Malta | Cabinet Reshuffle | Medical Politics Blog


To Our Very Dearest Health Minister , The Rt Hon Doctor Godfrey Farrugia MD MMCFD MP:

. . . Sorry that it has (Sadly) Come to This . . .

Hate Us if You Must . . . Banish Us to Narnia (if You Will) . . . It's Your Prerogative . . .

But as a matter of Profound Interest (Since you have almost been in your Current Cabinet Post for Thereabouts a Year , to Date) . . . Have you (Substantially) Implemented most parts of the Johns Hopkins Report yet? . . . Have you (Promptly) Acted Upon Crucial Portions of the Dalli Report yet ? . . . Do you have Any Basic Idea (Whatsoever) about What is really going on , directly under your Executive Ministerial Nose?

Who has Independently Audited your Ministerial Implementation Trail ? Or are you Jointly Serving as both Pupil and Examiner ?

Has it not occurred to you that one of the Main Reasons why the General Public really wants to see that Hopkins Report is not (necessarily) to Vengefully (or Bitchily) Judge the Ejected Former PN Government , but to comprehensively (and rightfully) appraise (or assess) EXACTLY HOW FAR YOU (YES YOU , DR FARRUGIA) HAVE FIRMLY PROGRESSED SINCE YOU HAPPILY ASSUMED OFFICE (WAY BACK) LAST YEAR ?

Since when did a Raft of Commercial American Confidentiality Clauses (from Baltimore) ever become Far More Supreme than an Open Parliamentary Debate on the Hopkins Report Findings (and their Subsequently Audited Implementation , or Lack of Due Action , if applicable) , right here in the Sovereign Maltese Islands ?

Confidentiality Clauses , Our Glutei !

Go Tell It to The Marines !

By The Way , (Johns Hopkins Report and Commissioner Dalli Review aside ) , . . . What manner of Health Minister often tends to spend most of his time Sheepishly Looking Away while the Crucial Bastions (and Foundations) of his Ministry are Precariously Crumbling to Pieces ?

Does it not bother you that a (Shamelessly Corrupt) Cabal of Eminent Medical Professionals is Woefully Sabotaging the Ultimate Healthcare Potential of the Nation ? Are you living on Planet Pluto ? Who do you Think that you are Kidding ?

Enough is Enough . . . We cannot bear to Quietly Watch this Travesty (Any Longer) . . .

You and the Government should Clearly Recall that we have Consistently Communicated concerning your (Woefully) Failing Healthcare Ministry , but you Notably Ignored Us , (most especially) whenever it came to the Crucial Stage of Totally Dismantling EVERY ROTTEN VESTIGE of the (Cut-Throat) Medical Political Mafia Barons (and their Feudal Professional Clique Cells) ; which have Ruthlessly Been Holding these Islands to Ransom for Ages and Ages (on End).

Whatever Happens in Future , the Masses have Already Categorically Spoken , on Due Public Record (Albeit Rather Brutally).

They Do Not Appear to Strongly Believe that you are Performing Quite Well (at the Moment).

In fact , They Politely regard you as being Irredeemably Weak , Consistently Inconsistent and Fundamentally Incapable of doing a Proper Ministerial Job ; in direct relation to the Hallowed Portfolio of the Maltese Healthcare Sector.

If You Must Resign , then Kindly Do So with Hasteful Political Dignity , as You are a Fabulous (and Robustly-Respected) Clinician who Does Not (Really) Deserve any of these (Highly Preventable) Hassles.

As far as many are personally concerned , Good Medical Doctors (Like Yourself) often tend to make Relatively Hopeless Health Ministers.

Concerning Filthy Governance , Fulminating Nepotism and Rabid Discrimination , we do not (Candidly) expect very much from you either (in this Highly Contentious Regard), since you (Dr Godfrey Farrugia) were one of the Hundreds of (Highly Privileged) Medical Doctors who were Graciously Accredited to the Grade of Specialist without any Recognized (Relevant) Postgraduate University Degree (or University Diploma or International Fellowship) at the Precise Date of Elevation.

Of Course , Like the Brother of an Ex Maltese Health Minister from the Opposing Parliamentary Benches) , you were not the only other Former Mayor (and Current MP) who Delightfully Enjoyed such Fabulous Regulatory Largesse.

Little Wonder that both Major (Parliamentary) Political Parties are not Particularly Inclined to Thoroughly Investigate this Matter either , even though Hundreds of Millions of Dollars are Shockingly Involved.

In Due Fairness to Parliament (However) , it is pertinent to Publicly Disclose that the Former Director-General did make it rather hard for anyone to ever come close to even scratching the Very Surface of such Outlandish Political Wrecklessness. The 1st Line of Defence was a Specialists Register which did not include the Exact Date of Elevation to Specialist Status. The 2nd Barrier was Political Arm-Twisting. The Ultimate 3rd Cloak of Protection was the Presidency Itself.

Of Course, while all of this was going on , the Rotten (and Purulent) SAC had the Bare-Faced , Bloody Flipping Cheek to Viciously Attack a Hard-Working , Permanently Disabled (and Wheel-Chair Bound) Physician by the name of Dr Naged Megally , who was Openly Denounced as being Comprehensively Unfit for Specialist Status ; despite him not being any Worse than all of the Countless Others who were (Politically) Carried Along.

Unsurprisingly , as Hundreds of Millions of Dollars are Potentially at Stake , in terms of Backdated (plus Recurrent) Specialist Salaries , Accrued (together with Overhead) Specialist Allowances and (Earth-Moving) Specialist Pension Pots , the Specialist Accreditation Clique has (since) boldly recruited the Wondrous Legal Services of the Son of the Current President of Malta ; to Brazenly Fend Off any Major Statutory Investigations into this (Quantum-Shifting) Political Scandal.

Official Data is Vanishing. Government Files are Being Doctored. Historical Political Favours are Swiftly being Called In.

To This Effect , Hell should now been given Enough Cooling Time to Freeze Over Thrice , before (Yet) Another (Jolly Good) Medical Chap ever gets to (Gleefully) Lead the Maltese Health Ministry , once again.

Medical Doctors in Malta have Comprehensively Squandered all of their Recent Ministerial Opportunities at Palazzo Castellania : So it is now time for a Competent Reformer , (Without any Inbred Clinical Loyalties) , to urgently assume Full Cabinet Responsibilities.

*PS : (Kindly) Consider This to be the Hors d'Oeuvre of a (Highly Unpalatable) Political Meal (of Sorts) . . . Plat Principal is Still Simmering in the Oven . . . Bon Appetit !
