Maltese Version – TA’ MITT SENA JSEGWI L-ĠRAJJIET KURRENTI
Salvu Mercieca, Għawdxi li f’Marzu jagħlaq 101 sena qal lil-Ewroparlamentari Malti Alfred Sant li għadu jsegwi l-ġrajjiet f’Malta u lil hinn minnha. Dr Sant żar lis-sur Mercieca fid-dar tiegħu f’Ta’ Sannat, Għawdex. Is-sur Mercieca irringrazzja lil Dr Sant li sab il-ħin jiltaqa’ miegħu u qallu li dejjem segwa l-karriera politika tiegħu kemm f’Malta u anke issa fil-Parlament Ewropew. Mercieca, ġuvni, imwieled u dejjem għex f’Ta’ Sannat kien ibigħ l-inbid fl-istess raħal. Għalkemm qatt ma siefer, u qatta’ ħajtu f’Ta’ Sannat, baqa’ jsegwi dak li jkun qed iseħħ f’Malta u anke isegwi l-ħidma ta’ Alfred Sant fil-Parlament Ewropew.
