Government should stop wasting taxpayers money on their luxuries then there will be funds to capture the lions. But no, some trigger happy sob will most likely just open fire on them! Its not their fault they are roaming freely, but the fault of idiotic sub humans!

Nice, short and sweet article Simon, thank you for sharing! It is amazing how the list of minimum requirements for a good tourism website has grown over the past year or two... I guess we can also add the importance of guest reviews or a Tripadvisor widget to the list? Seems like it is playing an increasingly important role in traveller decision making, especially in the BnB/Guesthouse sector. Thanks again for sharing.

You are so off course you would not know it if a map was shoved up your nose. However, as long as we try to put partisan politics into play then it's OK as any means to that end! PS: Did you know that this person was Ex PN Minister Michael Frendo personal assistant??? I am sure you will comment in a different tone on this story from now on.

It is not up to you to dictate to me my opinion. Now, I gather from your comment, you dislike democratic practice; but we do live in such a democracy. I have a vested interest in leaving Malta in better shape than when I was born here. People with closed minds, like you, are no help at all to bring this small nation into the real 21st century. PS: For your guidance, as you seen unable to read the international media, go to CNN's today report on this story, and learn about the real reporting mode.

It is a fairly common characteristic of reporting, be it in the papers, TV, radio or twitter etc. If the person on which a segment is about is not widely known, the report will indicate his/her nationality. From Romanian pick-pockets in ToM to ‘...the Maltese investigative journalist’ in the FT to ‘Catalonia's sacked president’ on the beeb.

You're comparing two incomparables. Long before they killed Falcone and Borsellino, to mention Sicily Europe-wide was generally synonymous with mentioning the Mafia. The elimination of those two great men was devastatingly shocking, but nothing new to a world long disgusted by Mafia prepotentiousness. The point I tried to make in my blog is that, up till recently, to mention that I came from Malta was never associated with something negative. That has changed dramatically almost overnight. Malta has been hitting the foreign news in recent history, too often and too heftily, for the wrong reasons. To put it simply, Malta is fast becoming what Sicily had been long before the assassination of Falcone and Borsellino.

What's different? A bad man doing something illegal in someone else's country. If it matters to you that they are foreign when they do something 'bad' on our soil, it should matter to you that they are Maltese when they are doing something bad on foreign soil

Abstracts - and the social moment I was trying to define is an abstract - are the most difficult things to find the right words for. You are right. That is how it sounds to a negatively critical reader. Rest assured, your interpretation cannot be further removed from what I tried to convey with those words. What I meant was that since our population is relatively small, we often come across persons when we are abroad, who have never met a maltese person. It is then only natural that, revealing your nationality, elicits unusual interest from others, in a positive sense, often being for them the first time to meet a Maltese. It makes them curious to know more about us, which is a good thing. Any other reaction would mean that the others are boring. I don't mix with boring people, I avoid them like the pest.....only on this platform it is inevitable to meet them. Like I have done just now.

I admit I dont know the context of your meeting. What I know is way back when the mafia blew Falcone and Borsellino, probably an organisation in collusion with the Regional government if not Rome back then, no one here gave cold shoulders to the Sicilians or Italians in Malta. For what fault they have? It would have been stupid. And the Germans are not stupid. The reason may have truly been the rise of the far right, afterall. They have had it up to their nose with foreigners and also their criminality.

I don't know how Joseph Mifsud is being described as a 'distinguished academic' or indeed as 'professor'. As far as I know, he was an administrator at the University of Malta and elsewhere, not an academic.

But it is relevant to the story in a Maltese context. If this guy shows up in Malta, we want to know who we are dealing with. Crooks everywhere you look and all that... Why do you want to hide them? Capito you?

The fact that this person was Malta born is of NO NEWS value at all. Nor the fact that he was ex PN Minister Michael Frendo personal assistant. SO WHAT? In fact, no responsible international media alluded to this Professor's birth place. Simply irrelevant! Naturally, except for gossipy malicious Maltese attempting to fling any muck they come across.

There is no scandal really that has anything to do with the fact that this person was Malta born; or was in fact Michael Frendo personal assistant. Had the fact been relevant to the original story than that would have been different. BUT it was Not!

It is absolutely irrelevant to the actual importance of the original story. Had his Maltese connection been relevant, than I would have understood the emphasis. But it is not! Nor is the fact that he was the PN's ex Minister Michael Frendo's personal assistant.

Thanks for the correction. Agree 100%. In fact I'll go even further and define the boundaries of our global vision to a swimming distance off every spot along the coast of Malta, Gozo, Comino and Filfla.

Wow....a Maltese academic with strong connections with high level Russian officials. Connecting Trump with Putin. Wow again !! As we always say, if Malta was bigger, we would rule the world. Somehow a Maltese person always crops up out of nowhere. Both the USA and Russia have Nukes. Let's hope someone doesn't target us.

Actually, I tell it to everybody. Since the 80s many names from both parties have been dropped.... yet, when rival parties won the election, they never held the criminals accountable. Thus, both sides must be benefiting from each other's deeds.

You must have overlooked the line: "I have been to countless similar gatherings and till now my saying I'm Maltese was always welcomed with bemused smiles and healthy curiosity to know more about my background. Not this time.". I think you should have credited me with enough judgement to differentiate without the need of prompting from you, whether it was moods or ethic. And rest assured incidentally, that I definitely don't suffer from any infantile view of myself, indeed it is flagrantly infantile of you to imagine that of me. Amusing that at my ripe old age, having mothered and raised six children, and having lived in over a dozen foreign countries, I receive (that's the right spelling by the way) instructions from you on how to react to intercultural exchanges. Perhaps next time you re-consider your attempt to "educate" others who might be far better educated than you. Cobbler stick to your awl as the saying goes.

Oh my God, still at it. If the Brits, the Americans, the Spanish, the Israelis, the Italians worry about how others think about them, with the things their countries do, above and below the radar, they will stop and die. I do not care whether this person was a PN. He was important enough to influence a big event, whether good or bad is subject to opinion, in the world. As if Hilary was a 'good' person. Some attribute to her the creation of ISIS. If I am understanding good, what this person did is aiding in exposing her wrongdoing, obtained by technological means, albeit on one side. But nothing different than what Ms. Caruana Galizia was doing.

You cannot tell exactly why you've recieved a 'cold' shoulder in Germany. The reasons may range from moods to ethnic. For sure, Germans have much worrying issues than events in our tiny rock. The best thing to do is to ignore it all and enjoy life. We have no obligation to please all the world, or to be nice guys or girls. Prehaps we Maltese have an infantile view of ourselves. .

An eloquent account of how the mention of 'Malta', nowadays, tends to make one wince - react as to a bad smell. Meanwhile, as you say, a significant number of Maltese people - usually those who've never 'lived and had their being' away from "the rock" seem to be so pleased with themselves.

Good point, well made. It’s almost as if the British notion of colonial superiority (I am Anglo Maltese so no axe to grind either way) has seeped into our collective DNA. Neither nation needs to be alone but both seem to be seeking it, albeit by different means. Crazy IMHO
