Nationalist Party leader Adrian Delia took umbrage this evening at his own party’s newspaper Il-Mument following an article which he described as inappropriate.
The article he was referring to was about Lynn Faure who, the article’s headline said, “joined the Labour party after being unsuccessful in her music career.”
The article, written by Joe Mikallef, was profusely criticised across the social media all throughout the day.
This evening, party leader Adrian Delia also expressed his disdain, saying on Twitter that he had called Faure – who had represented Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest as Lynn Chircop – to apologise for the inappropriate article.
He said he extended the apology to all those mentioned in the article and said that he had demanded Il-Mument to withdraw it.
Illum ċempilt lil Dr Lynn Faure u skużajt ruħi magħha għal dak li jien ħassejt kien rapportaġġ goff u mhux f’postu f’artiklu li deher fil-Mument. Din l-iskuża nestendiha wkoll għal kull min issemma’ fl-artiklu. Tlabt lill-ġurnal il-Mument jirtiraw l-artiklu minnufih.
