"Incidentally, as to your assertion that apartheid was implemented by the British this is what Wikipedia has to say about the ZAR: ..." The point is that prior to the war, apartheid was not necessary, since there were several theoretically sovereign states and/or politically autonomous regions arranged along ethnic lines. South Africa did not exist until after the war - when it was lumped into a single political entity by the British. Who immediately discovered that they needed to implement what were essentially apartheid measures to make it work.

You cannot be that dof boet??? Are you expecting people who cannot understand simple sums to digest the nuances of the vierkleur after it WAS a symbol of oppression for many years? You are not helping, the same as the idiot farming brandishing that flag is not helping!

Sanctions against the SA govt, are needed with haste, Malema running his ignorant and arrogant mouth again, forget Zuma this guy will be far worse... SA govt should be charged for allowing this murderous scourge not too mention so many other failings such as supporting other failed dictatorships. Next step is to push for sanctions against certain govt officials. When a farmer and or family gets brutally murdered hardly raises anything on the news if anything, a silly racist issue in a spur that could easily have been resolved in a decent manner gets 100 times for coverage than people losing their life in a horrific manner.

this is not s racist matter as people of all colours are being murdered by bloodthirsty savages, the problem is the people with the power to do something about it do nothing just let the law take its course they say but it hardly ever does. You want to govern then do it properly and protect the innocent decents of all races in every way possible no matter how extreme that protection becomes.

Acts of racism against the farmers: 16 years for a next-to-nothing lesson, Masonic caught, lies they the asheep have taught. Unlike the acts that kindle the unpleasant memories and ongoing never-ending "white is bad, black is good" experiences of the circa '94 CONstitutionally approved current apartheid era. Hmmmm.

Killings of farmers are very real and should be treated with the same seriousness as acts of racism against blacks. As farmers protest, one hopes the majority of them won't allow 1-2 rotten apples to diminish their genuine protest, through acts that rekindle unpleasant memories of the apartheid era.

I know the history, unfortunately the vast majority of South Africans don't and it will definitely not be perceived as a symbol of friendship by them. They might think that people who display such flags should be educated about the new South Africa so that they can rid themselves of their prejudices. It certainly won't do the farmers any good to be associated with old flags. Incidentally, as to your assertion that apartheid was implemented by the British this is what Wikipedia has to say about the ZAR: "The constitution promoted racialism as it treated European (white) people differently from Native (black) people. Although slavery was illegal in the constitution and foreigners (white and black) were both discriminated against, black foreigners had fewer rights than their white counterparts. Black and Asian foreigners could never become citizens of the ZAR; at this time in history, this was very similar to many other European countries as well as in the New World. Discrimination on the basis of race was prevalent in the ZAR and black British subjects were forced to reside in ghettos outside cities with Asians and blacks, whilst whites were free to live anywhere. One of the justifications often used by the ZAR Government for its institutional racism was that "sanitation and regard to public health necessitated that measure of segregation". Boere dot coza says "The constitution provided only for the citizens of the country. All the citizens of the country were white skinned Dutch speaking people and all other people, including the British and neighbouring black skinned native tribes, were all excluded from the constitution. So perhaps it is not really a symbol of friendship to black people (or us buitelanders for that matter) to be waving a symbol of exclusion about the place.

The Vierkleur should really be perceived as a symbol of friendship. It was the Transvaal flag prior to the second Anglo-Boer war, when the interior of South Africa consisted of basically several independent and self governing kingdoms and republics. That was before Apartheid, which was implemented by the British after the war in a then united South Africa, in order to ensure a supply of cheap labour to the gold and diamond mines of people such as Rhodes and Oppenheimer. By then, the Vierkleur was initially replaced by the Union Jack. If people have a problem with the Vierkleur, they must simply be educated about it, so that they can rid themselves of their prejudices.

So some idiot leading the go slow convoy in Vereeniging has a huge Vierkleur flag, which will do nothing for sympathy towards the farmers' plight - instead it will alienate them as they will be seen as anti-transformation racist boere. That idiot is reinforcing the bad stereotype that a lot of black people have of farmers here. dates

Siener saw them: Action will be taken against those protesting the white farmer genocide, whilst inaction is the official order of the day when a white farmer brutally passes away, stand down they say, we must rid the land of they who feed the nation, the hidden hand Orwellian script demands total annihilation, a dark side creation, bought and souled, the cadre terrorists on every station, white farmer deaths require no investigation, naught less should we expect from the Marxist red tide!

