The developers’ lapdog
So the Tal-Papa area has been scheduled for destruction by the Developers’ Lapdog (a.k.a. MEPA).
This site is a highly productive piece of agricultural land. The Prime Minister in his budget speech stated that agriculture is of strategic importance for the islands seeing the price of cereals going skyhigh.
Now, the Developers’ Lapdog, by permitting the destruction of this area, wouldn’t want us to think that the PM was trying to take us for a ride, now would it?
Though the (Ir)rationalisation sheme – consigning an area the size of Siggiewi, most of it agricultural land, to the bulldozer – makes one think twice about that.
