You're not wrong about education but that's a different matter. Why do you say they tried to do the same with us? I don't know much about that time, but we are different from other colonies and even overseas territories still existing today in that we had an agreement to actually become part of the UK with seats in the House of Commons before we cancelled all of that and became independent. As far as I know Malta is unique in that regard.

Obviously I don't know about the situation in each African country but the North African countries (apart from Libya) serve as trafficking countries. I don't think we get refugees who are nationals of those countries (at least I've never met any). But Nigeria for example has to deal with Boko Haram, which is just as deadly as ISIS, if not more.

fcbm I'll try to answer you soon.

as for the Canadian idiot I hope that he pays with his life ( I don't know if there is Capital punishment in Canada) he has to be an example to others.
With his act of cowardness he is risking that others will payback ... and I am sure that they will...
Apparently he felt guilty and phoned the Police himself... but that should not be taken into account for what he did...

Libya wants Maltese authorities to stop smuggling of fuels
'Smuggling of Libyan fuels by Maltese mafia' every day [source]


''Maltese and Italian mafias send oil vessels on a daily basis to receive the fuel smuggled from Libya. We’ve arrested Italians, Maltese and Ukrainians''

one of the comments: SPOT ON ''Funny how Libyans can stop vessels carrying smuggled fuels but they cannot see boats brimmed to the top with people''

the English wanted to keep us uneducated (as they did all over their Empire) so that no one would be able to rebel against them. They wanted a flock of sheep. But we are a different breed (with all due respect to the other countries which formed part of their empire) plus we were in an advantage as since we are a small population it is easier to unite... We always had leaders to fight for our rights.

One of their major upset was to refuse the Maltese to have representatives. .. in the local Parliament...

edit : there are many more reasons but I am not totally informed to list them in detail

So I have read and heard a bunch about the incident, everyone says he's radical right wing... Probably all lies, or how come that he "apparently" isn't?

Either way: there are numerous people in dire need of "integration"...
Thanks for nothing, :pep: !!

Is Mr Farage still fooling himself that the UK has been getting on much better with the rest of us since June?

See this is the problem (or rather just one of them) with right-wing populists like Le Pen and Trump, and even Brexit. Even if they themselves aren't anti-Muslim (Trump clearly is), some idiots feel that them having power justifies their racism.