Steve must show his balls & be brutal with his selection.Our wing backs exposed the center backs on Saturday.Mathoho was basically playing as centre back & right back because almost every Pirates attack Gaxa was not there.When we went forward we didn't see Gaxa as well, meaning he was useless.Tshepo Masilela was also a ?.When he went upfront he failed to cover for the center back when coming back meaning the central defense position was left exposed because Pirates players pulled the center back player more to the left. Overall I felt like Steve didn't have much to do with the win.Honestly I felt like it was more of the players grinding the results. The keeper/Khuzwayo still have a lot to learn as well.He's no way near the arrogant Khune.Almost if not all his saves where about fisting the ball away, by luck one day that rebound will fall on an opponent.Towards the end of the match he was also failing to call the ball, instead being happy with team mates clearing away.The problem with that was because there was no Chiefs players upfront the ball quickly went back on Pirates attack.Rather hold on the ball as a keeper & allow players to push forward.

MIA Long Land lease of our only Airport is counterproductive & goes against our Sovereign state for such a vital gateway to World!. Vienna Airports have never invested in a Master Plan for the entire Airfield, during the last 15 years mostly it was done in an Adhoc Crisis management method. Now General Aviation Park 1 will go to cargo warehousing ...Indeed the Heavy Aircraft Park 4 (I believe 50% Released to MIP) must be retained, built it at SAP!

Great piece Paul !! With some more info it would have been excellent. The problems started way before 7 years ago. With no foresight Hal Far air field was destroyed to make way for the factories. We could have shifted the small private aircrafts there. Chopping our options to sell MIA was never a good idea. The small original military Runway at Luqa 05, is still crying for maintenance let alone upgrading it to the same level as 31 - 13, the main one. Had the flying coffin crash landed on the main runway we would have ended up with a destroyed Touristic season for the whole island. Giving away land around the airport for to private businesses is also a big shortsightedness, since Airport expansions will be highly limited for the future. Destroying Park 4 will be another of our options chopped off.

MIA 'industry leader'? You must be joking. MIA is interested in building more Skyparks and generating revenue from retail outlets and offices more than anything else. Perhaps you should see the figures of how much MIA spends on purely aviation matters and how much it invests in creating more space for retail shops and offices. Then, and only then will you learn where MIA's interests are. You may also want to check how many employees are focussed on aviation and the number employed for non-aviation matters at MIA. And now, Mr Expert, tell us which airport would build on an existing laid-out heavy aircraft ramp instead of besides it. There is no room to build besides Park 4 so to destroy a ramp when parking space is already a headache is pure suicide and just shows how much of an 'industry leader' MIA is. It's more like Missing In Action then anything else. As a purely commercial entity MIA should build its own aircraft parking ramps not destroy existing ones purely for its profits. It also had the cheek to ask for government money to pave an existing perimeter road and soon will go begging for government funds to build ramps after it 'sold' Park 4.

The offices built at Xatt l-Ghassara tat-Gheneb were for the Malta Maritime Authority and it was an excellent move (rather than a mistaken one) for a maritime regulator to be situated in the heart of maritime activity. Can we imagine the Civil Aviation Directorate located anywhere else and not in Luqa? Of course one can but there will be practical issues to say the least. The mistake at the Marsa creek was only committed later when the building, built with the maritime industry in mind, was allocated to the then new Transport Malta, regulating land transport from therein as well.

Well argued, prosit. Building on this space would be folly. The same mistake was made at Grand Harbour where, despite the lack of hinterland for cargo storage, offices were built right on the water's edge (for Transport Malta at the time) when they could have been buit elsewhere. In that case, warehousing facilities were eventually developed between Kalafrana and Ha Far, but as Paul points out, building on this apron would leave Malta without alternatives for aircraft.

Whilst the growth forecasts are not to be brushed aside, the doubling of air transport passengers by 2035 is a global forecast, with different geographical world regions registering different shares of growth. It does not automatically mean that by 2035 MIA - as Malta's international gateway - will process double the passengers it is processing. One must not also forget that forecasts remain forecasts, irrespective of the issuer. Using past industry experience as a guide, I am convinced that along the way in their 18 year time-frame, the published forecasts of today (which are plenty) have to be re-aligned. In addition, it does not mean that the related global infrastructure has to double in size. Other measures are adopted by airports worldwide in handling more traffic with the same infrastructural size. Aircraft parking charges policies are one way how to handle growing traffic volumes. I am no spokesman for MIA, but as a professional in the airline/airport industry, I am more than certain that MIA as an industry leader in Malta has its own reliable traffic projections pertaining specifically to Malta, and its own regularly updated plans how to handle local future growth. This without compromising its own regulatory compliance with international standards, and its capability to handle any eventuality on a national level.

One can also add the simulator hangar being built within the precincts of Air Malta's former head office. This land, together with part of the AFM assault course is immedeatly adjacent to the runway/airport and is ideal for airport future expansion, including taxiways and building of a second terminal (low cost?), car parks etc. With this white elephant now in the midst, this has just become more problematic. The simulator hangar does not need to be at the airport in the first place, and was a myopic decision. In fact it would have been better located closer to hotels, say for example the San Gwann industial estate, which would have been an ideal location.
