Azopardi claims Picardo is 'continually politically dishonest' in bitter exchange following New Year messages

The Leader of the Opposition has hit out at the Chief Minister, claiming he is continually politically dishonest.

Keith Azopardi believes Fabian Picardo is willing to present a picture to people that he knows is untrue or full of half-truths; he again accuses the Chief Minister of being “economically reckless with our future”.

The comments follow the Chief Minister branding Mr Azopardi’s New Year message as lacking in “honesty and basic political decency”.

Despite the bitter exchange, the Leader of the Opposition says there is scope for unity between the GSD party he leads and the Government “on some fundamentals”.
