This was supposed to be a talk about "Future. City. Life!" The general subject was city development, with a focus on three future-related trends: demographic change, digitalisation of culture and sustainable habitat. Projects were developed for a futuristic sustainable city under the fictional name of Leinwig. The Executive Chairman of Malta's College of Science and Technology was invited to give his views.
Instead, our Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando goes there to speak about his Private Members Bill. He goes to the extent of lying about the PN financing a No to Divorce campaign. He tells them that Malta is a satellite of the Vatican.
And then they have the audacity to speak about a national interest. Watch his speech and weep with shame.
If the "what-the-****-is-this-guy-speaking-about?" look on the blonde woman's face is not enough, read the comments below by students who attended his speech, which you can see on the Youtube link of the video above:
What was this person doing there telling us about his personal nonsense? He is totally incompetent about the topics being brought up during this orientation week. Could he tell us next time where his research work is documented as he doesn't seem to have written anything scientific. This was a very embarrassing moment.
He speaks about everything apart from modern cities, the actual theme of the conference.
Its just embarrassing for the country...
Who is he anyway? I have researched his work but it is nowhere to be found.
Well, that's what happens when you place, without any merit, an incompetent as Executive Chairman of our national College of Science and Technology, representing Malta's scientific community abroad.
Very much in the national interest.
