On the 23rd June 1988, Dockyard workers blocked access to the Grand Harbour, so as not to allow in the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal. The Ark Royal had to divert its route and enter Saint Paul’s Bay.
Society & Politics
Without a clear understanding of what underpins the challenges Malta is facing, it’s highly unlikely we’ll solve any of them. Is whining from dawn to dusk helping to magically restore the ‘lost decency’ and prevent the loss of architectural and natural heritage? No, it isn’t.
The question is not whether we will run out of physical land (although in a country as small as Malta this is physically possible), but rather what kind of society do we want to be. Do we want to depend on imports? Do we want to do away with agriculture altogether?
