intqal li ir-regolamenti finanzjarji jeżentaw lill-Gvern minn obbligu bħal dan f’każ ta’ kiri jew xiri ta’ propjeta’. Jekk dan hux minnu ma nafx.

Fl-opinjoni tiegħi ma jagħmilx sens li għal xiri ta’ oġġetti jew servizzi mill-Gvern għall-valur ta’ madwar €5,000 trid tinħareġ sejħa għall-offerti (tender) dwarhom imma l-infieq ta’ miljuni fil-kiri/xiri ta’ sptar m’hemmx dwaru l-istess ħtieġa!

Dan il-ftehim għall-kiri/xiri tal-isptar St Philip jidher li inħadem bizzilla għal ċirkustanzi partikolari.

Jipprova jsolvi l-problema tan-nuqqas ta’ sodod fl-isptar Mater Dei. Imma jidher li ser jirriżolvi ukoll il-problemi finanzjarji konnessi mal-isptar. Sptar li ilu magħluq ftit.

Intqal fil-gazzetti ta’ dawn l-aħħar ġimgħat li hemm diversi kredituri li qed jiġru wara flushom, biex jitħallsu tas-servizzi/materjal u oġġetti ta’ natura medika li biegħu lill-Isptar. Il-ftehim jidher li ser jagħmilha possibli li jitħallsu l-kontijiet u jnaqqas l-uġiegħ ta’ ras ta’ sid l-isptar. Forsi jkun jista’ jevita ukoll xi talba għall-bejgħ bis-subbasta!

X’kontijiet hemm pendenti m’huwiex magħruf għax l-audited accounts tal-kumpaniji assoċjati mal-isptar St Philip għal dawn l-aħħar snin jidher li ma ġewx ippreżentati lir-reġistratur tal-kumpaniji.

Biex inkun ċar m’hux qed nitkellem dwar korruzzjoni. Qed nitkellem iżda dwar tmexxija ħażina (bad governance).

Sadanittant nistenna lill-ġurnalisti investigattivi li jitfgħu izjed dawl fuq il-kaz.

Probabilment li ser nibqa’ nistenna!
