what people think about it

I agree but disagree on the arguments which I think propagate certain discourse we need to do away with. The issue of cost structures may truly be affected by policy and yes, however I think this falls away if the dialogue moves from capacity utilization to innovation and entrepreneurship. Capacity Utilization has assumptions that we need these businesses and it also looks from the lenses of supply rather than demand. By changing this and instead looking at it from the lense of response to demand and meeting a need capacity utilization falls away because intrinsic to entrepreneurship is the fact that companies are created and others die. Delta is leading the way in showing that a manufacturer needs to manage their supply chain and in response to customer needs identify bottlenecks and remove inefficiencies. I like the idea that everyone has a role to play and they should all play ball. Definitely there are somethings we can blame on this thing or the other but ultimately companies should be left to tough it out and POLICY should open up the arena for competition. Instead of issuing bonds to keep dying companies afloat let them declare insolvency and instead issue bonds to raise capital for "A Fund for our Future" a pool that supports Innovation and Entrepreneurship across the the economy from private business through academia, public sector and the civic society. Let's invest and lets start a POSSIBILITIES dialogue on what can be... let's move away from what should be..

bidvest bank I notice this dog regularly in Spinola bay and I can assure the animal welfare, the police and the reporting neighbour that the dog is very well kept and happy. This dog lives a better life than 80% of the population and is so well disciplined that kids play with it and doesn’t even chase the many cats that hang around that area. This case is a pure waste of resources and the owner should sue both the animal welfare and the nosey neighbour in my opinion.

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. account

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.

"Self Haat" is 'n vorm van depressie dit is 'n sielkundige afwyking en kan as 'n siekte beskyf word. Ek het net 'n probleem dat om dit vir iemand uit te wys gesien word as 'n "Haat Misdaad" maar as jy vir iemand vertel hy is 'n alkholis met die hoop dat hy of sy sal instem om gehelp te word is aanvaarbaar. Wat is Blanke liberalisme anders as "Self Haat"? Daarom kan jy met 'n geruste hart vir 'n liberalis se hy of sy is siek, daar is die bewys.

So goed ken ek ook nie die Kaap nie, maar ek was al as skolier (jaarlikse vakansie saam met my ouers) by Muizenberg se strande toe dit spierwit was, en Zeekoevlei in die Kaapse Vlaktes blanke woongebied was, en nog voor die swartes vir die verkiesings per bus aangevrag was, en die strande op nuwejaar nie so lokasies gelyk het nie. Dan was daar die onluste jare, en daarna het alles stadigaan verswart, en die doringdraad en hoee heinings het ook al nader aan Tokai en omgewing beweeg. Dan moes jy as blanke mos stadigaan iets begin agterkom het dat die wereld aan die verander is. Hierdie soort liberalisme kan ek nie verstaan nie - is dit 'n siekte, of sommer net kop in die sand steek vir die werklikheid en aanpas by die nuwe werklikheid? Die Weskaap, het 'n Duitse sakeman eendag vir my gese, is die Switserland van Afrika. Dis waar, dis pragtig, staan nie terug vir die mooi plekke wat ek hierso sien nie, en dit is jammer as dit verlore sou gaan.

Ek was by gemeenskapspolisieeringsforums, en die mense het nie doekies omgedraai nie. Hulle was beslis nie pro ANC nie. Hulle het eenkeer sommer 'n DA politikus uitgejaag. Daar was ook 'n afgetrede polisiegeneraal daarso, van die ou soort wat deur sy blote teenwoordigheid gesag uitgestraal het, en hy het reguit vertel wat hy gedink het. So dis ook moontlik.

Attempts to influence the elecoral college not to select Donald Trump. "In a petition, supporters of Hillary Clinton call on the electorate to vote not for Donald Trump but for Hillary Clinton. ...On Saturday, there were already 3.5 million signatories." http://deutsche-wirtschafts-nachrichten.de/2016/11/11/donald-trump-muss-zittern-clinton-fans-wollen-wahlmaenner-umstimmen/ I would recon that is quite a gamble, for then you go against the expectations of the pro Trump voters. If Trump is not elected as president at this late stage of the battle, the democratic system will loose nearly all credibility amongst the population. It was not only a Republican election, but also a Trump election. I can well imagine behind the curtains there is already quite a hefty scheming taking place against Trump in order to put the current system back on track again. But jumping to conclusions is also a bad advisor, however attractive it seems emotionally.

The North Cape is a good start to establish a area with a majority whites as it is so sparsely populated. Nobody wants to live there at least not now. Moving 500 000 people to the northern cape would ensure a Majority and you can be in control. Once you have Political power in an area you can ensure that development can happen. But even before you have regional power you can rule on municipal level. That would then ensure that new leaders can be Identified for our people.

The Northern Cape? Havent seen so much much of it, but I have been to Lüderitz, Kimberley, etc. That looks pretty like a barren moonlandcape to me, you could train astronauts there for the mars landing, or plant Riemvasmaak bushmen there. The coastal regions? At least Dubai had oil for a good kickstart. Nice for a holiday, but to permanently stay there? A white man needs some greenery around him, some inspiring nature, the green Hills of Natal or the Eastern Transvaal, or the mountains of the Cape. We are not bushmen. Even patriotism has its limits, otherwise Europe would not have colonies (expansion of the white races), driven by wars and famine und autocratic rule in the European heartland. But apart from that, I don't see that whites have many options for mobility. You stay right there were your employer and school is, and that is right there where the whites already are. Perhaps shortly before pension you may make you last jump to for example Cape Town, and then thats that, then money gets tight. By the time a huge and sufficient industry has been established outside the industrial motor of South Africa, the Gautengeleng region (humor on!), or like we knew it, the PWV (Pretoria-Witwtersrand-Vereeniging) complex, the whites will have dwindled in such numbers that it hardly is worthwhile shifting industry anyway. Hong Kong, the city of the Boat People (Chinese refugees from Mao's Cultural Revolution, tragic stories) and Kowloon, and British protectorate until 1997, when it was given back to mainland China. Perhaps there are some lessons for South Africans in the Hong Kong question. Small, the Boat People (whose remnants sit in London and parts of the USA - Chinatown - today) who did not want to fall under Mao's communism (I read some books, unimaginable horrible times for those people, lots of international disruptions were spared for white South Africa over the past century), and today are back under big Chinas auspices, but I guess the Boat People Generation are like the WW2 veterans - not many alive anymore, and their stories are carried by their children. There must be another solution, and white South Africas fate is pretty much intertwined with the fate of Europe and the rest of the West (Europe was the feeding source for new stock - i.e. white immigrants).

It is clear that immigration has changed America and formerly Republican, i.e. White states are now gone over to the dark side. After Ronald Reagan gave amnesty to, literally, UNKNOWN millions of illegal immigrants California went from Republican to Democrat. Virginia has gone that way, Colorado New Hampshire, Maine, so many. It is, literally, just a matter of time, perhaps just another few years and NO Republican, and NEVER a pro-White candidate will or can win. This was by DESIGN, not chance. Of course the average person, and the average Boer for that matter, does not know who it was that did in our nations, and are behind the invasion of Europe, and changed the formerly "WHITE AUSTRALIA" immigration policy. People blame "liberals" which is convenient and comforting it takes REAL COURAGE to identify the true perpetrators the true architects of White genocide. Dan Roodt is a man I admire. His perception is outstanding. He TOLD us that it was the SABC and Television that weakened the resolve of the Boers. They were, in fact, TALKED OUT OF THEIR OWN COUNTRY. No blacks could have defeated the Rhodesians let alone the Boers. It may take 5 minutes to know HOW THIS ALL HAPPENED: http://www.csulb.edu/%7Ekmacd/review-AR.html

I must admit - it took a while for me for the Trump victory to sink in. One is so used to constant setbacks. What it will hold for the whites in South Africa? This will depend on the whites in South Africa how they utilize this victory. They will have to perhaps hook up more intensively with the Alt-Right movement in the USA, so as to make their voices heard. And the Alt-Right intellectuals could act as advisors for what should be the best way forward for the Trump administration. For he will have to move fast to implement long term changes, to hit where it will be felt the hardest, so as to change the course of history after he has left his term of office. The establishment will not give up its privileges voluntarily.

The win that the BREXIT and Republicans achieved this year is a clear indication that the world's political outlook are shifting. I am now wondering what it would hold for us Whites here in the south of Africa, would we be over run by the Liberals that are running away from Europe and America? What is certain is that we will become the next harbor for people that are looking for an other country to live in as the doors of Europe and America are closing on them. What is clear however is that it became time for like minded white South Africans to put away the hatchets and take each others hands and start to work towards some form of Self determination.
